Scenes from our Weekend | New Orleans

I apologize for being a few days late on this post; but we didn't head back from New Orleans until Monday, so I'm a tad bit behind.  I did manage to get my Halloween post up yesterday for the holiday link-up party though.  I had so much fun reading everyone's creative ideas for Halloween decor, food, and costumes.  If you missed it, you can read them here.  

Onto the weekend...
We headed to New Orleans for a weekend of fun to visit my Mom and some friends.  Brody and I drove in on Thursday and had a quiet evening with my Mom.  We had some friends stop by for cocktail hour and then called it an early night.  

I got to wear my cute new Rails Maddox plaid shirt for the drive over.  

Mom and I took the baby shopping at Saks on Friday to take advantage of the Friends and Family sale.  Our day was pretty wide open and I told her that I never get to actually go shopping in a store anymore now that I live in Pensacola.  Our shopping is extremely limited here and it's a lot easier to just order clothes online!  So while we shopped, the baby watched Mickey on the iPad and ate snacks until his little heart was content :)  

I wore this cute Giraffe Sadie top by Annie Griffin for our shopping trip.  They had their friends and family sale this weekend too.  Did anyone take advantage of it??

We had friends over for dinner on Friday night and my Mom cooked this delicious chicken piccata from Giada.  

Saturday we took Brody to the Audubon Zoo.  Please excuse my nasty hair and no make-up.  My friend, Meredith, and I went to one of my favorite workout classes that morning before heading to the zoo.  It's called Hour Blast and they only have studios in New Orleans right now.  I think it is similar to an Orange Theory workout for those of you that have those studios.  I've never been to Orange Theory, but I have just heard of it.  

Saturday night Matt and I met friends out for dinner at Marcello's.  It is fairly new and was my first time there and I loved it!! The food was awesome and they had a great wine selection.  I wish I had a cute full length picture of this outfit from the night.  I wore this cute Mara Hoffman shift dress that might be one of my new favorites! 

After dinner we headed to Tommy's Wine bar.  It's a comfortable bar with nice seating and had some good music! It was the perfect spot for a little night cap :)

On Sunday, Matt and I hit up one of our favorite restaurants, Arnaud's, for brunch.  We had our Rehearsal Dinner here so it brings back great memories and we did a little reminiscing.  

We closed out the weekend watching the Saints game and hanging at my Mom's house.  It was such a fun weekend and the weather was perfection.  

Hope everyone is having a great week! Now that I'm back on track, don't forget to link-up with Natalie and I for Thoughts for Thursday tomorrow.  You can write about anything and just grab the button below.
