How to get beads at Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is not just for New Orleans. Mardi Gras is celebrated with a bang at Galveston, Texas every year. Last Saturday was the first weekend of parades. I posted about it last year here. So, I won't go into the whole history of me going to Mardi Gras. LOL!

Below is my darling hubby. No, he was not on drugs. Yes, he was wearing a pink wig and a fake chest. Yes, he flashed his "boobies" to get beads. The reactions from the people on the floats were hilarious! I got lots of pics, but thought this might be the least offensive to sensitive tastes. LOL!
This is me with my pink-haired honey. I never, ever, ever wear cowboy hats, but it was so sunny that I was blinded, even with sunglasses on, so I swiped Hubby's cowboy hat for the day.

We had a great time, catching beads and catching up with our friends. This was the first year that none of our kids came! Her 5 boys and our 3 kids were all too busy for us. We partied on without them. Yeah us!!

You look smokin' hot in a cowboy hat!
You two are soooo cute. I'm glad that you had fun and as you know I'm not easily offended and would love to see the other pictures!

LOL, SonyaAnn. I don't know about smoking hot, but Hubby and I do look pretty cute together.

I knew YOU wouldn't be offended. LOL! Maybe I will just email you a couple.

I wouldn't want anyone passing out at seeing boobies on my blog, even if they aren't real. LOL!

Omg, that pink wig is awesome!

Frances said...

Hi, Ace! Thanks for stopping by. Everyone loved that pink wig! I think I will have to buy Hubby one for next year. That wig belonged to my friend or her mom. They brought lots of "goodies". LOL! Over the years, we have had hats, masks, feather boas. Anything to get into the spirit of Mardi Gras!

I really liked wearing Hubby's cowboy hat. I think I will need to get my own for next year. Maybe in purple.

Thanks for stopping by!

I would love to see the pictures if you wouldn't mind! I sooooo want to live by you. You are so much fun!

Frances said...

We try to have fun...sometimes we succeed! LOL!

LOL - at least you didn't have to flash YOURS! Love his outfit!

Frances said...

I have never had to flash mine. LOL! Hubby has always been the flasher!

Thanks for coming to see me, McVal!

That is too funny! Your husband must be a blast.

Frances said...

Hi, Debbie! Thanks for coming by. I have to admit, my hubby IS a blast. He has never met a stranger and he is always the life of the party.

It's a good thing I am so quiet and demure to balance him out.

ROFL! I THOUGHT I could post the above sentence without laughing. Ha! Me quiet and demure. ROFL!
