TDG: Happy Fat Tuesday!

It’s the first day of Mardi Gras! I’ve never been to Mardi Gras, and I’m probably a bit long in the tooth to enjoy it nowadays, but I thought you might like some pretty Mardi Gras themed pictures.

I have no celebrations planned tonight. In fact, I completely forgot about Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday.

I am having a school board meeting at my house regarding a budget. I guess I could provide wine.

My life is so exciting and awesome, I know, please contain yourself.


I am celebrating! Not sure what I’m doing just yet. Something a little more tame than the days of yore, though.

I am indeed giving something up. Believe it or not I’ll be writing a post about Lent for later today! (Not trying to pimp my own writing or anything, just saying there will be more details later) I usually give up two things: a superficial one and a deeper one. Superficial one = chocolate and deeper one = kinda private.

Anyway if you’re thinking about it, you could at least try it. I’m very liberal about being Catholic (ha) and I think if you just want to try giving something up, then why not?

I hear you. I’m a product of some serious Catholic upbringing combined with ages of Catholic schooling, so we always had to share what we were going to give up. I definitely always had a decoy sacrifice (chocolate) and then something a little more serious.
I stopped doing that after college, though… and it’s been ages. I think I will observe Lent this time though. I’ll look forward to reading your post!
