New Orleans

Sorry I've been MIA but I've been down in the Big Easy visiting family & friends, shopping, and eating enough shrimp for the entire year. I refuse to step onto a scale for the next 3 weeks. I had so much fun. My hubby had a conference so we stayed at the hotel that it was being held at. We normally stay at the Le Pavillion but this trip we stayed at the Ritz Carlton. I must say, the location was great, the food was excellent, and the staff is beyond friendly. We are definitely staying at the Ritz our next trip to NOLA.

One of the best features of our room....a vanity! I loved it! My husband and I are usually fighting for the bathroom sink and mirror. He's trying to shave and I'm trying to apply make-up at the same time. It's amazing how much peace a little simple table could bring to our marriage during our stay, LOL.

Also, the Ritz Carlton was filled with antiques. I was drooling over the china that adorned the walls. I snuck through one of the lobby's late at night to snap this picture. I was too embarrassed to take pictures during high traffic hours. I didn't want anyone to think I was some crazy woman. However, all of you know how much I love china patterns and antiques. I just had to get a few snap shots for my blog.

Look at this amazing outfit. It screams New Orleans. I love the hat. Anyone else a hat lover? I have several in my closet. It makes me want to meet the ladies for afternoon tea.

Of course we walked through the Quarter and even shopped a bit at the French Market.

But mostly we pigged out at our favorite restaurants and enjoyed some old fashion New Orleans music.
