This year I joined the Krewe of Eve. It is an all woman's krewe and it was sooooooo much fun. I can't wait until next year to ride again. Unfortunately for most people our original night we were going to ride we got rained out. I was still recovering from the flu so I was relieved when I had 3 more days to get better. I was READY by the time the 3rd day came. We had BEAUTIFUL weather and the route was PACKED. I can't even describe how much fun we had on our float. We are almost all mom's in our 30's, and there is around 45 of us on our float! You can only imagine what fun this group was!! I only have one pic that Ms. Sandy sent me from the actual parade (no I wasn't crazy enough to bring my camera on board... you wouldn't believe how little room we have to stand bc of all the beads and stuffed animals on board!)
Our dinner dance is kind of funny...we wear our costumes which are terrible white sweatsuits. At first I thought this was horrible, but dancing the night away in sweats and tennis shoes wasn't so bad!!! The band was awesome and Brian and I ended up staying until the end. Yet again-- can't wait until next year.
Please no comments about the BEAUTIFUL costumes...our float was Batman!
Emily and I at the beginning of the night.
Brian tried to get a couple of shots of the whole float that was there.

Can't wait for Mardi Gras 2009!!!
