Off We Go

MS Welcomes You NO French Quarter

Off we go on our yearly family vacation and man, am I ready. We leave first thing tomorrow morning. This year we are doing a Mississippi/Louisiana tour. The Mississippi sign says, “It’s like coming home”. Well for my husband and I, it truly is like coming home. We both grew up on the Mississippi gulf coast. We are going to spend half our time in Mississippi visiting my grandmother and half the time in New Orleans. I grew up an hour from New Orleans and spent a lot of time there as a child. My grandmother, dad and his entire family are all from south Louisiana. It is my heritage and I want my children to get a glimpse of it.

The bottom line is that this trip will be a trip of eating. Between my Cajun grandmother and the city of New Orleans, I’m guaranteed to gain at least 5 pounds within the next week.
