Mardi Gras

I'm sitting at my desk sniffling with a cold that I contracted from having too much fun. I got an invite to go to Mardi Gras from some friends a month or so back and it seemed like a trip I didn't want to miss. I had never been to Louisiana and I haven't taken a lot of trips to new places in the past couple years ... moving to LA was my big trip, but I didn't have much in the way of a break from work. I was overdue for an adventure! I had so much fun! The four days were a jumble of drinks, parades, dancing, live music, dodging & catching beads, good people ... and more drinks. I'm definitely curious about the city when it's not a giant party too, so it's on my list to visit again. 

hugs not drugs ;)
