A little over a month until our New Orleans trip!

We are fans of New Orleans... I find it funny people actually asked me why we were going back because  when they thought of  New Orleans they think Bourbon street and drinking... We do not drink and we love the city just the same. We are going back because it is a great city!  Our last trip was in 2009. Here are some pictures:

Port O Call burger!

Corner Grocer Muffaletta

Last hotel we stayed at The Hotel St Marie. Great location.

Our last trip we went Saturday to Tuesday., Bad move (I did not plan as well as I should have)... A lot of things were closed on Sunday and Monday. So we had to scramble to do a lot on Saturday, but we did it! :) For this trip we (this is just a Mommy and Daddy little trip) are going to the Omni, I got a pretty good deal, and I wanted to try a new place.

This year we are going Wednesday to Saturday. We want to fit in the things we missed here are some of the things we plan to do:

 Is there a pattern here? I know most of the trip revolves around food... But in New Orleans food is... Hmm I can't even explain it is just divine!

Here is more information about the food and wine festival. Check out for a review when I return.

Sounds great to me (although I've never been there).

I like returning to my favorite places too. Have a great time.
