Last weekend (yes, I am just now getting around to blogging about it), I went to Eureka Springs with some of my friends!  We had a fun time (except for the driving because I get car sick... boo).

Here we are driving around town:

We went to this cute shop.  Looks just like my kind of place!  Too bad I didn't get anything!

It is a cute little town!  And I think we were pretty cute too lol!

What is a vacation without sticking your head into a gross plywood cut-out?!?!

Our group at Ermilios.  We had a very nice dinner.

Here we are in front of the haunted Crescent Hotel.  Please excuse the pasty whiteness of my legs.

My friends tricked me into going on the haunted ghost tour.  This is how I felt about that...

This is the most haunted room in the whole hotel.  There is a 2 year wait to stay in this room.  No thanks!  I would specifically ask for the least haunted room! ha!

Here we are in the morgue.
We also went to see the Christ of the Ozarks statue.  I have been before but not in a long time.
Me (with a funny face due to the blinding sun!) and Jesus:

It was a fun trip!  I have some pretty awesome friends!  I only got one souvenir- a bracelet.  I have not had good shopping luck lately!  Hopefully that will change soon!

Random Happenings

Too much has happened since I last posted, and I am exhausted, so this is going to be a bunch of random bullets....

1.  Man it is HOT!  I took this picture a couple of weeks ago, and sadly this was not the max.  We actually broke a record here!

2.  I went with my friend Cherry to pick up her wedding dress!  Yay!

3.  I had a work conference in Hope.  I got a watermelon.

They are known for their watermelons and have a festival every year that should be coming up soon.  (By the way- my hopes for finding something fun in Hope were smashed.  All I found was a barn and some horse poop.  It is in the middle of nowhere, unless you want to see the house in which President Clinton grew up.)

4.  I made some delicious stir fry.

5.I went to the circus!  It was a fun time, although they wanted $12 for a snow cone.  No Way!

6.  My poor car has already been in the shop.  It was a simple fix (a bent heat shield) and is running like a champ now.

7.  I went to my first Arkansas Traveler's game of the season!  I don't know how it ended since we left early due to the heat, but it sure wasn't looking good.

8.  I rediscovered my love of Cheez-its.  I mean like, I really love them.  :)

9.  I went shopping yesterday because it was Arkansas' tax free holiday.  I like not having to pay tax.  Plus I had a coupon for 20% off at Kohls, so it was an extra good deal.

10.  I got chosen to be in a laundry detergent trial.  I got 2 free bottles of detergent to review over the next 4 weeks.  I am pretty pumped about that!  I love free stuff!!
