no no not that kind of fat; fat tuesday or mardi gras. ya’ll know this is my favorite holiday of the year. i truly love it more than xmas or thanksgiving. i’ve talked about it here.  now i won’t bore you with the history again only to say that mobile did it first and in my opinion does it best. but i have posted a few pictures so you can see how much fun we had.

so this past weekend we  loaded up the car (and even took the dog since she hasn’t experienced mardi gras yet)and headed south where the beads flew through the air, laughter was heard all weekend long and yes i got my groove on to the marching bands.

now i love a king cake but not the work so  i’ll be whipping up these king cake cupcakes today that i found here and celebrating what really matters; the return of the moonpie.
