Carnival Season has BEGUN!

It's Jan. 6th!

One of the things I love about living in a very close surburb of New Orleans is Mardi Gras! And its not just a one day thing, like it was in NJ when everyone went to South Street in Philly. Here its over a month of celebrating!

We devour tons of King Cakes.

We collect throws at the parades that start weeks before Mardi Gras Day!

We wear purple, gold, and green proudly!

It gets a little wild in the French Quarter..

AND we all get actual Mardi Gras Day off from work and school!

It is a fun, fun time for all. Whether like us, you rather stick to the family style parades in the suburbs or if you want to head into the city to expierence Mardi Gras there, flashing and all, its a fun season here in The Big Easy. It is a time of year like no other here in South Louisiana.

I would give just about anything for a King Cake from Haydel's or Randazzo's right about now. I can almost taste it. Sigh. I'd order one, but I'm trying to behave....
eat some for me!?!?
