Happy Fat Tuesday: New Orleans

My husband & I have been big on celebrating Fat Tuesday since going to New Orleans in the spring of 2010. We’re planning on having some friends over for jambalaya tonight & then head out to our local Mardi Gras parade.

So in honor of today’s festivities I thought I’d share some of the photos from our trip!

We did the typical tourist stuff- French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Cafe du Monde…..

but our favorite “discovery” was Mardi Gras World, where we go to see the floats in progress & learned how they make everything on the floats. Definitely a must-see because you get to see all the excitement of the Mardi Gras Parade without any of the drunken craziness!

    Those are great pictures of you in New Orleans. We are serving our guests Jambalaya also! I’m so jealous you have a local parade! My King Cake arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to celebrate!

    I would love to go to New Orleans. I’ve never done anything exciting for Marti Gras but I have always wanted to go to a parade
