I'm Baaaaack!
I can't say enough nice things about the Queen and her family. Her kids are fantastic. Her husband is perfect, but not annoyingly so. She is gorgeous, funny, and quite the legend in her small town. The Mayhems are all extraverts and made Hollis and me feel welcome right away. Of course, after the shenanigans that happened, The Queen will never believe that I'm an introvert!

I know you're all dying to hear more about Mardi Gras. I need a little time to recover and process all my photos. In the meantime, here's a little teaser....

This is how my first afternoon with The Queen of the Mayhem started off:

Appletinis


Then we headed off to run some "errands."

The Queen had to convince me she lived in the sticks, so she took me to her local butcher. Where they kindly showed me how they make sausage. It was strangely horrifying and fascinating at the same time.

Then I got a nice tour of the smokehouse.

Finally, The Queen and I stopped off at the daiquiri bar where we got, um..., sidetracked. Yeah, that's it.

The Queen was totally trying to blame the fact that she passed out fell asleep on the couch on me. I don't know. Who do you think is the bad influence here?

I have more dirt to dish in the future, so stay tuned....

I'm first! I'm first! I've never been first! I'm so glad that you had fun...you look so happy and pretty and wonderful in these shots. Can't wait to hear more. Living vicariously through you allows me to have a desperately needed vacation this week.

You know, I don't even know why I bothered reading this post after seeing the pics of appletinis.

An appletini alone lets me know where this post was headed, especially if it was mixed by the Queen.
