Welcome to 2010!

I can't believe the holidays have already come and gone and we are now back to our regular schedules! I can't say I really had a relaxing holiday, but it was fun nonetheless! For New Years, E and I went to New Orleans! I must say it was nothing short of crazy being there with not only all of the people celebrating New Year's but also being there with every Florida fan and Cincinnati Bearcat fan! It was crazy, but so great being an Alabama fan! Not only did we have lots of fun, but we ate some of the best food ever! It was great! Our favorite day was Saturday, we went to the New Orleans School of Cooking and learned how to make Gumbo, Jambalaya, Bread Pudding and Pralines! It was SO good! Then, we went to Oak Alley Plantation and saw the house and enjoyed a Mint Julep! I don't even know how many times we visited Cafe du Monde! We enjoyed some great music, and met some interesting people. We even went on a ghost tour and saw a little bit about the haunted side of the French Quarter. We ended the trip with a huge Jazz Brunch at the Court of Two Sisters! It was a great time! And great memories! Now, we are back to reality and looking ahead to a great 2010! Hopefully that starts with a win on Thursday when Alabama plays Texas at the BCS National Championship! Anyway, off to try to remember what it is like to be at work! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays!
Here's to a happy, healthy 2010!
