STEAUXN SOUP

How mine and I kick along together in new orleans (photo365) - this is a personal account

Various Dates: Saints players and the baby, found out the kid is a boy, 8th Krewe Du Vieux, sober Mardi Gras, Patrick rides in Paddy’s Day Parade in Irish Channel on our 5-year anniversary, closed a house ON Saint Patrick’s Day, and our dog is still adorable.

It’s been a busy 2.5 months.

I am due to have a baby in 40 days.

Lots of reports of heavy bro activity throughout New Orleans this Mardi Gras. Use caution. Beware Natty Light.

Excellent

12-22-2013: holidays in Ohio. Excited to be in a home. Hoping this time next year we’ll be in one of our own in New Orleans. Early baby shower tonight, since we are in town.

11-28-2013: (part two) 16 weeks pregnant today. Have been sick w pregnancy or bronchitis for 12 of them. This lovely stomach gangster is trying to kill me from inside me. I love it anyway. Ah, motherhood. 

I lay awake at night thinking of all the things we will do to make our kid super successful and rich to make it pay me back for this time. I am super pumped and ready for the time where I glow and just sit back and get fat.

11-28-2013: Look, Thanksgiving is just much fancier when we do it at somebody else’s house with their family. Putting a dining room table into our five year plan somewhere. Thanks for hosting us Bambricks and Rogers and Rodriguezes.

11-23-2013: Can’t promise one a day but I’m going to work on updating once a week. Wedding and baby.

10-10-2013: Special Occasion Post Alert. Patrick and I were able to see and hear the baby for the first time today. The baby was so tiny and it’s heart was so big and it’s skin was so translucent. The heart was beating so fast. It really looked and felt like the baby, at that point in time, was all heart.
Which was not at all surprising to me.
Have a drink for me and toast to the dearest and most pleasant fetus ever.

Picture Perfect in New Orleans

In my perfect life, Patrick has tenure at his university doing what he loves. I am running field trips, social media, and the office for Leidenheimers, we are hosting Saints game BBQs at our house for all our friends and our friends’ kids in Gentilly, and I don’t have twitter, so I never question whether or not I belong in New Orleans

Patrick is right

I feel another Steauxn Soup binge coming on. Lot’s to update in the past couple of months. Of course, there are photos.

04-27-2013: Jazz Fest today. Saw Allen Toussaint for the first time live, finally. He was introduced as a gentleman and a genius and wore a white coat and pants with colorful beading on each. He was excellent.

As was Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite on Gentilly. That man’s stinkface has to be one of the most engaging faces I’ve ever seen. It was worth the cost of ticket and the sunburn and I was happy that I got to be there when Patrick saw Ben for the first time. 

The photo of Ben was taken by my friend who has hook ups, FA. Patrick and I agree that when he plays slide guitar that it looks like the guitar is hurting him.

Also came up with a great wedding gift idea: brass passes.

04-24-2013: Gardenias our old landlord gave us are finally blooming! It’s been nearly a year. They haven’t died, but haven’t thrived either. Until now I guess. They’ll be coming with us when we move. 
On that note, anyone know of any awesome affordable Uptown apartments that are coming available and will accept a dog?

04-21-2013: Patrick get’s a separate update. We celebrated his birthday yesterday (it is tomorrow).
That cake is called I-Used-to-Be-Thin-Mint by Debbie Does Doberge. It was baller.
I am so happy to marrying this guy in less than a year. I am so happy he is a year older. I am so happy that he is smart. I am so happy that he wants our kids to play soccer and to be their coach. I am so happy that he loves my food and will probably never leave me because of it. I am so happy he loves me.
But most importantly, and chief among the reasons I am happy with Patrick, I am so happy that he is so good looking and attractive.
