Weird Little Finds

During our recent trip to Arkansas we stopped in Little Rock to visit one of my college friends.
While doing research for the area I stumbled upon a little gem I just had to witness:
Look at John taking this adventure like a champ! *golf applause 
 This is a museum literally dedicated to purses through out the ages.
Yes.
Just purses.....
 And the weird things that women during that time period MIGHT have carried in said purses.
(My favorite being the 90s women who carried blockbuster cards and condoms....because we all know what going to someone's house to "watch" a movie really means)
 It was so lovely and bizarre. A great spot to awkwardly catch up with a college buddy and giggle over the randomness of the museum.
BONUS: The amazing graffiti on the outside of the museum


Have y'all found random spot like this during your travels?
I'd love to hear about them!

Mini-Getaway: Arkansas

Recently, John and I took a trip to Arkansas. Why Arkansas you ask? Well, why not?
One of the perks of living in a area I didn't grow up in (the south) is I can take random vacations to areas I never imagined visiting.
John and I stayed in a cute Treehouse Cottage in Eureka Springs for the majority of our trip.
I feel like I should be completely honest....I perhaps never even heard of this lovely little town until, mmmmmm, maybe I started googling the idea of a "treehouse" vacation.
Thank goodness for google searches because it was absolutely charming!
 The biggest perk of the treehouse cottage?
It's MASSIVE jacuzzi tube with an amazing view of the mountains.
It's safe to say 58% of the trip was spent in this while nursing a glass or four of wine.
This trip was a much needed one and also made me realize that I am indeed getting older as I felt no need to go out everyday/night. The idea of literally doing NOTHING but long baths, cooking food and sitting by the fire is kinda my 28 year old jam.

 This year was a rainy Mardi Gras but amazing just the same.
It's impossible to not love this city when you get to experience Mardi Gras season.
Everyone should come and celebrate at least once in their life!
Now it's time to get back to "regular life"
*sigh*

Glass Case of Emotions

John and I were talking the other day and discovered that we both have been secretly REALLY emotional these days. Like, crying over visa commercial of little girls growing up before their father's eyes emotions.
We've come to the conclusion it's likely due to the rapidly approaching wedding and how it's impossible to not feel ALL the emotions that come with such a big event. We both have lost family & friends, many hours have been spent talking about them and how to honor them during the wedding. It's such a big moment in our lives! It's crazy! How can we not get caught up in a case of emotions.
Here are a few random things that have made one or both of us burst into tears:
1) Ellen Page's amazing speech
2) An amazing piece of cheese from France
  (where we will be going on our honeymoon)
3) Listening to Same Love by Macklemore
 (this has been on going for many months)
4) Talking about our families and how grateful we are for them
5) Random moments in the show How I Meet Your Mother
(which we JUST got into watching)
6) Puppies
