My Happy List is all about Mardi Gras today. Our sweet friends in New Orleans rented an apartment on St. Charles Avenue and invited us to spend the weekend in it. I was so touched by their kindness because this is the first time in Mr. Art @ Home's life that he hasn't had a place to go home to in New Orleans *sadface*
We had a great time visiting with friends and seeing all the babies that are growing up so fast, from elementary-aged kids all the way up to college-aged kids. :D
We ate in great restaurants, watched parades, went to parties, and shopped. :D I wish I'd taken more photos, but here are a few to share with y'all:
Mr. Art @ Home, Shelley and I on St. Charles Avenue during the Krewe of Hermes parade
We bought king cake donuts for the kids Saturday morning.
I think they're really cute!
Sunday brunch at The Camellia Grill uptown
Shelley shopped at her favorite store, LF
Shelley's outfit she bought from LF
(Monday morning's outfit)
Sorry for the poor photo quality, but it was so dark outside!
I discovered the most delicious flavored coffee ever @ Rouses: Louisiana Cane Sugar coffee that "tastes like a birthday cake snowball." It's soooooo yummy!
Please post, link-up, and share your happy!
Until next time...
