on friday i took a quick trip with my parents to a neat old little town not far down the road.
three things i'm grateful for:
retired parents who live one mile away,
retired parents who live one mile away who love to do things like this with me.
the town itself is very cool.
old streets lined with antique and junk shops.
shops full of bargains and ideas.
and super sweet southern hospitality.
the shop 'old things new' is one of my faves.
my parents are good sports.
they even posed in front of a chippy brick wall and let me take a few pics of them.
although i was given strict orders not to post them here.
maybe one day. if i get angry at them.
just kidding mom!
after we shopped, we ate.
there's this cool restaurant called 'cahoots' that has great food and a great atmosphere.
and for dessert, homemade fried peach pies with vanilla ice cream!
who could possibly pass that up?
trying not to smile.
while i embarrass him with my big ol' camera.
God love 'em.
just a little teeny taste of the funky that is 'cahoots.'
if any of my new jersey, kansas or washington state peeps come visit, we will be making a trip here for lunch.
y'all will LOVE it.
and the quiche is killer.
at the end of the day, we left with an old vintage mirror and a huge grain bucket.
both for my mom.
i couldn't believe i didn't buy a thing.
i am trying to save my money for davis boy.
and if that doesn't show you how much i love that kid, i don't know what would.
we will be visiting this little piece of americana again soon.
it just makes me happy.
as predicted, it was a great day.
