Sisters Weekend in Brenham, TX!

My 2 sisters, Julie and Richelle, are my best friends.  We like to take one weekend out of the year and take some time to ourselves.  This year we decided to meet halfway between Houston (where they live) and Austin (where I live) in the town of Brenham.  Julie found a cabin in the rolling hill country.  The cabin was easy to find and was ready for us along with a personalized sign on the door welcoming us.

We brought along our own snack foods, water and of course champagne and juice for mimosas!  The owners left breakfast in the fridge for us to prepare in the mornings – muffins, biscuits, sausage and eggs.  It was perfect!

After we settled in, we went to check out the closest winery, Pleasant Hill Winery.  It’s a pretty small winery.  We ordered a tasting to learn a little more about the wines but each time, we were told that the grapes from that particular wine came from Lubbock.  So we weren’t too sure if any of the wine we tasted actually came from grapes at this establishment.  Would I recommend this winery?  Mixed feelings…. The staff was very nice but the establishment was small.

Time for dinner!  We ventured into the town of Brenham to check out Volare.  These Italian girls had to check out the Italian restaurant!  Super cute restaurant with decent Italian food.  As we walked back to our car, we noticed the museum was having an event at that time.  The Brenham Heritage Museum was having an event to showcase the guns of the Texas Rangers and that included food and drink, typical of the saloons of Brenham and Washington County. Richelle and I let Julie do all the tasting!  

 

We decided to head back to the cabin with a quick stop to RedBox to rent the movie, Sisters.  HILARIOUS!!!!  We had been waiting until we were were all together to watch it and it did not disappoint!  We ended our fun Friday night in Brenham on a good note.
