Mardi Gras

Have you ever been to Mardi Gras? Me personally? No, I have not, but I have always wanted to go. I want to see the festivities, the parades just do a YOLO moment.


Would I expose my breasts to get beads? Well, maybe. Course by the time I do go to Mardi Gras, I would be most likely retired, 65 years old and my breasts would be like balloons that have been inflated for a week and are hanging low. The floats might throw beads at me to keep my shirt on by then!


In all honesty, sometimes you do need to step outside the box. Do something you never thought you would do. Mardi Gras in a way is like that. You can go down to New Orleans and step outside of your comfort zone, just live in the moment.

    I’ve never been there for Mardi Gras, but I did get down there a few years ago when they were hosting the Final Four. Love, love LOVE the cuisine. I had lunch at Paul Prudhomme’s restaurant, dinner at Emeril, and dinner at John Besh’s Restaurant August. All were incredibly tasty!

    I can’t imagine what it’s like for the Mardi Gras festivities. My sister lived down there before Katrina, and she said she just wanted to get out of town because it was crazy.
