The Windsor Court Hotel was on my bucket list of places to stay in New Orleans, and I can finally check it off. I was already a huge fan of the hotel, having been named as one of Windsor Court’s 140 Characters of New Orleans last year, dining there a couple of times with my […]
Well…I won’t even begin to tell you how overdue this post is – damn life. This summer, hubby and I walked on over to The Bombay Club to visit someone we are big fans of, Cheryl Charming aka Miss Charming. And what we got…was the “Miss Charming Experience.” First off, let’s talk about the Bombay […]
It has been 3 weeks since dad came to stay with us now. I have been reading a lot about Alzheimer’s and music is mentioned just about everywhere for therapeutic uses. Dad is doing amazingly well and I have found, when he has a down moment, music can change his mood miraculously. He may not […]
Having just attended the French Quarter Festival and getting ready for Jazzfest, I figured this post was needed. Lordy….why the heck would you wear stilettos and black clothes to walk on festival grounds on a hot day in April? Sooo….here you go…would love to hear your advice in the comments as this is only my […]
This is our 5th Mardi Gras season in the New Orleans area. Along with the traditional holiday and seasonal decorations, I now have a small collection of bows and baubles for Mardi Gras. I love driving around New Orleans and/or walking through the French Quarter and seeing all the effort people put into Mardi Gras. […]
*** Hubby’s birthday was last week and for a surprise, I catered lunch of Corky’s BBQ to his office of 100. Everything was awesome and this vegetarian heard from EVERYONE that the food was absolutely out of this world! Seems hubby’s office is full of a few blabbbermouths as he knew something was up. Mainly […]
I get lots of emails from people visiting from out of town, asking what they should do while they are here. It is always tough to pin that down as everyone is so different. We have lived here for 3 years now and I still have a huge bucket list of things I have not […]
This weekend I checked one more thing off my bucket list, dining at Antoine’s Restaurant. We had 8:00 reservations for our party of 8 in the Large Annex Room located next to the Hermes Bar (we could hear the music but it was not too loud). Yours truly had an autographed picture of Delta Burke […]
Big kudos to my hubby for planning an amazing night in the French Quarter for my birthday. He took care of ALL the details and did a spectacular job. We live about 40 minutes away from New Orleans and the French Quarter is now one my favorite non-beach destinations in the world. Never have I […]
And Mama needs botox for Xmas! Damn – nothing worse!
This Time article compares the safety of the 2 locations. In fact the safety was compared back during Mardi Gras. I’d write more, but I have to run to the studio in the French Quarter by the scene of a murder of a great lady committed by a group of teens. I still love this […]
Another weekend sitting my dead-ass on the couch eating bon-bons…NOT! So here is my entire weekend in a nutshell or at least a post. Music: Friday night, I went to Ruby’s Roadhouse for a couple of hours to watch the Blackened Blues Band play (their music is on my radio show). As always, the band […]
By now you all know how in love I am with New Orleans and all it has to offer. Over the past 2 years, we’ve only spent one overnight in the French Quarter and this weekend hubby planned a second one. We stayed at the beautiful Ritz Carlton on Canal Street. They give a wonderful […]

Each time I head to New Orleans, I notice more and more “streetcar art statues” out. I LOVE seeing them – they bring warm fuzzies to you innerds. Go check out a website that documents each one and has fabulous pictures of them.
