I should have known you'd be thinking of Mardi Gra! It always make me think of the 8th grade dance I helped plan w/ a few classmates. It was Mardi Gra theme. I'd love to go one day! Hope you are having a good week!
Just the mention of 8th grade dance brought back a lot of memories, HA! Growing up in California I really didn't have exposure to Mardi Gras. It wasn't until I got married and moved to Louisiana. I was blown away the first year. What I found most interesting was how many locals took their vacays during this season and how the children had time off from school. The entire city becomes like one smallcrowded sardine can of tourists. Just getting to the market to buy milk can be an event, Ha.
I hope you had a wonderful Mardi Gras
