Living Life in the 3rd Happiest City in America.

If y'all haven't already heard, the top five happiest cities in America are all located in one state - Louisiana. Of those five cities, Shreveport/Bossier City is #3! I'm not going to lie, I was a bit surprised. No one even knows where Shreveport is, and the other four cities, aside from Baton Rouge, are even less heard of than Shreveport. In case this is news to you, here's a little video to enlighten you. 

So what did we do to lock in the #3 spot on the list? Beats me, but I have a few theories.

It's almost impossible to go anywhere in Shreveport/Bossier City without seeing at least one couple holding hands. I don't know if there's something in the water here, but people tend to find the love of their lives early here. Marrying your high school sweetheart is not uncommon. Falling in love younger means being in love and being with the love of your life longer. Love = happiness.
3 years and counting with this guy.

Let's be honest. There's no shortage of good food in Louisiana. We love to eat, and we love flavor! If it doesn't have flavor, then we throw some Tony's on it. And we don't have to eat fancy. The best food is from the hole in the wall restaurants like Marilynn's Place and What's Up Diner?. And of course, crawfish

Shreveport/Bossier City is all about happy hours, drink specials and 2-for-1 deals. No, we're not all a bunch of drunks running around making poor decisions, but some SBC natives do like to let loose and have fun seven days a week. 
Thursdays are fill up your cup for a buck at Strange Brew.
It doesn't matter where we are, we just love to have fun. We don't need an excuse to celebrate apart from simply being alive. Every day's a holiday.

Some people don't know anything about Louisiana, and the ones that do say one of four things to me: 1) alligators, 2) New Orleans, 3) Mardi Gras or 4) the Saints. Regardless, we don't feel the need to be known by the world to love Shreveport/Bossier City. Even though I'm not originally from Louisiana, I've made some great memories here, and whenever I go anywhere, I'm proud to represent good ole Shreveport. 

So cheers to the third happiest city in the best country in the world! #merica


  1. I have never been to Louisiana. Maybe on day I will make it there.

  2. You should! Apparently it's full of happy people :)

  3. Yes! I eat so much I forget what I eat. Everything is so delicious though!

  4. That is so cool, Louisiana is definitely #winning! I know I love Shreveport for the mudbug festival and I love New Orleans simply because it exists and is beautiful haha. Awesome sauce. Great post!

  5. I love the Mudbug Festival too. I didn't get to go this year, sadly. That crawfish is so good though. Extra spicy. Yum! I'm going to New Orleans next week, and I can't wait! Thank you!

  6. my husband sent me that article this week. we just moved to alexandria from cincinnati ohio. i'm kinda shocked the top 5 are all in louisiana! i guess we need to do some exploring of our new home state and visit the top 4 cities now. shreveport sounds awesome though.
    p.s. new follower :)

  7. You should definitely do some exploring! That sounds like a big move. I'm sure it's been a bit of a change for you.

  8. yes, it's definitely been a BIG change! but i'm excited to be in this part of the country. i doubt we would have ever found ourselves down here if it wasn't for this job relocation. and there are obviously some awesome cities in LA to see and TX too!
