[QUOTE=CourtneyandRyan;19470735]Do you go to NOLA for Mardi Gras? It gets kinda wild-- that's the time I actually try to stay away =) QUOTE]

I do go, every year...never miss it (well except for last year, I had to miss) I love it and always have, even when I lived down there. I stay Uptown, and parade the whole time...lol I go to the Quarter to walk around and shop and eat, but it's usually just a few times while I am there, mostly I am Uptown. That is where I lived, when I lived there and when I was a kid, we always went to the parades Uptown, it's so much more fun.

Another great entry...glad you guys finally made it and I love your hair color, it looks great on you.

Thumbs up Love the report

Hi Courtney

Great trip report. This is my very first post. As you said, I have also been a lurker for a while. We had our very first family trip this year at Mardi Gras. It was very special. I also live in Louisiana, in the southwestern part. Even at that time it was hot for a couple of our days. My hats go off to you, because I don't know if I can handle a june or july trip in that FL sun. Keep the trip report coming, because I am loving it.

What they said!! I am enjoying the TR Courtney. Love your new house, but I can't believe you got moved and got that place pulled together while trying to get ready for Disney. My house doesn't look that good two years after moving!

And I really sympathize with the flight problems. That's why we always fly SW from NO direct. We are on the south side of BR so it is almost as close to the NO airport as to the BR airport! And I hate flying through Atlanta. I don't know how you made that connection, even running! That was quite a storm though - I don't think I've EVER seen that much lightning in a continuous storm.

Glad your first day ended well, and hope you were able to get some sleep!

Hey Courtney! OMG, we have so much in common. I live in Louisiana (Alexandria), and bleed purple and gold, also! I can't wait to get my season tickets next month. I also went to a stylist and asked for chocolate brown hair and got black instead. I teach 4th grade. The kids didn't learn anything for a week b/c all they could concentrate on was my hair change. Friday when they left I was Jessica Simpson blonde, and Monday I was Elvira black! Anyway, love your report. We are leaving in 23 days, so I'm am reading trips reports to pass the time. Keep up the good work.

Courtney- I'm loving your report and you are one good-lookin' couple! Your house is just beautiful and it seems it was meant to be despite the stress of waiting. As far as your hair goes, the dark is striking against your complexion. When you go from light to dark it WILL fade but you can always use a good clarifying shampoo ( maybe Paul Mitchell #3) to speed that up. Or you can always have a couple of highlights thrown in to break up the darkness. I bet you can guess what I do for work...
