We had a wonderful time! Brian LOVES New Orleans, so he spent months reading up on all the great places to see and where we absolutely had to eat. I am glad he did, because we managed to fit a lot of fun into a short period of time.
Fun on the street car (not named Desire, sadly)!
|on the streetcar - the drunk frat boys showed up later to make the end of our ride hilarious - after working on a college campus so long, that stuff doesn't bother me, but it was funny to see the other people appalled at their behavior|
|The house I picked out on our ride uptown.|
|famously fast oyster shuckers|
|nom nom nom|
We spent a lot of time in the French Quarter, obviously, and we both decided we are now too old and boring to enjoy Bourbon Street. I am OK with that. I did have several drinks, which happens about once a year these days, and got some beads, so we were not total fuddy duddies.
|beads and a cocktail-to-go|
|mmm, I need another one...|
|Brian took a random pic of me in Cafe Du Monde|
|look - I got Brian in multiple photos!|
|the spotted cat music club|
|It was more crowded and fun at night, but my daytime pictures turned out better|
|my hubs in the park|
|old, outdoor seating, amazing breakfast|
|both bring positive things to the kiddos|
|they beelined for this when they got home|
|our interview team: Jerry, Teddi, me, Stephanie, and Nequel - and a ton of orange|
|two of our overwhelmingly orange tables|
|me and my boss, Jerry|
|I drove a van rather than hopped on a plane so I could give a ride to our amazing grads. Love them!|
