Look out NOLA - here we come!
Wednesday, August 03, 2011
Massively excited that DH and I finally settled on a destination for our weekend away! First weekend in November we are off to New Orleans. It will just be a long weekend, Thursday evening through Sunday morning, but since neither of us has even been, we are looking forward to it.
Plus, here's a silly little secret. We keep track of all the states we've um...yeah..you know! So now we get to check off Louisiana. Last year we got to check off two - Arizona and Nevada. Ok, so it's goofy, but we get a kick out of it! Maybe we'll eventually get all 50!
Lots of travel yet this year. Outer Banks in Sept, mountains of NC in October, NOLA in Nov and then Charlotte, NC in December for a pre-holiday celebration the week before Christmas.
Lots of travel also means staying on my game with diet and exercise. However, if you think I'm not going to eat lots of yummy stuff in NOLA, well, you'd be wrong! (Beignets anyone?!!) The hotel will have a gym so there will be at least 30 min cardio sessions while I'm there and I know we'll be doing a lot of walking. There may be damage control to do when I get back, but that's ok!
3 months from today, we'll be there. Woo-hoo!!!
