Fat Tuesday

Despite what you may think after reading the title of today's post, this is not another round of the Blogger Butt Smackdown! I just want to wish you all a HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!

I thought it would be fun to have a little impromptu party at Casa de Envy to celebrate. The first thing you need to do is find a mask.

Next, you need to round up some mardi gras beads....flashing is discouraged. HEY! Don't fuss at me! It's my party, and I'm allowed to make up the rules!!!

Now that you are wearing your mask and beads, grab your favorite beverage. Make sure it goes well with a nice slice of King Cake!! Or not.... Just make sure you have a drink in your hand, because I'd like to propose a toast:
CHEERS to you my friends! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Let me know if you will need to spend the night......these parties can go REALLY late.

What???????
I can't flash?!!
Hang on.......
I only saw Mardi Gras and wipped 'em out.


Now I have to rewrap and tuck and tape everything back in place.
This is going to take awhile......
Go ahead and start without me......

Ahhh, I love Mardi Gras! I want some King Cake of my own! I get to go to New Orleans, one of my favorite cities, in about 6 weeks and I can't WAIT!!! I will have a Hurricane just for you, my friend. ;) Or two. Or possibly four. Just sayin'.

Great par-tay! :)

HA! Thanks for inviting me to your party! I just had a mammo today, so I think I'll keep my smashed, bruised and swollen breast to myself! But maybe I will crash on your couch...if it's ok with CB & Snow White!
