Hey SAMELIA’s WORLD!
Sorry, I know it’s been a couple of days since my last post. If this is your first time checking out my blog, Welcome!
YOURS TRULY JUST finished my New Year’s celebration. That’s right you read that correctly, my New Year starts on my birthday every year. As I see it birthday’s are a time to celebrate life. Being alive is a blessing that yours truly thinks we sometimes take for granted.
All the years I have been on this earth and all the places I have been I had never been to New Orleans. I have been to Louisiana, but never New Orleans. The year I was headed to New Orleans hurricane Katrina beat me there so clearly I had to change my plans.
So this year Yours Truly wanted to make that trip. I wanted to visit the place that is said to have great music, people who have their own language, and where you can drink “adult beverages” openly on the street. I mean, who would not want to experience this? It sounded awesome to Yours Truly.
Being a Fine Arts major, the costumes, theatrics, and drama were right up my alley. With all the live music and people dancing in the streets there was no need to go to a club. There was music and people everywhere!
The food was amazing to go along with the entertainment. If you are fortunate enough to visit New Orleans you have to try Drago’s Seafood Restaurant. They have the best charbroiled oysters for sure!
Yours Truly could not get enough of them. If you are heading to the French Quarter make sure you go to Decatur street to the World famous Café Du Monde for the yummy Beignets. Oh my goodness they just melt in your mouth.
Yours truly must have gained 10 lbs on this trip and you know how nuts I am about keeping my weight down. But, this was my “New Year’s Celebration” so I had to let go and enjoy myself. All the food was superb!
So, if you have never been to Mardi Gras it is definitely something to put on your Bucket List. The southern hospitality was impeccable. It did not matter where my friends and I went we were treated well. It also doesn’t hurt to go with someone that is familiar with the city.
Yours Truly would like to give a special shout to them. You know who you are 🙂
A great time with great people…
In actuality other than New York, it is probably one of the easiest places to have a celebration without worrying about driving.
