"It's Carnival Time!!!"

The time has come upon us quite quickly this year! But yes, it is Mardi Gras season already! Mardi Gras day is actually this Tuesday.

It has been yucky weather here in NOLA the past week. However, it is suppose to be beautiful tomorrow for my favorite parade, Endymion! We are very thankful that the sun will be shining on us tomorrow. We need a sunny day.

We have our spot on the route with our port-a-lets ready to go. We have our Central Grocery Muffalettas, Randazzo's King Cake and New Orleans Original Daiquiris all ready to be packed in the morning when we head out to Orleans Ave.! Stephanie, Scott and I "camped out" tonight for our shift to save our spot. It was really, really COLD and damp! It just goes right through you. At least we know to dress appropriately for tomorrow night.

I'm looking forward to a fun-filled day and hanging out with all of our friends! It'll be a great stress reliever for us all.

Glenn and Tammy will be driving in tomorrow and will hopefully make it out to the parade when they get in town. We'll be ready to see them. It's nice that they are coming in for Mardi Gras again. It's been many years since they have been here during this time of year. I just hope the weather cooperates for them. (It's not looking too good for the rest of the week. But, who knows...the weather people all lie, in my opinion!! ;) ) Plus, we have an exciting week planned for Tammy and Glenn with two baby showers this week! That should be great!

Happy Mardi Gras to all! I'll be posting pictures of Endymion sometime soon! I'll let you know when they are on the site!
