Happy Fat Tuesday!

We had an AMAZING trip home for Mardi Gras! It was so much fun to be with my family and friends. I was able to meet one of my best friends new baby boys. However, I did have to wait a few days because Baby J got a fever virus and ran 103-104 for a couple of days. He's all better now, but we couldnt' be around any kids until he was better. I ate lots of kingcakes and I LOVE the new moonpie flavors of mint and peanut butter. They are SO GOOD! They taste like Girl Scout cookies. My parade was a blast and J enjoyed trying his 1st moonpie, meeting new friends and catching beads. A was unable to make it because of the snow in NYC (and in the South) so that was sad.

We bought J his first pair of "real" shoes. More details to come later. Thank you for all of your suggestions.

What did y'all do to celebrate Valentine's Day? A surprised me at LGA on Sunday. In NYC most people do not meet you at the airport because they don't have cars and it is easier to just hire a car or get a cab. It was so sweet of him to be there the minute we walked off the plane! He then presented me with Valentines Day cards and let me know that he arranged for a babysitter and dinner for Monday night! We went to Market Table and it was FABULOUS! 

Hope y'all are having a Happy Fat Tuesday! Eat some king cake, drink a hurricane and INDULGE in whatever you like!
