I collect shot glasses & my husband collects golf balls, so that's what we ended up with as souveniers for ourselves. I also got a magnet for the refrigerator. I've been trying to only bring things into my house lately that will have a specific use, so I didn't get a Mardi Gras mask.
We didn't end up going to Marie Laveaux, but we went in several voodoo shops. It's wild how much stuff they have specifically for voodoo down there.
There are SO many things that we didn't end up doing. But, with crappy weather and only staying 2 nights & 3 days (2 of which are travel days), there's not much you can do. I just hope Paul is up for revisiting NO some time in the future. I told him he'd see boobs on Bourbon Street & he only saw one set from a lady my mom's age, so I'm not sure if he'll want to go back. Just kidding. But, it definitely wasn't wild on Bourbon Street like I thought it always was. I think I would want to go back in the first 3 months of a year.
