  1. Love your travel photos & descriptions! I’ve never been to New Orleans but now I really want to go. Merry Christmas to you both & Happy Trails!!


  2. Looks like so much fun! Would love to get there one day! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic new year!πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ’•

  3. My last post was about gifting memories, so this was a timely find. I went to grad school in NOLA; your photos & descriptions were a stroll down memory lane for me.

    I’m planning to reblog an update to my own “insider’s” view of Mardi Gras post before December’s over and done, so I will add a link here in the Related Content always at the bottom. Watch for a ping – you’ll probably enjoy the article too.

  5. I always enjoy your trip posts. It has been years since I visited and wold love to take my family. Would you mind sharing where you stayed? Any ghost stories associated with the hotel?

    • Hi KC, Thank you . People always tell us how much they enjoy our trip posts…(I approach them like a scrapbook. I like to go back and read about them years later too.) We stayed at the W in the French Quarter. We both had hotel points and only had to pay for one night. Sorry, not haunted. At least not that we could tell. Maybe next time we’ll stay somewhere with more “character”.

    • I was born and raised across Lake Pontchartrain, my family is still there. When we visit the city, I like the Hotel Monteleone. My sister likes the Windsor Court, but it’s too stuffy (bigger, colder) for me πŸ™‚ Sure hope you guys went to the Roosevelt Hotel to see the lobby – It is an absolute must-see at Christmas with it’s long lighted birch tree and poinsettia lined lobby. You can google photos – it was used in a scene in one of the Twilight movies with Bella walking through it… So much to do in NOLA – the WWII museum is fabulous, too.

  6. Great post! And I love that you referenced that Simpsons episode (with the musical version of Streetcar named Desire — didn’t Ned Flanders play Stanley Kowalski?). Your photos make me want to go back to NOLA. Thanks for all the tips!

  7. I don’t normally follow (or comment on) blogs, but stumbled across yours and fell in love with your house. Quickly realized how much I love yours and Jamie’s style. My hubby is from SA, TX (he misses Shiner and breakfast tacos) and we too have a furbaby named Harley Davidson!
    Promise I’m not a creeper, but just wanted to let you know you have a new fan-keep the wonderful photos and posts coming!

    • Hi Mellissa, I promise you; I creep way harder than you ever could. So glad that you found us! Harley Davidson is a doll….can you believe that we found her with that name? She absolutely had to go on the cover of my book! Anyhoo! Howdy, and welcome aboard!!!!
