Just a quick update before I head to Cincinnati tomorrow for the holidays. Looking forward to spending time with my brother, nieces, their husbands and kids.... 4 of 'em under the age of 5. Dom will be driving up next week.... he wants to have a quick escape route (car) in case the kids get too wild! LOL
Meanwhile, friends from Louisiana are going to move in for a couple weeks to take care of my kitties and have Christmas in the country. Good deal!
We headed to PCB on Saturday. Did a little shopping at Pier Park http://www.simon.com/Mall/?id=1204
Then enjoyed lunch at Tootsie's.
Had a fun visit with our favorite bartender, Donn. Also got to finally meet his wife Linda... lovely gal. Donn turned me onto my new favorite... Godiva chocolate/raspberry Vodka. OH MY GAWD. What a fun martini! And a heck of alot less calories than what I used to make.... Vodka, Godiva White Chocolate and Chambord.
Sunday was non-stop fun. Walked over to our sports bar, "Benchwarmer's" and snagged a great seat for our Saints game. Ate some hot wings, drank some draft beer and had fun with 4 other New Orleans fans. Who Dat, baby!
Stopped at our joint on the way home for a martini.... DONN- you've created a monster!!!!
Basically just hung around the condo all day on Monday. Walked across the street to visit himself... He loaded up Dom with a bunch of neat stuff for our bar, and packed up a set of 6 martini glasses for the condo. At that point, I felt obligated to have a martini. Hee Hee!
Came home on Tuesday morning.... did some packing, some running around, and now ready to head North.
Wishing all of you a WONDERFUL Christmas!
