Day two of the girls' trip. Here we go. First, let me say that I don't actually think this video will play on my blog. In fact, it is one of those things I struggled with for years, cause I LOVE videos, but could never figure out how to post them straight to the blog. Mary Allison showed me some linky way, but ha! My lack of techie skills ensured I would never do that again! So, just trust me when I say upload the Boomerang app and have fun! That's what this video was meant to be!
My old next door neighbor, Billy, has sent me a Bible verse and told me he is praying for me every. single. morning. since my mama was sick over a year ago. It started out simple. Just that little message to me. Then, I started responding to his text with a photo of whatever I was looking at at the moment that I opened the text. Usually, he reciprocates with the same. Needless to say, we have some interesting exchanges. And quite funny too! It has become a fun game! And on this lazy morning in N'Awlins, this was what I was looking at and what he received.
The girls and I got up fairly early (10ish! haha) and walked a few blocks to what might be my favorite place to eat in N.O. Along the way, I could not stop taking pics of the scenery.... I LOVE the big oak trees down there.
Look how my group just totally left me behind!! That's them walking far ahead of me! Rude.
You can walk back to the rear and watch them making everything they sell. This is right up Todd the Bod's alley!
So, uh, yeah> we just all got two and laid them on the table and had a smorgasbord buffet for everyone to sample. I wish I could remember some of the names of these donuts. They are NOT your typical donuts, for sho!
One of my pals and I stopped shortly thereafter to have "brunch". I think there is a lot of vitamin something in one of these! That's what I am going to tell myself anyway. My "pal" prefers to remain anonymous. I am just a heathen. So whatevs.
My favorite thing about being out of town is the random little shops that have just cute little knick knacks in them. And Magazine street was FULL of those.
My friends might make fun of me or leave me in the dust when walking around, but someday they are going to thank me... thank me for taking so many pictures and documenting our trips so thoroughly. Yep... they'll see! I'll tell the story of Monday on tomorrow's blog. I need to hit the hay.
Thank you to all who are commenting! Remember, Facebook is so attractive cause there is such ease of hitting a "like" button or throwing down a quick response/ comment. Blogs are not quite as conducive. Or at least, not this one. Thanks to those of you who take the time to connect. It makes it worth it for me to take the time to post 75 pics in a single blog post and tell my crazy stories!
See ya tomorrow.
