My sister posted this photo collage to facebook, and it is just everything. Craig’s little old man swim trunks, Carrie being a hamming ham-nugget, my bangs. All of it.
That dance costume was. such. a. big. deal. It had a tiara! And feather shoulder puffs! We danced to Janet Jackson’s “Black Cat” that year. I felt so grown up.

I wish I had known Little Dance Kate. Would have been jealous of your hair even then…
Because I have a girfriend who is a krewe co-captain, and several geek friends who are captains, parade mistresses and ChewbacchanAliens, I have the privilege of being involved in watching various aspects of planning and executing this awesome parade…
