THE BIG EASY

I finally had a chance to go through my photos from New Orleans which are WAY overdue. The second the trip ended, I caught the flu which then transitioned to laryngitis. I’ve been germ-filled, lethargic, and apparently allergic to blogging for the past two weeks. But, I needed to revisit these photos. It was my “Bachelorette” weekend after all.

I’m doing this whole wedding thang a little backwards. I don’t have a wedding date yet but I felt that a weekend with my best girlies was in order. I’ve always wanted to visit NoLa and I hate Vegas. So I rounded up my Bride Tribe and we headed to The Big Easy! Now, I realize that these photos don’t show much proof of a girly, rowdy, Bachelorette weekend… and I shamefully only have one photo of us as a group. Sadly, photos of my friends were replaced by beautiful colonial buildings and enchanting street performers. But trust me, the weekend was filled with beignets, dancing, jazz, late night snack fest’s, endless Pringles, and a Chambong [A bong made for chugging Champagne. Yup, we did that. Numerous times.]

I loved New Orleans as much as I thought I would. A mysterious city surrounded by art, music, and culture. And I was pleasantly surprised with their love of ghosts, Vampires, tall slushy drinks, and fried chicken. I will definitely have to return one day. This time with more photos of the people who traveled with me.
