Mardi Gras is crazy around here.
I have not yet been to one, despite living here for so many years. I think I can't stand the crowds, unavailability of parking, and the worry for my young children.
Maybe one day, but for now I live vicariously.
Did you get to visit the Mardi Gras revelry as yet? How do you feel about it?

Here’s a list of the top 5 things you should know about this lively holiday:
#5: How to spell “krewe” and “flambeaux” and “Mardi Gras” and, well, you get the point.
#4: Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold. Remember to coordinate your outfit appropriately.

#1: The Number 1 thing you must know about Mardi Gras season is that Community© Mardi Gras King Cake coffee hits the shelves. Celebrate with the “king” of all flavored coffees with some light vanilla and cinnamon flavoring!
Coffee - How Do you like yours? And are you an addict?
And the coffee - I'm quite surprised at how immersed society has become with coffee. It's as if some people can't survive at all without the brew.
It's not my vice.
However, I'll take a nice cuppa as a treat every now and then. As a matter a fact, I've been enjoying those new frosted coffees!
I received the above pack and was so excited to try them. Truly if I could have a coffee spray for the house, I would.
I love the smell of the brew!
I did make my own and the kids loved it, but the husband said, it had too much cream :)
I must admit, I make my cream with some coffee :)
But the best tasting so far was the king cake flavored. It was quite enjoyable.
I am very glad to make my own brew every now and then here at home.
What is your must-have coffee flavor?
