Road Trip

I always love planning a great road trip!! On this road trip my husband I are going from the Chicago Area to Little Rock via St. Louis and Mountain Home (Arkansas).

Here are some of the planned highlights:

St. Louis--

Going up in the Arch www.gatewayarch.com

Anheuser Busch Brewery Tour http://www.budweisertours.com/toursSTL.htm

Mountain Home--

My Papa's 90th Birthday Party (Shhh, it's a surprise!)

Top O' The Ozarks http://www.topotheozarks.net/

Little Rock--

Visiting with Family, which always makes me happy

On the way home--

Lambert's http://www.throwedrolls.com/shopcontent.asp?type=Sikeston

All told it will be about 1,450 miles in a little over 4 days, but it will be great to spend time with my husband, see family and some fun sights along the way.

The Book of Love

I really like the song "The Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel. The sound is somewhat melancholy, but it makes me so happy to listen to it.

Lyrics | Peter Gabriel - Book Of Love lyrics

And though I've heard the song at different times, I stayed up way too late last night and ended up watching the movie "Shall We Dance" with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez. I was totally surprised I like the movie, ESPECIALLY because the movie all culminates with "The Book of Love". I recommend the whole movie, but if you wanna cheat and just see the good part, check it out:
