Black Friday - A Nice Normal Day !

The day after Thanksgiving, better known as Black Friday, inspires some people to line up in front of stores at 5 am, to get the best deals of the season. It would take a bomb going off to get me out of bed at 5 am, after I didn't go sleep until 2 am! After 5 days of baking and cooking, I am ready to kick up my heels, party a little, and go dancing. I need to dance off all the extra calories from the praline sweet potatoes, the cornbread dressing, the kaluha brownies, etc. ( see my previous post for full menu). Nuff said!! It was a wonderful day and it was great to see the family and reminisce and catch up on each other's lives.

More on that will be coming up, but meanwhile, a few old friends are dropping by tonight and we've decided to have our own little dance party with a great sound system , tons of fabulous cd's, lots of good food, wine, beer, and a few gallon size frozen margueritas. These are my Zydeco buddies, so we're going to crank up the cd player for our favorite Zydeco band with the rockin sounds of Geno Delafose & French Rockin' Boogie. Let the good times roll, cher!



And Friday night, I am going "out with the girls", to the Thanksgiving Dance at Lake View Park, in Eunice, Louisiana. For fans of Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, this event is a must see and is guaranteed to be a blast! See ya'll there! Yes, tomorrow will be a nice normal day, a little afternoon shopping and best of all, NO COOKING! Woo hoo!
Happy Black Friday and shopping!

********
Here's a little clip of Geno and his hotter than hot, band French Rockin' Boogie. Just one Zydeco dance will cancel out all of the desserts that I ate today, cher and never mind if he's singing in Cajun French and you can't understand what he's saying. Trust me, it's all good! This clip was taken in Simi Valley, California and I promise you that most of the people dancing are NOT Cajuns. Enjoy!

Sounds like MY KIND of Black Friday! I hate shopping and especially hate waiting in lines. No thank you!

There are not too many times I will get up to go shopping at 5:AM!! I did once, many years ago when my kids were home and they had some super deals at 5:AM. Ugh, it was very hard to drag my butt out of bed.
I saw those gallon packages of marguerita mix and was wondering how they were. Do Tell........please!
You are loads of fun. I have fun just checking your blog out!!
