Mardi Gras, Baby!

I…AM…STIR CRAZY!!! Nine – count ‘em – NINE weeks since this most recent spine surgery and I am STILL on lockdown for what seems like perpetuity! I’ve been growling and pacing, and I’m just about ready to bite!!! But I am making progress, albeit at a snail’s pace.

Thank goodness for a very welcome email from a freelancer on behalf of who reached out to me for permission to use a photo from my 2013 post, Mardi Gras Madness.  My chance to blog without having to do any real work!!! I hope you will pop over to take a look at “10 Centerpiece Ideas for Your Mardi Gras Party” which went live yesterday. I’m #5 on the countdown.

Have a joyful and raucous (but don’t come to me for bail money!😉) Fat Tuesday, and a loving and memorable Valentine’s Day! I”ll see ya when I’m a bit more limber and mobile!

  1. Oh I just love it when I get to spend the morning with you. You made my day today, because I have Mardi Gras fever bad this year. After one last trip to Dollar Tree I finally decided that this was the year I’d do a tablescape to celebrate. I even did the mantel this year too.
    Alysia, please don’t get down. You’ll get your “Mo Jo” back with a vengeance soon. I just know it. Love all your Mardi Gras tables. They really show “Let the good times roll” and I know your good times are just around the corner. Hang in there girl friend. You are WOMAN, let me hear you ROARRRRRRR.

  2. Its nice to see you almost back to normal – if there is such a thing!!! It’s been a long road for you and I hope you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Take Care!!! We want to see you dancing again soon.


  3. I am thoroughly impressed, Alycia! You really took those steps like a pro, and that’s real progress. I know you said your back mobility was next to none, but you look good. Trim, healthy mama!


  4. Alycia,
    Your Mardi Gras table is amazing. Love all the purple and green together. Elegant stemware. Going to look at everything you have referenced tonight. Your spirit is strong and speaks to the amazing person you are. Happy Mardi Gras! Much love.


  5. Hi Alycia! Pls keep up the good work. You look wonderful, even though I know you’ve been through alot. We’re all out here sending messages of love and support. You are missed, and it’s always a good start to the day when your name pops up in my inbox . Take care. Rosie
