We had the most glorious Easter weekend. It started off with a road trip to Lafayette on Good Friday. After a hot drive in our old ride, we arrived at a Volkswagon dealership! Traded in the old wheels for the new family-friendly 2012 Passatt (Motor Trend Car of the Year). We needed that so bad. Now our baby can ride around in style with a spacious and car seat friendly backseat! We thoroughly enjoyed the drive home and stopped in Breaux Bridge for some killer Cajun food to celebrate.
Freret Fest was going on right by our house on Saturday, so we stopped for some live music, and booth perusing. We even came home with a few pieces of original artwork. It's actually our first purchase of some original New Orleans art, and we've been wanting some for awhile. One of the paintings is now hanging in Baby Boy's nursery. I indulged in fair food and Albin satisfied his long awaited craving of boiled crawfish. (They're now in season again.)
Albin also treated me to a movie this weekend. Titanic 3d! It took me straight back to eighth grade. I still know most the words, and we laughed at how corny it really is.. but it was a great late night flick. I won't be in movie theaters for awhile after our little man arrives, so it's nice to take advantage of the opportunity. We enjoyed our little date, except for the 100 year old man who talked at full volume in the row behind us the whole time. Thank goodness he left early.. he was really getting on our nerves.
Easter Sunday was the perfect end to the weekend. Our street was alive with children playing and we had a few boys over for a very traditional Easter Dinner. Everything turned out delicious and we really enjoyed celebrating a holiday in our house with dear friends.
My husband is sweet, thoughtful, amazing, and selfless. New Orleans is proving to be an interesting home.. and I love that we are spending the early part of our marriage exploring this place together. I'm a lucky girl these days.
I'm back at work feeling rejuvenated and truly blessed. Commuting in a set of wheels that has new car smell and a killer stereo isn't half bad either.
