All aboard the football express!
We were in NOLA by about 2:30pm and we immediately hit Bourbon Street. Yes, I've been to Vegas, Cancun, and Bourbon Street while pregnant.
I've been to New Orleans with Forrest several times but this has been the only time I was pregnant.
We met up with some of our college friends and went to Tableau, a Dickie Brennan's restaurant for what was a most amazing lunch.
Shrimp n Grits with the heads--no problem for this prego!
Then it was off to the Super Dome via pedi cab! It was truly terrifying but much better than walking, plus it was FREE so it was even better than a regular taxi.
It really was mayhem....
The Super Dome was pretty neat--I was excited to be there for the first time.
Sadly, the team could not pull it out. Somehow I maintained my composure and was pretty calm the entire time (maybe because I was pretty tired--it had been a long day and the game was over so late). I hate that we couldn't win and advance to the championship but I guess that's what the playoffs are for.
The Ohio State band may can spell OHIO in 2 different fonts, but our band can make an elephant and then make it march down the field...
Regardless, Forrest and I had a great time and have no regrets about going. It was officially our last little trip together before the baby comes (unless we throw one together but I think we are out of time for that).
Of course, the bus did not leave on time. One guy's wife was missing (why would you leave your wife if she is as bad at directions as you claim) and one totally rude guy just didn't show back up and we nearly left him (I would have voted to leave his selfish self LONG before we actually did--if my waddling body can make it back to the bus in the rain after a loss on time, so can you!). Forrest luckily slept most of the way home and I did a little bit, but someone had to make sure the bus driver was alert so I stayed up most of the time. I got to sleep all day on Friday while Forrest worked so I wasn't too concerned. My feet did swell up enormously from sitting on the bus that long but over all, it was quite the little adventure and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Until next season Bama! ROLL TIDE!!
