Letting the good times roll

By Elisa | 2 Comments »

I am from Louisiana, so Mardi Gras is a big deal for me. I get a king cake (often from my awesome friends who have brought me one back for the past 2 years!), wear purple, green and gold and generally am annoying about it.

Today was no exception. I had a few meetings, so I needed to be respectable, but still with a little Mardi Gras flair. Purple tights, gold shoes and a green cardigan did the trick to get me to and from my meeting and to Bayou Deli for a (wonderful) crawfish po’bo y and seafood gumbo.

I got rained on and had to ride on a friends lap with my bike in the back of a compact car home, but it was all worth it. Tonight Bici has a “float” in the Birmingham Mardi Gras Parade, 1st one since 1909. I have on my purple tights and crazy green socks. Let’s do this thing, rain or shine!

Laissez bon temps rouler!
