Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball 2017

 

I know this blog post is late like a big dawg, but so much has been going on that it’s getting really hard to keep this ole’ dinosaur afloat.  Bare with me y’all. I’m trying to come up with ways to keep this blog from biting the dust. We’ll discuss more of that later. I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.

Since so many nyx sisters and future nyx sisters come to the blog looking for pics of events, I had to put out some pics of the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball which was held in January.

We had a new venue this year. The ball was held at the Convention Center and the last thing anyone can say is that they didn’t have room because…WE DID. It was beautifully decorated and spacious.  The Captain looked stunning as always and Goddess Nyx VI is the beautiful Zenia Williams.

I do miss the Hilton, but we’ve outgrown her. I’m looking forward to getting as acquainted with the new venue as I was with the old one.

After the 3 course dinner, we danced the night away. I had a wonderful time. I should have taken a picture of my shoes because I have officially given up on wearing heels to the ball. I walk around and dance entirely too much so I purchased a pair of blinged out sneakers to wear.  They felt like slippers! They were sooo comfy. I don’t  believe in suffering for the cause. My dress will by fly, but I won’t wear heels and dance for hours on end…nada.

Here are a few pics of the ball. I love going to the ball…it’s my favorite event.

Me and SOME of my throws!

Yes, I am a bad BayouCreole. This is so unlike me. Mardi Gras is in full swing and I have not blogged a thing. I have so much going on right now it’s crazy, but I will be back soon with a full recap on my season with Nyx (Nyx turns Syx) and other happenings.

 

I just wanna say that my ride was epic.  Last year was so fantastic, I didn’t think it could get any better…but apparently it could because last night was over the moon!

Perfect weather, perfect crowd, and perfect krewe. It.Was.Amazing. I have to shout out the Captain of the krewe, Julie Lea. It was her vision to bring about another all-female krewe to ride at night. We are 2,900 women strong.She’s the one who keeps it all together…and she does one helluva job. Well done Julie…very well indeed.

I don’t usually go to the parades on Friday so, I’ll put a post up then about the ride and the work my way back to the ball.

I am one tired duck, but I wouldn’t trade if for anything.

Happy Mardi Gras y’all!

 

Well, She’s Still Kicking.

This  ole’ blog that is. Nope, I haven’t given up the ghost yet. Truth be told, I’ll probably be over here a lil more often (yeah, I know you’ve heard that one before),but it’s true. I really need my own lil corner of the world to come to and get all of this stuff outta my head without all the noise of facebook.

Facebook is like cyberspace hell. You wake up one day and say to yourself “how da heck did I end up in this hole?” It’s like being in a virtual high school setting, but this time it’s crazy adults instead of hormonal kids all up in your space with the lies and deception.

They can have it. I need a place to write where trolls and all of that pretense don’t reside.

The blogging world is pretty empty though. Most of the blogs I used to read are  no longer active. I can see why. It’s hard trying to figure out what to blog about.

I’m gonna follow Glenn’s lead on that and blog as if I’m having a conversation with some friends while hanging out on the porch.  At least that way  it won’t begin to feel like a chore.

I’ll be blogging pretty much whatever comes to mind.

The good, the bad and the ugly.

I’ve missed being over here…in my own little corner, in my own little chair. I don’t know if I have any readers left, but I’ll be blogging anyway. I’ve been so busy lately that I feel as if I need to reset my life back to factory standards.  This is a good place to start.

Feels like home over here.

Home Sweet Home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday Madness…Crutches?!

crutches

Yeah, I’m walking around on crutches right now…sigh. This is definitely old people problems because I don’t think I would have had to get crutches if my ligaments were in their younger days.

How’d it happen? Cleaning up.Standing on one leg while on a chair. When I brought the leg down I missed the chair and jarred it on a cement petition. I actually felt the pain shoot up my leg. So now I’m out-of-commission…sorta. I’m supposed to be on bed rest, but there was no way I was missing Wicked on Tour. I managed to hobble around the theatre on one crutch…which I actually prefer. I’m gonna end up with a leg cast fooling around with both crutches. And I’m getting really creating when it comes to hiding the splint. Can’t wait to be off of these things though.

Grandbaby Creole(GBC) …I just blog named her 🙂 decided to show out for her birthday and took her first steps in front of everyone. It was awesome!

My 86-year-old dad was in his glory watching his great-granddaughter walk.

My kids just about grew up on this blog. Yellow Jacket was 13 when I began blogging and she’ll be 22 next month. I’m still trying to figure out where the time went.

I guess I’ll have some time to catch up on all of my blogging now…since I’m laid up for a minute. That’s a good thing because I miss blogging. Facebook saps all of the creative energy out of me because it’s so quick. With Facebook,Instagram and Twitter around,blogging has become the dinosaur of social media. I still like it though because it’s my space to get whatever I want to out of my head without having to deal with all of those “judgy-wudgies” on those other sites.

And I miss you guys. I don’t know if I’ll ever stop…I may slow up a bit, but I’m gonna hang around as long as possible. Besides, the grandbaby will give me all sorts of new  stuff to blog about.

So, let’s catch up! I have so much to cover!
