Soooo, I’m in one of my best friend’s wedding this December.
For her bachelorette party we’re going to New Orleans (wooohooo!) to party it up for a few days and nights.
Through one of our other besties we’re getting tickets for a Saints Pre-game (and really good seats at that)…
We’re planning to surprise the bride with custom tanks that say something really witty and fun and incorporate a play on words with Saints in it.
Although I usually thrive on this kind of thing I’m coming up blank.

You mean more for the Saints game or NOLA in general??

I have no idea because I’m not creative…. like, at all, but I have to pop in and say I am SO jealous! I want to go back to New Orleans in the worst way! Stop at Cafe du Monde if you get a chance. The beignets are to die for.
ETA: Did I mention how jealous I am? Good god, am I jealous! Haha I would go back to NOLA in a hot second if it wasn’t a 23 hour drive!

@jpalm13: For the Saints game…
@MissBoPeep: Awwww, we still have a 12 hour drive from where we are, but it will be soooo worth it! Darling Husband and I went last November and I LOVED every minute of it, the sights, the food, the drinks… you can’t help but love the city! We stopped in at Cafe Du Monde the last morning we were there, it was amazing!
Also I have a special place in my heart for Acme Oyster House…omg. I die.
Oh, and we also saw the filming of a capital one commercial while we were there, so funny!

@Mrs.tobe: We had an absolute blast! The ride down sucked though, I blew a tire in the middle of nowheresville Alabama on a Sunday afternoon, it took us over 6 hours to find a new tire and get back on the road. Did you go to Yo Mama’s when you went?

WOOOOO FOR MY HOMETOWN! And GEAUX SAINTS.
How about “I DO DAT” instead of Who Dat…you know, since she’s saying I do?

@MissBoPeep: Nope, sure didn’t…what’s Yo Mama’s?
@LizLemon: That’s cute! But her Maid/Matron of Honor is dead set on using “Saints” somehow. But I’ll run that one by her. And we bridesmaids need something that coordinates.
I cannot believe I am drawing such a blank.

Its a bar & restaurant. They have the best burgers there! We had so much amazing food there and those burgers were one of the best things we ate while we were there! 🙂

Okay, so I was thinking over the weekend… and here is the only idea I’ve really had.
I thought the bride’s shirt could say: “This Bride ain’t no Saint”
And all of our shirts could say something like: “95% Bridesmaid 5% Saint” -and each could be different values of each category…
Does that sound really dumb?

@Mrs.tobe: I think that’s a cute saying! I like “I Do Dat” too if she changes her mind. Both are cute!
I’m so jealous about the Saints game. I’ve lived 3 hours away from NO my entire life and have never been to a game. 🙁
