It’s that time of year again when New Orleans comes alive with Mardi Gras! This year Carnival started on January 6th, but the heaviest partying is still to come and will take place the few days before Fat Tuesday, March 8th.
With a Mardi Gras costume you can bet you’ll be the hit of the party. The more sequins and feathers the better. To make your party one to remember decorate in Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold.
Us everyday folk aren’t the only jesters to partake in a little Mardi Gras fun, even the Hollywood celebrities love Carnival!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Tonight is the night for romantic dinners, flowers, cards and for some of you lovely ladies…possibly a wedding proposal?! However, just because today is known as the “Lover’s Holiday”, doesn’t mean you have to be in a relationship to celebrate and enjoy Valentine’s Day.
Who says you have to have a significant other to have fun today! The holiday is supposed to be about spending time with someone you love, someone that means a lot to you. That can be your best friend or neighbor or even your grandma or grandpa!
Children even celebrate the holiday by making cards that say, “be my Valentine” and give them out to all their classmates and friends during their annual Valentine’s Day party at school. We spent the weekend making Valentine’s Day boxes out of old shoe boxes and aluminum foil. I’m beginning to think kids enjoy getting ready for the holiday a lot more than adults do!
So this year for Valentine’s Day, show that special someone how much they mean to you. Take them out to dinner, pick them a bouquet of flowers or just stop by their house and let them know you’re thinking of them. Show that special person in your life how much you love them!
