Cajun Country Awaits Us

I am so spoiled. I am getting another girls getaway this weekend. This time with the ultimate girlfriend...my one and only sister! I never do this sort of thing, and now the opportunity has presented itself twice. Twice in 4 weeks. Well, I'm just not one to pass up an opportunity.

We're on our way to Cajun Country. Natchitoches. Say that 5 times fast! It actually isn't pronounced anything like it looks. It took me forever to find it on Google.

Natchitoches, Louisiana, I am so excited to meet you. I can't wait to taste your fine dining, stroll your lovely streets, shop at your fantastic boutiques, float on your river, tour a few of your 31 B & Bs, and discover whatever else it is that you have to offer.

This is the town where they filmed Steel Magnolias. What an awesome place to spend a weekend with your best friend, your confidant, your sister.

I know it may seem odd to be going out of town during Mother's Day weekend. But hey, I figure there isn't a better way to be appreciated than to leave the hubby in charge for a while. Poor thing. He has a broken toe and just learned that is parents are going to be out of pocket this weekend. Looks like he'll be flying solo. Hope this doesn't happen again!

don't feel guilty. i'm doing the same thing. my husband's exact words were "i could buy you something. or you could have the entire day off."

guess what i chose?

feels a little funny not being a mom on mother's day, but i am so excited!

have a great time!
