Celebrating 30yrs old in New Orleans

Its 2012....I've been pregnant for the last 4 years....I'm turning 30......definitely time to have some fun with no kids in tow.  Where do you go when you can't afford to fly to Vegas or NYC?  New Orleans of course.  Nick and I had never gone before, so thought hey it could be fun.  My sister joined us and our good friends Mike and Jenny came along too.  We drove 6 hours to party, eat good food, site see, and enjoy some good company.

 I will be painting my front door this color one day!  The colors on the buildings were beautiful in the French Quarter.
Cemetery family plot
 This was one of my favorite places - Nick and I would love to take a tour of this cemetery next time.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button movie house
 We just so happened to look this one up and we were a block away from it in the Garden District so why not stop by.  It was for sale for $2.5 million at one time.  Nick and I would love to go on the home tour to see these beautiful homes.

At the end of our trip, even though we did not get to see Matthew McConaughey filming his movie in the Garden District - I did get to try grilled oysters (delicious), had a muffuletta, drank a Hurricane and a Grenade, ate beignets, rode on the oldest streetcar, saw some beautiful homes, and enjoyed Bourbon street.
