How to have a successful girl’s weekend in New Orleans

I love my girl friends, like a lot. We have known each other since diapers and through all life has thrown our way we have made it through the nonsense. Our friendship and love for each other is truly special. I know this. My point is we strive to make a point to see each other. To be honest I really don’t think we can go very long without seeing one another. We made a point to meet in New Orleans on our three day weekend. These two ladies flew in from Dallas, Texas to join us. IMG_9003

I picked them up from the airport and we found a happy hour until our newlywed, worker bee got off work. (Side note: Mrs. Elizabeth Piper recently tied the knot on 12.13.14 in New Orleans to her Prince, Jason.)IMG_8865

We began our weekend on Magazine Street. There’s a plethora of adorable shops, good eateries, and nice bars in the area. We even managed to crash a hat party while heading to dinner. They said free cocktails and we were in.

One thing we all like to do is eat, and we are really good at it. At every restaurant we treat it like we are a family. We call it family style. Let me explain…We each order different appetizers, drinks, main courses, desserts, and share it. It’s GLORIOUS! Our first joint was Cowbell. It is definitely bona fide.IMG_9001

After dinner we needed to do some dancing at Red Eye located in the Warehouse District and then head to some late night munchies at F&M’s. After singing Taylor Swift at the top of our lungs, we were hungry for cheese. IMG_8892

The next morning our amazing Nola tour guide took us to District Donuts. The fancy donuts and my most favorite sliders live here, but not for long. IMG_9006IMG_8999

After a few sliders, we were off to get dessert and shop.

Might I add, my friends have so much style. Look at Emily’ red lip, floral pants, and twisted hair. She’s the cutest.

Dessert finally happened.

We went to Sucre, which is a must in New Orleans. The desserts are very scrumptious!

We love each other if you can’t tell. Thank goodness we still had one more day together at this point. Mrs. Piper brought us home to get ready for night number 2. She even managed to take us to the lake front to see the sunset. We are really romantic like that.IMG_8996

Another thing. A red lip is always a must when we are together. IMG_8995We didn’t take many pictures from this night. I think we were too busy enjoying one another, but dinner was at Rue 127. Our drinks were named after presidents and the meal was perfection especially since we did it family style. Afterwards, we headed to Bourbon Street for a quick drink and crowd watching at Saints and Sinners. Sadly, Channing Tatum wasn’t there. (He owns the bar in case you are wondering what in the world I am talking about.)IMG_8902

Sunday morning always calls for brunch! The menu, food, and bottomless mimosas will grab your attention from the start. Katie’s Restaurant is top notch.

After brunch we went to the French quarter to take in the good weather, see the tourist hot spots, and relax.CD9A4798  CD9A4802 CD9A4807CD9A4810CD9A4821CD9A4824CD9A4830CD9A4832  These three are my favorite ladies and travel companions if you haven’t caught on yet.CD9A4840 CD9A4843CD9A4844 CD9A4846CD9A4847 CD9A4848 CD9A4851IMG_8911CD9A4852  CD9A4882  CD9A4854CD9A4856 CD9A4861 CD9A4863IMG_8919CD9A4868 CD9A4865We even had a little fun on the Muriel’s balcony. Emily on the far left has been married for over two years, Elizabeth just got married in December as I mentioned earlier, and I have been married since May. Mary has been in a serious relationship for almost 5 years. You might think she feels left out or hates listening to us, but it is quite the opposite. She is perfectly content with her relationship and extremely happy where her life is as well as ours. So, to be funny we took this. A lot of women can relate, but because she could care less it made it that much funnier. IMG_8993 Also, Muriel’s has drinks as good as its views.CD9A4870             IMG_8992 Before taking our Dallas gals to the airport, we couldn’t let them leave with empty bellies. So, the best cheeseburger had to happen. I introduce you to Company Burger .          FullSizeRender

Elizabeth, thank you for planning the most delicious weekend. It was everything we could want. New Orleans has never disappointed us nor have you. I can’t wait to see where we go next!
