New Orleans & Texas

Makers 46 29 28 27 The Bourbon House 2224 photo 1 photo 2A few weeks ago Stephen and I traveled to Houston, Texas and on our way back we stayed in New Orleans for the night —but let’s talk about Texas for a moment. Texas is huge. I had no idea how big this state is. All my life I’ve heard that Texas is home to large spiders and intense heat, so I decided I probably wouldn’t like Texas. I didn’t see any spiders (believe me, I looked), and well it’s February so it wasn’t hot. I told Stephen that I really wanted to meet a real cowboy. I saw cowboys riding horses (which was awesome), but I don’t think I met one… however I was called m’am and I almost screamed with excitement. I love southern charm. We were only there for a few hours, but enjoyed Texas so much we want to visit again.

New Orleans is like a never ending party; we loved it. We had the chance to stay one night and for most of the next day we enjoyed the city. We ate lunch at The Bourbon House (it was delicious!) and then walked around for a bit. Visiting again is a must.

After all our adventures, it was nice to come back home. Especially to see Molly again! Somehow I’ve quickly turned into that crazy dog lady who can’t go anywhere without her dog… yeah, that’s me.

    I LOVE New Orleans! Next time you visit, I recommend eating at Commander’s Palace. It’s been there forever, the food is AMAZING and it’s an experience you don’t want to miss! It’s a little pricey, but definitely worth it. And It’s “Sunday dress” attire. Glad y’all had fun!

      Oh man, I loved Texas. Yes, everyone was so sweet! I thought North Carolina had some southern kindness, but it’s nothing like Texas.
