Upon arriving at the Hotel Monteleone, we found the room decorated with gift bags, balloons, and Richard...
Aren't those rooms incredible? Love that place!! (More on Richard Later) We got ready for our first night out and hit the road...wearing really big heels. BAD IDEA! Trust me if you ever go to New Orleans do NOT wear heels.
First stop - "Hand Grenades" - a Big Easy must!
They were soooo good! Try em if you go there.
Then we went to eat dinner at the Gumbo Shop. We asked our waitress what her favorite shot was...to which she replied, "Well....uhhh.... an Espresso shot." ?!?!What?!?! She said that she promised God if the Saints won the Super Bowl last year then she wouldn't drink for a year.... Ok... I guess I can respect that??? Really?
After dinner we were off again in search of a hurricanes at Pat O Brien's.
Trust me I wasn't touching her at all. I was trying to show my ring and that I too was going to be a bride. Came out looking much worse!!
Can I just say it was a little humid+hot in Nola! Perfect weather for my hair which took FOREVER to curl. ;-)
Stay tuned for tomorrow...Day 2 (The End). Sorry I can't finish in one post, but I'm so exhausted with way too much to do!! Love ya'll!
