Well, I’ve made it back! I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve hardly have time to sleep.
I wasn’t going to leave my readers hanging around carnival time though.
No way would I do that!
Because y’all know good and well, I’m going to those parades. Yep, I’ll be out there in full force…weather permitting of course.
I’m not hanging out in the cold and rain.
But so far, the weather has been BEAUTIFUL! Lets just hope it stays that way.
So much as been going on. The first predominately African-American female krewe hit the streets last Sunday.
The Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale.

And it you can’t make it to the parades, the parade cams will be broadcasting live so, you can still see me when I roll with the fantastic Mystic Krewe of Nyx! The link to NOLA.COM parade cam is here.
The audio and video is really great this year on the NOLA.com parade cam(when it isn’t going out on them) so I’m gonna give them shout out and if you can’t make it to the parades, tune in to those guys.
Also, for my Purple Knight family and followers, the St. Augustine Marching 100 will be in the following parades,
Cleopatra,Alla,Nyx,Muses,Hermes,Endymion,Mid-City,Bacchus,Orpheus and Rex.
Today is a very busy day for me because,
THE MYSTIC KREWE OF NYX ROLLS TONIGHT!!
I’m rushing and getting all of my last-minute stuff together. It’s pretty hectic. My purses are ready to go though so that’s a good thing.
If you’re going to the parades tonight, I’ll be on Float 20, sidewalk side, bottom. Just yell Bayoucreole and I’ll hand you a purse! They are my babies…it’s gonna be hard to part with them, but I’ll have more babies next year. Here are a few of my favorites.
Nyx is all about sisterhood.

The very last purse I created this season.
I posted a pic of these on another post but, just in case folks didn’t see them. Here ya go!
I am really excited about my second ride with the krewe. We’re supposed to have a wonderful night. I’m expecting a ton of people out there…I hope I have enough throws.
The Krewe of Muses rides tomorrow. I’ll be out there cheering my friends on and taking pictures for you all to see. If I can get a few videos to put up, I will.
In fact, I’ll take a lil 30 second video of me on the float riding down St. Charles Ave. so you can see what it’s like up there.
It’s gonna be a long day so, I better get moving.
If you made it this far, leave a comment or two because,
IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!!
See how I threw that in there?
I wanted to do a king cake giveaway but, I decided against that one because they use UPS and the person has to be home when they deliver it or UPS will probably leave it at the door. I don’t want them leaving folks king cake at the door all willy-nilly.
So, I’m going to do a $50 gift card one. It’s just my way of saying thank you for sticking with me…even when I take a break for a few months.
I really appreciate it.
All you have to do is check for my blog posts,leave a comment and I’ll put your name in the hat!On Feb.17th (mardi gras day), I will have Navy Seal pull the winner.
I’ll announce the winner on Ash Wednesday.
Tomorrow, I’ll talk about my ride and I’ll post a few videos of St. Aug and Landry-Walker for my out- of state- folks who are feeling homesick right about now.
Then we can catch up on what’s been going on with the Bayoucreole Chick!
HAPPY MARDI GRAS Y’ALL!!
