NOLA weekend

Did I mention that my best pal is flying me to New Orleans this weekend? It's true- it's Mary Lou's birthday & she so kindly bought me a plane ticket so I can see her turn 25 and pregnant. Wait, I won't see her turn pregnant... just be pregnant. Regardless, I am beyond excited!

Since it's about 49 degrees here i'm definitely ready for all the humidity and heat that I can stand! Not to mention, heavily spiced food, Nawlins accents, succulent crawfish, streetcars, and, Praise the Lord, sweet tea!!!!

Adam will be holding down the fort with the Pow-wow pup. I think he's going to eat Smith sausages with a side of beef for supper and wings for dessert every night while I'm gone.

Just so you know...Jeff and I are now faithful readers of your blog. And I am glad to hear that other husbands eat interesting meals when left alone for extended periods. My husband prefers chips and pop. Also, he likes to order pizza and eat that all week long. Let's face it...they need us!!

I wish I was having a Nola weekend....=( I'm sure you know what Nola I speak of, as I spoke a lot of her last night at dinner.

Hope you bring me back a t-shirt!
