Its Fat Tuesday! I plan on indulging in some fried chicken strips and cupcakes today! I live life on the edge...
When Kale and I were down in New Orleans this past May we kept talking about how awesome it would be to be here during Mardi Gras! Since we aren't there, I thought I would look back on our photos and remember the fun times we had there!!
Our trip was for his brother's memorial service- we flew into New Orleans, stayed overnight, drove to Lafayette for 5 nights, drove back and stayed in New Orleans for another night then flew out the next morning. So we only spent 2 days in New Orleans so we decided to live it up those 2 days!
I told Kale that I would take care of the hotel situation and decided to surprise him with staying at the Harrah's hotel so that Kale could be close to the casino. I had told Kale previous to arriving that I didn't know if we would have time to go to the casino a lot because we have so many other things to do- he was bummed...but little did he know! When we finally arrived, he was like a little kid on Christmas- too cute!
We couldn't go to New Orleans and not go to Bourbon Street! We also couldn't pass up getting some beads- UK beads to be specific!!
