Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.
Happy Valentine's Day! But more importantly, Happy Mardi Gras Weekend! They fall on the same day this year, so I started the day wearing red, with heart earrings and heart socks. Tonight, I will swap to purple, green, and gold for our annual Mardi Gras party! If you want to celebrate, too, check out my tips and recipes (you've got until Tuesday, Mardi Gras Day).
So, in honor of our favorite holiday, here are a few pics from the real Mardi Gras, back in the 80's when we lived in New Orleans:
|Balcony in the French Quarter on Mardi Gras Day|
|Awesome clown costume in the Quarter|
|A float moving down Canal Street|
|My mom and I in front of a float waiting on a side street for its parade|
|Me & my husband and my mom and her husband on Mardi Gras Day (1988?)|
Hope you have a great weekend, and a Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Mardi Gras!
