New Orleans!

I think it's best to split this post up into two different days, there are a ton of pictures but they're mostly in order.

We spent the first day eating amazing food and walking around Bourbon street.  A friend recommended a restaurant called Boucherie. I have never tasted anything like this in my life! It was soul and southern food but with a fusion twist. The head chef and the owner are good friends with my neighbor so naturally most everything was "compliments of the chef."  I tried "boudin," which was probably the most phenomenal thing that I've ever eaten. Duck liver and pork - who would've guessed. Caitlin and Toby both ordered the brisket and I ordered mojo duck breast. HEAVEN. I could literally talk about the food the entire post.

After dinner we made our way to Bourbon, smelled just like I remembered. Like vomit and horse poo, but it's always so fun. The last time I was in New Orleans was July of last year for a bachelorette party and we were only there for one night. There's so much more to do during the day which is what I'll post photos of tomorrow. Seafood festival, blues and BBQ festival, street performers, you name it!

For now,  day one.

The most hilarious shot of our trip. Why was I standing like that? Did I have to pee?
