Mother's Day: Crawfish + House Gawking

May 12, 2013

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day weekend! I had family in town and it was my birthday, too (29 again in case you're wondering). After so much celebrating, I wanted to spend Sunday somewhere casual with a water view so we headed up to the lake. The deck seating was full, but it was still nice sitting inside with the breeze coming in. When I wasn't listening, my husband had the bright idea to order crawfish for an appetizer. I might originally be from Louisiana, but I am not a fan. My brave 7 year old son not only tried one, but did not hesitate to suck the head when dared by my husband and dad. Maybe he'll be on Fear Factor one day?

Doesn't my husband just look mischievous in this picture? He's probably thinking,"She has no idea what's coming, hahahahaha."

Afterwards, the girls (and my brother) decided to swing by a fairly new neighborhood in our town to gawk at the pretty houses. That's always fun. I spied a builder sign that advertised an open house and I just had to go in. Do you want to see? I thought so. ;)

I didn't want to break your concentration with words. If you want to see the listing with even more pictures, click here. It's a steal at $5.2 million in case you're in a buying mood.

  3. We have the same design style and even the same birthday! I can't believe I didn't know that! I also literally cannot believe that your son sucked the head off of a crawfish. My kids would never do that in 1 million years. It must be funny to have an adventurous eater!
