We had a great weekend, decided kind of last minute to go to Eureka Springs Saturday morning and spend the night.
This trip was long-awaited and much needed!
We checked in early. Took the top off the Jeep immediately. Had lunch at one of our favorite places, a biker bar and grill called The Rockin' Pig.
|Our hotel - I took this shot out the roof of the Jeep|
Then we did a bit of driving around. There was a Volkswagon convention in town. And tons of Harleys.
Guess who is dying to get a Harley? (yeah, NOT me)
We also did some of this:
I took some photos while we cruised around. It was a gorgeous weekend.
We made dinner reservations at Ermilios.
The hour and a half waiting list gave us time to shop a bit and get changed.
After dinner, we went to have drinks.
I got a kick out of this outside the bar.
The music was bad but the company was awesome.

I had a watermelon margarita- chunks of real watermelon in it.
|I had 2 of these. And later- heartburn from hell. Totally worth it.|
I got up early and walked to the breakfast room for coffee. The view was beautiful. I was too tired to walk down to the fountain so I snapped this instead.
We are preferred guests so we get a late check-out. We decided to go have brunch and shop a bit.
|My favorite coffee/ brunch place. It is underground.|
|This was amazing!|
I saw this shirt, thought about buying it but got sidetracked......
Thought about getting these underwear for Mr. Funny....
Of course we had to see Corwin. He is the main greeter at one of my favorite stores.
I found some great things. The beaded jewelry is great and many of the stores feature art from local artists.
This was my best purchase.
I put a bird on it.
|The artist makes these necklaces out of postcards and other things. There was a small twig and stone in this one.|
|Love the hand-painted beads.|
And these were the best deal, 50% off Uggs!
They are the most comfortable shoe, I ended up wearing them most of the time.
I got a great tank- handpainted and the lovliest shade of green. I will try to take a photo of it tomorrow.
|Fun on the ride home.|
When we got home, my new Anthro shirt was here. Love it!
Back to work this week.
My MIL is going back to the doctor tomorrow. She has a lot of fluid in her abdomen and the meds they gave her to help drain it haven't worked and today she was in a lot of discomfort. They are going to have to extract the fluid tomorrow which she is dreading because of worry of an infection.
My husbands other cousin and his 21 year old daughter are here from Virginia. His mom is my MIL's sister. He has been in special forces in the military, backpacked through jungles and up mountains and lived off of the land. He has great stories and we had a nice dinner with them tonight.
Mr. Funny took this photo of the big one studying today.
He was eating pizza right out of the box and drinking from a 2 liter.
I'm not going to push it because he is finally taking classes. Biology and accounting.
The little one will be traveling to Arkansas to march with the band in the Razorback stadium during halftime.
We need to meet up with our neglected friends and visit with family.
Thankfully I am caught up on laundry and housework and I went to the grocery store yesterday.
Have a great week!!
