Writing from the beautiful Battle House in Mobile, Alabama, where I am transfixed by a 600-lb homage to a Moon Pie outside my hotel window. It's dropping in T-minus 14 hours, and I'm here to witness it for the magazine. (Here's an SL blog post about the Moon Pie madness sweeping the city.)
Just as exciting, we're riding in the New Year's Eve Parade. On a float.
Since I haven't been in a parade in about 28 years (during which I rode in Clearwater's Fun N Sun parade in Officer Friendly's Car for winning the safety slogan contest thank you very much) I'm not entirely sure what to wear.
But since this parade celebrates the beginning of Carnival season, I am thinking these will be our outfits:
Yes, that's Nate's Elvis cosutme. And what New Year's Eve would be complete without gold sequins?
Throw in some masks ...
And Moon Pies:
So long, 2010. May 2011 bring everyone their version of huge Moon Pies and gold shoes.
