A Night Away

7.19.2010

Michael and I were able to sneak away for a night to New Orleans this past weekend. It was such a treat to have a night to hang out with dear friends over good food and wine! A special thanks to my mom and sister for keeping Collins while we were away.

We stayed at the Windsor Court Hotel. It was so nice and such a treat.
.

We ate dinner at Upperline and our meal was wonderful. I can't say enough about it. And not only was the food great but the restaurant is known for it's artwork by local artists that covers every inch of the interior walls. Visit the original site here and the newest website here.

We ended the night at the Carousel Bar that is in the Hotel Monteleone in the Quarter.

Saturday we spent the day shopping on Magazine Street and eating (of course). A couple of photos from the weekend.

And while we were away- Collins had a playdate in Meridian with his girlfriend, Olivia. She belongs to one of my very best friends from growing up. Michelle and I are 4 weeks apart and our two little ones are a little over 3 weeks apart!

NOLA is amazing. I was there two years ago and we actually stayed at the Hotel Monteleone. It was lovely. And the antique stores are possibly the best in the country. Glad you had fun!

Congratulations! You forget so quickly how little and precious newborns are. Hope baby and mama are doing well.
