HAPPY MARDI GRAS EVERYONE!
Let the good times roll. My birthday is March 1st. Hubby and I had planned on going to New Orleans 2006 to ring in Fat Tuesday and my birthday all in one. Then that horrendous bitch Katrina entered the picture... sigh. So, in honor of Mardi Gras, this evening I will be preparing shrimp etoufee, muffalettas, and of course, a King Cake and PLENTY of cocktails (don't worry-- BabyGirl will be at my parents and Hubby and I took Weds off.) Granted, I won't be able to earn my Mardi Gras beads as I did once before (hey! I was single at the time!)... and yes... I easily went home with 100s of necklaces. But I am one curvy chick... they were waaaay easy to earn. But since I can't get any beads this yr (unless Hubby wants to toss me some lovely baubles & trinkets) check out this fabulous idea. Happy Mardi Gras everyone, may God comfort and bless the people of New Orleans in 2006 with better fortune, and Laissez les bon temps rouler!
