New Orleans

Our first trip of 2012 was for work and leisure. The international stroke conference was from Wednesday-Friday in which two of the studies I work on were being presented.

During this time, my baby bump grew even more! I had not told work before so it was hard to be around everyone 9 hours a day and what made matters worse was our stroke party in which it was free drinks all night long! I managed to avoid the situation pretty well though one co-worker suspected my secret.

A few places we went:

-Cafe Du Monde-- place to go for biegnets, they are open 24hours. We would get biegnets and sit on the stairs in front of Jackson Square and listen to the street music.
They must go through tons of powdered sugar a year.

The Ruby Slipper had a great atmosphere and brunch. This was the first time I've ever received a text message telling me we were to be seated next.

Eggs Blackstone...words can't describe how delicious it was

Crescent City Brewhouse
(Known for seafood cheesecake) We did NOT get that though!


Celebrity sightings:
Steve Zahn buying groceries.

While on Bourbon St, we saw the filming of "Now You See Me" in which we saw Jesse Eisenberg, and Mark Ruffalo.

This weekend kicked off the first parade of Mardis Gras with the "Krewe du Vieux" parade (Crimes against Nature). We had a balcony view of the parade at The Original French Market. The floats were incredibly funny, most not really appropriate to post.

We find out baby Roper's gender Wednesday the 15th (Cade's Birthday!!)
