Since this blog IS titled "The Lovely Things Are" it only seems appropriate to share the things I find lovely each week! I'm really excited to start this first official feature to my blog, so maybe I can call myself a cool blogger for real now?

No, not yet? Yeah, you're probably right, I should get more readers than just Morgan (HI SHMORG) before I start running for blogger of the year.

Without further ado, the lovely things are...
This weekend my parents and I took a little weekend trip to NOLA. It was such a nice mini getaway with lots of great food and even more drink! I really hope I can squeeze in a few more fun trips before summer ends.
Ah, yes the food I was talking about. I'm not personally a big breakfast eater. I don't like a lot of normal breakfast foods and am even picky about the ones I do like. I'm happier in the morning with a soda and a chocolate bar (to each his own, eh?), but this little brunch place in New Orleans was AMAZING! I had fried soft shell crab with hashbrowns and scrambled eggs. The praline bacon was also to DIE for. I would STRONGLY recommend Elizabeth's Restaurant on Gallier St to anyone in that area!
Friday night I had the privilege of sitting in the box at the Ranger's game! We played well, it didn't rain, and I could watch the game live from in the air conditioning. What could be better?
Last but not least, are beignets. Oh beignet, there is nothing quite like you. If you have never had a beignet, shame on you. Cafe du Monde's beignets definitely live up to the reputation.

What things are you loving this week? I'd love to hear from anyone who stumbles across this blog! (and obviously you, shmorgan.) love, lindsay

  1. Looking at the instagrams just made me infinitely more jealous. But we'll go on our own simply lovely trip soon enough!
