Nawlins Done Right

Friends and Lovahs, 

I'm BACK! Well, technically I've been back since Sunday night, but I sustained a battlescar in NOLA and have been lying low till today. Battlescars are usually cool, like the gash I have on my ankle from falling into a sewer in college, but noooo, I had to get a totally uncool one, PLUS I was dead sober when it happened. Basically I pulled my groin muscle reallllllll bad Sunday and couldn't really walk I'm serious. I have a really high pain threshold and this was PAINFUL. I digress. 

Mardi Gras was a success! I didn't get lost, I didn't get abducted, and I didn't get wastey-faced and make an ass of myself. HOWEVER. I did partake in some SCRUMPTIOUS eats, which I will share with you. For those of you who care, I didn't even see any boobies!! (I'm totes ok with that too btw). Now that Pardi Gras is over, I have to return to normal life...blah. BUT I graduate from my Master's three months from this past Sunday! Ah!

Oh, my homeslice over at BANANAS will DIE when I tell her that we were driving down Canal St. on Friday night with the windows down being total goons. This tricked out Escalade pulls up with this guy in shades, and a BIG mink coat with a HOOD. My friend who was driving looked over and goes "If it costs less that 20, it don't look right on me..." And low and behold, the guy flashes us a HUGE diamond and gold was JUVENILE. As in the rapper from NOLA who sings "Back that Azz Up"....yeah. Pretty flippin' amazing. Giggidy.

And now, I will share some photos from the weekend. Bon Apetit. 

I introduce you to "Eggs 9th"....two jumbo lump crab cakes, topped with two perfectly poached eggs, Hollandaise and shrimp. I also had a sweet potato pancake and the BEST Bloody Mary of my ENTIRE LIFE.

this guy was PASSED OUT COLD at "Cafe Du Monde" and his "friends" poured powdered sugar on him. So sweet. (Pun Intended)

A "cyclone" courtesy of the famous "Pat O'Brien's" I didn't drink this bc I can't drink Rum.

The "Mixed Nuts"...awesome parade.

Me with my beads. So happy.

This looks like a macaroon, but it's really CRACK. These are the most DELICIOUS things you've ever put in yo mouth. Srsly.

We went to see a group called "Galactic" MOST AMAZING jam band. EVAHHHH.

So, in short. We had a hell of a time! I'll be back with some Double You Tea Eff Wednesdays! Peace and Love and Macaroons!!! 



  1. Back it up sister! Is that also a pink feather boa around your neck?!?!? It makes me almost feel like I was right there with you! Glad you had a blast.

  2. Looks fun! I haven't been to nawlins in forever! I need some Cafe Du Monde, fried alligator, and hurricanes (the drink)! I guess I can get the latter two here but you know, not the same!

  3. Feather boa. Check. Oversized sunglasses. Check. Shit ton of beads. Check. Drink in hand. Check.


  4. I had a Spanish teacher when I lived in Mexico that we called Juvenile because dude was the Mexican Juvenile - gold grill and all. No joke.
