road trip!

Spring break is next week!
My two besties (Am & Mel), B (Am's bf), and I 
are going on a road trip to Texas!

Road trips are so much fun!
I am super excited about this trip because it will be the 
first time I cross the Mississippi River!
We are planning on stopping along the way, 
and taking tons of pictures.
I have seriously bought 2 extra batteries for my camera;)

Some close friends of ours live on a ranch 
right outside of Amarillo, TX. 
We have not seen them for about a year and we 
decided this was a perfect time to visit. 
So this Saturday morning at 5 AM we will be 
hitting the road for ≈22 hours or 1,374 miles.
We will stop somewhere Saturday night once we get 
tired of driving and will finish up the trip Sunday.
Poor B will be stuck in a car full of women 
for basically 4 days total:)
{2 there & 2 back}

Here is our {going} route:
{we are going to take a different route coming home}

We will be going through the following major cities:

Atlanta, GA

Birmingham, AL

Memphis, TN

Little Rock, AR

Oklahoma City, OK

Amarillo, TX

And this is where I need your help.
Do any of you have any suggestions of fun places 
we should stop throughout our trip?
Or do you know of any "food-to-die-for-restaurants"
we should stop at?

Have you ever been on a road trip?
If so, where to and what was your favorite part of the trip?

  1. I don't know how long you'll be in OKC but, since you'll be taking I-40 you'll be going near downtown. The Murrah Bombing memorial is pretty interesting. And my favorite italian place in the world is in OKC, but it's a little out of the way for you. It's called Bella Vista, and I don't think they have a website but they're in the phone book, you can enter it into mapquest and see how far out of your way it will take you. It's just a couple of miles off the highway and SOOOO worth it.

  2. How fun! That sounds like a blast! I've been on a roadtrip once from TX to AZ but I was young and hated it! I bet I'd love to take one now :)

    P.S. You won my giveaway!! Can you send me your full name and mailing address when you get a chance?
