Weekend in New Orleans: Part 3

This really will be my last post about New Orleans.  I just happened to take lots and lots of pictures. 
Our last day of our mini-vacation and my number one wish was that we would have beignets at Cafe du Monde.  

My wish was granted, but we were a bit surprised when we were greeted by this rather long line. 

However, there was plenty to see across the street to keep our minds occupied.
And we made it! 

The beignets and coffee were heavenly, and well worth the wait. 
It was ridiculously bright out that day.  Luckily there was an Urban Outfitters right on Decauter Street.  I treated myself to a new hat and sunglasses.   It was my birthday weekend, after all.
Upon more exploring of the French Quarter, I stumbled upon these amazing plantation shutters. I am now obsessed with the idea of having teal plantation shutters on my home one day.  Thank you New Orleans. 
It is fitting that this was the last picture I snapped during our weekend getaway.   We could have stayed on that street corner all day listening to this talented women belt out those tunes. 
Hope you all enjoyed following our trip!
