New Orleans | 12.16-18.2011

New Orleans is only a 6 hour drive from Houston, so why we have lived in Houston for almost 3 years and have NOT frequented until now is beyond me!

Scott took me on a 3-day trip New Orleans for my birthday a few weekends ago! We so happened to go during the weekend of the New Orleans Bowl, in which the UL-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns played. Oh, and the whole Rajin' Cajun football team plus their cheerleaders and families were staying at our hotel.... Made for some late nights of listening to drunk people screaming down the halls until 3:00 a.m....

Aside from that, though! We had a blast :) We listened to jazz music, ate po-boys, shopped, walked around a beautiful park, and learned a bit of the history of New Orleans!

Day 1:
 Haunted History Tour in the French Quarter
 Little walk down Bourbon Street
 Our haunted history tour guide

Day 2:
Bird who wanted to eat my beignets
 Beignets for breakfast at Cafe Beignet
 Macarons at Sucre on Magazine Street
Po-Boys at Guy's
 Jazz music at BMC (Balcony Music Club)

Day 3:
 French pastries for breakfast at La Boulangerie
 Walk through Audubon Park

And then we drove 6 hours home!

Tappin' my feet,
