So, I’m back.
And I have TONS to talk about.
Starting with Traveling Clothes.
What….don’t you always dress Jerseytastic for a long drive? You mean to tell me that normal people just wear sweatpants and a T shirt? Oh….Hmmm….
K..if you are reading this…apparently we were WAY overdressed for sitting in a car. But, it was fun, wasn’t it? Traveling Clothes should be totally mandatory. It really livens things up.
Also….New Orleans is a completely awesome place to be.
I mean, any town that will accessorize a tree gets an A+++ in my book.
And apparently when people get married in New Orleans, they go out on a parade. A parade involving men on stilts.
Dear Husband: Pay close attention to what I’m about to say….
Another thing that happens in New Orleans: Bloggers on vacation buy stuff for a giveaway.
Cool bloggers do, anyways.
Honest to goodness Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix. Fried dough…powdered sugar…you want some.
Pure Praline extract. Cute glass bottle/endless recipe possibilities.
And last of all…..
These really cute oversized recipe postcards. Includes recipes for Creamy Creole Pralines, Bananas Foster, and Sweet Potato Pecan Pie. Frame them and hang them in your kitchen….stuff them in your cookbook and use them until they are grease stained and splattered…write a sweet note and send to a friend (uh…they are postcards, after all). Do whatevah you want, I’m not judging.
Unless you just look at them and then throw them away. Or let your child draw on them with cheap crayons. In that case, I’m judging you big time.
Wanna win this stuff? Leave a comment telling me your favorite vacation food. Is it a fancy restaurant you went to? The beef jerky you ate on the drive? Have you never been on vacation but know what you’d eat if you were?
I wanna hear about it!!!
You must be a follower to enter…I only give free stuff to people who are willing to publicly declare their love for me. That’s how it works.
Comments will be closed tomorrow (Tues 6/8) at noon. I will draw Tuesday evening using random.org and post the winner sometime following.
If you don’t win…don’t despair. The fam and I are headed to California on Friday for a good old fashioned family trip. Expect lots of Tweeting, celebrity stalking, and another great giveaway when I return!!
Thanks to my awesome friends K and LA for a great time in New Orleans!!
