NOLA Bound!

Hi friends. Today's post serves 2 purposes...

1. To inform you that I might be sort of MIA for the rest of the week because tomorrow I'm headed to NOLA for a work conference. 

2. To comment upon a few random things associated with my NOLA trip. 

Now that the first purpose has been fulfilled, would you indulge me a little as I comment upon some NOLA things? Oh, and if you're wondering, NOLA stands for New Orleans Louisiana. (LA  is the abbreviation for Louisiana)

I am so excited to be able to have the opportunity to go to NOLA. It's one of my bucket list cities because it's old, Southern and home of my beloved Saints. :) 

Things I Hope To Do
  • Go on a ghost walk through the haunted French Quarter and visit one the famous cemeteries
  • Visit the French Quarter
  • Have a hurricane drink
  • Eat a beignet (or 6) at Cafe Du Monde
  • See the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (where my Drew plays)
  • Visit some of the older homes in the Garden District
  • Try bourbon

Things I'm Nervous About
  • The fact that I don't eat seafood and isn't like 90% of LA cuisine seafood?
  • The fact that I'm not a big drinker but will be expected to keep up with some younger...more tolerant coworkers
  • I also don't really eat rice...which is the other 10% of LA cuisine

So I may be MIA this week but you can always follow along with me on Instagram to stay up to date on all things NOLA. 


  1. I ate no rice in New Orleans. I did eat a lot of seafood. You can get by on sweets alone.

    Where are you staying? Most conventions are held so that you'd either stay in the Garden District or French Quarter if you're going for a convention. I found it a really easy city to navigate. Very walkable.

    Cafe du Monde is the least crowded very early! Have a blast!

  2. OH dang! I'm so jealous you're going to have beignets!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
