Saturday, April 12th, was my 39th birthday. Mooey and Weenie threw a party for me to drown my sorrows of my last birthday in my 30's. Where did all the time go? Anyway, many peeps came and there was a special guest. More on that later. Please enjoy the pics of all my beautiful friends.

Mooey gave me my gift before everyone got there. It's a gift card to Chili's. I hate Chili's and just had a horrific experience at one in Jackson, Mississippi. It was a hysterical gift.

Mooey laid out a little food. That's Weenie's delicious pork tenderloin in the corner.

We built a fire pit outside since it was in the 50's.

Then the peeps started showing up.

Then the special guest arrived. It was my dear friend and celebrity Susan Marshall! She had set up in Mooey's den and began playing River when I walked in. It's my favorite.

Here's me enjoying the music.

After the mini concert, it was back to drinking and dancing.

It was indeed a late night! Thanks everyone for helping me bid farewell to the 30's.

Louisiana Wedding Day 3

We awoke the next morning a little groggy after the crawfish boil and the realization that we would be drinking yet again today. Weenie fixed my quiche for me that Margaret had left in the fridge. It was delicious. She had also made banana nut bread! My favorite.

We got dressed and had seen a thrift store we needed to go to. I think Mooey bought an old culinary book but there wasn't much in there that caught our eye.

We all wanted a cheeseburger and had heard that the best place to get a burger was at the truck stop. So, we headed over to the truck stop and went in. Doesn't it looks nice from the outside?

Mooey opted for an oyster poboy which looked great.

Here is my GIGANTIC cheeseburger. It took my hangover away!

We were running late as usual and had to get ready quickly.

Then it was off to Arnaudville where the wedding was being held.

The entrance to their house was decorated.

Joe, the groom's brother presided over the ceremony along with a Catholic priest.

The groom and the best man.

The bride!
The vows.
The kiss!

Making their exit!

Once the ceremony was over, the groom took the stage with his group Washboard Jungle.

The first dance!

In Louisiana, they have a tradition where everyone pins money to the veil of the bride.

Once it got dark outside, the band started. The River City Ramblers were so good and everyone danced and danced.

Here I am with the former Miss Sunset and Yam Queen.

We finally left around 12:30 (it started at 3:30) with four Corona's in my cargo shorts.
