Lawd, I can’t believe my son is 25 years old. Where did the time go?
Happy Birthday, Ryan! I love you… to infinity and beyond!
I know this blog post is late like a big dawg, but so much has been going on that it’s getting really hard to keep this ole’ dinosaur afloat. Bare with me y’all. I’m trying to come up with ways to keep this blog from biting the dust. We’ll discuss more of that later. I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.
Since so many nyx sisters and future nyx sisters come to the blog looking for pics of events, I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.
We had a new venue this year. The ball was held at the Convention Center and the last thing anyone can say is that they didn’t have room because…WE DID. It was beautifully decorated and spacious. The Captain looked stunning as always and Goddess Nyx VI is the beautiful Zenia Williams.
I do miss the Hilton, but we’ve outgrown her. I’m looking forward to getting as acquainted with the new venue as I was with the old one.
After the 3 course dinner, we danced the night away. I had a wonderful time. I should have taken a picture of my shoes because I have officially given up on wearing heels to the ball. I walk around and dance entirely too much so I purchased a pair of blinged out sneakers to wear. They felt like slippers! They were sooo comfy. I don’t believe in suffering for the cause. My dress will by fly, but I won’t wear heels and dance for hours on end…nada.
Here are a few pics of the ball. I love going to the ball…it’s my favorite event.
Yes, I am a bad BayouCreole. This is so unlike me. Mardi Gras is in full swing and I have not blogged a thing. I have so much going on right now it’s crazy, but I will be back soon with a full recap on my season with Nyx (Nyx turns Syx) and other happenings.
I just wanna say that my ride was epic. Last year was so fantastic, I didn’t think it could get any better…but apparently it could because last night was over the moon!
Perfect weather, perfect crowd, and perfect krewe. It.Was.Amazing. I have to shout out the Captain of the krewe, Julie Lea. It was her vision to bring about another all-female krewe to ride at night. We are 2,900 women strong.She’s the one who keeps it all together…and she does one helluva job. Well done Julie…very well indeed.
I don’t usually go to the parades on Friday so, I’ll put a post up then about the ride and the work my way back to the ball.
I am one tired duck, but I wouldn’t trade if for anything.
Happy Mardi Gras y’all!
My dad and my son. 63 years apart. This is what happens when you ask your grandson to wash your car for you, but you’re a control freak so, you gotta go out there and spray the water. Family…ya gotta love’em.
Be safe out there. Halloween is always kinda special in this city. Folks really go all out decorating their homes.
Here’s a peek at a cool haunted house on Magazine Street.
And last weekend I finally caught the Krewe of Boo parade as it rolled down the streets of New Orleans. I have been trying to catch this parade for the longest. Every year, something would come up and I’d miss it. NavySeal and I spent the day in the French Quarters and hung out until it passed. It’s a pretty cool parade…they threw a lot of candy and stuff. I’ll probably put this on my list of parades to see every year.
Yeah, this city keeps ya on ya toes.
I’m gonna try to give out some candy this year. Last year, we didn’t have any kids trick or treating. When I grew up, we didn’t have to leave the area and we’d have more candy than we knew what to do with. I barely see lights on now. Times have changed.
