About Me

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Lundi Gras Kicks Festivals into High Gear !!!

What ELSE could I have crammed into this overflowing weekend ? Well, on Sunday, Oscar and Bacchus went head-to-head, but thanks to VCRs, DVRs or whatever acronym you hold dear, I could have my parade and starlets, too.

I have to say that after our venture on St. Charles Ave. last nite, that its probably the ONLY place on Earth that allows PRIVATE PORT-O-LETS on neutral grounds !! I passed by hundreds of these port-o-potty's with LOCKS ON THEM. They all had "PRIVATE" signs on the doors above the locks. Some Entrepreneur even thought of charging $1 to use it. Said it was for CHARITY. Some people even charged you to let you park in their yard !! Others put garbage cans on public streets to 'save a spot' for friends and family. LOL ONLY in New Orleans.

. . . . . . .

Today is Lundi Gras !!

Fat Monday is getting as wild as Fat Tuesday in the Greater New Orleans area with parades, music and revelry starting at 10 a.m. and stretching on into the night.

Happy Lundi Gras :)
