We road-tripped our way through Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and finally made it to Texas after a night's stay in a little town in Arkansas!
We stopped in Jackson, Tennessee for dinner the first night at Casey Jones' Old County Store. Pretty sure this wasn't a healthy meal (at all), but it was good southern home cooking!
We stayed in Frisco, Texas the first night in Texas. Justin was the best man and planned a great bachelor's party including a Rangers game with all-you-can-eat seats. The boys enjoyed themselves and I had fun with my in-laws and Corey's (the groom) mom, dad, and sister. We ate at an amazing restaurant (Babe's) that served everything family style. And then my in-laws were kind enough to take me to my first Ikea. Oh my. They really are as amazing as everyone says! I found a lazy susan for our kitchen table and an awesome scarf organizer for my closet. I'll definitely be returning to one that we have closer to home very soon.
The next day we made our way to Paris.....Texas for the wedding festivities.
We even saw the eiffel tower!
Justin and I standing in front of this fun landmark. (Voted one of the tackiest in Texas.)
The cowboy hat was added on to put this eiffel tower in the books as the second (or third...I got a couple different stories) largest eiffel tower in the world. Haha. We definitely got a kick out of this.
Justin decided he was cowboy while we were down there.
The wedding was gorgeous. Bride, decor, and all.
Amy and Corey...
Us with the newlyweds...
Pretty table centerpieces...
And we loved the candy bar!
It was a great trip!
When I made my way back to Alabama later the next week...Hartselle to be exact....(a small dot on the map...but tons of charm) Justin and I got gifted two nights in a little cabin on the grounds where we were working and staying. (You can see a glimpse of it to the left of the tabernacle.) What a treat (instead of sleeping in the bunks).
We loved our time away...but we're also happy to be back home. Hope your summer is lovely so far!
