road trippin

This past weekend I went down to the Bayou in Thibodaux, La with 2 of my best friends Melissa and Megan. Melissa is from there and she showed us EVERYTHING, including her parking spot at her high school! It was such a blast! Saturday we went to Baton Rouge because her husband had an Adventure Race! We took advantage of the day and went shopping and eating! Of course I convinced them to go to my favorite Izzo's Illegal Burrito and Yogurtland. #theydidnthateit  Melis and Megan also went to Anthropologie for the first time ever! Their faces lit up as soon as we walked in the building! We spent TONS of time with her lovely family and most importantly ate a ridiculous amount of food!
In Thibodaux, is the Laurel Valley Slave quarters amongst tons and tons of sugar cane fields. It's actual slave houses and it was so cool/sad to see. The homes were small and there is tons of land, it reminded me why I have such a heart for modern day slavery/human trafficking. 


 outhouse that has been tipped over. 
It looks like one house but there are two doors which makes it two houses the size of one house.

Lis INSISTED on us eating sugar cane. 
note: it's not ready until the fall
note: it was gross

on this trip, I learned Lis is a former piano player.
also, she has NO clue i took this. :)

this is the most ultimate jam candle from Anthro.
note: i accept gifts.
