  • Summertime

    This summer has flown by! I had four weeks off in June, but one of those weeks, I was in Louisville for the National TSA Conference, which was my first time at a conference without a chapter. It was very odd. I felt like I was missing something the entire time! I stayed at the…

  • A Snowy Sunday Part II

    A Snowy Sunday Part II

    I had meant to post this earlier in the week, but the time got away from me. Last weekend we were in Atlanta and on Sunday, it ended up snowing! It started around 10:00 and snowed the rest of the day. We started off the day by going to Warm Waves Coffee. They were only…

  • Road Trip Part 3, Home

    After a very quick trip to New Orleans, we headed home to Dry Prong. Yep, you read that right, I am the Village of Dry Prong. When I lived there, I think the population was somewhere around 325. I think that is slightly low, but that was what was on the road sign, so who…

  • A Much Overdue Post #2 from NOLA

    I know this is much overdue, but school started, Hurricane Irma paid a visit and quite frankly, I still haven’t found a good balance for blogging, but I’m working on it.  Anyway, when we were last together, I reviewed our fabulous hotel, The Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery. I loved it so much that I…

  • Where to lay your head while in New Orleans–the Old No. 77 Hotel and Chandlery

    When I started looking for hotels in New Orleans, I started looking, like most people do, in the French Quarter.  I stayed in the French Quarter a couple of years ago and it made everything so convenient. This year, I wanted something different. Amanda had visited in New Orleans last summer, so with both of…

  • Road Trippin’ 2017 Part 1, the drive to New Orleans

    What do you do when your daughter moves home, you both have the summer off before you both return to the classroom and you need a break? You take a road trip to Louisiana with a two day stop in New Orleans, that’s what!  After our trip to TSA Nationals, Amanda and I were both…

  • NaBloPoMo What the Heck?

    As it appears that I’m going months between posts, I’m am going to participate in National Blog Posting Month, otherwise known as NaBloPoMo. It’s a sister event to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWrMo). As there is no way that I’m going to write an entire this month, I’m going to try and write a blog…

  • Village of the Arts Adventure

    Village of the Arts Adventure

    Several months ago, my friend Chip at Oceans and Lands Custom Travel Planners let me know that he was headed to my neck of the woods to explore the Village of the Arts in the middle of Bradenton.   Since it had been years since I’ve explored that area and a west vancouver realtor recommend us this…

  • Champagne’s Swamp Tours, Road Trip Day 4.

    Champagne’s Swamp Tours, Road Trip Day 4.

        We decided that our swamp tour would be the last thing on our scheduled trip through South Louisiana and after looking a brochures and looking at Yelp and TripAdvisor, we settled on Champagne’s Swamp Tours in Breaux Bridge. Breaux Bridge is a quick twenty-minute drive from Lafayette. My mom wasn’t into the airboat…

  • Louisiana Road Trip Day 3.

    Louisiana Road Trip Day 3.

    We headed out of New Orleans on Friday, but before we left, I snapped this guy jamming out and DJing  his own concert. He was having a great time! Headed out of the city, you can see the Super Dome peeping out from behind the building.   After we left New Orleans, we headed toward…
