NOLA Christmas

I've been a bit behind in my posting lately but I wanted to post my trip to New Orleans with my husband Justin.
It'll be our first Christmas married and I've been so excited about it because we get to start our own traditions and things that we will eventually want to start with our kids.
So I suggested we take a trip to New Orleans to find a Christmas ornament from New Orleans Glassworks
I'd been there once before and they have the most beautiful blown glass ball ornaments. We made a day of it. It only took an hour and a half to get there. We took our time around the city enjoying coffee and beignets at Cafe' Du Monde, going to Urban Outfitters and finding a lovely bookstore all while Justin smoked his pipe as we walked.
On the drive there

Love the blue skies!

Aren't these absolutely amazing??

Believe it or not this is a chandelier

Visiting Cafe Du Monde is a must when in New Orleans!

(he's pretty dashing eh? We'd just bought the hat at UO)

LOVE the way pipe tobacco smells

We found this little nook and a picturesque fountain. Didn't get a great outfit shot but the jacket and scarf are F21 and the purse is Charlotte Russe.
Found this cozy bookstore across the street from the House of Blues
We left New Orleans and came home to put up our Christmas tree and decorate! I really felt like I got into the Christmas spirit. We blasted Relient K's Christmas album and got into the mood.
the lights look like rainbows...haha

This is the ornament we took home! The start of our Christmas traditions

Hope your holidays are going great!
