Happy Fat Tuesday people! This past Friday, I went to the Highland Ball where fun was had by all. This is practically the only time  that I ever get to wear a formal, so I took full advantage, wearing a gold dress I got for $5.00 from an estate sale. The dress is really three pieces, a top, skirt, and some kind of cape thing that I tied around my waist to create the illusion of one complete dress. 
If you don't live in the South, Mardi Gras is basically two weeks of craziness in New Orleans.  I live in north LA, so our version of Mardi Gras is way tamer. Three parades and a few balls. Still, a very good time, and yes that is a cold Taco Bell taco that was thrown from a float at the Highland parade. And of course I ate it.
