Driving to New Orleans

by missbabysunshine


My husband and I returned from our holiday trip in Florida on the 31st. We had few offers to party it up for the New Year’s count down, but we were too exhausted to leave the house. So, we started our new year at our home. I actually enjoyed this quiet start… it gave us time to recap on the year 2009 and to thank for such blessed year we had. Hopefully, 2010 will be even better year for all of us!

Oh, and here are some photos we took from our short trip to New Orleans from Pensacola, Florida. We drove 4hrs to New Orleans to spend a day there. Our main goal there was to have lunch at Commander’s Palace and to have the famous beignets at Café Du Monde. Yes, they are both food oriented goals… haha.  Surprisingly, the most memorable thing at Commander’s Palace was the $.25 martinis. At Café Du Monde, the coffee they served was FANTASTIC and beignets were slightly disappointing. It was not exactly what I expected. Either way, the short get-a-way was fun and we look forward to going back there to experience more of New Orleans. We stayed at Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, MS that night, which was a mid-point. Luckily, they placed us in the ocean view room and we were able to wake up to a beautiful sunrise over looking the ocean.
