Snapshots of Mardi Gras 2012

As soon as we got in my first stop was to pick up a fried shrimp po'boy sandwhich!

Friday night, I got all dressed up and joined my cousins for the annual Zulu Coronation Ball. It was a night of elegant ball gowns and tuxedos, delicious food and on time drinks. We danced until 4am.


Saturday we slept!!!

Sunday, we went to a Mardi Gras church service and enjoyed King Cake and that good ole' church punch right after service.

Sunday night we caught some night parades and ended the evening with some fresh beignets from Cafe Du Monde!

Monday, we enjoyed all the beautiful parades that took part in Lundi Gras! We came home with three big bags of beads and throws.

Tueday, Mardi Gras Day, we had a ball. We caught the Zulu, REX and the truck parades.

We ran into some Indians and even did a little dancing in the streets.

Overall we had an amazing time and I know the boys will never forget their special time in New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2012.

I have videos I will try to load soon.

Until next time..


This weekend I am going to another Mardi Gras party held by The Men of Omega Psi Phi here in the city.
I will post pictures next week!
