My first time in Lafayette

Apparently Lafayette is a pretty cool place. I was there two weeks ago and saw all of two blocks of the city – the distance between our hotel and the Heymann Performing Arts Theater where the pageant was held.

I did get to try a daiquiri from one of the infamous drive-throughs. If you’re stumped on want flavor to get, I approve of the Bellini kind. Yum yum. We also visited Prejean’s for one of our meals. They’re notorious for their great seafood, so naturally I got a chicken caesar salad and refused to try anything cultural (they had fried alligator on the menu). It’s a rough life when your palate recoils at the thought of anything other than wine, cheese, melted cheese, or cheese in the form of dip.

The whole point of the trip was to crown our new Miss Louisiana USA and Miss Louisiana Teen USA. As much as I hated to see Erin and Marlee give up their crowns, our new queens are absolutely wonderbar.

Here are some of my fave pics:

And here are our winners in their gowns:

Kristen and Bailey.  Next up: North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama!

    I live not too far from Laffy. And I don't even eat fried alligator, but I do eat seafood. Would you happen to know the former Miss Louisiana, Hope Anderson? Just curious…I went to college with her and danced with her πŸ™‚
