I thought in the spirit of Mardi Gras, I would republish.
Happy Mardi Gras, y'all! You can click here for some really good recipes to get you in the spirit!
Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by my friend, Susan of A Southern Daydreamer.
We celebrated Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, tonight at Patton Creek in Hoover. We stopped by the Cajun Steamer first, where they gave us all jester hats and out first of many beads. Then we scouted out a good spot on the parade route and parked it waiting for the parade to begin.
It didn't take long......
The red guy is a "Lobster" on behalf of Cajun Steamer, who was throwing beads to the crowd.
(Hands up) "Throw me sum beads, Mista!"
The kids walked away loaded down with beads. I was not only carrying my camera, but an armful of candy, moon pies, business coupons and 2 t-shirts-all caught prizes that were thrown to the crowd.
Can you guess what prize J. Smooth liked best? All he wanted was chocolate.
Thankyou for taking the time to stop by Takes from Bloggeritaville!
I hope you will join us tomorrow for Thrifty Thursday, whether you link up or party hop, you're invited!
HAPPY MARDI GRAS, Y'all!
