Mardi Gras Subway Art.

I replaced my Valentine Subway art with this Mardi Gras Subway art!!!

We moved to New Orleans during the heart of Mardi Gras in the middle of my 8th grade year. I spent all of my High School days exploring New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, Baton Rouge, the Gulf coast of Mississippi and Alabama... I loved living in New Orleans. I miss it, a lot! I miss my dear friends and all the city has to offer.
Daniel and I got engaged right next to Lake Pontchartrain on May 5, 2005. I haven't been back since Hurricane Katrina ripped through my beloved city. I am planning on making my way back for my 10 year High School reunion next year!

One of my FAVORITE things about NOLA is MARDI GRAS!!! Such a fun time and such a fun experience. I would die to go back sometime in the near future (during MG)... I'd love to dress up my kids and perch them up top a ladder with a big sign that reads "THROW ME SOMETHING, MISTER!" It makes me giddy just thinking about it.

For the past few years i have honored MG by throwing a party with a few friends and their families. We wear masks and beads... we eat and enjoy some legendary king cake.

Anyway, this subway art is a little tribute to all my fellow New Orlean-ians or anyone else who decides to celebrate Mardi Gras! Enjoy.

Thanks so much for making this. I am across the lake in Mandeville and this will be prefect for my MG decorations.
