"Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!"

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! That's our theme and boy is it true!

Here is a peak of our floats for the parade this year. My friend S took the pictures for me at float loading (where all the members come together and have a party while loading their beads and trickets on the floats.) I leave NYC for the South tomorrow and I CAN'T wait! My Mom is picking me up at the airport tomorrow night and the fun begins for a great weekend! Friday evening is our parade. We start the day off at one of our favorite restaurants in town and then we head to a local bar for drinks with our Moms. We gather at the Civic Center after that for some "pre-gaming." All the ladies (all ages from 21 ++++) get fired up and we get on our floats and ride around town. After the parade we have a huge ball with lots of great seafood, drinks and wonderful bands. Did I mention how much fun it is? Mardis Gras is one of my most favorite times of the entire year and it has been very tough for me to not be there so far. I have been counting down the days until I get to go home for all of the fun. Not too much longer now...


This is my Mom's float-Girls Night Out

that sounds so fun that it is a mom/daughter/ladies thing. Most of the mardi gras I'm exposed to is mostly the men in charge. Most of the time we make it to a ball too.
