Just a Taste

Here's just a simple 10 second taste of NOLA in a nutshell. Notice the narrow streets, bright colored buildings, dirty pavement, random guys playing loud music, and oh yeah... some guy in a wheel chair...

There really are some beautiful sites and interesting parts to this city... guess yall just have to come and check it our yourselves!

August Outing

Over the summer I got to thinking about how there are soooo many amazing restaurants in NOLA and how I'd love to try them all! Unfortunately living solely on a teacher budget and cutting calories doesn't always allow us much room to splurge.

Chris and I have decided that once a month we want to go out and do something touristy. With the quarter just a stones throw away, we really don't go and enjoy it as much as we really should.

After getting some recommendations from my teacher friends, we tried out Frenchman street and ate at Adolfo's for our month of August outing. At first I wasn't so sure because we had to go up some pretty weird stairs and the place was literally the same size as my living room, but it was well worth it!

I ordered a crab and crawfish stuffed cannoli (I thought cannoli was just a dessert) and it was AMAZING! As you can tell, Chris was already havin' at it before I could snap a pic. I'll take Creole anything, much less Creole Italian food any day of the week! Also the prices were just a little bit lower than the average NOLA food that we've experienced, which gave it even more bonus points for us! 

We already have our September outing planned for a night out at a Jazz cafe, which I am super stoked about! Never in a million years would this country gal think I would be this excited about listening to some jazz music, but I am pumped!

Well Lookie Here

Why yes... that's me! (minus eye makeup. This picture was taken before we left for church on Sunday pretty early in the morning.) A couple of weeks ago I called my mama up to tell her that she no longer had a blond haired child. Her response, "Send me a picture right now young lady." We'll here's ya picture, just about two weeks late:)

I've ventured into the brunette gang a couple of times before, but I am loving it right now. I think what made it better was that I transitioned by just getting lowlights a couple of times before I went for the full coverage brown.

I'm loving that I don't have any roots and my hair feels so much healthier. I do miss my blond, I just think I look better as a blond and that the brown makes me look soooo pale, but for now I'm loving the change!

Just to Make You Laugh

This is the time of year that every teacher, school employee, janitor, computer tech guy, and librarian dreads and hates....

on the other hand if you are a daycare worker, water park worker, lawn mover, lifeguard, maybe a pool guy, or a full time mom, this is the time of year you look forward to....

either way here is a  super funny video that Chris and I have been loving here recently:)

right now I don't have anyone named Jennifer in my circle of friends, but if I did, she would totally be a party pooper:) she do it so peoples know...... hahah. Maybe a little inappropriate, but this video is the bomb diggity!
