New Orleans in Review

So most of you knew and read that I was in New Orleans last week. It was absolutely AMAZING.

If you've never been to New Orleans, you need to go. Just to say you did! There are things to do other than party, I promise. Although, the partying is pretty fun too!! Just imagine 3 single ladies in their early 20's in New Orleans...yes we had a blast. We stayed in Slidell which is about a 30 minute drive from New Orleans. The hotel we stayed at was SUPER nice and the price was not bad AT ALL. 

Most of our time was spent at the French Quarter where the French Market, Bourbon St., Voodoo Shops, and drinking in the streets was happening all at once! Also, the balconies were just sooooo pretty I couldn't stop taking pictures of them:

Notice the sky in the above picture... this is what our weather was like the entire time. 
Seriously, couldn't have been any better!

I spent all my dang money and then some at the French Market.
That place is super neat to get all of your souvenir needs as well as some unique gifts.

T-shirts, handmade items, jewelry, clothes, you name it. 

Tried my very first Boudin (pronounced Boo-dan) It was absolutely DELICIOUS!

Saturday night we partied on Bourbon St. til 5:00 am. We left and people were STILL going at it!! They don't stop down there! It was a blast. Definitely going to have to travel back there pretty soon. We didn't get to do all of the things we wanted to because you really can't do it all in 4 days!! 

&The Botanical Gardens were beautiful!
I'll leave ya with my favorite picture from there :)

  2. Lucy's, The Crazy Crab, N'awlins, & NOLA PoBoys on Bourbon. Those two places don't ring a bell but I'll put them on my list for the next time I go!! :)
