Dates for the Week

A few plans for this week include Mardi Gras and Valentines Day and a Baby Sitting Day.

King cake in all of its royal goodness
Mardi Gras:: Mardi Gras is Tuesday, March 2nd.  We have attended Mardi Gras parades many times in the past, even in New Orleans. Though I won't attend a Mardi Gras Parade this year,  I plan to have a date with a King Cake. I have to at least acknowledge Mardi Gras, so I can indulge in the tradition and end Mardi Gras season with one more King Cake. We've been eating them for weeks now. I'm glad it's come to an end for this year.

My favorite King Cake has to be the blueberry cream cheese. You need to taste it.

Then there are plans for Valentines Day this week on Thursday. .  Plans will include more eating. To acknowledge the Day and indulge in the one thing that that is synonomous to Valentines Day. And that would be CHOCOLATES.  I usually get a box of chocolates from my Valentine date.  Plus, a little preparation for Valentines Day include Valentines cards and making Valentine goodie bags for my Valentines.

And I will be down home just 2 days before Valentines Day, so I can have all my important dates this week on one given day. Daycare is closed for Mardi Gras. So are all the schools. But doctor's offices are open for appointments as usual. So what's a baby to do when mommy goes to work? Well of course maw-maw to the rescue! So we will be spending the day together and will get to be with both my little Valentines.

Needless to say, my week is full. Three days of fun and 4 days of work.
