Beads on Bourbon Street

I got to check something else of my bucket list this week… Mardi Gras in New Orleans! The best part is that I was getting paid to be there, with free hotel & shuttle accommodations… and to top it off, I was in great company.

My honest plan was to stay away from all the mayhem & craziness. I was going to buy dinner, have a beignet, and get some rest… but, my crew had other plans. And I’m so glad I listened to them!

We had a few drinks, ate some food, caught some of the parades, and made our way down the famous Bourbon Street to earn some of those beads! I mean, when in Rome, right? (Sorry, mom & dad)…

Hope your Tuesday was Fat and your drinks were strong (& 3 for 1, like in the Big Easy).
