Weekend Travels: Meridian MS to New Orleans
This month has been filled with so many exciting trips….so many that I am WAY behind in even recapping them! I know, not a bad problem to have! 😉 Last month, we relaxed at the beaches of 30A and the weekend before we made a trip to the Big Easy to celebrate Erin’s 30th birthday. It’s hard to believe that this was my FIFTH trip to NoLa and each time there is always something new and exciting to see.
Rob had to work on Friday so I woke up and drove down to pick up Erin and her friend Valerie from the airport. We checked into the condo and headed straight to happy hour at Dickie Brennan’s. Rob got into town just in time to pick up his mom from the airport and meet us for a drink. From happy hour, we had to make a trip to Pat O’ Briens for a round of hurricanes.
Saturday morning we headed to Cafe Du Monde (because what trip doesn’t include their beignets!) and explored the city a bit. Afterwards, we headed back for a little pool time (our condo had an awesome rooftop pool overlooking Canal Street). Saturday night, we had dinner at August and then drinks at the Carousel Bar inside of Hotel Monteleone. Rob was scheduled for flights on Sunday so he had to leave late Saturday night to make it back to Meridian in time.
Sunday we had brunch at Broussard’s. The bottomless mimosas at brunch led to a bit of a Sunday Funday where we just couldn’t resist stopping at bars with live music pouring out of the open doorways! Needless to say, after three days in the Big Easy, I was in bed asleep by 7pm 😉 I slept through the night and woke up just in time for leftover birthday cake, po-boys at ___, and to take the girls to the airport.
Such a fun weekend and I’m so glad that we were able to help Erin celebrate her 30th!
