My Birthday In New Orleans

So for my birthday, Bubs planned a quick trip to New Orleans. This was our first time to go out of town without peeblepants. We left him with momma, and I will do another post on that all together.
Our first night we were there we had so much fun! I had forgotten how much I loved New Orleans. I had also forgotten how much Bourbon St. smells! HA

We stayed at the Bourbon Orleans, which is a boutique hotel in the quarter. It was very nice and the bed was super comfortable. SO comfortable in fact that I woke up to pump and eat breakfast the next day then went back to bed and slept till almost 2pm. WOAH! It felt fantastic to sleep without having to wake up at night and then sleep as long as I wanted the next day.
The only bad thing about the hotel was it had a strange lay out and we had to walk 4 miles through this curvy corridor to get to our room each time.
Nice fluffy bed, black out curtains, and the bathroom was beautiful with lots of marble.
Then we went to Razoos and watched this awesome couple dancing and texted my mom a lot to see how the boy was doing. We went her this picture of us all sad with no baby!

From there we went to meet up with some friends Linzy & Adam who were also in town for Jazzfest! 
and then we all went to Felix's Oyster House and ate a bajillion oysters.

and then after we could never find a good place to chill and talk without being absolutely BEAT DOWN by the shot girls, we ended up at Harrahs and I found my beloved Fish Slots game from my Vegas birthday 2 years ago and it was So MUCH fun!! We actually left the casino with a few extra hundred instead of minus money, which is what I expected. I look at it as entertainment and not a place to make money.

All in all it was a  fantastic birthday with some fantastic people!
