My top 15 highlights of 2015

Top 15 travels2015 was an eventful year. My husband and I moved into his grandmother’s house to take care of it. We did a bunch of traveling. We got Chris out of his apartment more than once. Finished our Civil War Passport just in the nick of time and made a trip to New Orleans. It has been an awesome year and I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings.

Civil War

We finally did it. After four years, between my family, my husband, and I, we finally finished my Civil War Passport. It has been quite a journey. We have visited so many places, from battle sites to old buildings.  Here are my favorite stops along the way.

5. Lakeport Plantation


Lakeport Plantation was the second to last stop on the Civil War Passport journey. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stay and have a tour of the house. The outside of it is simply amazing. We also liked the fact that you could see it from half way down the road.

Top 10 reasons I love
the War Eagle Craft Fair


Every year my family attends the annual War Eagle Craft Fair in Rogers, Arkansas. Unfortunately, I have not always been able to go with them. Usually because of work or school.

10. Food — One of my favorite things is the food. I tend to go more for the safer than the others do. So I stuck to nachos and a hot dog. They have everything from fully loaded potatoes to burgers to polish sausages. I also love getting the strawberry lemonade. It is the best thing you will ever drink.


9. Funnel Cake My mom and my sister love to get funnel cake. It is the one thing they get every year. This year they had turtle funnel cake. It was drizzled in chocolate. They loved it and so did Barbie.


8. Strawberry Crepe My favorite dessert to get is strawberry crepe. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it before I ate it. Oops. But it was so good I could not wait.
