I just had to do another post on our 'mother-daughter' getaway. We had such a good time. We walked our legs off! We walked everywhere. Here are a some of the pictures of the beautiful houses. I loved them all.
I love all of the balconies on the houses and the flower boxes! So beautiful.
I wanted to go inside each and every one of theses old houses.
I bet they are so pretty inside.
This one was right across form our bed and breakfast. I love the pretty color...purple.
After we walked past tons of beautiful homes, we came to the river. Can you believe that I only took one picture? :)
We walked all the way to the French Market. My first time...and I loved it. These next few pictures are of us at a little cafe called "The Magnolia Cafe". The food was delicious! I love Cajun food. Here is Christy....a little sunburned. It was hot walking and we both forgot to put on sunscreen. :(
The decor in the cafe was so shabby and rustic. I loved it. I had to take tons of pictures. The artwork on the wall was so expensive.
I think they painted on old cabinet doors.Isn't this one cute?
This one was my favorite. Its really an old screen door. They wanted 1200.00. Are they crazy?! I'm gonna make one of these for my kitchen one day. Bet I could make it a lot cheaper than that. :)
Yummy seafood gumbo. It was the best.
vintage things inside. They wouldn't allow pictures.....so I got one of the window display.
I loved this pink bicycle. It belonged to the
lady that owned the shop.
It was full of antiques and the old silver and china was so pretty.
I love all of the detail in these beautiful old houses. The arch below was incredible. The detail!
I could really live here. lol
Beautiful crystal chandelier and ceiling medallion.
Me....resting in the 'den'.
I just had to show y'all this beautiful bathroom. lol It was very tiny but oh so pretty! I loved everything about it. The mirror...
and the awesome canopy ceiling and chandelier. I was in awe.....
We went back to our place and rested a little and got dressed to go out. My daughter was takin' me out on the town. The big city of New Orleans.
She took me to a restaurant called 'Desire'. It was elegant and had lots of old charm. The tin ceilings were beautiful.
She made me feel so special the whole entire time. Afterwards, we went to Bourbon Street. My first time EVER. I was a little nervous....just us two females out at 10:00 at night on Bourbon Street.....but it was fun. lol
We went in so many cute shops. It seemed strange to me to be out shopping so late. Christy said it never closes there. Wow! This little shop was just darling. I only got one picture and the man made me put away my camera. lol Oh well....
We had a blast and on our way home the next day we even stopped at two thrift shops! The perfect end to a perfect getaway!

I haven't posted in a few weeks.....just been busy with work and dealing with loads of stress. My daughter decided to take me away for a couple of days for my Mother's Day present. We really had a wonderful time and it was so thoughtful of her. She didn't tell me where she was taking me....that was a secret until we were almost there. She took me to a Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans, La.Isn't it pretty? It is actually the guest house to 'The Terrell' Bed and Breakfast. I loved it.
