an adventure with my Honey

"And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long
Makes me wanna grab my honey
Tear down some two-lane country, who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul
Makes wanna take, makes me wanna
Take a back road..."
Take a Back Road - Rodney Atkins

I don't know what it is about country music right now, but it just makes me so happy!  All I want to do when I am listening to the music is spend my day exploring with Eric.  Sooo....

I made us a country play list
And packed a picnic lunch.
We hopped in my honey's truck
I put my feet up on the dash...

Photobucket
"Oops!  Better aim with the camera next time?  Haha I swear I'm in that picture with hubs!

And enjoyed the beauty we live around!


p.s.  I got girl sunglasses...finally!  I love going to Dillard's for sunglasses.  They always have name brand's on clearance!  (Not that I care about name brand, but who doesn't love getting $50-$100 sunglasses for $10-$15?)
p.p.s.  I'll be posting about the 4th next week since I am out of town working but I just have to say... I am grateful for this beautiful country that I live in.  I am grateful for our freedom, and even more grateful for those who sacrifice and fight for our freedom!

Girl. You've got me cravin' a mountain road trip. That looks so nice!

Dillards has something for cheap? Wha? I'm totally going to go there next time I need some shades. I always thought they just sold expensive stuff.

Also. You are the prettiest.

And Pinterest confuses me, too. But you just steal images from websites and put them on an online board to keep as inspiration later.

And my husband would be way freaked if I was muscular. I'd be freaked, too.

Tatiana said...

Gorgeousness! Those pic look very much like our mountains over here. It's probably because they are the same mtns. Haha.
And as always, you guys are such a cute couple!

I'm not really a country music girl, but for some reason, I love listening to Brad Paisley and Keith Urban in the summer. It makes me happy too. : )

And I cannot WAIT to someday see you driving in a pink sparkly car. Seriously. What an amazing hubby you have.

Jess said...
