I am asking people who have attended Mardi Gras whether they think it is family friendly or not and why? I’m also asking those who have not attended if they think it is or not and why? I bring my kids to the French Quarter (just not Bourbon Street) all the time and they love […]
Here is a little glimpse of a small parade and Family Gras. The funniest things is the girls couldn’t wait for Jesse McCartney to perform and then they did not believe it was him!
Skydiving, rock climbing, climbing to the top of the Swiss Alps, skiing down a black diamond were all exciting, but were not comparable to the 3 hours I rode in the Krewe of Eve last night. Though I continue to preach to people that they must experience Mardi Gras at least once in their life, […]
This is the getting ready portion of the parade. Enjoy.
Friday the 13th is whenthe Krewe of Eve (women’s parade) rolls in Mandeville. This is my first time riding and I’m so excited. I have so much to learn, but Yoda Debbi (she invited me in) is teaching me the ropes. The best tricks she taught me is how to save money. Since I was […]
I have to shout out to the world today that I am excited to be 40! No regrets from the past, just glad I’m not 20 or 30 again! No botox, no boob job, no tummy tuck, (some nose work 16 years ago -I confess) and whatever nature throws me from here on in, I […]
I dug around for info on the Metairie St Patty’s Day parade info and there wasn’t much out there but the starting time- noon. It wasn’t even mentioned on the front page of the Jefferson Parish website – WTH??? Anyhoo, I’ll be hanging out at the beginning of the parade so I can get home […]
First off, thanks for being so patient. The past few days, KMG was experiencing some technical difficulties! YAY – they are all fixed now! I wish I could just walk around and pair up great people looking for love (no aspirations for a dating service – don’t worry). Besides, statistically, most people will meet on […]
“I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.” ~Author Unknown~ Recently, I was at Walgreen’s picking up a prescription. My daughter was busy waving at the security screen in front of us, because, hey, she could be Hannah Montana for 5 seconds in her […]
If nothing else – you gotta give me an A++ for the title of this post. When Super Tuesday collides with Fat Tuesday, even this political nut puts politics in the backseat. Besides, Louisiana has as much control over the outcome of Super Tuesday as I did by yelling at the Patriots during Superbowl Sunday […]
These specific lessons were learned YESTERDAY. It is 8 AM as I am starting to write this post and I will hear or pay for the mistakes I made all day (fer sure). Feel no pity for The Princess of Positive, but laugh “with” her and “for” her as it hurts to laugh (and yes, […]
You’ve caught them…now what? If you are riding next year, you may want get them organized to throw. Last night I offered my kids 25 cents for every dozen they culled for next year (stapled with paper). If that ain’t your M.O. – they will be collecting dust in your attic or garage (you know […]
I never did the sorority thing, but as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I realize that other women can truly compliment your life. I hang with my on-line girls every day, called the Cotillion. We are the best and brightest bloggers in the blogosphere and it is invite only. We have quite a blogroll and […]
Dang, somehow by not growing up here, I missed the class in “Parade Strategizing 101.” My best edumacated guess right now is that you want to get somewhere not so crowded so your kids can get a good spot to catch stuff! Then again, you need them front and center to make “eye contact” with […]
Well, not exactly, but I liked the title and I’m sticking with it! We attended the Krewe of Eve (the women’s parade) parade in Mandeville last night. How many “throws” can one family accumulate over a month? Well, a ton, and very little of it is edible (like a fruitcake). We brought two rolling suitcases […]
