So you're from "Joisey?"

Yeah. I got that a lot this week. Why, you may ask? Because I just returned from my 8 day excursion to the South. Yes. The typical road trip crew, sans Nic, ventured to Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas this past week. We took some time to visit Jordan and Megan's families while driving, and eating, our way through the South.

Picture time! :]

New Orleans, Louisiana: Beignets and cafe au lait from Cafe du Monde!

Baton Rouge, Louisiana: A craw fish boil. SO GOOD.

Megan and I played golf with my "Wreck this Journal" while Jordan had his eye exam.

Abilene, Texas: I lost at Mousetrap. Yes, that's me in the cage.

Texas has a lootttt of land.

Arlington, Texas: I met my dearly missed friend, Delaine!! :]

Imitating the cat pictures in Barnes and Noble.

Hot Springs, Arkansas: Rolands barbeque. We definitely ate well!

Me on a trampoline! :]

Nic's House, Arkansas: The happy couple and the lonely, missing her friend Christen. Haha :].

Megan and I with KITTENS! :]

Somewhere, Arkansas: A horse that caused a lot of traffic on 40-E.

Somewhere, Tennessee: Me in the middle of the road because...

There was a wreck that held up a lotttttt of traffic for over an hour. Complete stand still.

Despite the accident, there was this beautiful sky :].

Conclusion of road trip: Lots of fun and God is faithful. Throughout this trip I learned about patience, personal prayer, and the power of prayer. The Lord continued to provide and bless me this past week. I am incredibly thankful.

And update: Summer goal ALMOST complete. 4 out of 5 states visited. Who's down for another trip!?
