The bachelorette weekend got off to somewhat of a rocky start. I woke up to a lovely phone call saying that my flight (on Thursday morning) was cancelled and I was rebooked for Friday morning at 6 am. Um, no thank you! I proceeded to get ready as I was patiently on hold with American Airlines for 2.5 hours!! Yes, you heard that right. I received no help until I drove my butt to the Raleigh airport and waited some more until a gate agent helped me. Apparently Dallas got quite a bit of snow/ice so everything coming in was cancelled. I didn’t want to wait til the morning (plus 6 am flights are the death of me) so I did the next best thing and drove myself 3 hours to Charlotte to catch an afternoon flight (which also got delayed 30 minutes). Anyways, I made it to NOLA safe & sound so let me just end this spiel by saying that this trip was an absolute blast and #katiesragincajunbach was a success!
We loved our bachelorette party pad
We all stayed in Thursday night to watch Katie open her pretty presents, drink wine, and play Cards Against Humanity. Friday was spend exploring the city, bar hopping, and going on a ghost tour. Going out on Bourbon Street was nothing short of awesome. It’s one big party in the street and there are so many fun bars and crazy people hanging off balconies. Katie got to sing on stage and ride a bull for the first time so she was definitely the life of the party. Our last stop of the night was to a little place called Bourbon Bad Boys… and… that’s all I’m gonna say about that. It was craziness!
Pretty balconies everywhere!
Saturday we got up, grabbed lunch at a little place called Butcher, and hung around Jackson Square. The weather was perfect and we got to enjoy some entertainment from breakdancers. A little tiger snooze was needed so we hung out at the house for a little while before we got ready for the 2nd night’s festivities. We went to a nice dinner at Mr. B’s Bistro and most of us got filets with truffle butter (yes, like the song… I’m obsessed!) and continued with bar hopping on Bourbon.
Don’t you just love Katie’s little friend, Richard?!
Hurricanes at Pat O’Brien’s
I think we got 4 hours of sleep on Saturday night (no help from daylight savings) but it was so worth it. I’ll definitely be back to NOLA at some point, it is such a cool city with it’s history and beautiful architecture. We had so much fun celebrating the bride and I can’t wait for the big day on May 16th!
