Shreveport supermodel Ariel Meredith came home for a friend's wedding, but stopped by Barnes and Noble for a magazine signing.

The model, who's featured in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, arrived at Shreveport Regional Airport at about 4 p.m. on Friday.

"It's great to be home," Ariel said. "I only get to come home about twice a year, so it's always great to get home and see family and friends." She added: "I also love getting to eat lots of crawfish."

Her mom, Marjorie Meredith, revealed that they stopped at Fat Daddy's on Greenwood Road before she had to get to her friend's wedding rehearsal. There's always time for crawfish.

Ariel will be in town until Tuesday morning. We'll chat with her on KEEL Monday morning just after 8 a.m.
