In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Celebrating Our 2nd Anniversary!

Thank you making the past two years a success!

Since June 13, 2018, the Ark-La-Tex Weekend continues to be a great source on all of the fun events, lifestyles, food and so many more stories about our region. The team traveled everywhere from Hemphill and Natchitoches to Texarkana and Hope. If you think that there’s nothing to do around here, you need to explore this site for a good long while. Even during the Coronavirus we kept posting new and helpful material. Thank you all for stopping by and checking us out. We’re posting new stories every day and make sure to like us on Facebook.

Fun and more at the Laugh out Loud Comedy Club – I love interviewing local business owners in the Ark-La-Tex to tell their unique stories on why they opened their business. I enjoyed making this project because both the owner and host of Laugh out Loud comedy club were funny and a pleasure to work with.

How and why leaves change color – So, I love nature and fall is my favorite season. With the help of First Alert Meteorologist Jessica Moore, we created a fun and informative about why the leaves change into the pretty colors of red, green, and orange.

The Great Candy Cane Taste Test – This is one of my favorite videos because along with nature, I love sweets too. It was fun hosting this video and interacting with my co-workers while they guessed the mystery flavors of the candy canes.

I’ve love to cook and I’m always on the lookout for low carb recipes. These two are my favorite!

Keto Waffle Bread – Quick and simple recipe. So many uses!

Keteaux Jambalaya – My own recipe for traditional jambalaya, but modified to use riced cauliflower in place of rice.

I love to explore and I like to help improve the environment. I have to say, facts about earth day really do intrigue me.

Earth Day – Anyway I can help improve or conserve for the environment, I’m all for it.

Southeast Oklahoma State Parks– I love to explore nature, so having a wide-ranging list of parks to choose from makes this list standout for me.

So many stories to choose from!

Burger Shack Burgers – I never thought I would visit Fairview Alpha, La (Didn’t even know it was there!) until our Best Burger Battle in the fall of 2019. The story behind this restaurant is incredible and the food is just as good.

You can bring WHAT on a plane? – What started out as a conversation about the airline industry led to a question about what can one carry on to a plane. Some of what is on the TSA is a headscratcher and a few have some good jokes to go along with them.
