Courtney, I have to say that you and Ryan are sooooo precious !!! Maddie is too.

My parents live in Louisiana, I love it there. My maiden name is Beaubouef, very french cajun. My Daddy is often referred to as a Coon a**. Sometimes while talking to him he will speak English and french and have us all looking at him like he has two heads, LOL. My youngest, Lexie and I were just down there last week to help my Momma celebrate her birthday and I had to bring back some community coffee (it's all my DH drinks) and of course all the spices and sauces you can only get from down there, kwim? While we were shopping Lexie noticed a can that said turtle and she asked what it was, and my Daddy said "it's turtle soup baby" She got a funny look on her face and then said "PawPaw, I didn't know turtles ate soup, I need to get some for Speedy" ( her pet turtle ) My Daddy, being the best PawPaw a girl could have didn't want to tell her the truth so he said "okay, Baby we'll get your turtle some soup" ........ only in Louisiana could this have happened, LOL.

anyway, thought I would share that with you since you are a fellow Cajun.

looking forward to more, and hope you are having a great weekend !!
Brandi.... always dreaming of

I have never thought to take pics of the ride pics. Good thinking!

That Atlanta airport is HUGE. Good work making it to your flight on time!
Thank you! It's still "growing on me" ... Not sure if I want to keep it this dark, but not sure I'm ready for highlights again just yet--- they grow out so dang fast!

And thank you!! It's a little boy and we're so excited! As far as names go, I really like Jacob Ryan, but I'm still looking around. Any ideas?

PS; The dark hair looks awesome on you!
Well, you know I love the "Ryan" in Jacob Ryan!!!! I bet you are so excited -- Congrats!!!!

AHHH!!!! I totally understand!!!! More should be coming tomorrow!

Very true! Now I don't need to point out where we are-- -Just look for his arms flung up in the air!

(and if it ever went smoothly I don't think I would know what to do with myself) When we took the kids on the Disney cruise in Feb my kids got strep throat 3 days before we left. We had to take their medicine w/us but I wanted to pack it in the suitcases before we left due to all the travel rules with liquids in carry ons. Well I gave my kids their medicine on an empty stomach at 4am before we had to leave for the airport for our 6:30am flight. (which the medicine says NOT to do) While in the security line at the airport my daughter started vomiting all over the floor. We ended up in the bathroom and she was vomiting and had an upset stomach. My husband (the calm one) took over the situation and we got on the plane. After eating a chocolate chip muffin on the plane my daughter was back to her normal self. So lesson #1 never give a child antibotics on an empty stomach!
Oh, no, that's horrible!!!!! I hate that for you!!!! How awful! And throw up's the worst!!! Poor little thing! I hope everything turned out alright-- Strep hurts so bad

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.
Fun!!!! Thank you so much for reading and for the complement--- I'm dealing with the hair, not sure if it's my favorite, but it's "go in public okay" for now =)

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.

Hi Sam! Thanks so much for using your FIRST POST on my TR!!!! I feel so honored! Wow! I'm so glad you're here reading!

To all of you other lurkers--- come out from hiding and post!!!! It's so fun!!! Right, Sam????

Hi Amanda! Thanks so much!!!! I'm so glad you're here following along!!!! Stick around-- much more to come!

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!
Thanks so much!!!! Well, we are really trying on the house! It's hard, but it's getting there-- finally! SW scares me b/c they don't publish their fares till so late... And I'm such a planner, usually I get to anxious to wait =) Maybe I need to try and relax and try SW next time out of NO. And I seriously have never seen that much lightening either... It was scary.

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.

OMGoodness- I totally relate!!!! When I went to dancing right after I had it done, my students called me "gothic"... It hurt my feelings, but they're just kids-- they didn't mean it to be mean. And who cares anyway, right??? Some people will like it, other's won't, but you just gotta "work it" and no one will question you! I hope, at least =)

Thank you so much! He's such a great husband, and I'm so lucky to have him! I'm so glad you're a fellow LA-ian!!! Cool!!!!

Thanks --- I think he's pretty cute myself! More should be coming tomorrow!

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...
Thanks so much! That's so nice of you! I need to use clarifying shampoo-- I just bought some the other day--- The only problem is, it may have faded all it's going to... I had it done about 2.5 months ago--- what do you think? Worth a try???

The primary problem with America is stupidity. Maybe we should just take all the warning labels off and let the problem solve itself.

Hi Court! Thanks for my "moment in the spotlight!" I had fun stalking you! I told the waitress I needed to find "Courtney and RYAN" and that you were cute with long, dark hair. I was relieved to see it WAS still dark! We told her to feel free to embarass you in any way to find you! You'll be in day 5 of my TR... but you can guess what it will say, I'm sure! Can't wait to read more. Have fun tonight!
