NOLA - Part 4 (final recap)

So, this is my final recap post from New Orleans. This recap is from game day, which was also my 27th birthday :)

 (These are links. Not sure why they won't turn blue..)

It was a really nice day. It was probably the warmest day as the previous few were pretty frigid. We took a carriage ride through the French Quarter. We had a good tour guide who told us lots of knowledgeable info, like which house was Brad & Angelina's.

While we were riding, Brent snapped some pics....


While I was using the ladies room, Brent held a little photoshoot for Micah & Spencer :)

Remember when I said NOLA was a sea of red? Yep....

So, the silver guy was sitting around everywhere. It did take us a day or so to realize he was fake. People would just stare at him....

We rested up before going to the game and then took a few pics before.. 

The game didn't go quite as we would have hoped, but we did have good seats in the club section. It was a suspenseful game, to say the least... 

I really should have taken more pics of Brent jumping and screaming.
We didn't do much after the game, but overall it was a fun day & birthday. I didn't snap any food pics for some reason, but I believe the places we ate were the Gumbo Shop & Coop's.

On the last day, we had most of the day to mess around before leaving for the airport. We ate at Cafe Pontalba. The menu looked great. I ordered crab cakes. Well turned out, they had mushrooms in them. I have mushroom allergy so, that didn't end all too well. I think mushrooms should be included on the list of ingredients, especially when other ingredients were. We made stops by The New Orleans School of cooking and a little cupcake shop. I THINK it was called The Kupcake Factory. I didn't get a cupcake, but I had to try the vanilla bean gelato.


Such a fun trip! I'd definitely like to go back one day!

  11. Hi Megan,

    I found your blog through a girlfriend of mine and I have been reading for a few months. I wanted to wait until I had a blog of my own before I commented on yours (my blog is haleesays.blogspot.com.) You are so strong to share Cohen's story and I admire that! I have really enjoyed your NOLA posts - I went there for the first time this summer and loved it. Your pictures have given me great memory flashbacks!

    I just wanted to finally say hello and that I enjoy reading your blog!

  12. Megan, I check in on your blog all the time. How did I not know you were an Arkansas girl? A little jealous that you got to go to the big game. I know it was a blast. If only we could have pulled off the win!
