This girl lived on a farm surrounded by stinky, muddy animals, and loud energetic children.
She spent her days battling dust bunnies and trying to reach the summit of Mt. Laundry.
She also dabbled with writing online.
She started a blog about her life on the farm,
Then she started a blog about cooking and her comfort food recipes,
Then she started a blog about stuff her Grandma made,
Then she started a blog about her battle with weight and new shiny new Lap Band.
She typed and wrote silly stories, yummy recipes, old fashioned tricks and tips...
And she was happy...
One day she got an e-mail inviting her to come visit New Orleans.
Harrah's Casino & Hotel in New Orleans, as a matter of fact.
They were inviting her and some other bloggers to come and enjoy the
Greatest Weekend Ever.
This weekend was geared towards people who love food from the Houston area.
She was surprised,
She was intrigued,
She was excited!
Obviously, there had been some sort of mistake...
They MUST have meant to invite another blogger from her area.
One who was interesting...
One who was popular...
One who occasionally left their homes...
She decided she couldn't pass up such a great sounding adventure.
Now she finds herself in the incredibly welcoming and charming town of New Orleans.
She finds herself staying in an amazingly beautiful hotel room.
She finds herself taking a bath in a tub thats bigger than her whole bathroom back on the farm.
Everywhere she goes she finds new and exciting things to see hear smell and taste,
She has found herself surrounded with an amazing group of people.
Together, they ate at famous restaurants in New Orleans,
They had amazing conversations,
And the food? On My Goodness the FOOD!
One thing that she noticed, that convinced her for sure that there had been a mistake made when she was invited is...
These other bloggers?
They are SERIOUS foodies!
She felt like a fraud.
She felt like she didn't belong with such knowledgeable people.
But she fell in love with each of them anyway.
She is learning from them.
She is thrilled to be in their company.
They are used to the fancy schmancy foods...
They have never made "Prison Wine"
They are used to the "good stuff".
She finds herself giggling as she eats dinner... Trying to imagine how her family back on the farm would react if she served them a platter of prosciutto wrapped figs for dinner.
She knows that they will figure out that they have made a mistake....
She knows it's just a matter of time before they toss her out on her big 'ol redneck butt.
But before they do...
She is gonna give YOU the opportunity to come and experience New Orleans like she is.
