Crawfish and Company

Last night Stuffed Husband and I hosted a few friends.  We ate lotsa crawfish, some homemade pizza, and (of course by my pop’s request) pig cake.  I am beginning to feel that pig cake is essential to any good time.  I’m making another pig cake for Stuffed Husband’s Mother tonight.  Her birthday is Monday!  Happy Birthday Queen Jean!  Just don’t ask her age.  Unless you want a black eye.

My mom and dad along with a few friends who recently graduated from Loyola (my alma mater) joined us to celebrate with some scrumptious seafood!

My momma found a few real gems in that 40 pound batch!

We had plenty of tails left over.  I’m dreaming up some recipes to use these bad boys up with!

Thanks for peeling those tails Stuffed Husband!  I couldn’t bring myself to mangle my nail polish.  I’m a delicate flower.

We even had an assembly line going for a while.  I’m good at giving direction.

Chloe helped out by chewing up a crawdad into 8 million tiny pieces for mommy to pick up.  Her next poop should be real interesting, folks.

Peace, love, and peelin’ tails ~

Finally, it’s Furball Friday!

Another week has come and gone.  The laundry pile has grown, the dust has gathered, and my floor needs mopping.  I see an exciting weekend full of dusting, mopping, and folding laundry in my future.  I’m clairvoyant like that.  To help cheer me up I decided to avoid the necessary chores and play on the computer.  Hooray for procrastination!

This week’s sweet featured furball is actually our very first pair of pups!  Meet Chloe and Chocolate

Chloe and Chocolate!

1. Age : They turned one in February.
2. What you can’t get enough of : How they are so sweet and passive and very affectionate with the kids.
3. Favorite playtime activity :They love being chased and being soaked with the water hose.

What a pair of cutie pies!!  These precious puppies are the babies of Nena.  Interesting side note, Nena was my childhood babysitter, dance teacher, and idol growing  up.  I wanted to be just like her.  Actually, I still want to be just like her.  About her furry friends Nena says:

“Labs are naturally active so they are never bored. They love to chew on everything such as grass, furniture, shoes and anything left unattended. We used to have a beautiful garden many moons ago, a picnic table and an inflatable pool with a bouncer.”

There is always a price to pay when you have puppies.  I’ve paid with hours of my life spent washing peed-on blankets, towel, t-shirts, puppy beds, and more.  I’ve mopped more in the last two months than probably my ENTIRE life.  But I grew up with a maid so that one’s not necessarily fair.   My first go at laundry freshman year of college was…interesting.  Welcome to real life.

On another note, Jen has been named winner of the Kate’s Custom Creations giveaway!!!

Happy Friday everyone!  Try to do something just for yourself this weekend.  Paint your toenails, sing loud in the shower, eat a dozen cookies, watch a stupid 80’s movie just to see Jake Ryan, or cuddle up next to the people and pets you love and take a nice long nap right smack in the middle of the day.  You’ve worked hard, you deserve a break.  At least that’s what I’ll be telling myself tomorrow after I polish off a handful of Thin Mints while watching 5 consecutive episodes of Roseanne curled up on my couch with my puppies and never getting out of my robe.   That is the beauty of Saturday.

This is the beauty that is Jake Ryan. I die.

Here is a perfect example of what your Saturday should look like… This is my bff J-train, aka Jeremiah, aka Ari loving on my babygirl after a nice mid-day nap.
