Happy Monday! It feels so good to be home. Are you the kind of person who comes home right away and unpacks? Or do you totally relax and get to your bag later? I’m sure you guessed which version I am of that. I have to get home and immediately unpack and do laundry if possible. This weekend in NOLA was a total success minus the one touchdown loss. I think if Grier would have been there it would have been a different story. Linking up with B who I got to see in New Orleans!
New Orleans is such a fun city! It’s all about good food and libations. Going in October really puts you into the Halloween spirit with all the decorations. They take their witches and broomsticks seriously there! Make sure to get a haunted walking tour in and then head down to Magazine street for the best shopping. Bourbon street in my opinion is pretty trashy/lots of inebriated people. If you want to listen to live bands head over to Frenchmen street and hit up DBA.
Can I even begin to tell you how much I understand why everyone raves about the AG legging jeans? I picked them up during the SHOPBOP sale and I am so happy I did. They are incredible soft and fit like a glove.
We walked over 10 miles every single day. Which is probably a good thing for everything that I eat. I probably eat my weight in oysters. I’m telling you what, it’s salads and protein bars this week especially after my beignets from Cafe Du Monde.
Since we had rented a car for the game we headed an hour out of the city to the Abita brewery tour. It was a fun change up this time. I snapped along for all of y’all while we were there!
My favorite street Royal at night. Nothing like catching live street music.
Love the fire fountain inside of Pat O’Briens.
Finally my favorite little back street alley in the city.
So what do you think? I honestly have hundreds of pictures from the weekend but sleep is calling my name! Have you been to NOLA? What is your favorite part? I can say we go every few years and each time we go back, you can tell they have really put a lot of effort into cleaning up the city after Katrina. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend!
