New Orleans-That’s What I’m Talkin’ Bout!

I just returned from my trip to New Orleans with my sweet blogger friends. I cannot tell you how much I love these girls. Last October, we had our first trip together (AND first time meeting in real life). I was actually a little nervous. I just knew someone would be ‘weird’ or even worse, they would think I was weird. Boy, was I wrong. The instant we “met”, it seemed that we’d known one another all our lives. I feel so blessed to have each and every one of them in my life.

We had a little early celebration for my birthday, with balloons and a candle for my Commander’s Palace strawberry shortcake.

This is at Yvonne La Fleur’s boutique. That’s her to the bottom far right. She is such a lovely, gracious designer, business woman, and milliner.

She’s also famous for her unique Kentucky Derby hats and perfume.

We all said it reminded us of the boutique in the movie “The Sweetest Thing”.

One of the best parts……Billy Joel jumped in our group photo! Amazing!

For some reason, random people like to jump in our photos. he he

I can’t wait to plan our next trip!!!
