A Louisiana Saturday Day & Night

I Louisiana. Love it. I love New Orleans and I love to travel. Here is about one magical day.

My best friend and I always have said that when we are about sixty we want to live in a plantation home, drink mimosas on our wrap around porch and gossip about everyone is a small Georgia town that we will be living in. Saturday’s festivities at Bloggers on Bourbon brought us to the Houmas House. We arrived their via a nice bus trip sponsored by Community Coffee. Which if you are wondering, is the best coffee (judged by Brent and myself…let me take a sip of it real quick.) Anyway – we arrive and are greeted by the lovely Shannon Lane from Traveling Mamas.  We sip on our ever tasty mimosas and I begin to envision my life living here,


Isn’t it marvelous? Well as we stand and wait just a few minutes a breath of southern air saunters up and what do you know, it’s our tour guide.


We are then brought through the most amazing home for a very detailed tour. The tour guide was phenomenal with how she told about the house, her mannerisms and more. It was such a outstanding day.

We were then treated to the most FABULOUS lunch sponsored by Global Resort Homes. And after lunch we mingled, took a group picture,


Then headed back to the house and were treated to a very tasty drink thanks to Firefly Vodka. Afterward we headed back into the French Quarter where we would enjoy the BEST dinner thanks to OpenSky and Collective Bias.  We ate here,
