Had our USCIS "biometrics" (electronic fingerprinting) appointment in New Orleans yesterday. We were thankful that when we were assigned our appointments, that we got NOLA (the closest option) - and that the date was a "good" one! We took the whole family plus my mom and made a day of it.
Our first stop of the day was Krispy Kreme! (All good road trips begin there, don't they?) They were giving away free donuts yesterday, so we HAD to go there! Next we made the drive to New Orleans. The drive went smoothly. We got there a little early, so we decided to stop somewhere quick and get some lunch. We should have had more than enough time, but there is so much road construction that we were almost late getting to the USCIS office. That could be disastrous, because if you are late, they can consider your application "abandoned"! Thankfully, we got there just in time, and there was no problem.
