Hot in Arkansas

Cool Stuff

my mom & my great-aunt Lucille, who we drove to Hot Springs, Arkansas to see!

I went on a roadtrip last week with my mom to visit family in Arkansas. I thought it was hot in NOLA – somehow it managed to be even hotter there! It was nice to see family, and ESPECIALLY nice to have a few days with my mom. The road trip there was interesting, we got to drive through Transylvania, Louisiana:

I’d love to see a creepy child-zombie movie set at this abandoned elementary school…

There was also a theme of religious coffee shops in rural Louisiana:

Jehovah Java, Lake Providence, Louisiana

Then we made it to Hot Springs to visit my great-aunt Lucille. We did a little sight-seeing in downtown historic Hot Springs before lunch:

We discovered a cute little vintage shop, Stella Mae’s Aristocrat, where I picked up a couple of pieces of vintage jewelry:

All in all, a nice trip, but I’m glad to be home!

    I went to Hot Springs last December and it was the perfect weekend trip! I’m going back this winter too so I’ll have to check out that shop :)

      I hope you like the shop! I wish we’d had more time to spend in Hot Springs but it was a whirlwind trip visiting family all over the state!

  • Two things:
    1. That giant chicken is nothing short of epic.
    2. Your mother and Great Aunt Lucille are two beautiful ladies!

      Thanks Lindsay!

      Yes, that chicken was pretty awesome!

      And you’re right – they are both beautiful, inside & out!
