'Twas the night before Christmas....

Snuggled on the couch in my flannel pajamas and favorite blanket watching one of my favorite holiday movies, Love Actually. I was lucky enough that my company let us off at noon so I took the afternoon to run presents to my friemd's house for the kids then spent the rest of the time with my parents, my sister and my sister's 2 dogs. We had our annual Christmas Eve gumbo and then went to mass. 

Now I am at home relaxing because my Dad said I looked tired and needed to rest. He means well. 

This past weekend I spent all day Saturday in New Orleans for the New Orleans Bowl. Tulane and ULL were playing. My friend Jenny is an alumnus of Tulane and her mom works there. They were nice enought to invite me. 

We started the day off at the House of Blues for the Tulane sponsored brunch. It was good food, mimosas and a jazz trio. We had a good time. 

After the House of Blues we went to see some Christmas decorations. We went by the Roosevelt, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Hotel Monteleon. 

After checking out the Christmas decorations we went to hang out at Pat O's piano bar. We enjoyed a few songs and indulged in my favorite drink, the Fuzzy Leprechaun. 

Next up we walked over to the Cathedral to light a candle then we decided to take a pedi-cab to the Hilton. Why? Well why not? At the time it seemed a good idea (after several drinks). We did give our driver a good tip. 

We took a trolley back to the Quarter. Then it was time to head to the Dome. Tulane was hosting a pre-party at Club XLII in Champions Square. It was quite nice. Food. Cash bar. Band out in Champions Square. We second lined to the Dome before the game. 

Tulane ended up losing the game but it didn't put a damper on the good time and the memories that were made. I am still a LSU Tiger through and through. There is no good time that could ever change that!!!

What a fun trip that looks like! I'm so sorry you lost your little doggie. I lost my boy in October. It's heartbreaking for sure.
