Jim and I are in the Big Easy this week. I'm here to take my CMP Exam and to attend a Conference. Jim is along for the ride.

When I checked into my room, look what I found! These beautiful flowers were delivered from my very sweet and supportive Meeting Planning team at the office. The "gang" wanted to tell me they were thinking of me and know I will do great on the exam.
I thought this was a cool feature in the sleeping room. Made by a company in the UK.

The lobby had many unusual seating areas. Felt more like a club than a typical hotel lobby.

Even though I'm playing it low-key until after my test on Saturday, Jim and I ventured out into the quarter to grab a bite to eat.

Several reccomendations led us to Deanie's.

Here is HALF an order of the small onion rings. They were HUGE and very very good.

Of course no trip to New Orleans would be complete without some oysters.
Here we are, our first night in the Big Easy.

More good times, good food and good blog posts to come! Stay tuned!


  1. Looks like fun!! Good luck on your exam!

  2. You two are too cute.
