New Orleans

After the Mardi Gras craziness had settled down, we took a quick weekend girls' trip there. I was the only one of the three who had not ever been there before. First stop....beignets at the renown Cafe Du Monde. The business has been in the French Quarter forever. I know why! Day or night 24/7 they are busy. It's unbelievable how many they serve in a day's time.



One of my favorite tours was Mardi Gras World. This is a behind the scenes tour of how they design and make all the floats.





We stopped at a local bakery to get an awesome poor boy.


We had desserts at Emeril's. Couldn't go wrong with any choice!



We toured some plantations and took a couple of city tours which are always a great way to learn the history. Both of our tour guides experienced Hurricane Katrina first hand--surviving and rebuilding. Hearing their stories was amazing!
