Sweet Hico….

Last Saturday my friends and I (Kaye, Amy and Christy) headed down the road a bit to a lovely little town. Our day was full of fun and laughs and everything sweet. the charming store Homestead hosted the 2 day event – it reminded me of the tents at Roundtop.

scan0001 We saw some amazing vendors and got so excited just entering the tent . We were like 4 girls in a candy store! Some of our favorites were Willownest scan0002 This is a darling store in Waco! tooo cute – go if you are in the neighborhood.


Sweet Pea is a darling store in Athens. We decided our next trip to Canton might just have to detour us by Sweet Pea!

We saw some wonderful vendors from the Lonestar Antique mall in Ft. Worth and decided on our trip home that would be our next big day adventure…when the 3 of them get back from LA, Hawaii, Savannah and Ashville. I felt a little jealous of the fun places they would be going this summer. Oh well –none of the 3 is getting a granddaughter this summer so I WIN!! HEHE

Our day was not complete without lunch at a famous Texas eating spot.



We agree with this sign that it was one of the best burgers ever! Home made buns was the icing on the cake or should I say PIE! they are also famous for their Pie. We were so full from lunch we had to walk and shop some more before the pie. The waitresses laughed at us when we went back in for round 2!! But oh was it worth it! We chose Chocolate with mile high meringue, fresh strawberry and Banana/blueberry. We decided we would share and taste all the ones we chose. My favorite (much to my amazement) was the banana/blueberry.YUMMY! If that was not enough sweet for one day we walked across the street for some chocolate at Wiseman Chocolates.

scan0004 Ok – let me just say I have NEVER tasted chocolate so good! That is something coming from my mouth and coming from the daughter of Miz Bs fudge! I know my mom would agree- the different thing about it was salt sprinkled on top! Just enough to have that salt/choc combo- YumYum!

Nothing like spending a day with good friends…They make me laugh and add so much sweetness to my world!

Came across your blog from Katie... Not sure if you know her or not?!? I dont personally know her, but we have visited through email about gluten free "stuff!" Anyway, just had to stop in and say "HI!" I live in Hamilton just 20 miles down the road from Hico! Great small towns in TX! I went to ACU and LOVE Abilene!!!
