Mardi Gras Break

I'm halfway through a 5 day weekend right now, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Spring break may be really late this year (the end of April... three weeks before the end of the school year, in fact), but Mardi Gras break is happening right now. And thank God for it!

We celebrated with a bunch of coworkers/friends on Saturday with a party that began at 10:00 AM. I haven't had a day like that in a long, long time, but it was much needed. 

At noon, we shifted down the street for the Spanish Town parade, which was my first since being down here. That's actually kinda crazy because there are parades here all the time, but this was the first one I was committed to attend. I had a great time catching all the beads and other trinkets and dancing in the streets.

After the parade, the party continued back at Abbey's house until about 5:00 when everyone decided to go their separate ways for nap time. Joel was very adamant that we did not need a break, but he conceded when he realized it wouldn't be much of a party by himself. After a few hours of rest, we reconvened and hit our favorite bar for some dancing.

It's storming all day today and tomorrow, so I'm not really anxious to head to NOLA for more festivities, but Joel is trying really hard to convince me. Either way, I'm definitely enjoying this break from school.
