Where in the World is Lindsay?

Happy Tuesday!  Today is my own personal Fat Tuesday, because I'm on my way to New Orleans!  If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen that my family (sans little bro and his girlfriend) are in town!

Families who just stand there and try to look perfect are lame.  We are so much cooler than that!

We had a busy, busy weekend together here in Houston, and now we're road trippin' our pretty little behinds to NOLA for the rest of the week.   I can't wait to sink my teeth into a beignet, take in the sights, and soak in the jazz.  Oh, yes, the jazz!

I hope you're having a great week too!  Don't forget you have until tomorrow to link-up for Flaunt Your Cause before Emily and I draw the winner of the donation!  We've had more link-ups than I expected, and I've been so inspired by the causes of other bloggers. 

And I'd also like to say that I'm so thankful to all of you who sent me such nice comments and tweets about yesterday's post.  It was a tough one to write, and I know that there are some unanswered questions.  Maybe one day I'll have the courage to write more candidly about teenage death, eating disorders, and self-harm (mutilation <-- but I hate that word!).  However, today is not that day, and I'm going to live it up in New Orleans instead.  :-)

As my dad always tells me, MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!

Love you hot stuff.
And, yes, your family is the coolest.
I even made my husband agree.

Enjoy NOLA. Never been, sadly :(
Thus, you must document well so I can live vicariously through you.

Have a great trip! I've never been to NOLA but I'm already jealous of the great food.

Wow! Sounds like a fabulous time that awaits you and your family. There is nothing quite like family time, especially if you don't see them that often.

I just read your post from yesterday and wow, what a letter. You touch on so many bitter-sweet moments in the growing up process, these things we need to learn, these mistakes we need to make in order to grow and become the people we are meant to be.

I'm sorry for the losses and hard times you have been through ...
