I couldn’t resist purchasing this OPI nail polish. It is the ultimate Louisiana country color.

Earlier this month we traveled all the way to South Beach to cheer the Irish on in the BCS National Championship.
This post was just too painful to upload at the time. However, now that a month has passed, the wounds have healed. Kind of.
Here are some photos of the weekend:

Better luck next year?
A few Saturdays back, Gidget and I drove 90 minutes south on LA Rt 1 to the next cluster of civilization within driving distance, and visited Natchitoches, Louisiana. The scenic route consisted of about 45+ different churches (one that stands out in my mind is the “Cowboy Church”), and endless farmland.
Historic Natchitoches is quaint and I’m glad I checked it off my of “Louisiana Bucket List.” Apparently, it’s the oldest remaining settlement in the Louisiana Purchase Territory, and it was the film site for “Steel Magnolias.”
Perhaps on the next visit, I’ll be brave enough to try a meat pie (I’m still unsure as to what that really entails).
Happy New Year!
It was a year filled with a tremendous amount of love, and it truly made us appreciate the unwavering support we continually receive from our families and friends (both near and far).
It seems, though, that the year continually picked up momentum, and it reached such a rapid pace that it swept us right through the holiday season without any blog posts to prove it.
A new year’s resolution for 2013? Slow down. And, update the blog at least 2 times each week. Starting right now. Promise! 🙂
