Shower fun

So this morning I got out of the shower and dried off. As I was putting the towell up I felt something rough, so I looked at what I was touching and my thumb was right on top of a scorpion!

I had completely dried off with a scorpion on my towel.

no that's not the scorpion. But I had to include a picture for dramatic effect.

New Orleans

A few months a go we decided to go to New Orleans for a weekend trip. While N.O. is famous for the French Quarter, Bourbon Street and lots of alcohol(among other things), that wasn't our cup of tea.

We enjoyed antique shopping, eating lots of food and visiting the plantations.

There are two types of plantations in N.O. Creole plantations and English plantations. The English plantations were super extravagant and fancy, however the tours offered there were lacking excitement. One cool note lots of movies use the plantation homes. The Creole homes were very colorful and the tours were much more interesting. We especially enjoyed the Laura Plantation. They allowed us to walk into every room of the house and even took us to the basement.

Car Shopping

So we're looking for a new car, we've decided we are going to buy a small SUV. Our two favorites are the Equinox and the CX-7

Tell me your opinion!
