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): http://www.kliebertgatortours.com/Home.html
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.

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.
