Scenes from Our Weekend | Wedding Getaway

Matt and I had a wedding in Baton Rouge, LA this past weekend.  The wedding was on a Friday night, so we decided to make our way over on Thursday.  We drove to Biloxi, MS on Thursday morning where Matt had to work and I got to play.  It was so much fun because we used to live here.  It was a gorgeous day, so I decided to have lunch at one of my favorite spots outside.  This is a ham, brie and pepper jelly panini.  How delicious does that look??

After lunch, I headed over to the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino for a little spa time.  I had a wonderful massage and was wishing I had brought my swim suit because there were TONS of people out by the pool!

After work, we drove from MS to New Orleans and had dinner with some of our best friends that just had a baby!!! I got to meet the sweet baby and we had such a fun dinner at our very favorite uptown restaurant, Clancy's.  

Friday we drove over to Baton Rouge from New Orleans and checked into our hotel and walked to lunch at a cute restaurant called, The Little Village.  

Friday night was wedding night!  We got all fancy, put on our dancing shoes and headed to the wedding.  It was an absolutely gorgeous evening and we had so much fun enjoying the wedding.  The dance floor closed up around 11pm and we even made it late night!  We took an Uber to a local casino and gambled our money away until 3am!!

It was great to get home to our kiddos on Saturday afternoon!  It was fun to escape, but it's always so nice to be back home with them.  

We took the kids out to eat on Sunday and I actually attempted snap a photo of them!  The weekend weather was total perfection and it put me in the best mood!! 

I have a feeling it's going to be a great week!!!
