NOLA For The Weekend? Why Not!

I hope staying up past midnight isn't a recurring theme, but tomorrow {Friday night} I know it's going to be a late night. You see, we have up and decided to hit the road for a quick trip to New Orleans! Long story short, I brought my truck and we trailered our '71 Monte Carlo, so now Will needs a daily driver. Unlike a normal person, he has decided to search every state around us, and has come up with a car in Covington, LA. I could care less about Covington, but any time I can slip in some time in The Big Easy, I'm all for it.

I've probably never mentioned it, but Will lived in Louisiana as an Air Force Brat. Mind you, he was very young at the time, and not ready to party it up on Bourbon Street, so this will be his first time in NOLA. Oooh doggie am I ready to pop his cherry. Bring on the Cajun food, Mardi Gras shenanigans, and Beignets! We only have about 24 hours {Why the heck didn't we plan to stay longer?}, but I'm positive we can have a rip roarin' good time. My goal is to be able to drive my truck home sans hangover. Maybe.

Here we are at the last parade we went to...


I swear I'm not a priss, however I will never say no to someone carrying me. C'mon, who wouldn't want to avoid crazy crowds, city blocks, and blisters on your feet? Ya know?


I have a feeling we will have just as much fun this weekend! Did I mention I love having time off...indefinitely? It is great being able to pick up and go whenever we want. A girl can definitely get used to this ;)

Have you ever been to Mardi Gras or New Orleans?

I looooove NOLA! I am more than confident that you will definitely end up at Cafe du Monde because it's right there close the action and it has the BEST beignets! But if you have time, you should definitely go to Parkway Tavern and Bakery - they have the best po'boys!! :) Anyway, have fun!

I went to Mardi Gras... I guess it was almost 3 years ago now and had a blast!! Well that is until someone picked my purse and jacked my wallet and ALL my cash... that sucked ass!

I'd go back in a heartbeat (we've been for Halloween too - SO FUN, not as crowded), but next time I'm carrying all my money in my bra!!!

Time off indefinitely sounds damn perfect!!! I have never been to NOLA. I hear that it's dirty but also that it's a place worth visiting. It's on my list! Have a blast.
