Next, I become frantic trying to plan for how I will get organized on the float. What will our float be like? Will there be enough hooks to hang everything? What if they put my beads in the wrong place? Will we even have enough space to stand? Ahhh!! Not one of those things can I answer, so I need to stop worrying, right! You'd think I'd let these things go five years after my rookie ride, but I still freak out over them!
As the parade gets closer, we do learn more of the details which makes me feel a bit more relaxed. For instance, the pre and post party will be held at the new Mardi Gras World! How awesome is that! Our boas, gloves, and sequin fanny packs will all be delivered by the end of the day, so that's one less thing to worry about. Also, we have selected our riding beverage of choice. I am riding with seven lovely ladies, including myself and we have decided that accompanying our main course of Popeye's chicken will be Francis Coppola's Sophia sparkling wine. It comes in it's own red aluminum cans and little pink straws which matched our costume. How bout that!

Next week, I thought I'd share with you picture's of our signature throws (beads and trinkets) and also disclose my position on our float just in case any of you happen to be watching as we ride by!
