Matt, Karl, and I decided to break up our drive home by heading to New Orleans for a night to stay with my friend Melissa . My camera was alive to take this one, single picture of our beignets from Cafe DuMond! (yes, i had to look up the spelling of both of those).
She took us around NO to see some crazy Katrina destruction (still crazy and much more so in person than in pictures) and monday night we ate some jumbalaya and drank a hurricane on bourbon... the must do tourist things while you are there. FORTUNATELY for us, when we got up to leave at 7 am the next morning karl locked our keys in the car so that was SUPER fun... only a few hour delay waiting for Popalock or whatever they are called to break in.
all in all a fabulous road trip.... i am tired, my calves are sore (still!) from the beach, my abs are sore (still!) from laughing too much and i am (still!) severely dehydrated. thank god i am off work today! must. recover. before. audra's. bachelorette. this. weekend. jenny just got in town for work (staying thru Sunday) but she is sickly so send her some GET BETTER thoughts!
