Brett and I shared this past weekend alone together for the first time in what seemed like months. We absolutely love spending time with our family and friends, but this private weekend together was much needed. Especially since most of the weekends leading up to our wedding are filled with some sort of event or work for Brett.
And speaking of the wedding…Brett and I were able to complete our wedding invites this past Friday night.
As some of you guys know, Brett and I love shopping at local flea markets. In fact, most of the furniture and décor in our home are actually flea market finds, and we’re extremely proud of every single one of them. Since we finally had a weekend to ourselves, we decided to travel to Sunset and Washington, LA this past weekend. We heard the flea market scene was pretty popular in both small towns, so we couldn’t wait so set forth on our adventure.
Before leaving town, we decided to grab lunch at Johnson’s Boucaniere. Although Lafayette is definitely known for it’s Cajun cooking, other cuisines are quite popular among the locals as well. One of those being the smoked meat, BBQ and boudin of Johnson’s. I consider Johnson’s as one of my top ten favorite restaurants of Lafayette. Yes guys, it’s that good!
As always, the food was finger-licking delicious. This spot is so charming, family-oriented, and definitely the talk of the town. You don’t want to miss out on this place, especially if you are a local!
Flea Market Adventure
Luckily we picked the perfect day to get out of the house since the weather was absolutely perfect.
Unfortunately, the only item we walked away with that day was the sugar mold below. Believe it or not, I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now. I’ve seen them at Paul Michael’s and The Royal Standard priced over $100, but luckily we walked away with this one for only $29. Score!
However, we did come across a few interesting items like this belly mask.
