March Road Trip.

Hello friends.......we are home!   We just returned from a quick road trip to Monroe and West Monroe, Louisiana.

Sam and I love to shop for Antiques and so do our good friends, Marsha and Joe.   It's so much fun to plan a weekend road trip to explore the buried treasures that are hidden in a lot of small towns.

This time we chose to double our fun by making a trip to "Duck Dynasty Country" to visit the Robertson's and to shop at Antique Alley.

While we were not able to join the Robertson's for dinner, we did manage to drive up into their driveway and capture a few photographs of their home place.  How sweet of them to let us do so.

We also took in a great movie....."Safe Haven" ......Loved this moved......tears and all.    Yes, I did cry!!   I would highly recommend this movie if any of you need to have a good cry.


Food?  Yes....we enjoyed some delicious food, served up by the chefs at ....The Warehouse # 1 ......Olive Garden.....I Hop.....and at a cute little cafe, located at the South end of Antique Alley.
Great Food!!

On our travels home, we just so happened to run across an auction being held in some little {off of the main road} town.  We must have been there for at least a couple of hours and when we left.....our vehicle was PACKED.  Just can't beat a good auction, especially when good things go for cheap prices!!

What a great weekend!!

Sounds like you all had a good time... What do you do with all of the stuff you buy? At my age, we try to downsize --and not add more and more 'stuff' to our house.. BUT--we are older than you two!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh, my goodness, I so wish that I had known you were so close. I absolutely LOVE Antique Alley! I love the shop called Srendipity (a jewelry store). Please let me know when you come back and I'll come and at least meet you. Glad you had such a fun time here in good ole Northeast Louisiana!
