30 in NOLA

If you follow me on Instagram you know we spent my 30th birthday in New Orleans and it was just the best! This was our first family vacation that wasn’t to visit family and I am so please with how it went. My husband and I went to New Orleans when we were dating (true story, it was a disaster and we almost broke up!) and I have been wanting a do over ever since so Joe planned this little surprise trip a while back!


For the long weekend, we took a quick drive down to Birmingham and had a great time!

Since Joe also had off on Friday, we drove down Thursday evening and stayed at The Hotel Highland in the Five Points area of downtown Birmingham. I always like staying downtown when I visit a city, even if that means paying extra. I like to be able to walk out the front door and have things for us to do. And The Highland definitely fit the bill!

Daycation in Nashville

This morning my husband surprised us with a quick road trip up to Nashville! I didn’t even know where we were going until we hit the road at 7 this morning. It was such a perfect trip and just what the family needed!

We started out by going to TN flea market which is the largest in the country! Didn’t really find much but you really need to dig for the good stuff and that’s hard to do with two littles tagging along.
