I know this is prob linked somewhere else but i can't find it. i got Carcassonne a few weeks ago and me and the g/f love it. i was wondering what are the best expansions for the game and why? we loved the river expansion that came with it because it broke up the map for farm scoring

Search the Carcassonne game forum for expansions. There are many threads on this topic.

Here is one to get you started.

The 2 expansions that are usually regarded to be best:

Inns & Cathedrals (must-have)
Traders & Builders

The opinions on other expasions are very different. As a rule of thumb - the older, the better, but your mileage may vary...

Inns and Cathedrals is the must have. You don't really need anything else excpet maybe Traders and Builders. In my opinion adding too much just overcomplicates the game. The beauty of Carcassonne is it's simplicity.

Generally, as already has been suggested, Carcassonne: Expansion 1 – Inns & Cathedrals and Carcassonne: Expansion 2 – Traders & Builders are considered the best of the expansions (indeed, a lot of players feel that Carcassonne should have 'Inns and Cathedrals' as standard). My personal favourite expansion is Carcassonne: Expansion 5 – Abbey & Mayor.

I agree with all who has already answered: Inns & Cathedrals is absolutely a must have.
The Leader Meeple bring to the game a little bit more of strategy and the rules about the Inns and the Cathedral make you think about the long term effects of some choices building cities and streets...
