Happy Thursday!

 Welcome to my life as a low maintenance wife.  I had my hair in rollers but my husband insisted I run a "quick" errand with him.  In his book "quick" actually refers to the time it should take me to run out of the house and not of the errand itself.
Hope you guys are all doing alright.

NOLA--DAY 2!!!

Oceana Grill, The Central Grocery Muffuletta (line was out the door and around the building), Cafe Du Monde for beignets (same fate as Central Grocery), Ralph and Kacoo's for hush puppies, Mr. B's (great BBQ shrimp!), Grenades for breakfast, bread pudding and hush puppies at every single one of these locations (we were on a quest to find out who had the best) and a 4 hour conversation over wine at the Ritz's courtyard-- I never knew vacation without shopping as the main objective could be this much fun and fulfilling!

A margarita to wash down the Grenade I had for breakfast. Although I must confess, I don't think I actually drank any of it.

Oh, did I forget to mention the crawfish, pralines, boudin balls and divinity (extremely sugary candy) stops the boys demanded we make on top of everything I previously mentioned?
The courtyard at the Ritz. We stayed at this hotel and I must say, I did not have any complaints:) I love it when a hotel has such lovely decor that you and your travel companions plan ways of making a dash for it with the room dividers, consoles, chairs, paintings; the list goes on... elegantly placed around the lobby.

From all of us: hope you enjoyed the pictures!

And... we're back to the Lone Star State (at the border of Texas and Louisiana)

Until next time

NOLA-- DAY 1!!!

When one becomes  a bonafide couple, one finds themselves dating other bonafide couples in hopes of forming a lasting couple squared relationship. My husband and I took one of our more promising couple squared relationships to the next level by going on a long weekend trip with them to New Orleans.  Here  are some pics I managed to snap. Hope you enjoy. I know we did!

Left Houston at 6:00 am for the drive to Louisiana, this was our first stop-- putting on makeup did not make it into this particular morning's routine.

Do you recognize the plantation used in the movie Django Unchained in above collage? It's official name is the Evergreen Plantation.

Looking over the balcony of the Oak Valley Plantation.
Have a nice week everyone, will have day two pics (FOODDD!!!!) up soon.
Until next time...
