A Weekend in New Orleans

This past Labor Day weekend I got to go to New Orleans to help celebrate my friends 40th birthday!

Whoo Hoo!

We had so much fun!  We spent time in the French Quarter and the Garden District.  We also took a walking tour of St. Louis Cemetery Number One.

I really loved the greenery on this random building inside the French Quarter.

Fun Fact: Filming videos of any kind is not permitted inside Catholic-owned cemeteries.

Nicholas Cage actually owns this tomb. Apparently, they have to keep painting it white because people keep kissing it!

The tomb of Marie Laveau.  This is where she is actually buried.  Fun fact: she liked to lie about her age on official government census documents.

Cafe du Monde.  Where the Begniets live.  I can’t eat them because they are made of eggs.  Stupid food allergy.

Jackson Square is quite pretty.

Wish I could have eaten here, but we weren’t dressed appropriately so we didn’t even try.  Also, no one even suggested we try, so there is that.

There is beautiful filigree work all over the Garden District.

I happened to take a picture of the one house not obscured by giant, beautiful trees.   It is quite a beautiful house.

All in all, it was a great trip.  10 out of 10, would do again.
