The Week that Got Away…

Happy Monday!

Well, my goal of having a post every day Monday through Friday was blown up last week! I’m sorry for going almost a week (!!!) without any new content.

Last week, we had two big events: the unveiling of our Pride unifroms for Pelicans which are Mardi Gras-themed and the Justice For All Ball which was held at the Saints and Pelicans facilities on Friday night.

The below picture was taken by one of my co-workers, Ashley Amoss, at the uniform unveiling. When it came to this event, there were A LOT of variables and moving parts, but the ‘ta-daa!’ moment that we wanted so badly to create was a success. You can catch the whole video here.  There were 100 second-graders that sat in front of the stage which added a fun element and they brought some serious energy!

The next event was the Justice For All Ball benefiting the Pro Bono Project and that was on Friday night. The event was beautiful – the below photo doesn’t do it justice! I haven’t heard final numbers yet, but I hope the event raised a lot of money.

They’re too funny. JoJo always lays next to the bed like that, but, most times, sticks his head underneath so it’s dark — he’s an ostrich dog!

Yesterday was game day for the Saints… not the outcome we were all hoping for but tomorrow is the start of a new day!

Here’s to a good start of the week! Leaving you with one of my favorite quotes from this article. I can’t even remember where I first clicked on a link, but it was an interesting read.

“You bring your own weather to the picnic.”

Have a great day!
