So I totally spaced that yesterday was Mardi Gras.
It took receiving this photo from a friend who just so happens to live in New Orleans to remind me.
The text included this pic
and the words
Love her, friend for life!
PS. I just ordered this entire outfit and plan on wearing it to my Bachelorette.
All are invited!
Lucky for us, M chose one of our favorite places for dinner, which also
Just so happens to be a cute little Louisiana Bistro!
The servers all had fun masks on, and each table had decorations!
Just up our alley I tell ya.
Here is a collage of our evening!
What's date night without booze?
The drinks change depending on which Bartender is working,
Something all bars should do I think.
All I remember was the top one is a Cajun Vodka take on the Martini,
the bottom is a cucumber/min/champs.
OUR super fab street also had a parade.
Have I mentioned how much I love my street lately?
CUZ I do!
Which rhymes with Boo.
Lastly, whilst at dinner,
M and I had a chat about "our future".
Backstory: I am terrible at yard work,
I am also terrible at painting.
And changing lightbulbs.
I don't do spiders or bugs of any kind.
And I have no clue how to do anything remotely related to fixing a home.
I've always rented and taken full advantage of the MX (maintenance) staff.
For example we had a light bulb out the other day;
And instead of climbing my happy ass up to the light
I called the office and Carter (MX guy) came and changed it for me.
Work SMARTER not harder friends.
So I knew it would behoove me to marry someone who can do the things I'm terrible at.
I'm no fool.
Except M isn't really good at any of that stuff either.
I mean he kills bugs and can change a light bulb.
But he hates yard work, and has the maintenance background of a cat.
SO when the talk came up about staying where we are, or looking into a house.
We both said stay where we are.
Then M said
"But we'll eventually end up back in a condo, so in the meantime I think I want a house"
DO you think its kosher to higher landscapers before you even start looking for a house?
Are handymen expensive?
I mean I'd let any of the men on Built into my home and let them go wild.
Have a great day!
