Friday was Kings Day so, you know what that means,
KING CAKE TIME BABY!
I know a lot of people aren’t from the area and don’t know the significance of king cakes so, here’s a great link that explains it all right here.
But, who really cares about the significance,
they TASTE good!
NOLA.com had a contest for who had the best king cakes.
The Randazzo’s family held the top three spots.
I went to Randazzo’s in Metairie to get me one but, I went too late and they only had LSU king cakes.
I’m a traditionalist…give me the a regular old king cake….
oval shaped and sugary.
I’ll be going back today bright and early for one.
Oracle, I’m sending my babies their king cake. I’ll email you with the arrival date.
We’ve entered the official start of Mardi Gras!
I’ve already talked to a few co-workers and we’re hammering out a deal for them to work the Endymion/Bacchus weekend for me. The problem is, most of them live on the
wet westbank and NOMTOC is their big parade. It’s always the same day as Endymion so, we’re trying to figure something out.
I won’t be working that weekend though…
I’m getting it how I live.
Ok, a lot of folks are like, what does THAT mean?
Well, according the urban dictionary it means,
1: to get money however you can or to use methods most available to you
2. to acquire anything by any means necessary or available.
It’s one of those NOLA slangs that I hear waayy too often…lol.
Is it just me or are the seasons running into one another?
I was taking down the Christmas decorations and putting up the Mardi Gras ones at the same time.
The grandstand seating tickets in Lafayette Square are on sale now, they started early this year.
Here’s the link.
NavySeal and I will purchasing tickets once again.
This is our 3rd year now…wow.
I think since the kids pretty much do their own thing for Mardi Gras, this will be our official spot.
We’re going to sit on the other side of the street this year.
I’ve noticed that the crowd is thinner on the Federal Reserve side so, that’s where I aim to be.
On another note, my daughter got her nose pierced *sigh* She had been whining for one for a while now so, her dad brought her (and paid for it) as one her Christmas gifts. I wasn’t gonna pay for it but, I did agree to it. She’ll be 18 in a few months and I’m trying to be a parent who supports her individuality so, I was willing to compromise. She could get one but, it could only be a stud and it had to be the smallest stud available. She happily agreed and as much as I hate to admit it, it really does look cute on her. My daughter has a free spirit… I get her. Even when I feel like strangling her…I get her and she gets me.
The Saints game was awesome! I had to watch it at work but, we were some screaming fools on the job let me tell ya!
Now, let’s just go to Cali and git-r-done again!
BCS Championship is today!
I’m not going to the game but, I intend to go out there in some of the hoopla,
get in the midst of all that crazy energy.
