Americana Hollywood Museum: Denied!

Here we go! The last little post from my trip to St. Louis LAST MONTH! Haha, I don't know what took me so long! I'm sitting here waiting for Travis to get ready so we can head to Memphis. We're going to Graceland! Ah! Butttttttt before that, here is our last stop on the road home....

We stopped in Metropolis, Illinois again with the hope of going to the Americana Hollywood Museum. Crystal and I went a few years ago and had the best time! It is a strange place, with exhibits on Elvis, James Dean, Hollywood Monsters, Pamela Anderson, Angelina Jolie, and then random stuff like a giant finding Nemo statue, and some parrots. It is totally worth the 5 dollar admission. Sadly, it is closed on Sundays!

Crystal and I were so disappointed! I think the boys might have been relieved.

Doesn't it look awesome? When we went the five dollars also covered the Superman Museum. Such a good deal!

At least there were some photo ops for us to enjoy.

We saw these posters in a few Illinois rest stops and I love them so much! Forget the photo of my friends over the mantle, I want this, painted in oils!

It can be hard to find vegan food when you aren't near any big cities but we were pleased to find out that the veggie chili at McAllister's deli is vegan! We got it on the big potatoes and it was pretty good! I thought I would throw that out there for my fellow vegans!

We stopped at a Halloween store too, randomly.

Travis is going to be Spock for Halloween (be still my heart!) so I wanted to check out the liscensed costumes. How hilarious does the guy on the package look! These shirts all fit terribly, and were 50 bucks! I made something that I think it going to work just fine. And I  can't wait to cut his hair and put on the ears!
