We're ready for Mardi Gras Madness in Branson! Most of the ladies for the first weekend have already arrived, and one of them even had an authentic King Cake delivered from New Orleans for us to enjoy later this evening. What a treat!

For the first time ever, we had all the decorating and the store set-up done by the official starting time of 3 pm, and that was a nice way to start the weekend. We also have a new caterer (a regular in Stacey's card classes), and if the complete meals are as delicious as the samples she brought us a couple of weeks ago, we'll be in heaven. I'll give you a full report later, and let you know about her new meal-delivery business in Springfield.

Right now, everyone is doing that nesting/settling-in thing that we all do when we go to a retreat or mega-crop. Looking forward to a great weekend with a nice group of ladies!

As Stacey printed on our placecards...
"Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
Let the good times roll!

Cool! Looks great. Did you get that big thing from Oriental Trading Co. or from somewhere else? I really want to come again. I might have to beg someone to take on a roomie for the fall retreat. Maybe I will feel better when we finally get to go to St. Louis in April. Have FUN and don't eat too much. Tell Karin I miss her salsa.
