Been away the last week as my fabulous little sister and her boyfriend have been visiting.  Great times were had, sadly they had to end today, and my house is a wee bit quiet as I sit here.  Back to the grind, and lists, and sewing.

But first, a glimpse at a couple of our adventures!  It’s always fun to have visitors–it gives you an excuse to play tourist in your own state!

Among the many things we did, our favorites were:

Kliebert’s Turtle and Alligator Farm (“Swamp People” fans may recognize this spot):

This tour was AMAZING and so fun!  Great place–and only an hour drive from my house.  Our guide was informative and funny, the tour was fabulous, and we had a blast.  If you find yourself in southern Louisiana, I HIGHLY recommend this tour–for only $12, it was a steal.  Everyone on the tour had a blast–kids and adults alike.


Abita Mystery House:

I’ve wanted to hit this place up for years, but never did.  It’s crazy–no, really–it’s CRAZY.  I mean, I love it, but it’s insane.  There’s a little bit of everything here.  I fell madly in love with all the vintage paint by number paintings, but sadly none were for sale.  Trust me–I would have come home with a boat load if they had been.  DEFINITELY worth the $3 to tour.  If you like “Hoarders”, thrift store shopping & folk art, this is THE place.
