N'awlins getaway

Well, not exactly the babymoon I would envision for myself, but we went down to New Orleans for 2 nights.  One night for ourselves and the next night was a pre-wedding party for my cousin who is getting married in Georgia in a month (we won't be able to go to the wedding).   New Orleans is 70-80% Catholic, so St. Patrick's day is a big deal!   We got out of there yesterday before the parades began, but there were so many people downtown.
Thursday night, we had wonderful meal at a romantic little French restaurant called Lilette's.  Here is a picture of my appetizer!  Yes, that is ice  - got to love a waiter with a sense of humor!



We were going to go to the aquarium on Friday morning, but the line was too long and there were too many little kids everywhere (I know, soon I will be one of these exhausted stroller moms), so we ended up going walking around Audubon Park and Tulane.  It was 85 degrees!  I am so thankful I will not be pregnant all summer long.





This Thursday is our 28 week OB appt and we'll have an ultrasound.  Yay!  We are also going to go to lunch with a doula to see if it's a good match.  I'll post an update after Thursday.  Have a good week everybody!

  1. Sounds like fun! Cannot believe how petite your belly is still. Jealous of the warm weather, what's that?

  8. Glad you were able to get away. Enjoy it now because travelling with a baby on the outside adds new challenges.
