A New Orleans Wish List

I started a mental list of what we needed to do in order to move to Dallas pretty much as soon as Harold opened his envelope on Match Day - find a house, find a school, pack, update insurance, register cars, pack, open new bank accounts, get new drivers licenses, find a church, pack, etc. I think all these thoughts ran through my head before we walked out of the stadium! ;)

We still have a lot to do but are also working on a fun "New Orleans Wish List!" Just yesterday Harold sent me a text with another item to add to the list. Some will happen and some won't, but we can wish anyway, right? Here's the list - in no particular order. I hope I haven't missed something!

1. Beignets at Cafe du Monde
2. Mass at the Cathedral
3. Walking in the French Quarter/Flea Market
4. Crawfish every Friday
5. Ride the streetcar
6. Roast beef po-boy at Short Stop
7. Sunday brunch at the Royal Sonesta
8. Corks-N-Canvas night with my best girlfriends (Nola themed art)
9. Jazz Fest
10. Go to Zephyr's game
11. Order a daiquiri at a drive-thru window (can't do that anywhere else!)
12. Girls night with Emily, Claire and Aunt Mary
13. Snowballs at Plum St, Casey's, Sal's or Hansen's (so not picky!)
14. Picnic at Audubon Park
15. Afternoon at the zoo
16. Watch street performer's in front of Jackson Square
17. Check out NOMA and the Sculpture Garden
18. Ride the City Park carousel
19. Hurricane's at Pat O'Briens

(Items in red have already been accomplished and probably more than once!)
