Sorry it's been so long without an update friends and family, I've been a little under the weather this week. I have a four-day weekend so maybe I'll have some good down time to recuperate.

I wanted to tell you all about last weekend; it was a little more eventful than usual. On Friday we ate at an amazing restaurant, Cafe Degas. It was so freaking good! I had roasted duck and K-man had lamb that was to die for. We got a $50 gift certificate at for 90% off. If you haven't tried, I highly recommend it. Right now they're running a promotion. Enter ENJOY at checkout and you'll get 80% off. I have eaten at many restaurants in Las Vegas (and now in New Orleans) using these certificates, they really are a good deal.

After dinner we went to see Ani Difranco at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen street. Apparently she lives here and decided to give a string of super intimate concerts. I'm glad I found out about it before they all sold-out. The venue was awesome-- Frenchmen St. is way more laid-back than the French Quarter. There were fewer than 80 people in the audience and she was celebrating her 40th birthday. Wow, that woman can rock.

This weekend we got half off tickets at to go to the Tulane homecoming game in the Superdome. I'm excited for the stadium food!

Wow, that was much longer than I had anticipated....I must be feeling chatty :)
