Happy Mardi Gras !!! .....Or in Our Case.....

....I think it should be Happy Cardi Gras !!!

Many eons ago, fresh out of college, I spent almost a year living in New Orleans, La. In that short time, the city wormed its way into my heart like no other. It has a very unique feel. It is one of this country's must-see cities in my opinion. And it can throw a party like no one's business! I've been to three Mardi Gras, and I can't remember a single one! No, just kidding! But they are a blast. Between the parades and their incredible floats, all the fun bling you get to catch, and then the bar crawl on Bourbon Street, there's no worry about about observing Lent, because you aren't going to want to eat or drink for a month afterwards anyway!
If you ever get the chance, be sure to give New Orleans a few days of your time. It doesn't have to be during Mardi Gras as the city has so much more to offer. Beautiful architecture, amazing food, and very friendly people, it's all there.

Now.....back to the festivities of the day.....


And when you wake up the next morning, your vision will feel like this!

  3. Great post! The guys are so handsome!

  4. Love New Orleans! We've been there many times, but never during Mardi Gras. We did go over New Year's once, which was already quite wild. Can't even imagine Fat Tuesday...

  5. Enjoy the party boys! You both look fabulous.

  6. Love the boys decked out for Mardi Gras! We've never been to New Orleans, but would love to go sometime, especially for the music and food.

  7. Ooo. I grew up south of New Orleans. Can't go back. I'd have to be drunk to enjoy Mardi Gras at this point. Like Orlando, it's a great place to visit in the spring ...

  8. OMD... Cardi Gras! I love it. :)

  9. I loved NOLA when I was there in September, what a city!

  10. Those pics are a riot! I've never been to NOLA. It's definitely on the list!
