What better way to start a vacation than EATING?! I was treated to a small taste of home with a Fried Catfish Po’boy! It was good. Not quite NOLA but a VERY good knock off.
PhotobucketLater we went to STEEL and hung out at the bar, had a drink and watched the game and PEOPLE! lawd there was certainly some Fashion Disasters in there. SMH I needed my Fashion Police notepad. lol

  1. YAY! I’m so glad you had a good time and so glad you came!
    woooosaaaaa@ running behind lol. You know I need to be on time…EVERYWHERE LOL
    Ummmhmmm I know who it is now lol.
    LOL@ It WAS as good as it looks lol.

  2. What a great ending to a week that began so crazy! Mad at you though for teaching Adrienne how to make soap. When is she going to sleep? LOL!

  3. Looks like you all had an awesome time.

    Here’s a hint… Next time you go to Moe’s (or any big burrito place), have them cut your burrito in half. Makes leftovers a cinch 🙂

    Phase 10!!! Must be a midwest thing because I never heard of it (or Euchre) until I got out here for school. I love that game, though. And the beginner always wins whenever we play for some reason. *scratches head*
