I can’t believe the time got away from me. I hadn’t blogged in about 3 weeks.
I’m noticing that, it’s taking longer for me to recover from Mardi Gras.
I’m gonna have to do something about that, especially since I’m waiting on the Krewe of Nyx to call me, or email me.
Yeah, every time I mention Mardi Gras, I’m mentioning “Krewe of Nyx”…lol
Mardi Gras…KREWE OF NYX!
Just trying to keep that positive energy in the air so that email can arrive.
The hubby and I will be riding in the Krewe of King Arthur next year!
I searched the net for krewes looking for new members and it seems a LOT of them are due to Katrina and the economy.
The Krewe of King Arthur stood out most to me….seems like it’s really diverse and going through some photos, I noticed someone I met at The Howling in the Wires book launch on one of their floats. She’s a super cool, uber smart chick who loves NOLA with a passion and if she’s a member…it’s gotta be a great krewe.
Parading ain’t cheap though.
Having to purchase throws to last an entire route takes some cheddar,
or as my kids say, some GUAP!
…the latest slang term for money.
The fact that I go to so many parades is finally gonna pay off.
I’ve gone through some of the throws I caught and surprisingly enough, I have quite a few that I can recycle and use when I ride on the float.
Why some folks are throwing bags of beads at us, I don’t know but…THANK YOU! I also have boxes and boxes of loose beads that I’m gonna clean and recycle so I can use those as well.
All in support of a “Green Mardi Gras.”
May as well use’em since I have’em.
Also, I got a great deal on these plush gators! They were really cheap since carnival is over.
Can’t wait to throw these to the kids on the route!
The Lion King Musical is in New Orleans at the Mahalia Jackson Theater of Performing Arts from March 15th to April 15th.
It’s been receiving rave reviews. A friend of mine went on opening night and she LOVED it!
Navy Seal and I will be sitting front and center on April 12th!
The Louisiana Crawfish Festival is this weekend in “da parish” …Chalmette from March 22nd -25th.
It’s raining something fierce here so, I hope they don’t get rained out.
I haven’t been in years but, I want to go Friday…weather permitting.
I could really use a dish of Crawfish Monica right about now.
One of my favorite bloggers, Sooz and her husband J, are arriving in New Orleans tomorrow!
I found her blog(follow your crazy) one day surfing the net and I was instantly hooked!
Sooz is relocating from Denver.
Her body was there but, her soul has been in NOLA just waiting for her to arrive.
Tomorrow,they become one.
She followed her dream and moved to a place her heart and soul desired…you go girl!
Life is for the living!
Well, that’s all I have for now.
Let the festivals begin!!
