Weekend in New Orleans

Thursday, February 4, 2016

Hello! Sorry for being MIA for a week, but I was away last weekend and started my job this week. I feel like someone has hit fast-forward on my life the past few weeks...I hope it slows down! I am trying to take it all in as much as I can before its a year or five from now and this time in my life is just a blur. Anyway, I wanted to share some pictures from my weekend in New Orleans! My mom and I went down to visit my uncle and see my mom's favorite singer, Barry Manilow, for his "one last time" tour. I tried to be good and remember to take pictures of where we went, and I think I did a fairly good job (compared to my picture taking history!)

On a streetcar! 

Lafayette Cemetery Number One 

The cutest pink house in Riverside

How could I not stop to take a picture of this?!

Funny story about this picture.... We were walking along and I spotted this dressed up dog and snapped a picture. As I took a few steps away, I hear behind me "HEY YOU NEED TO PAY HER FOR THAT PICTURE" so I whipped around and realized that the dog had a tip bucket in front of her. I was so embarrassed! 

Do you think they even like Mardi Gras?

Royal St in the French Quarter...Home to restaurants and art galleries. 

Jackson Square

Before the show!

At a parade!

These beads were SO heavy! 

It was a great weekend and I have to say that I think my mom converted me into a Fanilow...He was an amazing performer. Even though I think I might have been one of the youngest people in the audience, I had a blast singing along. I was also so curious to see what NOLA was going to be like, and I think my favorite part was the gorgeous houses with the second story balconies (like the one in the pink house picture). I wish I could pick one up and put it in Maine!

Its a short post today, I know, but hopefully I will be back on track with my normal MWF schedule tomorrow! 


  1. Seriously, I'm dying over that pink house!

  2. Wow, what a a fantastic weekend. You and your mom look adorable in your wigs, LOVE IT! And you're making me nostalgic for our last NOLA trip. I loved riding the street car and visiting Jackson Square while munching on beignets. Le sigh!

  3. so did you put money in the tip bucket?! i hate things like that when they charge you for pictures lol. i only know a couple of barry manilow songs, but i am loving your outfit and pretty hair!

  4. Looks like such a fun trip! I'm dying to go down and visit New Orleans and you're photos are just increasing my wanderlust!

  10. With its amazing 80s atmosphere and creepy X-files meets E.T feel this show is set to impress. Within its first 8 minutes of run time I could tell I had found something special here in Stranger Things. free movies online
    Its intriguing story gives information at a great pace and I never felt myself getting confused of bored and there were enough twists or turns to keep me interested. megashare9.me This also had some rather great horror sequences and their use of lights flickering while yes a common trope fit so well in to the story I was on the edge of my seat every time the crackle of electricity shot through my speakers and the lights flickered. los movies
    The characters of the show are the true stars here, I loved every single one of them. 123movies They were all great with amazingly interesting flaws and the way they mix and clash with one another was fun to see unfold. zmovies They certainly help to carry this show although I would say that the government antagonists of the show felt a little flat and under developed and not nearly as memorable.watch full movies online free
