#62. Go to Mardi Gras parades. This past week I was able to go to one of the many Mardi Gras parades in Mobile. In Mobile Mardi Gras is HUGE, it is a real holiday here. I have had a hard time getting into the whole Mardi Gras thing since it is not a big deal where I grew up. Schools down here are out for an entire week during the week of Fat Tuesday. On Fat Tuesday USA even is out for a Holiday. Doctors offices shut down for the day of Fat Tuesday. But it turns out I think I might actually like this whole Mardi Gras thing. Parades are fun and maybe even next year I can go to a Ball with some friends. Thanks, Meghan, for talking me into standing out of the side of the road for over an hour with you to catch beads and Moon Pies.
#63. Find a new Netflix series. I have decided to watch Gilmore Girls from the beginning. I always watch the reruns when they come on TV so why not start from the beginning and experience the Gilmore Girls story.
#16. Write from the heart letters to all of your people. This week I sat down for a good little bit to write letters to those people who mean the world to me. I am so thankful to have friends that are like family. Hannah, Kaylyn and Emilee, be on the watch for your letters via snail mail this week!
Also this past weekend I was able to go home. I love being able to spend time with my family. Living 5 hours away from home, that doesn’t happen as often as I would like. I couldn’t make it through life without the constant support and encouragement of my family! Next I just need to make it down to see my mom and step-dad! South Florida watch out because I will be on my way as soon as life lets me get there!
