One of my best friend was while I was in Australia got married recently. I have written about how we met before, but make a long story short, IT IS A SMALL WORLD. Her wedding was a destination wedding since she and her partner live in Brisbane, her family lives here, and they both have lived many other places. It the most international wedding I have ever seen.
While getting ready for the wedding, we decided to go to brunch at Court of Two Sisters and have Mani/ Pedis. Ameilia was the most laid back bride I have ever seen. Two days before her wedding, while at the nail salon, she casualy mentions, "you know I might want a new dress for the Welcome dinner and maybe a second dress to change into at the recetion, since I am going to wear the dress again for the Australia ceremony." I love how laid back and just all about enjoying the people she truly was. She scheudled so many meet ups just to catch up with people, she did an amazing job letting everyone know she was truly happy they were there.
Mom met me in New Orleans and we hung out around all of the wedding fun. I will make a post about all the wedding fun, but this is mostly about all the things we did around New Orleans. Ameilia scheduled a lot of meet ups throughout the time, but we did manage to squeeze in a little other fun also.
Mom and I successfully fit in Cafe Du Monde everyday we were there. Their coffee with chickory and steamed milk was amazing, and then who can pass up hot beignets?
We fit in A LOT of people watching, if you have never experienced Burbon Street, you are really missing out on the best people watching places around. If someone can dream it, you will see it on Burbon Street.
Amazing Ladies Lunch spread
Another fun meet up to watch a sabering of bubbles at Brennans (watch in video)
Mom and I also fit in some quite time in the outside area of our hotel for some quite relaxing time.
Check out some of the people watching and street preformers. I have never really liked New Orleans to be perfectly honest with you, but I loved the city this time. I think not being so hot helped the smell a bit, and helped encourage just sitting outside and soaking it all in. What is your favorite thing to do in New Orleans?
