It’s Tuesday again, and I’m lamenting over how quickly the weekends fly by. We haven’t been up to much lately, and it’s been nice. Last Saturday, Kelly and I ran over to the nearby town of Paragould to check out a few flea markets. We didn’t have much success, but it was the perfect opportunity for him to stop off at a hole in the wall restaurant that he likes, Hamburger Station. He got his usual, ‘The Humburger” which is basically a huge burger piled with massive amounts of grilled onions. It smelled like White Castle the entire ride back in the car, but it’s a once in a blue moon treat so I didn’t grumble too much.
When we got back into town, Kelly had to work most of the afternoon because it’s another of his busy times so I was going to head to the house and read and nap, but my dear friend and neighbor, Natalie, asked me to meet up with her for some coffee and lunch at our neighborhood cafe The Edge. I love everything there, but I got my usual, the iced Oriental (espresso, chai, white chocolate steamed milk), the Mediterranean (garden salad with olive, sprouts, hummus, and feta cheese), and a special treat they had on Saturday–an Oreo bonbon. I think the Edge is kind of pricey, but they’ve got really great food, and it’s independently owned and not some chain so I don’t feel as bad about forking over the money.
We ran by the local library later that afternoon which is usually a weekly excursion for us. They have a glass case where they display different collections, and I enjoyed the perfume bottle collection they had out this weekend.
listening to: Erykah Badu’s duet with Miles Davis which is perfect
working on: I finally cleared out middle bedroom to make den/guestroom (with futon) this summer so I’m all kinds of excited about the possibilities there.
loving: This place Kelly booked for us to stay in Philadelphia (scroll to the bottom once you click the link to see the photos). I feel so fortunate to have stayed in so many amazing places during our trips (#lifewithnokids)! We’ve used Airbnb many times, and there was only one time where I wasn’t pleased and we’ve stayed in a ton of places!
