Don't let the headline fool ya. Oh, we took a road trip, alright. But not for fun. Nope. We were subpoenaed to testify in a court hearing in SW Virginia. It was a looonng15 hour drive (the closest airport was Knoxville, TN and then a 5 hour drive in a rental car, so we just made the decision to skip it and drive).
The day in court was grueling and painful, so on the way back home I suggested we have a bit of fun. So....before you know it we found ourselves at Duck Commander.
I am NOT a reality television fan...with the exception being Duck Dynasty.
We moseyed around the store for about 15 minutes. Jay bought a cap and I bought a few books.
We were starving so we drove about a mile down the road to downtown West Monroe, Louisana to Miss Kay's bakery.
Miss Kay's Bakery and Sandwich shop was so cute!
If the temperature hadn't been 30 degrees it would have been great to have lunch outside on the picnic table.....
Can't you just imagine curling up on a hot summer day in this chair with a good book? Or a game of checkers with a friend?
Instead, we headed inside to the equally charming décor.....
and enjoyed a piping hot home-made chicken pot pie.
Nothing better to make your tummy 'happy, happy, happy' on a cold, windy, January day.
This was our view of a building across the street.
Don't you just
love this? It's so 'Americana'.
Everything about this little town is so charming and I just can't wait to come back.
There are so many restaurants, antique shops and boutiques that I would've have loved to have spent the day exploring.
A friend and I have already made plans to do just that at another time - hopefully when it's a bit warmer.
Til next time....
