NOLA in January

So, Kathleen and I got to talking...and let me say that I am all talk and no action, Kathleen is not. On a Friday night we were talking about how we never made it out of town for our girls weekend. We decided New Orleans would be close...just three hours away. With a blessing from both Steve and Taris, Kathleen found us a hotel, and we decided to hit the road the next day. As most of you know, I am not a spontaneous girl. We had the best time. Kathleen played Blackjack at Harrah's while I tried my luck at the slots...I won $60! We visited Coyote Ugly, Bourbon Street, and of course Cafe Du Monde. I will have to get the rest of my photos from Kathleen, but until they are.

I had to upload my photos before I could begin blogging. To be honest, I couldn't remember what I had on the camera...Boy am I embarrassed!!

Anyway, enough about update.

In December, Kathleen, Jackson, and I hit the road for Atlanta for some quality time at Ikea and just a good time to get out of town. We had a great time. We left early Saturday morning and came back around 5 pm on Sunday. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

On our way...Jackson...

Lunch at The Varsity...Hot dogs...a classic of Atlanta

The streets festive!
