Wanna Get Away - to Miami on Feb 7th?

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a weekend. We have the best time at the Blues and BBQ festival. We had some cold frosty beers and some cochon de lait po-boys (yes the kind they sell at Jazzfest!) and heard the best music. It was such an absolutely beautiful day. My parents came with us, and we enjoyed getting to spend time together in such a festive atmosphere.

We were able to catch up with some friends who just had a new baby, and baby Kate is adorable, as is her brother Max. Saturday night the whole family spent the evening celebrating my dear friend Beth. Her family really is our family, so it was wonderful to be together and see Beth and her new fiance John so happy. Her dad gave a sweet toast, and her aunts put together this adorable slide show of pictures or Beth and John through the years. It brought back some lovely memories.

Sunday was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! We had breakfast at this cute little place in Mid-City called Huevos. Yum - house made chorizo. Then we were off to the Superdome where we tailgated with our good friends. Who knew we'd be in for such a special treat. The Saints played the best game I have ever seen them play. The atmosphere was electric! So electric in fact that I have absolutely NO voice today. Seriously, I cannot talk without sounding like a 13 year old boy. It was all worth it. The Giants defense as well as sportscasters around the league have credited the Saints crowd with causing havoc on the Giants D. Job well done Saints fans! We were so happy for Jeremy Shockey for his outstanding performance yesterday. He was a great teammate all week never focusing attention on himself, so props to Jeremy. And all hail Drew Brees. If he isn't the epitome of an MVP, I don't know who is. Under his offensive leadership, SEVEN Saints players scored yesterday. He makes everyone who plays with him excel. He is truly a joy to watch.

So much so that we are booking tickets to Miami on Southwest this afternoon for the weekend of February 6th-8th. I feel like just writing this I am jinxing our chances of going to Miami for the Superbowl, but after what we saw yesterday, this year is looking pretty special. So why not live in the moment and take a chance on Drew Brees. After all, it's pretty fitting - three years ago he turned down an opportunity to play for the Miami Dolphins and took a chance on New Orleans to come and lead a franchise looking to rebuild itself and its city.
