27 Mar


This road trip is shaping up to be the most insane adventure of my life! It’s becoming way more fabulous then I could have ever imagined it to be. I’m not going to lie, our itinerary is insanely ambitious and we may die from exhaustion trying to stay on schedule but that’s part of the adventure…right? Rachel and I will have to survive the driving and appointment booked days armed with laughter, cameras, our beloved computers, lots of red bull and the support of all our readers!!

New things added to the itinerary

{Living Desert Museum}

{Living Desert Museum}


(Cup Cafe- Tucson}

I have a feeling that my Huevos Rancheros breakfast from the Cup Cafe is going to be pretty amazing!

{The Compound Restaurant}

I just LOVE this.

{The Compound Restaurant}

Is that not the prettiest dining room you have ever seen?? I hear the food is even prettier…

{Puye Cliff Dwellings- New Mexico}

Puye Cliffs was home to 1,500 Pueblo Indians who lived, farmed and hunted game there from the 900s to 1580 A.D.- I cannot wait to see it in person!

{El Cosmico- Marfa, Texas}

Sleeping in a teepee!! Yes Please!!

{Torchy’s Tacos- Austin, Texas}

I have been dreaming of eating a taco from Torchy’s Taco’s again ever since I tried one three years ago…so delish!

{Hotel Provincial- New Orleans}

This hotel is supposed to be haunted! I can’t tell if this excites me or terrifies me.

{Haunted Ghost Tour- New Orleans}

To really ensure we see a ghost while in New Orleans we have signed up for a ghost tour as well…

{Poogan’s Porch- Charleston}

The menu at this restaurant makes my mouth water- Rachel and I have decided that we MUST order the fried alligator salad because how often do you see that on a menu?

{Graceland- Memphis}

Elvis! Need I say more?!

{Smith-Byrd House, Alabama}

Is this not the sweetest Bed & Breakfast you have ever seen??

{Carriage Tour @ Middleton Place– Charleston}

The above picture is going to be re-created with Rachel and I inserted in to it.

Have any of you guys been to any of these places?? Do you have any tips? Thoughts?

    You will have such a fun time. One of the great things we did along the way which I find so much fun was coming across some great Flea Markets. There was an absolutely fabulous one in New Mexico that had the best stuff ever. Random type fun if you come across one and have the time.

      Barbara, such a great idea!! I want to come back with little treasures from the trip!

        That was what I loved. All the little treasures. Memories to put here and there around your home.

    You two are going to have a fantastic time. Sounds like a book in the making to me.

    I hope you’re going to check out the Marfa lights one evening while you’re there. Be sure to stop in the Paisano Hotel and look at photos of Liz, Rock, and James Dean from when they shot Giant in town. Also, the Donald Judd museum just outside of town is pretty cool. It’s located in a WWII military faciility that was used to house German prisoners of war. The modern sculpture juxtaposed with the barren landscape and bare lines of the buildings is worth the visit.

      I am dying to check out the Marfa lights! Thank you for all your ideas!!! 🙂

        Also – if you get a chance to head out to the McDonald Observatory (25 miles from Marfa) for a ‘Star Party’ it’s really nice. Similar to sitting outside at Griffith Observatory but in the middle of nowhere, so the star gazing is fantastic!

        AND…you must head to Terllingua, it’s a day trip from Marfa, but it’s wild!
        (sorry…I just got all excited for your road trip ;))
