Better Late than Never...NOLA!

So I know, the ol' blog has been neglected a little lately. Truth be told - I've really enjoyed having back my evenings with my husband! It's great to get to come home, eat dinner, and still have a few hours to enjoy each other's company without him having to be in bed by 7:00 pm!

So...in celebration of remodel being OVER - we took a long weekend and headed to New Orleans. Chris had never been and I had only been for a mission trip (definitely a different experience this go 'round!). We had a blast!! We ate so much. Walked around the French Quarter a lot. Went on a tour of the swamp (and saw a 10' gator...NBD). And ate some more. It was definitely a much needed getaway. Here a few pictures from our trip:

Hurricanes at Pat O's to start it all off!

Yes we ate beignets for breakfast Saturday and Sunday. No shame.

We got to see several weddings parade through the French Quarter.

The most delicious steak - ever! Mr. B's Bistro - def. recommend 
Oh, just a random Mardi Gras parade!

Headed to the Swamp Tour!

This was the 10' gator - picture doesn't do it justice!

NOLA - one of Emeril's restaurants - so worth it!

Under that chicken are the world's BEST sweet potatoes!! 
Pumpkin Bread Pudding...yummm

Such a fun trip!!
