I'm a day late but yesterday was the Twelfth Night which marks the official start of Mardi Gras. "Fat Tuesday" is February 17, 2015! Parades, balls, King Cakes etc. Great time for those that celebrate it!

Honey I don't even take part Lol. Only in the food part that's it. I'm one hour away from New Orleans and Mardi Gras is done here but not on their level

That must have been a long time ago. They no longer put the babies in the cakes. Too many people swallowed them
