Did you you know Mardi Gras in America started in 1703 in Mobile, Alabama? The area had been taken over by the French the year prior, and the celebration wouldn’t reach New Orleans until nearly two decades later.
You can learn this and more at the Mobile Carnival Museum, an ode to the celebration that city residents and visitors look forward to every year. As one of my new Mobile friends says, as soon as Mardi Gras is over, everybody starts planning for the next year.
I recently spent a couple of days in Mobile, Alabama, and one of my favorite experiences was a visit to The Fort of Colonial Mobile.
A little back story for you…
Mobile was first established by the French in 1702, as as Fort Louis de la Mobile, and was the oldest permanent settlement in the original Colony of French Louisiana. In 1723, construction of a new brick fort with a stone foundation began, renamed later as Fort Condé in honor of Louis Henri de Bourbon, duc de Bourbon and prince de Condé.
Ben & Jerry’s has partnered with the Marley family for an ice cream tribute to Bob Marley called One Love.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I’m banding together with a few other bloggers to talk openly about the topic today.
As many of you know, I have been dealing with a lot of physical health issues the last few years, including MS, heart/lung/kidney failure, and cancer. But hand in hand with that, I’ve also been dealing with a lot of mental health issues I haven’t talked about as much.
Two weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend Star Wars Celebration 2017 here in Orlando, and I loved being totally immersed in the SW Universe for four days, amongst my geek peers.
However when the weekend finished, not only had I managed to catch “con crud” (the lovely mini-flu that happens when you have so many people in an enclosed space for several days), but I realized I had over 2000 photos to go through.
So while this recap is a bit late, I’m blessed with having the annual unoffical Star Wars holiday, May the Fourth Be With You, to take a look back at the panels, creations, and cosplay I encountered during the weekend.
I’m excited to announce that I’m kicking off May with my first big trip of the year to Huntsville, Alabama to attend the TBEX travel writer’s conference, and immediately following, I’m headed down to Mobile, where they have a wonderful itinerary planned.
Legendary music icon Paul McCartney has added a new U.S. leg to his 2017 One On One tour, and it includes a slew of dates kicking off May 5 in Miami, FL.
A live McCartney show is not to missed for any music lover. His shows often run around the three hour mark, and include many memory making songs from over 50 years of music.
Here is the list of titles coming to Netflix in May 2017, as well as the ones that are leaving.

In the U.S. Virgin Islands, March 31 is the 100th anniversary celebration of “Transfer Day,” which is when Denmark sold the islands to the United States for $25 million.
Normally the three islands – St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas – mark the annual holiday with parades. But since 2017 marks the Centennial, the USVI have decided to also offer a $300 bonus to guests who visit at least one of the islands during the calendar year.
This morning at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Lucasfilm held a panel for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it included the very first trailer for the movie.
The crowd reaction was wild! So many screams and applause. And with good reason.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues the story of Star Wars: A Force Awakens, and this was the fan’s first look at what to expect.
I’m excited to announce my media badge has arrived, and I’m going to be covering Star Wars Celebration 2017 here in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center the weekend of April 13-16.
I have been a die-hard Star Wars fan since seeing the original, A New Hope, on opening weekend in 1977. I have seen every other Star Wars movie opening weekend, as well.
I fell in love with The Smurfs as a child in the 80s, and I still have a fondness for the tiny blue characters. So I’m super excited for the upcoming new movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village, due in theaters in the U.S. on April 7, 2017.
So excited, I’ve created a super simple, fun, and tasty Smurf Float recipe to celebrate before and/or after your family sees the film.
And if that’s not enough, I’m offering a chance to win a Smurftastic prize pack including a t-shirt and more.
