I got a shoe!!!

Last night was Muses, a woman’s only krewe (sort of like the one I rode in last year but fancier and the original woman’s only krewe and probably no one would like me comparing the two, but, you know, it is what it is.) Oliver and Linus came with me and we met up with a bunch of friends on the route.

Some random pics…

 

I made a sign ahead of time – just in case I saw the Muse who was at the My Favorite Murder show last month.

And it worked!!! I saw her and got this beautiful shoe!

If you’re wondering what’s the deal with the shoe, read this post I wrote last year: Mardi Gras – what does it all mean?

My friend Jenn works for the founder of Muses, so after the parade, once the kids were tucked in bed, we headed back out and went to the Muses after-party. So fun! Open bar (I only indulged in a couple few, I swear) and food from Jacque-Imos and music by Sheila E and lots of fun people-watching. Didn’t get home until 2am! What a rock star.

 

 

My Favorite (podcast about) Murder

I have to post about this because Friday night was the most fun night ever!

Stephanie and I went to a live show at the Orpheum of our favorite podcast, My Favorite Murder. If you like true crime (I mean, I guess I must) and cursing and laughing, you should definitely listen. If you don’t like all three of those things, maybe stick to This American Life.

Back in October, tickets went on sale. I was in London at the time and just finishing up a meeting when the time came for sales to start. I tried and tried and tried and just could not get tickets. Meanwhile, back in the States, Stephanie was also trying. Thank goodness she was able to get a pair for us. Not just any pair – second row, VIP!

VIP meant we’d get a few goodies but best of all, we’d get to meet the hosts, Karen and Georgia after the show! Eeek! For months, Steph and I planned what we were going to wear (I’d make shirts for sure, but what would they say?!?) and what we’d give them. (People often give them a little gift at the meet and greet.) Read More
