Music makes it all better!!!

My hubby surprised me today by planning a visit to the Cajun French Music Festival. Oh my what a treat!!!  A cajun band playin Ti NaNA( don’t ask cause I don’t know what it means in Cajun frenc!)

All I know is its a regular and I bumble through the words with the old cajun guys as they play-and I have NO IDEA what its all about-it’s just good music!!!

I would love to eat all that Cajun food!! Being on Weight Watchers is great, but I miss my old habits of eating whatever and whenever I want, which would include rice and all of that stuff in great quantities! :) Glad you had fun.
