A Rubies Tour

I know, I'm terrible at blogging. In my defense though, I've been very busy attempting to find a job, move somewhere, pay off $30,000 in debt as quickly as possible, etc.

I took a break from the craziness for more craziness, a two week tour of the south with the band mentioned below, Rodeo Ruby Love. Though my primary duties were singing, playing the glockenspiel and selling cds to 15 year old girls, of course pictures were taken.

Day 1 started out with us driving through the aftermath of a horrific snow/ice storm in Indiana and Kentucky. We were stopped on the highway for over an hour.

The boys posed for a post-show, pre-warmth picture in Birmingham.

Of course, where there are boys, there will be boys jumping over things.

A MASSIVE dance party erupted after our house show in Baton Rouge.

Courtney, our host in Baton Rouge, took us to Mardi Gras.
I caught this one at Cafe du Monde, totally candid, the saddest photo ever.

Mmmmmm Beignets and Cafe au Lait!

Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads!
Courtney informed us that it is tradition to throw powdered sugar all over each other after eating beignets at Cafe du Monde, the boys happily upheld the tradition.

With the help of the old dude in the background, who gave us an entire plate full of powdered sugar.

Thanks old dude, you're only slightly creepy.
Four Square was played in almost every city. It was beautiful in Mississippi right before the Superbowl.

The Steelers won, and there was much rejoicing. I have a feeling the rest of tour might not have been very fun had there been a different outcome.

Our venue in Tallahassee, Florida, The Shed. My life was threatened by a crazy bum immediately after taking this photo.

We stayed at Rollins College near Orlando one night. GORGEOUS Spanish architecture and mossy trees.New friend Justin and I hung out for a day in Atlanta while the boys did sportsy things.

We had so much fun together that we decided to meet up in Kentucky for a camping trip next month. Stoked. :)

More to come tomorrow.
