change of plans...

the plans to go to shreveport changed the day after i wrote my last post! (figures!). my parent's were unable to make the drive from nw arkansas so sean and i decided we would hold off to go when we could all be there together! we decided to just stay in tx until the last minute! next thing we knew we were in the car driving to bentonville to spend the weekend with my mom and dad.

we arrived just in time for dinner on saturday...steak + potatoes! (my request :) ) delish! after dinner, we carried our drinks to the living room where we lit a fire (with the push of a button, ha) and listened to my dad tell us stories of my grandparents when he was growing up. i loved hearing the stories and learned a thing or two that i did not know before. i think it was midnight before we all made it to bed!

the next morning (i.e. SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!) we had blueberry pancakes and thick country style bacon, mm mm! later in the day we did bacon wrapped dove on the grill. doesn't everyone have bacon TWICE in one day?! : ) this is sean attempting to "man the grill"...


our game time food was fried catfish + french fries + hush puppies + fried okra + cole slaw + tartar sauce (i made it from scratch!) + beer = heart attack on a plate! SHEESH! but man it was good! the only thing better than that menu was the VICTORY of the saints!!!!! WHO DAT!!!

the next morning we opened our blinds to find this.....


NONE of us had checked the weather b/c they had just gotten all of this snow the week before. thank goodness it was just snow and no ice! we were able to make it home still, but we had to brave a winter storm the whole way! i was so glad we were able to go for a quick trip!

Somebody needs to tell dad that he needs to write those stories down. Not sure which story it was, but I'd like to hear them. What was it that you didn't know?
