My Ragin’ Cajun Bachelorette Recap

11 Oct

I think I can speak for our group of ten to say that we had the best time in New Orleans this past weekend for my bachelorette party.  It was a great city to visit and we certainly had a jam-packed itinerary!

Our trip started very early on Friday morning, when everyone hopped on early flights to the Crescent City.  I got to experience first class for the first time (thank you Marisa) and once we landed the fun started right away.  After a much needed lunch and walk around the French Quarter, we got all dolled up for our evening.  My friends love a good theme nights and Friday night was no exception.   Since DB and I are going on a safari, we had a safari-themed evening.  All of the ladies wore some kind of animal print and I was the zookeeper.  We also decorated safari hats.

RAWR!

in the words of kristina, “everyone does this, right?”

We had an early start on Saturday morning, for our Honey Island Swamp Tour.  After a 45 minute ride, we were on the bayou feeding alligators hot dogs and marshmellows.  Not surprisingly, we had another matching outfit.

it’s getting closer!

that line you see at the bottom was our boat! how am i going to make it through a real safari with lions?

but we survived!!!

After touring the swamp, we decided to lunch at Drago’s, the spot for NOLA charbroiled oysters.  This means cheese, butter and garlic are added to a fresh oyster and broiled to perfection.  It was heavenly.  We were licking the shells.   We then left on a haunted history tour of New Orleans which was fascinating.

After a regroup at the hotel, we got into our second night uniform, little black dresses, with a twist.  Of course I had a headpiece of some sort.  

The night ended with a stop at Cafe Du Monde, the #1 thing I wanted to do/eat.  They lived up to the hype!  Mmmmm.

The third and final day consisted of brunch at Mother’s, a culinary must-see.  DB would have loved this place. We then took another walk around the French Quarter to check out the art and music we had seen on the walking tour the day before.  While there, we found the creepiest looking lady and had our tarot cards read.  When in NOLA…

Eventually it was time to say goodbye and head home.  It was the trip of a lifetime and I’m so lucky to have such amazing, thoughtful friends to plan the whole thing.  Thank you so much!!

With the bachelorette and bachelor parties done and dusted, things are really getting close.  Can you believe it?  xoxo db2be
