4 months down.

and a life time to go! We just hit our 4 month mark and things are going just great. I want to do a world of things this year with Kevin so I thought it best to write a list...

1. Visit LA
2. Angola Prison Rodeo
3. Get back into fighting shape
4. Visit Portland (Abby's photos look so fun!)
5. Take more photos.
6. Strawberry Festival
7. Learn to boil crawfish.
8. Think about starting a family.

We will see if putting my ideas in writing for all the world to see will help. Its definitely going to be an uphill battle. Wish us luck!

marching on to mardi gras...

What a weekend it has been. Keith and crew arrived in town on Saturday morning and we headed straight to Bourbon. Hurricanes were had by all. The quarter was alive with Saints buzz and everyone was in great spirits. From the quarter, we headed uptown to catch a parade and then right on to Superior Grill for their fajitas.

Sunday started with a big breakfast and brought about the same trip. Back to the quarter, this time for Barkus and more reveling, followed by the Superbowl.

Win or lose, the game was going to be exciting. Well, the Saints one. We dropped everything and headed to the quarter. We just wanted to be a part of history in the making. We took a bus and hitch-hiked to get there, but get there we did.

I can't even begin to describe the scene, take Mardi Gras, throw in some love and hugs, and a super bowl win, then add a dash of high-fives. Top it all off with music and dancing. That's what it was like. Complete chaos.

hurricane nola

This city is nuts right now and it feels great to be a part of all the action. The Saints are headed to the Superbowl for the first time in history and win or lose, we will be proud.

I have watched the youtube.com videos and followed the press and all of them make we well up with pride. I was a part of the rebuilding and rebirth. I was here and I rebuilt. We have come back stronger than ever and no hurricane can ever take this feeling away.

This game is going to make all the hard work well worth it. The long road to recovery is now paved in gold thanks to the boys in black. Victorious or not, thank you Saints.

super wet behind the ears.

I am new to blogging but excited to get started. Its frustrating to say the least. I hope to put what I have learned in class to work fast! Wish me luck!
