This past weekend we headed to New Orleans for an American Academy of Pediatric Dental Conference. I was looking forward to getting my CE hours of course, but most importantly eating some delicious food and maybe squeezing in some shopping. 
The first night we headed to my parentals favorite restaurant, Galatoire's. It is definitely a New Orleans eating tradition.
happy parents

James enjoying himself despite being under the weather

My Godchaux salad, crabmeat and shrimp in a mustard dressing...it was wonderful!
The next day mom and I hit Magazine street (thanks to Shannon and Mary Russell for the tips!), but unfortunately it starting pouring, so we had to cut it short. I did buy Lane a couple of really cute things at Pippen Lane and had a slice of King Cake heaven at Sucre. We ate lunch at Luke, one of John Besh's restaurants...I don't have any pictures because I was too busy inhaling my Croque Madame. It was AMAZING. 
The next day after our morning meetings we went to St. James Cheese company, another Miller fam recommendation. It too was delish.

dad and I sooo enthused about the cheese

this picture does not do it justice, but the Gruyere and Caramelized onion sandwich was perfection. like a warm bowl of French Onion soup, sandwich style
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped at Tara Shaw Antiques to browse. It definitely could only be considered browsing as there were several pieces that were the same price as a brand new car. But, oh how beautiful they were!! Here are some of my favorites:

beautiful chest

neat stairwell piece

I'll take all of the above thanks!

I have been on the hunt for a buffet for our dining room, too bad this one cost more than our kitchen cabinets

Dad being a good sport and looking for a deal!! This chair had his name all over it! note:sarcasm

We had a good trip, although James and mom were both sick during parts of it. I was ready to get home to see Lane boy though (thanks Osborns for babysitting!).
