HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Welcome 2013! I am so glad that the new year is here. Honestly,I don’t feel like I accomplished anything in 2012. Most of the time, I felt as if I was spinning my wheels and not moving. I’m sure if I racked my brain hard enough, I’d be able to think of something.
I shouldn’t have to rack my brain though.
I’m gonna try to do better and be better this year.
This year is a milestone year for me.
I’ll be the BIG 5-0 this year!
Any day above ground is a gift but, I’m really looking forward to turning 50 this year!
I welcome getting older…just want to be as healthy and physically fit as possible while doing it.
Also, this will be my 5th year blogging!
Lawd, how have I been blogging for 5 years!?!
Good ole’ NOLA has helped me with that…she’s always throwing some sort of party.
So what’s happening with me and mine?
Well for starters, my dad has been wonderful!
He’s more like his old self…maybe even better. He hasn’t been forgetful or argumentative so, that in itself is a blessed thing. I think the new meds he’s on are helping him out a lot. He’s been spoiling PurpleKnight and YellowJacket so, they’re in 7th heaven right about now.
Mardi Gras is in the air!
Oh, I almost forgot that I’m keeping positive carnival karma around me….so,
Krewe of Nyx!
Every time I mention Mardi Gras I’m supposed to say,
KREWE OF NYX!
It’s to keep positive energy heading this way so, I can move up their waiting list.
Keeping that positive energy out there is slowly paying off. Take a look at the pic,
I’ve heard from the Krewe!
Don’t break out the umbrellas and start second-lining just yet though. I’m a non-riding member of the krewe until I can get a riding spot. I’m happy with that because a lot of women are wishing membership would open up again…at least my foot is in the door. They even sent me a members only t-shirt and I get to go to the events which is cool because
Navy Seal and I are going to the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball!
Gotta get all glammed up for that one! Ball Gown,Tuxedo and Mask type of party!!
Finding a dress is gonna be hard as heck because I’m
so damned short petite but, I’m gonna find something.
I’m so excited to go! I can’t wait!
Today is the official start of my countdown to King Cake with 5 days to go!
I’ve decided to rev up this here ole’ blog a bit and follow the lead of my blog sister, LadyLee and do a giveaway!
I’m going to give away a Randazzo’s Kingcake!
All ya have to do is comment on the posts and I’ll put your name in the hat to be drawn. Each time you comment, I’ll put your name in so, the more, the better. At the end of the week, I’ll draw the name and announce the winner!
This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants a King Cake to get a free one! If you’ve never had one, here’s your chance to try it!
This is only for folks in the USA though, I can’t ship out of the country. I’ll have more details regarding the giveaway at the end of the week. It will probably be near the first weekend of Mardi Gras which is Jan 26 th so keep your eyes out for the giveaway post!
PurpleKnight and YellowJacket are fine. They’re doing their own thing now. They’ve both decided to go to the same college next fall and room together.
Those two ….can’t live with and can’t live without.
I’m glad they’re so close.
dog-abusing neighbors have moved!
I’m happy they’re gone.
I’m so glad I rescued my doggie from those crazy folks.
He’s living a wonderful life now.
We have some wonderful people staying in the house now. Real quiet family and respectful of the neighborhood. Last night they popped fireworks and swept the street afterwards.
Now that’s some thoughtful neighbors!
That’s all I have for now…I’ll be posting more frequently.
With Mardi Gras season here and the Super Bowl coming, I’m sure I’ll have lots to tell!
Have a blessed 2013 y’all!
