The Pink Ladies of Fat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday! Have you ever seen a group of cuter Mardi Gras supporters? Here are a few tips to insure a good time.
Mardi Gras 009
Have a parade with several cute floats.
Mardi Gras 007
Pick a position on the sidewalk within the midst of a  fun crowd.
Mardi Gras 022
For safety have a secret service presidential posse.
Mardi Gras 025
This will insure that you’re not eaten by any land sharks.
 Mardi Gras 008 Be a good sport when you’re nominated for Mardi Gras Queen.
Mardi Gras 011
My friend J and I will be riding a parade float TONIGHT at the Westgate Mardi Gras Festivities. Yep, the Duchess of Decor could soon become Queen. If you’re local, come on out. It should be fun watching me make a fool of myself.

Laissez le bon temps rouler!
