It is official … John and I are traveling to New Orleans for our 1st Anniversary/Vacation! I’m so excited that I can barley contain myself!
I really wanted to go away somewhere this year. We usually go camping or to Virginia Beach for vacation, which is all well and good, but I really wanted to go on a fun trip before we have a family (no luck yet, but not for lack of trying!) So, after playing around on travel sites, I finally settled on New Orleans.
John and I both went there in high school, with the marching band. It was fun, but structured, and we both had things we would have liked to have done but were not able to do. So going back now, older and with more time, will be a true joy. The price, also, was a winner. I booked our whole trip – airfare, hotel, activities – all for under $900!!!
We’ll be staying at the Prince Conti Hotel; it looks very posh. The resturant at the hotel calls for gentlemen to where a jacket when dining! One thing I love to do on vacation is dress up a little bit. Will we eat there … who knows? But it does look lovely.
We’ve also got vouchers for a Cemetary and Gris-Gris tour, a Bayou Swapboat tour, and a nice dinner at The Court of the Two Sisters. It was a long time ago, but I think that that was one of the places I went for lunch when on that band trip, so it will be nice to go again!
There is so much to do there, it will be hard to chose. There also looks to be at least THREE great yarn stores to visit. And hey – if I’m not pregnant by the time we go, I can always find a good Voodoo priestess to perform a ceremony for me … 🙂
OY … first WOOL in August and then this trip in September! Believe me you, I’m saving up my pennies as we speak!
