So here is a quick overview of our fantastic time in Louisiana.
I am starting at the beginning this time because when I end in the middle there will be no good-byes. I hate those stinkin' good-byes.
I first must give credit where it's due. Ms Jodie of Everything Vintage, who, by the way, had a special birthday on Friday, was responsible for this entire trip. If it was not for her this never would have happened. We girl's have managed to get together for three years now but this by far was the topper. Jodie chose the fabulous LaFitte Guest House on Bourbon St. for our New Orleans weekend.
Sandy, Sarah and I to this wonderful weekend and spoiled us rotten! The LaFitte Guest House was full of history and ghost stories. Unfortunately we never got to catch a glimpse of a real ghost. I think only Sarah was happy about that.
This place was just perfect for our weekend stay. Thanks Jodie, you know us so well. We visited Bourbon St. for the sights but we were really here for the history and just to be together. That was the best part...friendship.
Cafe au lait and beignets at Cafe du Monde was our farewell to NOLA breakfast.
Hard to say good-bye but we had other adventures ahead.
On our way to Jodie's hometown we stopped for Crawfish Etouffee.
I can't tell you how much I love these girls! We had sooooo much fun it's almost ridiculous. I miss them loads.
Of course what is Southern Louisiana without swamp life?
We stopped in the little town of Breaux Bridge for antique shopping. Another step into the past.
I will conclude our girl's trip when we hit Jodie's hometown. That way, by ending in the middle I won't have to say good-bye.
Happy birthday Jodie! You really showed us a wonderful time in your beautiful part of the U.S.A.
Now it's time to celebrate your birthday month!!!
Have a magnificent Monday, P.
