Hello World!

So sorry about the design wall snafu yesterday. I should have known I couldn’t get the On the Needles, Stash Report and Design Wall posts up without screwing something up and then when y’all began telling me it wasn’t working, all I had was my cell phone and very little service but I think it worked out . . once it started working again.

For someone who uses the internet and computer as much as I do, having no internet is strange. I thought it would be worse than it has been but surprisingly, it hasn’t been bad at all not having internet but a million times over the past week, I’ve thought of things I wanted to blog about and then realized I couldn’t. My cell phone does work . . though I don’t have great service, but trying to make a blog post via cell phone is downright torture for me.  I came to my parents’ house today where I can use the internet and make a few blog posts so .. here I am again!  :)

It’s been a busy few days. We’ve been able to get a bit of our favorite Louisiana foods. We’ve had crawfish.

We’ve had fried popcorn shrimp and fried rolls at Steamboat Bill’s.

Addie even has her Mardi Gras beads that my aunt and uncle brought her.

It’s been a great visit with Chad, Nicole, Addie, my parents, my aunt and uncle and before it’s over, I hope to see my sister . . especially since I’ve been crashed at her house!

    I’m thrilled your are getting family time. I know you are soaking it up. Thank you so much for sharing bit of it with us. I have lived in Louisiana (I graduated high school from Bossier High) and I was stationed in Biloxi. So those foods take me back. Enjoy your time. :)

    Glad you’re back! And with that cute picture of Addie, she looks so sweet. But, what are fried rolls? I never heard of them, and the roll on the left of your plate doesn’t look fried to me. Just wondering.
