Vacation Time!

On Thursday, my mom and I are headed to Louisiana for a week! I have family that lives in DeRidder and Baton Rouge, so we are headed to there to visit them. I think it's been 15+ years since I've been down there (they've been up here several times since then). Between school and work, it's just never worked out for me to be able to go.  It's also been 10 years since I've flown, so I am a little nervous about that. But I can't wait to get out of cold temps and snow, see family, and relax a little.

Since we will only be about an hour from New Orleans, we are also going to Mardi Gras while we are there! I have wanted to go to Mardi Gras for years, and the timing worked this year so we get to go! So, if you have any tips of places to go, things to see, food to eat, etc., let me know! I can't wait to share my experience when I get back. Make sure you follow along in Instagram to get real-time updates :)
