Birthday Trip: Lotsa Snapshots from NOLA

While scrolling through my phone pictures, I realized I collected a great deal more memories than I first thought from our trip to Louisiana, so I’m going to snapshot highlights from our trip for you ❤ Summaries, ya know. Should I use bullet points…?

Our WWII museum experience. You MUST go if you are in New Orleans. It’s really beautiful and has a very comprehensive explanation of the events that took place during this time.

After lunch, we played a few games of cards, and packed our things to head to the airport. It was a WHIRLWIND of a vacation – so much FUN packed into four days. Thank you, love, for a once-in-a-lifetime trip 🙂 Cheers to many more!

Also, last night, we went to a friend’s house for dinner (shout out Hannahhhh! 😉 ) and she cooked us some DA-LISH-US pizzas. From scratch I might add.

And here are some shots from my workouts Sunday through today.

Sunday – 3 mile run with Patrick in Chicago.
Monday – Upper body workout, abs, and yoga.
This morning – 6 mile run. Which I needed after all that pizza 😉

Have a wonderful day,

Peace, xoxo.
