New Orleans...it was so wonderful to be back. It all began for us 4 years ago in the Crescent City, and it was nice to revisit the city we fell in love in. The trip for us was a lot less about Bourbon Street, but instead a lot of antique shopping and art admiring on Royal St. We spent a lot more time ambling around, looking at the beauty of the buildings and taking (God forbid!) a carriage tour (so touristy!) We felt a little...older, and maybe a little less wild, but relaxing was what we needed. A little break from Houston, and a little culture and DELICIOUS food in the big easy.
Our favorites from this trip:
Carriage Tours at the front of Jackson Square
La Belle Creole Pralines THE BEST!
Spicy Bloody Mary at Frank's-- we taste tested a bunch for you. You're welcome.
Gallery Burguieres- The cutest artistic prints (a lot of animals, like, cute animals)
Check back next week for a post on Nola by Night...probably the best time to see New Orleans.
