Those beignets look heavenly. I hope you also had time for a hurricane!

The balconies were my favorite thing about New Orleans. I wanted one with flowers, a ceiling fan and gas lamps.

Those beignets look terribly fattening and oh, so good!
The pics of the Jazz club reminds me of Memphis and their blues clubs. Best part of Memphis.

Ooo...did that much powdered sugar make you sneeze?
I love the way the balconies all have that one hanging bushy plant in common.

The balconies are pretty, but the knitting takes the beignet. Gorgeous colour and pretty pattern. Don't keep us in suspense too long.....

Gads how I love beignets! I'm so jealous that you get to go to NewOrleans so often! The "something special" that rocks certainly does look special! I can hardly wait for the revealing!

Love the vacation pictures! I just found your blog and I really enjoyed the pics of Orcas Island, I went to sixth grade camp there, many, many, many years ago. Camp looks like it was a great time, and lots of fun. Thanks for sharing.
