Festival Season Begins

Do not dream your life, but instead live your dream.
           - Mark Twain

So, I guess this return to blogging hasn't started out too hot, but that's mainly because April is high festival season in New Orleans!

Over the last 3 weeks, the weather has gotten all spring-y, so there's lots of outdoor parties and events to attend!

Tuesday, 2 April 2013 - Bookworm Happy Hour at Aline Street Beer Garden
Friday, 12 April 2013 - First daiquiri of the season!

At the Best Chefs of Louisiana fundraiser, we gorged ourselves on gourmet food and cocktails!
Monday, 8 April 2013 - Generations Hall

At the Freret Street Festival, there was perfect weather, delicious, unhealthy food, strawberry basil margaritas, music, and hoops for everyone to enjoy! I bought my first hoop and am practicing every day, so expect hula updates in the future!
Saturday, 6 April 2013 - Freret Street Festival, Jenette Hoops

French Quarter Festival is, like, the biggest free music festival ever! After showing a group of students around, my co-worker and I cut loose for some fun!
Friday, 12 April 2013 - Woldenberg Park
Last weekend, Bryan and I also attended the penultimate New Orleans Hornets game against the LA Clippers. We lost the game, but it was really fun! Next season, the Hornets will be the Pelicans, and I look forward to attending more NBA games!
Friday, 12 April 2013 - New Orleans Arena

In between all these exciting spring events, we've been up to being our usual, hyper-social selves. Every week we have regular gatherings with friends to watch nerdy television, play music, play board games, and talk about books! Yay, spring! Can't wait to see what happens next!
