We throw about a party a semester at our house haha. We go all out at least twice a year and it’s so stinking fun. A couple of months ago John Luke told me he wanted to throw a Mardi Gras party since more than half our friends have never heard of Mardi Gras or have had creole food. SO we decided to bring some Louisiana culture up to Virginia and celebrate Mardi Gras!! We strapped a cooler to top of our car that was loaded with deer meat, crawfish, and duck haha.
Everyone came early to help because that was the only way we were going to be able to make all the food. There was literally something on the stove or in the oven from 1 in the afternoon to 10 that night. From the gumbo all the way to the beignets we made as a late night snack. Our friends are the best.
Speaking of our friends. I adore our friends. I absolutely adore who God’s got us doing life with right now. It is so special. I also love how we can have this much fun without needing to have alcohol haha. We’ve got such a fun-loving bunch!
John Luke is the world’s best party planner though. He always knows how to set up a night and comes up with the funnest games. I honestly don’t know how he always pulls it off. That boy loves to create an environment for people to have fun and let loose and I love that about him. The only thing that went wrong was when out grill caught on fire. That kind of seems to be becoming a bit of a tradition…hmm. Something we’re working on haha.
Have a great Fat Tuesday everyone!!
