(the season has started!!)
A quick rundown of my trip.....
Wednesday: Sweat Tea and Pecan Crusted Redfish. Then King Cake.
Thursday: Work, gumbo and shrimp po-boy lunch, work. Float loading (my friend was riding in a parade Friday, so I helped load the float with beads, lots of beads!). More sweat tea and King Cake.
Friday: Work work work. My attempt at seeing my first mardi gras parade.....cancelled due to bad weather. Oh, and King Cake.
Saturday: Work, which begins with a "King Cake blind taste test" (3 different king cakes at 9:30am...yum!). Work. All done work! Big Margarita from Daiquiri's. My first Mardi Gras Parade! Beads beads beads (throw me something Mister!!). Of course, more King Cake and Sweat Tea.
Sunday: Airplane hassles (flight cancelled, rebooked, blah blah, get home at midnight). Next year, I'm definately staying longer for more parades!!! (Oh, but I did have a tiny slice of King Cake for dessert once I got home!).
I had a busy (lots of work) but fabulous time!!
