How then can I not be ALL ABOUT any day of the week that is called FAT TUESDAY???? The one day of a year when decadence is celebrated, eating and drinking too much is encouraged..... if you could add a nice long nap into the equation it would be just about the perfect day! The theme of Mardi Gras might be "laissez les bon temps roulez" (let the good times roll), but the theme of Fat Tuesday must certainly be "belly up to the trough and stuff yo' face!". Or something like it!
In the mail yesterday was an invitation for the civil union of friends who live in New Jersey.
Check it out! Every little element was hand made----- all of the little flowers and beads and rhinestones..... all handplaced. Pretty cute! I don't care what we're talking about, homemade is best!
I understand the religious heritage of Fat Tuesday, and although my faith background does not include the fasting between Ash Wednesday and Easter it certainly does make sense. I'll be celebrating the day anyway, in my own fashion.
Some FT Highlights:
- Krispy Kreme doughnuts (just because)
- Maple French Toast Latte from QuikTrip (a super sized cup for less than $1.50, woo hoo)
- Tater Tots (because I sadly dream of them)
- Philly Cheesesteak
I'm declaring Fat Super Tuesday! Now that I can get behind (and unless I get back to the gym I have more behind to get behind with!)
I only hope that I won't get crumbs on my yarn......
