The City of New Orleans

Dan and I get wild hairs sometimes and just decide to hop in the car and go places (depending on if we can get a sitter for the furry "kids" too of course ;) . We have a few favorites and New Orleans is one of them. I LOVE that city! It's just full of history, entertainment, great food, interesting people, beautiful art.. I could go on and on. So we hopped in the car, drove 7 hours and spent this past weekend there.
We strolled around town, did a bit of shopping in the French Quarter and stopped off at Cafe Du Monde for beignets and coffee. I highly recommend not wearing black there! Lesson learned.

Stayed out a bit too late on Bourbon Street and now I'm downing my 3rd cup of coffee this morning trying to make up for it ;).
Hope you had a great weekend!
