I spent the last four days in good ol' Louisiana!

I have so many pictures and stories to tell! But I decided it would be better to break it all up rather than bombard you with an endless stream of photos!

So be sure to keep coming back throughout the week! I'll have a bunch of posts for you!

My sister's friend Akilah won a sweepstakes to Baton Rouge for the weekend. This included air-fair, hotels and most importantly, tickets to the Bayou Country Music Fest! (More on that later.) She invited Alyson, her friend Kisha and obviously, me! I was pretty stoked!

The trip started out with two different planes. I hate planes. Flying is not fun.

The actually up in the air part isn't so bad. It's the getting up there and getting down from there that freaks me out.

And I had to do it twice in one day.


So, after a whole lot of flying, we were all in desperate need of a pick me up when we landed in Baton Rouge.

We hopped in our rental car and drove to New Orleans for some of the best ice cream ever from the Creole Creamery!

One problem. The shop closed at 11. It was 10 and we were just over an hour away from New Orleans.

I feared for my life on that drive.

But we pulled in with four minutes to spare.

And can I just tell you... That Cookie Monster ice cream was amazing! 

I'd fly on two planes and take a death cab just to have some more of that ice cream.

Yup. I would.

More stories to come soon!

I also dislike the going up/coming down feeling on airplanes. On my last trip to CO the gentleman sitting next to me, who apparently flies frequently said it was the roughest landing he had ever experienced. Yeah...thanks for that.

Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures and that is the CUTEST ice cream shop!

I feel that way about ice cream too. There is a place in Oakland called Fenton's, and I would do anything for their Black and Tan Sundae. I mean ANYTHING!

Hey Katie can ride in my deathcab anytime. LOL! It is the best ice cream!! Every time I am in or near New Orleans I go there and I always take someone new with me. Their motto: Eat Ice Cream, Be happy.

That's so awesome that you basically got a free trip! I've never heard of that ice cream place but I LOVE me some New Orleans ;)

I'm excited to hear all about your trip. I'll have to keep that ice cream shop in mind if I'm ever in that neck of the woods. I love ice cream and that Cookie Monster looks yummy!
