    Sounds like a festive alternative to Mardi Gras. I think New Orleans is the most interesting city we have in America.

      New Orleans is definitely an interesting town– from the Vegas-style antics on Bourbon Street to the unique Cajun and Creole cuisine. Can’t wait to go back!

      The dog with the mardi gras beads was so cute– I ran across the street to snap a pic!

    Ha! It’s funny how much beads can turn normal people in crazy, obsessed people. At least the way to get beads for Thanksgiving was a bit more tame than Mardi Gras 🙂

      So true! I went crazy trying to get beads and then just threw them away at the end of the parade. They should have bead recycling on every street corner 🙂

    What a blast you two had on your trip. New Orleans has such a unique culture, it’s really interesting. BTW noticed you are wearing your hair wavy…I usually don’t see you that way. Cute!

      Aw, thanks for the nice comment about my hair! I did go au natural in Louisiana. The humidity was good for curly hair 🙂

    Ah, this looks like so much fun. I’ve never been to New Orleans but it’s definitely on my bucket list. And I love the pic of the dog 🙂

      Hope you make it to New Orleans– it’s such a fun town! You’d enjoy sipping a Hurricane cocktail on Bourbon Street 🙂

    Great that you got to check out New Orleans. I have not been post Katrina, but I hope to get back soon. Such a fun town. I went for the Sugar Bowl one year when my college football team was playing in it. It was absolutely nuts.

      I bet the Sugar Bowl was insane! The locals seem super into football… everyone was wearing Saints jerseys when we visited.
