I’m alive! 🙂
New Orleans was SO fun. We had such an amazing time and ate so much delicious food, saw great live music, and did a lot of walking around and exploring the city! I even managed to squeeze in two workouts while I was there.. be proud (I am!). I am feeling ready for some detox from both drinking and fried food, so am very much looking forward to rejoining Weight Watchers tomorrow night.
The fun ended a little later than plan because after we packed up and checked out of the hotel yesterday, I got a call saying our flight home was canceled. They had rebooked us on a flight this morning, but instead of the direct flight with seats next to each other like the original flight, we had a 3 hour layover in Charlotte, NC and were both smushed in middle seats in a completely sold-out plane. Talk about a downgrade. We also had to buy another hotel night, and even though there are much, much worse places to get stuck than New Orleans, we were literally packed and ready to go when the call came so it kind of put a damper on the end of the trip.
Our flight out of New Orleans was at 6am this morning, so I am kind of a zombie and though I did make it to work for a few hours, I have a lot to get done before I feel settled.. including unpack, grocery shop, laundry,
buy bigger pants, etc. I promise a full recap (probably spread out over a few days to spare you!) but for now, let me leave you with a few highlights from the trip.
