Mom and Dad visit New Orleans

Ok, so I know I am not good about updating my blog, but here's my excuse.... By the time that I look at everyone else's' blogs, I don't have time for mine. Not buyin it? Ok, I will just have to work on updating it more often! It has been really fun getting in touch with some old friends though! I haven't been the best at keeping in touch with friends from high school so this definitely helps!

I am still working on our condo and will download some pics of it later. In the mean time I will tell you about what I have been up to. Mark and I had our birthdays and it was so fun! Mark surprised me with a LCD TV! That was our joint gift to each other! He also bought me a dress form so that I could use to sew some clothes I have designed. It has been so much fun! If you are into fashion design, you have to have a dress form. I got mark a very attractive outfit!

My parents were in town for my birthday and we had so much fun. If you ever want to come visit I will have you know that I am an excellent tour guide! We went to Gulf Shores one day, and while we were there we went on a dolphin cruise (Liz you would have loved it!) and shopping. On another day we went to several of the plantation homes! It was so cool to see such beautiful mansions! We also went on a dinner cruise on the Mississippi River. They served dinner and had a live Jazz band. We went shopping in the French Quarter and walked down Bourbon street, toured the Audubon Zoo, toured Katrina sites, went on a swamp tour on an airboat, toured the Garden District, and went to several amazing restaurants! So Fun! We miss you already mom and dad!
