Krewe of Nyx Summer Social

Well ya’ll, I’ve been to my first function as an official Krewe of  Nyx member.


Saturday,the krewe  held its 3rd Annual Summer Social Meet and Greet.

It was a wonderful event!

When I first walked in, I was like,

Lawd, what have I gotten myself into? I don’t know a soul up in here! 

But, the energy in the room was off the charts.

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming that,

I was chatting it up with new friends in no time at all.

The food was great,the cocktails flowed abundantly (hey, this is New Orleans ) and the DJ kept the music spinning so naturally,

we all hit the dance floor!

We did more Wobbling and Cupid Shuffling than the law allows!

The cake was delish!

It was a great girls night out.

The thing I love most about the krewe (aside from being on a float and throwing like crazy) is that, their purpose is,

To encourage, foster, promote, and cultivate a spirit of sisterhood amongst the members of the Krewe.

I like that purpose.

I love this krewe.

I’m Still Here

It’s me again! I can’t believe its been two months since I’ve put a post out.  It’s been hard to sit at the computer lately.

I’m noticing that when the weather gets warm, it gets hard for me to blog.

Residual Katrina issues?

Maybe…especially after Hurricane Issac and a week without electricity.

I know it’s bad  because, I haven’t blogged about festivals. I’ve been to the French Quarter Fest and the Jazz Fest.

Still, I couldn’t push out a post.

Couldn’t even sit at the computer.

I tried to keep up with my favorite blogs.

Didn’t comment much, but I was  there.

I”m still here though.

I’m gonna try to post all week to catch y’all up on what’s happening in my world.

It’s been sorta quiet though.

My son turned 21 last month. ..he’s a grown ass man now.

YellowJacket now lives with her dad.

The house is almost TOO quiet.

Empty nests are not all they’re cracked up to be.

I love the sound of family around.

My running is coming along well.

I can run farther than one tree to the next now.

I actually look forward to running now and get upset if I can’t make it out there.

It’s hot as hell down here in NOLA and the summer hasn’t even really started yet.

I’m gonna have more posts this week.

I gotta get my Mojo back.

Miss y’all!
