Most of my trip expenses were covered for the purpose of review, all opinions are my own.
On my recent visit to Louisiana, we had a great time exploring the areas around Lafayette, but on my last day there, we had the opportunity to spend the entire day in Lafayette, Louisiana. Lafayette is a lively college town, with a rich history and plenty to keep visitors busy. You need fare more than a day to explore this city, the fourth largest in Louisiana, but if you only have 24 hours, the following would be an ideal way to spend your day.

When we pulled up to McGee's Landing in our air conditioned charter bus, it was apparent that we were in for yet another authentic Louisiana experience. The week had been full of them. In fact, we had just finished up a Cajun style breakfast at Cafe des Amis that morning, with their bountiful beignets and foot stopping Zydeco band, it was quite the experience. This Atchafalaya Basin Swamp Tour at McGee's Landing promised no less.

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central for the National Pasta Association. I received pasta samples and a stipend to facilitate the creation of pasta recipes as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As a busy mom who works full-time from home and also homeschools four boys, it can be stressful to try and plan a week's worth of meals that the whole family can enjoy. That is why I am teaming up with PastaFits.org, a nutrition and culinary education resource sponsored by the National Pasta Association. As a National Pasta Association Ambassador, I will be sharing delicious and healthy meals for your family all made with pasta. The five recipes below are all on the Pasta Fits website, and can help make your weeknight dinners fast and delicious!
