Lost It

When reading and watching movies become a chore instead of enjoyment I believe it's time to quit blogging.... at least for awhile. Maybe once I stop feeling guilty about not posting once I read or watch something. I'll miss all the bloggers and I'll probably pop by once in awhile to see what's going on but it's time for me to find the joy I used to have about blogging again.

Internet Problems

I disappeared on you guys again but I've been having internet issues so I can only get on when it's working. We're supposed to be replacing it soon with cable internet. Miss you guys!

Late Fia Friday and a Question

After a Bath
Oops! I missed Fia Friday! I wasn't online yesterday though and Fia's been a brat lately so I've been running around after her making sure she's not chewing up any more of my favorite shoes.
Closest the two have ever been (without Fia getting smacked)
Do you do Netflix? My husband recently set it up for me and I'm addicted which is very strange since I never watch actual TV. I'm getting caught up now though! I actually watched the first episode of 21 Jump Street last night with Johnny Depp and I wasn't crazy about it but I did like some of it. The show must be good if it lasted as long as it did. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me to watch? Movies too!

My New Orleans Trip

Hello all! I've been completely out of it lately or else I would have updated about Monday's trip sooner. Paige, Kat, and I all went to New Orleans to pick up Kat's passport since she's leaving for Italy this Friday and while we were down there took in a few sights.

Usually whenever I head that way, we hang out in the French Quarter but that day we went to the Garden District/ Magazine Street. I loved to see all the Mardi Gras decorations! We at lunch at La Madeliene which wasn't half bad (I had the Chicken Parisien which is a sandwich of marinated chicken breast, bacon, melted cheddar, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato on a sourdough roll and a lemon mini tart from their bakery) but I've definietly had better.

After lunch we headed over to Magazine Street (because I've never been) which is just a bunch of cute little boutiques and shops. I finally got to try gelato at Sucre which was super yummy! I like it SO much better than ice cream (the difference between the two is gelato has less buttercream and sugar). We also looked around all the little clothing shops and stuff (boy is that stuff expensive!) and then headed over to Whole Foods. I seriously wish that there was one closer to home and that I was rich enough to afford shopping there all the time since that was just neat!

After we left Whole Foods it was getting kind of late so we headed home and though I had a blister or two from those flip-flops, I did have fun! So, if you've been to New Orleans, what are your favorite stores and resturaunts? I'm a big dessert fan so I'm especially eager to hear recommendations in that quarter as well.

NOTE: My camera has grown legs and walked off again so no pics for now :(

Hey sorry guys, no Monday Musing today. I spent all day in the Garden District/ Magazine Street of New Orleans with some friends and I'm exhausted and have blisters. I'm going to bed! Night!!!
