Welcome back to Blanco with Leigh & me! Today, we want to share the best kept secrets of Blanco!
First, let’s talk fashion best kept secrets…here is the low down on my outfit:
a. The top is the Nine West Butterfly sleeve top in brown palm from Kohl’s. It was so cool and stayed wrinkle free all day!
b. My Chico’s Brigitte Tab-hem capris….very comfy…but I should have gone with my cafe au lait pair…the black picked up a lot of country dirt.
c. My comfy Clarks Womens Brinkley Jazz Flip Flops in Leopard…great for cool lengthy walking!
I was comfortable and confident all day long.
BLANCO’S BEST KEPT SECRET #1
We had a tip on this one, so we did not eat at home and planned breakfast at the Deutsch Apple Bakery, nestled on a country corner.
The apple muffins are worthy of dreams and worth driving back just for these!
Leigh Ann took the recommendation of a local and went for the butter bar…which is also amazing!
We were told that customers throughout Texas begin placing orders for apple pies for Thanksgiving in August, because the bakery always sells out.
You can also buy uncooked pies that you take home to cook! This place is fabulous and it is probably best that I do not have easy access to it!!
BEST KEPT SECRET #2
Here is another place I would return to Blanco just to be at this store.
Leigh Ann & I both love home decor shops and particularly one with lots of bird decor…we both love birds.
The West End Co was previously known as The Vintage Cottage, but they have changed their name and look.
From the moment you walk up the steps to the beautiful front porch, you will feel welcomed to a home.
This beautifully curated shop includes home decor, a kitchen shop and a fashion boutique area…where I purchased a funky scarf that I will share with you soon.
All in all, lovely decor makes for one happy home….
MORE SECRETS TO FIND IN BLANCO
There were so many lovely secrets discovered in this little town over the weekend and we do want to return.
I know there is no video today, but my Monday Motivation message is to make sure you get out and enjoy life once again…even if you only go a short distance from where you are.
Yes, there was a crowd…but there were several in masks either as unvaccinated or for extra precautions…but they were never-the-less still out and about.
Look for the best kept secrets as if going on a treasure hunt and talk to the locals about you…it makes the trip even better…why go to the expected places…the unexpected can be a real joy!
Thanks for being here and make sure you always…..
