    NOLA in a nutshell: the finale!

    The third (and final!) part of this recap series is going to be all about what I wish I would have done and some other photos that I wanted to share but didn’t have a place for. Part one was all about food and part two was all about activities. Catch up first! WHAT I WISH I DID Ride the St. Charles trolley through the Garden District – I was hellbent on getting to see the huge houses in the Garden District. After the swamp tour, we had a little while before dinner so my mom and I decided to Uber over to the Garden District. Our driver was so…

    NOLA in a nutshell (part two)

    Now that you’ve¬†digested (ba dum dum) part one of my NOLA recap, let’s move on to part two! As I mentioned in my last post, I came to New Orleans for the photo opportunities. I mean, I wanted to have a good time and experience the city too, but food and photos were my top priority. This post is probably going to be photo heavier than the last one. You’ve been warned. WHAT WE DID/SAW Swamp tour – Taking a swamp tour was on my cousin’s list of definites. They offer a speedboat or a normal, not scary boat. We chose the normal boat over the speed boat (sorry, Dez!)…

    NOLA in a nutshell (part 1)

    Friday marked a week since I got home from New Orleans. I had every intention of getting this post up even before then, but life happened, as it tends to do. Anyway, here I am with a NOLA recap. I was going to break this down day by day, but then I thought against it. When I was searching for places to go, things to do, where to eat, etc. I looked for travel blogs, regular blogs of people who go places, blogs of New Orleans – anything. I couldn’t find much of what I was looking for so I’m going to provide that service for the internet.¬†you’re welcome. We…

    I’m home!

    I’m home! I’ve been home since Friday but I haven’t had the chance to update you. So, if you thought I didn’t make it back and have already spread the word to Harry about my love for him, that’s fine. He needs to know anyway. I have tons of pictures and things to fill you in on, but they aren’t going to edit themselves so I need a little time. I’ll post one of my favorites here for a quick taste. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen it. #sahhry. I’ll be back with more soon!

    finding my nola

    Raise your hand if this time next week you’ll be in New Orleans! That’s right, friends! Next week I’m trading the Big Apple for the Big Easy. Four days of voodoo, swamps and all the beignets I could shove in my mouth. I’m going with my mom, my aunt, cousin and one of her friends. We’re already signed up for a cooking class, so if you hear of a fire in New Orleans on Tuesday, it’s probably my dinner. We have lots of fun stuff planned in these 4 short days and I can’t wait to share them with you. My camera is all charged and I’ve already bought two…
