(pre)Mardi Gras

So to get in the mood for

MaRdI GrAs

I thought I would decorate my place. You wouldn't think it would be that hard to find stuff, but I guess Mardi Gras isn't a big deal in Utah, my home-teachers didn't even know what it was.

This is the King Cake I made from SCRATCH.- I'm thinking Culinary Arts school after I graduate.

Once I explained what the holiday Mardi Gras is for they asked, so are you Catholic? haha. I think if you are going to celebrate the funness of Mardi Gras then you should celebrate Lent and give something up for 40 days. Last year I gave up Mt. Dew and every time I grab one I never understand why I liked it in the first place and so I end up never drinking it. So in a way I am healthier because of Lent. I haven't decided what I am going to give up this year, I still have 11 hours- any suggestions? Included are some pics. Tonight is the real party at Kelly's.

that cake looks great! Is there a baby inside? You always knew how to celebrate Mardis Gras in style.

You should give up reading large novels. Or yoir shark show.
