Ma Vie en Rose
Love list for February 17th
Since Mardi Gras is around the corner, I thought I would raise my glass to all the Louisianaians out there and to Napoleon Bonaparte, who sold the Americans the Louisiana Purchase, which included the Northern portion of my home state,Texas!
I would also like to dedicate this Love List soley to Louisiana and some of her own who J'adore!
Ohhh Harry! How I love you!
Mr. Harry Connick Jr.
The best concert I have ever been to in my entire life!
I took my Dad for his birthday, and it was Faaaabuloussss!
At the beginning of his show, he said, "I want you to say that this is the BEST concert of your LIFE!" and IT WAS!
For his encore, he did a second line around and through the audience walkways, complete with full band funk New Orleans style playing, Oh When the Saints go Marching in!
Love you Harry! You handsome Devil!
Just to give you some quick back history. In New Orleans, as well as other places around the world, Second Line can be best described as Bittersweet. As you will notice, the band starts by playing slow music, usually on the way to the cemetery , then the band plays faster music after the burial. The band and the family of the deceased we call the first line and the people following are called the second line. It is a tradition of showing one's sadness for losing their loved ones, however happiness for they have transcended!
When I die, I want a party complete with drinks, tacos and BBQ!!! I want people to remember me that I always provided a good time! teehee! :D
He may be a real bad boy, but baby he is a real good man! Tim McGraw! When I hear him sing, I get all chocked up! This Louisiana native, well, let's just say he makes my jambalaya spicy!
Muffelettas overlooking the Mississippi!
The famous sandwich which consists of salami, ham, mozerrella, olives, capers, artichokes, peppers, and all other salty and gooey goodness on french bread!
I ate this sandwich overlooking to Mississippi River with the Natchez floating on by, it was something to remember!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Thank you for stopping by for a spell!
I am a 40-something year old American woman. Born in Texas, raised in Las Vegas!
Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
