Girls Weekend

I'm happy to say that Sara and I are headed to New Orleans this weekend for a girls getaway!

Woo Hoo!

I am just beyond pumped about this. We've already booked out hotel (pet-friendly of course) decided what tours we will be taking (Haunted History and a walking tour of the Garden District) and have been checking out restaurants to see where we want to dine. A stop by Oak Alley Plantation is in the works too so I can get some pics of it.

I was afraid Sean would be a little hesitant for me to go since he wanted us to clean up the house this weekend in preparation for Thanksgiving Day, but I told him I'd do as much as I could tonight and tomorrow so I wouldn't have to worry about cleaning once I got back.

In other news I did a small order from Forever 21 yesterday.

I got this dress I've talked about before:



This adorable long-sleeved shirt:



And a basic, plain white long sleeved shirt. Which is an essential in my book.

I still am really lacking in winter clothes, but I hope to build what I have a little at a time.

I'm so ready for the start of the holidays! Hard to believe that in a week it will be Thanksgiving! I started making my list of what ingredients I need and I think I have it almost completed.

There's actually already a station here that's playing Christmas music. I caught an Elvis tune on there the other morning when I was taking Sean to work. The other morning he had to be at work at 4:00 a.m. and let me tell you, that's when they play all the good music! I heard some Doors and Human League in the 20 minutes it took me to take him to work and drive back home. Why is the reserve the crappy songs for the daytime hours? Riddle me that one people!

Anyone watch the America's Next Top Model finale last night? I wasn't suprised that McKey won, but I wasn't that happy about it either. The whole finale just seemed kind of ho-hum to me. I hope next season is better!

Oh..and before I forget, funny story. Somehow Boomer got into Sean's rucksack yesterday, pulled out an MRE, opened it and enjoyed a 600 calorie Veggie Burger, complete with BBQ stains on my comforter and sheets. Oh..and somehow he managed to cover up the stains on the sheets with the comforter. Crafty little Min-Pin isn't he?

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday everyone!

I was so bored with the ANTM finale. Neither of them had good runway walks, and I wasn't really impressed with many of the other girls. I'm glad I wasn't the only one!

Kelly said...

I am so excited for you to be going to New Orleans! Have you ever been? If you need any suggestions ask away. I live just across the lake from New Orleans and will actually be in the quarter this weekend! Have fun!

Sarah said...

Yay new orleans! The haunted tour is AWESOME! I went on it 5 times;) have fun!

Allison said...

Your pup ate an MRE? Wow...dogs really will eat anything, won't they :) hehe

With Love from New Orleans said...

Yay!! I hope you enjoy your stay... it will be a cold one so dress warmly! Audubon Park is the best place to take your puppy on a walk!

I hope you have fun in New Orleans! I love the dress, and I love funny stories about dogs. However, the stains definitely stink! I also agree that the ANTM was a little less exciting this year. I really wanted Sam to win, but oh well!

Kelly said...

Two restaurants immediatley came to mind! Cafe Maspero's and Mother's!(authentic louisana cajun food) Both a very, very low key but always crowded! So go before you are starving! Red Fish Grill is VERY good on Bourbon! Slightly higher priced, (not snotty high) but very worth it!! Oh. FYI-Cafe Maspero's only takes cash! Hope you have fun and have a hurricane at Pat o'brien's in the piano bar! And don't forget beignets at Cafe DuMonde!

I'm sure many would agree that the best use for an MRE is as dog food. :-p

Liana said...

I love America's Next Top Model...I was excited for the finale all day yesterday but I felt like it was kind of a let down. Plus I really wanted analeigh (sp?) to win and I was sad that she did so horrible with her covergirl commercial and photo shoot.
