How to be kind at Mardi Gras 101

Through all the crazy that is Mardi Gras season here is a few tips on how to stay kind to those around you.

1.) Be aware of the kids around you. If someone on the float throws a bear to a kid, don’t be the person that reaches above and takes it from them.

2.) Thank the float-riders!! If they throw you something make sure you give them a nice wave. As excited as you are to catch something, they are just as excited to throw it to you. Think of it like a gift. You would never receive a gift from someone without thanking them.

3.) Don’t steal someones spot by pushing them out of the way. That is just ugly.

4.) Don’t post people’s embarrassing drunken moments all over social media. That can be someones mom, grandpa, boss, etc. and you do not want to hurt their reputation. If you wouldn’t want it posted of you, don’t do it to them.

5.) Pro-Tip from my Grandmother: Know how to point people in the direction of the nearest port-a-potty.

Sticky Note Smiles #protip

For all of those who loved the sticky note smiles project, here is a quick way to make it a little easier.

Unlike most girls my age I have almost illegible handwriting, so it made this sticky note project a little harder for me. To help me to continue to do one of my favorite act of kindness, I got a pre-made sticky note book. The one I have is called “Positive Posts” by Papier De Maison.

I like to carry the book in my purse, to make it easy to add a few notes when I am out running errands.
