A few weeks ago Kyle and I took a weekend trip to St. Louis, MO. It was wonderful! We made an upbeat playlist on my iPod and drove the ~5 hour drive which was really nice and pretty much straight there. We got in a little early, grabbed some lunch at the diner right next to the Fox Theatre. I had the biggest chili dog EVER. It was as big as my face. Impressive.
After lunch we got in line outside of the Fox and waited for the doors to be opened. We were there to see Celtic Woman. I was blown away. The Fox was GORGEOUS! Beautiful! 1920's extremely rich and intricate in design and decoration. So beautiful. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to take pictures of the interior or not so I didn't but it is EXTREMELY worth the trip just to see it! Celtic Woman was amazing! The singing and dancing was wonderful and it was just a really great afternoon.
After the concert we went to Elves Manor Guest House, where we stayed for the night. It is the cutest place in the world. It is a carriage house converted into a guest house. It is very unique and has the most delicious food that you could ask for. Karen the inkeeper is wonderfully friendly and hospitable. We had a wonderful stay! We took a lot of pictures but here are a few to give you an idea!
