Continuing my obsession with all things New Orleans, (it never really subsides but has been kicked into high gear after my trip this weekend) I had to share a dreamy little shotgun that is so adorable.

My bags are packed! I’m ready to go! It’s hard to believe that I’m heading to New Orleans to celebrate my bachelorette, see sweet friends that I haven’t seen in a long time and get excited about my wedding in exactly THREE MONTHS from tomorrow!
The weekend has already started nicely, my dress was delivered today! I haven’t opened the box yet but I’m so excited.
I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend! I’ll leave you with a little picture of the future Bridewells.

I love this! It’s from the May/June 2011 issue of Lonny and there is a whole New Orleans section (pointed out to me by the dear Tina from Sweet on Design). This makes me super excited because I’m heading down there on Friday for my bachelorette party! I cannot wait. Check out the newest issue of Lonny and Magazine Street, next time you’re in the Big Easy…
I’m feeling ill today. My allergies are on the fritz. I’m going to do my best to go back to bed. With that I leave you the most glorious food on the planet. The roast beef po-boy. Via Blackened Out a fabulous NOLA blog.
I miss it so much.

It’s practically a blizzard here. So, I decided to make a taste of New Orleans and Summer. Shrimp Remoulade. It was super-easy and turned out really well.
1.5 cup mayo
1/2 cup creole mustard
1 tbsp worchestershire
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup diced green onions
1/4 cup diced celery
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 dozen shrimp
Combine and place wet ingredients in the refrigerator overnight. Add to shrimp before serving. Serves 6.
I love, love, love this photo. It’s been a rough week, don’t we all deserve a weekend? The weather should be beautiful and even though it’s hot, it’s still Summer! I have a friend’s birthday to celebrate, dinners to go to, a house to fix up and plenty of New Orleans music to listen to as Sunday is the 5th anniversary of Katrina. It’s hard to believe! I flew out on the very last flight. The Saints were on my plane…
I hope you have a wonderful weekend with at least a little celebration.
