Every year for Carnival time we make a new suit.
Red, yellow green...purple or blue
We make a new suit.
Each year different Mardi Gras Indian tribes spend lots of time and money sewing elaborate suits with matching headdresses. It is TRULY a sight to behold the beauty which they have meticulously created over the year. For artists like us, the dedication is completely understandable. In my almost 40 years, I've only missed Mardi Gras during our time away due to Katrina or when I've had a young baby...and I have the gazillion pictures to prove it! It really becomes redundant to create SEVENTY FIVE pages each Fat Tuesday so I've decided to make a mini album each year instead. I haven't scrapped last Mardi Gras' pictures yet but I HAVE made the 2011 book...BEHOLD!!!!
While the hubbs and I were posing, it started raining so I threw this STUPID poncho on...WHY when my hair is natural??? I didn't have a mirror so I took a picture to check my hair...a FREAKIN' MESS!!!! (Note to self: natural hair don't melt, Mama!!! Next time, step AWAY FROM THE PONCHO!!!)
