Happy Mardi Gras, y’all!


Everywhere else it’s just Tuesday, but here in NOLA it’s Mardi Gras.


Mardi Gras is finally here, and it’s cold. It is currently 36 degrees and wind chills are in the 20s. After a gorgeous weekend of wearing shorts and short sleeve t-shirts, today will feature layers upon layers. Ugh! Today will be the coldest Mardi Gras since 1989, and there is a 70% chance of rain. Miserable!

J & I will make our decision soon as to whether or not we will brave it to the French Quarter for the festivities. Should I stay like this and watch a BRAVO marathon of the Housewives?


Let’s look back at some of my most popular Mardi Gras posts. Click on each underlined link.
