Lawd, I can’t believe my son is 25 years old. Where did the time go?
Happy Birthday, Ryan! I love you… to infinity and beyond!
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.
Whew, I made it through another one. I must really be getting old because I don’t have the carnival season stamina that I used to have.
Maybe I was just too tired with school, work, decorating purses and coconuts and everything else.
I had a fabulous season though and my ride this year was EPIC!
I thought we had a large crowd last year (and we did), but this year it was HUUUGGEE! I had the most fun ever!
Most people who ride in carnival krewes say that once you ride on a float, you never want to get back on the ground. I never felt that way. I love being on the ground as much as being up on the float. I love to flex my “bead-catching muscles” and see how many throws I can get my hands on. This year was the first time that I actually loved being on the float, more than I loved being on the ground.
Everything about that day was fabulous…from the pre-party to the end of the ride. The weather was gorgeous! I think it was about 65 degrees when we hit the street. And the crowd was out in full force.
I really am proud that the krewe is doing so well.
Looking forward to many more years of riding with such a great group of women.
February 7,2018… we get to do it again!
- Pardon the errors…I need new glasses..darnit.
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!
My dad and my son. 63 years apart. This is what happens when you ask your grandson to wash your car for you, but you’re a control freak so, you gotta go out there and spray the water. Family…ya gotta love’em.
