Not much happened this past weekend as I was still in Mardi Gras recovery mode and I don't have a mushy Valentine's story to recap so instead you will get a recap of my fabulous Mardi Gras lunch two Fridays ago. My fabulous friend Courtney always is a great organizer of events and this one was no exception. You may recall she organized a Jingle Bell lunch over Christmas as well. It had fabulous head pieces as well.
We Ladies of Misrule got together at Tableau for a very late lunch. It was a smattering of Delta Gammas and friends of them. I brought my friend Jen who was experiencing her first Mardi Gras. I thought she would love to have a fancy day in the French Quarter and I was not wrong! I met some new friends as well. And the food was delightful. It was so nice to see so many people in festive dress and moods!
