New Orleans or Bust!

This song keeps playing through my head today!  My days of debauchery are over, and it's back to reality for this mama.  Which isn't necessarily a bad thing considering I ate and drank my way through the French Quarter of New Orleans. 
My fascinator and Raymond the Gator
(The Pandora charm was a cute little fleur de lis!)
So the mystery was solved . . . my annual girls' trip destination was New Orleans!  My ladies show up at 7:30 a.m. on Friday with gifts and beads and cocktails.  Yes, cocktails. 
Rumchata anyone?
I need to get the pictures sorted from our trip, and then I'll fill y'all in on the dirty details . . . and I mean that sort of literally since things are definitely dirty in New Orleans!

Getzy managed to hold it together this weekend, however, a friend of mine cracked me right the heck up last night on Facebook . . .
Kitty inserted to protect the innocent . . . shout out MJ!
In other news, I'm participating in a Fall Swap with a group of bloggers . . . how exciting!?!  
Participants are paired up with a blogger and basically make a new virtual friend!  You get to know them via their blog, other social media and email and then send them a fun little goodie box in the mail.  I'm a friendly girl so why not?

I was fortunate enough to get paired with Michelle from Did I Really Say That?  I just started stalking her blog, but she had me at the title!  She has an amazing story to tell . . . mostly notably she is a previvor of breast cancer . . . as in she had an elective mastectomy given the high probably with her family history.  What a strong woman to make such a decision?  I cannot wait to read more of her story.  Go check her out!
