I had never been to New Orleans before, and I have to admit I was a teensy bit scared on the inside. What if it's smelly and gross? What if some gangster tries to to rob us? What if some drunk girl pukes on my Michael Kors heels? As much as I was confident these were all valid concerns, I was still excited to go, especially when I heard we were staying at the W Hotel... snazzy, right? So I went, and I have to say, it was amazeballs! Besides the fact that we were totally high rollers because we were staying in a super fab hotel, we also had some really good food, had a fantastic time dancing and listening to some live music, and got to pet an alligator. Yeah, for reals.
|This is our hotel lobby... it's ok if you're jealous|
|That's Luke, our swamp captain, next to our bachelorette|
|me, keepin' it real in the swamp|
|However it's occupants were much more fabulous than the ones featured in the above photo|
|Luke lured them in with marshmallows, which ended up being pretty scary later on.|

|Getting a little too close|
The rest of the vacation involved us standing in long lines for food that was so so. Here's the line outside of Mothers, a Cajun restaurant that bragged the "World's best baked ham".
|Here we are waiting in line|
Next we have the famous Cafe Du Monde. Basically it's an out door cafe that serves 2 things: beignets covered in powered sugar and coffee.
|Did I say outdoor patio? I mean crowded out door patio.|
|And here's the line for Cafe Du Monde. People freaking love this sh*t.|
So you ask, did you girls go out? Indeed we did!! New Orleans is a great place to people watch, and I had just the game for this activity. It started out as a harmless Girls Night Out game card. Just spot the events listed on the card and press down the tab. Get 5 in a row and you have a Bingo!
|Found this thing at Pier One 50% off.|
|Just some good clean fun.|
|too bad he turned out to be at least one of the people featured on the card...|
