This picture just happens to capture both things I love!
Celebrations of Jessica's life will be Friday. I can't wait to get together with everyone! Chris probably will not be in town early enough for dinner though.
As for the SAINTS: I was reading an article in the Shreveport Times by the Associated Press earlier this morning. Only in Louisiana:
As the Saints prepared to open the defense of their Super Bowl title, the city was in Mardi Gras mode: schools set to close early and concerts and a parade planned in the French Quarter. Even City Hall closed for the day.
Each group also had a tall, skinny black-and-gold tent holding a portable toilet. "We pioneered that," said Danny Trent of Reserve. "Look inside." The 5-gallon black bucket was still empty. Except for a Vikings decal."
And how yummy does this look- Pork bombs! This is apparently a tailgating neccessity in New Orleans today. It is pork, jalapenos and cheese wrapped in bacon and grilled! YUM! Definitely adding this to my "to cook" list!
