OMG! I got so bit by the shopping bug while at the French Market! There are tons of souvenir things, food, clothes and everything imaginable for Mardi Gras. I couldn't resist, I picked up some masks and beads for Melanie and I. A friend of ours throws a big ass Mardi Gras party every year and we're always horribly underdressed and under-beaded. Not this year!
