Rainy Halloween in New Orleans (go #NOLA!)

So, when Steve or I have a conference or other job-related trip to take, we like to extend it on one side or the other (or both) and take advantage of at least a little price break paid for by the company. I was visiting New Orleans for a work conference and we extended the trip … which meant we landed in New Orleans on Halloween! These lovely ladies: an oak tree, Miss Russia (complete with furry boots and an AK47) and Miss Spain were happy to share their smiles, their acorns and their costumes for the photo.

The photo was taken in the Hotel Monteleone bar, which is the first hotel I stayed at with Mr Man when he took me to New Orleans the first time. We love the vieux carre drink they have there, but it is not for the timid! We didn’t stay at this hotel for our stay, we stayed at this great little place – the Q&C Hotel, or the Queen and Crescent … and I highly recommend it. It’s quirky and fun, just a short walk to the French Quarter and take a look at the cute room!

We then proceeded to eat and drink our way through NOLA – here are Steve and our beautiful girl, Elizabeth on the streets of New Orleans with the requisite drinks in hand.

We saw beautiful art:

And movie posters – I want to see this movie!

And we took ourselves to mass at St. Louis Cathedral – would you look at that ceiling!:

It poured nearly the entire day we were there – we got SO wet.

More to come soon …
