Happy Mardi Gras everyone!!
I don't know if I've ever mentioned it, but I'm from the Deep South and grew up in the New Orleans area. So, even though I'm in Beantown now, I think today should be a holiday! Mardi gras is best spent with friend, family, a good drink, and lots of good food! Combine all that with a lawn chair on a parade route, and WOW, what a great time you can have!!
But alas, in New England today is just another day. Fortunately my in-laws surprised my husband and I was a surprise delivery of a King Cake from Diane Randazzo's bakery which is located in my hometown!! Combined with a cup (or two, but who's counting?) of my New Orleans blend coffee and chickory, I'm a happy girl. Really stuffed from eating WAY too much King Cake, but happy :)
it is timely I guess that I debut my completed LSU colored snuggle blanket for my cousin's baby shower. We now know this baby will be a girl, so I'm thinking of making a cute bonnet and/or booties in the purple and gold also. She will be decked out on gamedays!!
As, a special note for Abby, thank you for the new obsession. I'm on page 599, I want a tattoo of my own design inspired by Phedre's marque, and I 'in love' with Joscelin, in a way that I have not appreciated pale skin and pure blondie hair since......hmmm................
