New Orleans so far

We're having a great time so far in New Orleans.  We got in yesterday morning and went and explored.  Of course had a hurricane at Pat O'Briens then ran around the Bourbon Street area.  It was chaos haha!

We had a nice dinner at Arnaud's last night that Allstate treated us too.  We had cocktail hour on a private balcony overlooking Bourbon Street.


We're staying at The Roosevelt which is a Waldorf Astoria - yall it's fabulous and has lots of luxuries!  I just pulled out the hair dryer to use and it's a T3, my favorite and the one I use at home.  Can't beat the Ferragamo bath products either!

While we were in the lobby this morning Dennis Haysbert walked by.  He's the guy you see in all of the Allstate commercials and Kevin and I had just talked about him.  I saw a guy walking towards us and I just randomly said, "what if that's him" to Kevin.  Kevin said, "IT IS!"  Anyway we kindly asked him if we could take a picture.  SUPER nice guy.  We're maybe going to frame it and post it in Kevin's office.  Pretty cool!

We've walked lots streets of New Orleans and of course had a stop at Cafe du Monde.  The Alabama boys were loading up from the Marriott and heading somewhere so we got to see all that commotion this afternoon.
We're getting ready for another nice dinner we've been invited to tonight then tomorrow we have a breakfast and start tailgating for the game! 

Hope you guys have had a good weekend and start to the week!
