I'm going to the USA!!!

So frigging excited!!
My brother has just booked and paid for flights for me to Go to New Orleans and then Minnosota.
Only 10 days..but going to spend a long weekend in NO with Christie (dontjinxme) and then the last 6 days with Molly83!!!
Would love to come visit everyone...but sadly time and my brother wallet won't allow.
Next on my list will be Nell and Mary and my Step bro and everyone...LOL

My brother is naughty though..hes paid to get revenge for M going to Italy when I was supposed to visit him...hahaha...
M isn't too happy at my going..he has been invited but the flight and staying with strangers has put him off.
Luckily a mutual friend has been really nice in front of him so hes relaxed a bit...he can go and do boy things...won't even mind if there are strip clubs involved!!

I cannot wait for October!
M said what if your preggers....well the very most I would be is 5 months..so I can still fly!!

Does anyone know how much a VISA is....going to fill out the app when I get home from work.

So freaking excited!
Can't believe I'm going to see my girls!!!
If you have me on Facebook you know we three are close little bunnies. Smile

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh and I stop in Detroit for a couple of hours if anyone wants to keep me company in the airport. Smile

*jealous* DH and I want to go to NO.

DH is Acadian, which (if you don't know) is the same origin/group of people who settled cajun areas of Louisiana. The Acadians (French people) in Eastern Canada were forced out of their land by the English a few hundred years back and many of those people moved down the coast and settled in now what is the Cajun areas of the USA and New Orleans. Same roots, same French language (which is slightly different than France French) and a lot of the same food origins.

I think I shall have to surprise DH with a trip down there one day. Smile Have lots of hush puppies and crawfish for us while you are there!

His french drawl only comes through when he's drunk sadly. It's cute though when I catch him on it. Smile

Beignet (french for donut) is probably what you are thinking. They are yummy deep fried goodness!

How exciting! Yahoo Though I admit I'm sad you won't be coming my way this time. Next time, though!

I'm not sure why Molly isn't around on P.org anymore, but she's on FB... if anyone wants to try and hook up with her, PM me and I'll get in touch with her.

Nell...I am sad too....but next time.....when you're not adapting to baby number 3!!..:)
You are top of my list.

Shannon...I fly into Detroit at about midday I think...leave there at 1515. Smile
That would be cool....would there be time between flights and check in?

Mary..I know...not even seeing my step bro..although he may come to NO.

Just send Molly a message on Facebook..I know she would love to hear from you...she asks after the ladies here constantly.

I'll pm you. Smile

OMG LIZ!!!! Yay!! You will certainly have so much fun with those girls. And it's pretty much impossible to NOT have fun while in NOLA. Such a fun city! I'm totally jealous of your beignets at Cafe Du Monde. Hopefully the weather will have cooled off by the time you are coming in October. Sometimes it's really hot and sometimes really cold. You just never know in October.

Do you know what day you'll be landing and connecting from Detroit?
I'll most likely be at work if it's a Monday to Friday, so I guess I won't beable to meet up even if it's for a few minutes.

Wanted to visit years ago after the horrible Sept 11th but thought it was disrespectful to do that so soon after tragedy so didn't...but I guess I wouldn't have known you then....if I had I may have just to make sure you were okay. Smile
