Favorite Snowball flavor: Nectar cream extra cream

Favorite Baton Rouge Restaurant: Beausoleil

During LSU games you’ll find her… doing literally anything other than watching the game. *Pauses for collective gasp* I know, this is blasphemy, especially since both my husband and I graduated from LSU, but we’re just not a big football house. *Whispers* half the time I don’t even know when LSU is playing.

Favorite family outing in Baton Rouge: A zoo day or lunch and a trip to Barnes and Noble.

Raising kids in Baton Rouge is: everyday magic. We’re lucky to be so close to family and I love the small town vibe with city amenities. Baton Rouge is undergoing something of a renaissance and I’m happy my family and I are here for the ride.
