Hey guys, it’s Ashton! I have a HUGE announcement. I have decided to become a construction worker!! ⁣

My friends at visitjacksonms sent us to the mschildsmuseum and I learned how to operate a tractor! I’m hooked! ⁣

Thumbs up if you think I’d make a cool construction worker 😎⁣

What is your very favorite kind of pasta? Let me know in the comments section!⁣

We loved this dish of homemade gnocchi with braised short ribs finished with freshly shaved black truffles that we had at parlormarket. ⁣

Not only does Parlor Market make their own pasta in house but they also cure their own charcuterie-- seriously impressive. ⁣

Where have you had the best crab cake ever? Let me know in the comments section below! ⁣

While I'm a loyal fan of loverococo.okc in my hometown of Oklahoma City I have to admit these from charofjxn were also really delicious. eatlivetraveldrink and I sampled these during our visit to Char located in highlandvillagejxn. ⁣

Char is just one of the many great shops and restaurants in the shopping center- be sure to check it out when you VisitJacksonMS for yourself! ⁣

One of the best things we've had on our visit has been this insanely delicious homemade biscuit with fried catfish and slow from crazycateatup. I would come back to #VisitJacksonMS again just to have this one more time!⁣

Food was one of my favorite aspects of visiting Jackson! Being somewhat from the south(Texas), I’m a huge fan of soul food and there were no shortage of good restaurants. From crab croquettes at eatbabalu to southern fried chicken biscuits at brentsdrugs, fried okra at the ironhorsegrill to fried catfish at johnnytsbistroandblues - I WAS IN HEAVEN. I’d visit just for the food and go back all over again for it. .

Would you ever stay in a haunted hotel? Let me know yes or no in the comments section below!⁣

Rumor has it that a Civil War soldier named Joseph haunts one of the upstairs rooms of the fairview_inn in Jackson, Mississippi, where I recently stayed. ⁣

An investigation into the hotel by one psychic claims she found a ghostly portal on the property. Another guest claimed the ghost of a child could be heard rolling marbles down the stairs at night! ⁣

But don't let rumors of hauntings scare you off- I never spotted a ghost during my stay at The Fairview! ⁣

Double tap if you have seen The Help”
1st two pictures were brentsdrugs The movie The Help was filmed there! Plus the food was KILLER!
3rd picture we met an actual freedom rider at the mscivilrightsmuseum He was arrested for being in a bus because he was black. Thrown in a federal cell for 5 days with 2 men on death row. He went to prison 108 other times. It was surreal hearing his stories. We were lucky to have met such a modest, humble man.
Can you even handle how cute Lincoln looks drinking his Louisiana root beer thepigandpint If you watched today’s video, he was REALLY into his BBQ and root beer 😆
Thank you VisitJacksonMS for setting everything up so perfectly.
