My mom and I woke up early for a walk around the steamy streets of New Orleans. Mornings in New Orleans are my favorite time of day because there are very few people out on the streets. We did stumble upon a few people though…some nuns heading to morning mass.

We arrived at the French Quarter and headed straight for Cafe du Monde to pick up breakfast…beignets and cafe au lait. It doesn’t get much better than that!

We arrived back at the hotel in time to get cleaned up and ready for the Ole Miss
game. Ole Miss was playing Tulane in the Super Dome and for my dad it was like Christmas morning. My dad loves football and he’s Ole Miss’ biggest fan. At the game, we cheered the Rebels to victory for a 39-0 win over Tulane.

Excited about a game day win!
We arrived at The Roosevelt
to have a celebratory drink at the Sazerac Bar
. My mom had the bars signature drink, a sazerac, while I went with a rum baybreeze. We relaxed for a bit at the bar before heading to Slidell for dinner at Matt’s parents’ house.

We ended a great evening by celebrating Matt’s early birthday. Cake, great conversation and champagne…it doesn’t get much better than this!
