Laissez Les Bon Temps Roule

Translation: "Let the good times roll!"... or so I learned this weekend while in New Orleans!

On Friday evening, Mase and I flew to New Orleans, checked into our hotel and then immediately headed to Bourbon Street to meet up with some friends who were in town for the wedding. Unfortunately, it was raining cats and dogs and I was caught sans umbrella wearing a silk dress. Nice. Oh well, if anything it just added to the fun, because after awhile no one cared how soaked we got as we wandered from bar to bar!
After testing out the night life on Bourbon, we gathered the troups and headed to the legendary Pat O'Brien's to meet up with the bride and groom (Angie & Brady) and the rest of the wedding party. Hurricanes for all! Very fitting of the weather, but eww I really hate Hurricanes... they taste like watered down kool-aid, in my opinion. Here are Mason and Cameron with Brady at Pat O's: After we had all had our fill of Hurricane's, it was time to upgrade to.... HAND GRENADES!!! :)

These may or may not have had a little everything to do with my murderous hangover on Saturday morning. Ugh... my body is getting too old for Bourbon Street....sad. So once we finally dragged ourselves out of bed, we walked to a restaurant called The Court of Two Sisters and had a very yummy brunch, complete with a jazz band performance....very authentic New Orleans! I would def recommend to anyone traveling to NOLA. After lunch, we walked around Bourbon for a little while before heading back to the hotel to nap/get ready. Later that evening, we went to celebrate Angie & Brady at their wedding ceremony held at a beautiful Catholic church in New Orleans. Then afterwards, walked on over to their reception, where we continued the party! Here we are with the beautiful bride and groom (Angie & Brady both went to college with us. Brady was also Mason's pledge brother.):After the reception was over, we followed the bride and groom out of the ballroom and then down the streets of New Orleans in a traditional wedding march! We had a fabulous time visiting the City of Sin of the South this weekend and wish Angie & Brady a lifetime of happiness! Maybe next time I'll pass on the hand grenades though.... Nah! You only live once, "laissez les bon temps roule"! ;)
