So it has been 21 days since my last post... yikes. Of course I finally get back on with blogging and then I drop off the face of the earth. Sorry, y'all. I do sincerely appreciate the encouragement from my friends- blogger friends and real-life ones. I am so thankful for all of you!
I wanted to post a quick recap of the Mardi Gras season. I am a Louisiana girl at heart and I think Mardi Gras is officially my favorite holiday. I had to bring the festive spirit to DC, of course.
My festive MG wreath. I also added this sweet kitchen towel to my growing collection for the holiday.
I baked these great cupcakes for one of my classes & folks at work: plain yellow cake (dyed MG colors) with homemade cinnamon frosting. That frosting is fan-tastic!
I went to New Orleans over the past weekend to celebrate Mardi Gras. The trip was wonderful, I had a great time and I got to spend some long-overdue bonding time with some old friends. I'm so glad I got to have that break. I went to a Mardi Gras ball as a guest of my dear friend Kathryn. It was, indeed, a ball!
Please note the light-up partycup. Crucial. Also, the ball was held in the Super Dome. Pardon my French, but it just doesn't get any more badass than that.
Lastly, I had to include this pic of my friend Meghan that she insisted someone take... then insisted on sending to me... of herself. All while I was standing in the same room. It is Mardi Gras, okay, people? Alcohol and fun are must-haves.
Also, she caught those glasses off a float. Amazing, amirite?
I am already impatiently awaiting next year's Mardi Gras season!
