MY Happiest Place on Earth

Since my grandparents have run away to South America, Dalaney and I are trying to compensate for their lack of presence (physically and monetarily) at our favorite place in the world.....TREASURE HUNT/DIRT CHEAP/HUDSONS Salvage Store.

Similar to various Disney locations, there are many dependent facets to South Mississippi salvage shopping.

Treasure Hunt (formerly known as Hudson's or Hudson's Treasure Hunt) is definitely the Disney World of salvage shopping: vast, breath taking, and always unforgettable.

Then there's Dirt Cheap representing Disney Land: definitely more expensive (it is CA after all), smaller scale, and only fun 68.3% of the time.

Outside of the mainstream salvage stores here, there are now radical places such as Hudson's Outlet or Salvage World which are just like DisneyLand Paris: similar names, language barriers, and places we'd like to visit but probably never will.

All 92.7% relative.

Mayan Ruins




Getting here was a disaster!!! We drove an hour on the empty toll road only to be turned away on arrival because we couldn't pay the $20 (yes, $20 USD) toll. We had no cash, no ATM access, and no debit card machines. So, after tacking 2 hours on our excursion we finally made it to Chichen Itza before closing!!

Let's Make A Deal Costumes


Made the morning of using safety pins, silk flowers, and tacky astro-turfish grass squares.

Chicago Food Tour



Dalaney waged a battle: Chicago deep dish vs. NY's thin crust pizza. In Chicago, the sauce was on the top of the pizza and that freaked me out. In my opinion, NY wins all the way. Chicago's hotdog wins the battle hands down though, complete with a crunchy full-size pickle and cucumber. Yummm

Lost in paradise

We're safe and sound in an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico. We took the red-eye from LA last night and arrived in Cancun at noon to sunshine and intense humidity, despite the dreary weather outlook. Tonight, I ate the most delicious skewer of grilled shrimp and indulged on bottomless guacamole. More pictures tomorrow! :)
