Dreaming of New Orleans…again!

 cafe3 (Medium)

Today I am dreaming of New Orleans…again!  Only a short three hour drive away, New Orleans makes a fantastic destination for an overnight getaway.  Yesterday I saw a commercial for Miracle on Fulton Street.  Fulton and Poydras Streets in downtown New Orleans turns into a winter wonderland from November 27 to January 3.  It snows!  In New Orleans!  There is live entertainment, falling snow, a canopy of lights, movie nights and so much more.  We visit New Orleans on a regular basis but haven’t made it over for Miracle on Fulton Street.  Hopefully I will be able to talk my husband into the quick trip over!  Some of the things I am dreaming about doing while we are there.

And of course we will make some time for several stops at the Cafe du Monde to indulge in beignets!

See what other are dreaming about over at Mother of All Trips, host of Mondays are for Dreaming.

    I dream about New Orleans a lot, too. It is nice to be within easy driving distance. Have you been to the Insect museum yet? It opened while we were away but we are anxious to check it out on our next trip home. Eat some beignets for us, please! 🙂
