The Good Side of Glitter

Across the city of New Orleans, just before and all during, women (and men too) are breaking out the glitter. We are in prep mode for our parades across the city in Cleopatra, Muses, Nyx, King Arthur and more. Each parade has its signature throw, and it has been declared that it must be covered […]

Why We Decided To Donate Our Frozen Embryos

Let’s be real, Metairie parades have a bad reputation. The big show is in New Orleans. All the super krewes with coveted throws roll there. The city is party central from the Quarter to the Avenue. The tourists may book a hotel in Metairie to save a few bucks, but they aren’t camping out on Veterans all […]
