Since our trip South was taking us through Mississippi, we just had to stop in Laurel. As huge fans of HGTV we wanted to see this cute little town for ourselves. We didn’t run into Erin & Ben, so that was a bummer, but it was a cute little downtown. Of course we also hit up some BBQ, craft brews and the Hattiesburg Zoo. And did I mention we made friends with the spiders? Lesson learned…never walk in between trees in Mississippi as that is where the spiders live.
