A Day in New Orleans

My friend & I headed to New Orleans on Saturday for a mama's only day in the city. My friend is a born and raised Louisiana girl and so she knew all the fun places to go and things to see in New Orleans. 

The French Quarter is amazing. The old architecture is beautiful. We drank coffee and ate beignets at Cafe Du Monde. YUM! Lots of fun places to see, eat and shop! Street performers on every corner keeps it all very interesting. You can tour the area in a horse pulled cart or in a street car. I walked down the famous Bourbon street, just so I could say I'd done it! Wow. That street is like a whole other world…… one which I am glad I experienced without any kids in tow. I'd have spent a lot of time covering their eyes!! It was fun though 🙂

I much preferred Magazine Street area. This is where the yarn shop is and clothing boutiques and antique store after antique store after antique store…….. heaven!! I came home with two little gems. Both things I had been looking for.
