We had a great trip to MO. Fast but we got to see some of our family on the way back.

For some reason, we always get a parking lot view at our hotel. It was a nice hotel though. The one quick stop we made on the way was the Oops store.

I don't remember where I heard of this place for sure. I think it was Bless this Nest blog. This one is in Tontitown, AR. We went a little out of our way to get there. There is a lot of shopping in the Northwest corner of AR. We had been to the Springdale and Fayettville area before. I have always wanted to go to Rogers and shop but no time usually. I love the hills in AR! Was a real Razorback fan years ago. (I still have a tag on our van!)

We enjoyed browsing this store. It had a LOT of decorative items from flowers to trunks. It even had food! ( Although, that was sort of weird to me.) Cute building also, though I don't know what it was in it's former life. It had miniature buildings inside at the back of the store.

If you get hungry and are near one of the above(Lambert's) you must stop! We went to one near Branson, Mo. So good and way to much to eat!

Out front of the restaurant, there were benches, a very large checkerboard on the pavement, and these very large footprints. I think they were made by the people that actually ate all the food offered them with their meals. We were going to see if our feet spread out that far after we ate but we were so full we forgot! (By the way, that's not my foot in the pic.)

All in all, we had a good time, but there is no place like home!

We went to Rogers a few years ago! I too love the mountains of Arkansas! They are just beautiful! You really should get to Jasper! It's absolutely gorgeous. The areas around there close by with the views are Cowell, Lurton, Deer, and then Jasper. Stop in and eat at the Cliff House! That's where the deepest point is! I want to live in those hills one day! :)

Have a great evening, Arkie!
