A chilly weekend in The Big Freezy...I mean Easy...

We took a girl's weekend trip over to New Orleans for a little sight seeing, shopping, and some fun on Bourbon Street. What we weren't expecting was that most of that shopping would be for hats, scarves, gloves, and a vast majority of the drinking we did consisted of hot chocolate! It was a very cold weekend in the Big Easy, but that didn't keep the good times from rolling!

icicles dripped from the balconies

the fountains were frozen

and sometimes hot chocolate just wasn't enough!

It is a beautiful city, and each time I go I fall more and more in love with her.

Have you been? Any favorite spots, or must eat at restaurants?

The Roquefort burger at Yo-Mama's bleu my mind, and my new favorite late night (okay, so more like early AM) spot has to be the Erin Rose.

Hope you're keeping warm!

That happens to be my hometown (from long ago)!

Never seen it so chilly, though...

Happy New Year!

It is a GREAT place to visit...I feel like I could spend a year there and still not see it all!

Anna, what a great hometown!

Thanks for stopping by,

It's amazing how the cold swept the nation. I was in New Orleans a long time ago, and all I remember is Bourbon street and some dark hidden place where we went to listen to jazz.

I ended up on your foreclosure blog. It is so sad the state of this state. So sad. all seems like nothing compared to Haiti.

Natalia Cardoza said...

ooo, I wonder where that place is? found a couple of little places on side streets that we really liked.

I agree Linda...I haven't posted there in a bit...but will be again soon...but yes, nothing compared to what's happening there.

Thanks again to both of you for stopping by...counting my blessings as I log off,
