On a Boat...

My husband loves to fish and grew up going deep sea fishing. I'd never been out before, and we've talked about chartering a boat for years. I grew up fishing in ponds around my house with my dad and I've always wanted to try deep sea fishing.

Monday, my father-in-law, who is also an avid fisherman, invited us all out for a half-day of fishing. Hubs, my little guy and me all boarded the boat along with my mother-in-law and father-in-law at 6:30 Monday morning. We were armed with fried chicken, ham biscuits and suntan lotion. I was ready to experience my first "real" fishing trip.


We weren't going to go too far out, since it was just half a day and I wasn't sure how the little guy would do. But once we got out of the sound, past the lighthouse and about a mile into the ocean, I started puking. I got the sweats and all I wanted to do was jump off that friggin boat and was willing to swim back to land. My MIL got sick too and ONLY because of this did we decide to turn around and head back in. She gave my FIL "the look" and he understood. Had it been just me, I have a feeling I would have had to suffer out on the deep blue sea all by myself.


One good thing - the little guy wasn't phased by the motion of the ocean and he loved it. We only caught 4 fish that we could keep cause the babies kept biting, just enough to have for dinner that night.


Next time, the guys will go fishing and the gals are going shopping.


  1. One of the saving graces of our marriage is going shopping while the hubby fishes -- hope you find lots of unique stores to explore!

  2. Love the pics anyway...Maybe you can try it again sometime! Shopping is always good too though! Hope you are having a great day! = )

  3. Oh No....I fear that....therefore I will NOT go fishing or on a Cruise!!! My husband has tried repeatedly to take every drug he can get to go fishing cause he loves it...last trip pharmacist gave me something guaranteed to he is done with the deep sea fishing...just our boat and bream, bass, crappie/ha from now on...
    I can't imagine anything worse than that kind of sickness....

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
