road trip!

marty turned the big 2-6 this weekend so we decided to hit the road and drive to memphis for one night and st. louis the next. marty had never been to memphis (but i have! see photos here and here), and meanwhile his sister nora has been living in st. louis for almost 4 years and we had never visited her, so the birthday road trip was born.
of course the trip started at 7am with a trip to the maple st. patisserie for some delicious pastries and coffee. i swear they put crack in their baked goods, they are so addicting! the ham and cheese croissant is the biggest breakfast indulgence but its totally worth it.
oh, hilarious roadside landmarks!
i spent the second half of our leg to memphis searching for a great place to eat lunch on my yelp app and found gus's world famous hot & spicy chicken and O.M.G. is all i can say. mind you, the photos are blurry not because my camera isn't awesome - because it is - they are blurry because we were both too excited about eating what turned out to be the best fried chicken both of us had ever had to hold the camera straight.
