Hello all you lovely people. I have been MIA since I left for Mardi Gras a while back to meet up with some good friends who insisted on moving across the country to very inconvenient places. Since then I have been trying desperately to catch up at work, plus Anthony hasn’t been feeling well, and just, you know – life. BUT – I wanted to share some pictures with you from my attempt at surviving Mardi Gras. Some thoughts on this experience:

  1. They really need better beer in New Orleans.
  2. You think that catching beads is something you don’t care about until you CATCH SOME. Then it is ON.
  3. No, I did not flash anyone.
  4. I had a spiritual experience with macaroni and cheese during my stay, and I now know what “soul food” really means.

Hope you enjoy!

I am a hippie from California, so it was hard for me to accept that the only real way to get rid of your trash was to throw it on the ground. I would try to stack my cups and shove trash in it and hold it as long as I could - even though they had very thorough street cleanings every day. #hippiehabitsdiehard
