It's Friday!

So excited for the weekend. We don't have plans but the weather is supposed to be beautiful & I'm just happy not to have to be at work. I'm leaving in a little bit for my scan & the fasting is killing me. No food isn't an issue but having nothing to drink is really, really hard! I keep reaching for my cup.

Yesterday, Dean's parents went to Dulac, LA to get us all some fresh shrimp to freeze. They go every year & load up. We get an ice chest full which is 40 lbs. Shrimp is my favorite! Dean's parents deheaded them for us so all we had to do was put them in containers for the freezer. We were almost finished when I remembered to take pictures.
Here's a close up. The shrimp are big.
We put them in these plastic quart containers & fill them with water.
See how big?
Funny story. Dean is from a place called Bayou Pigeon which is a few miles down the road from Bayou Sorrel. If anyone watches "Swamp People", you've heard of Sorrel. Jr. & Willie live there. We pass Jr's doublewide going to Dean's parents. Troy Landry doesn't live far either. People say Dean has an accent. I don't hear it. I guess because I live with him. When we were in Dallas, Dean was talking to someone he knew & someone that was with them said "You sound like Swamp People". I thought this was HILARIOUS!!! Everytime I think about it I laugh.

BTW, I did get up at 5:00 for a run. It was in the 50's & actually a little chilly!

Have a good weekend!



  1. nice job on your run!! those shrimps are enormous!

    have a great weekend :)

  2. Ha, I just left a comment on the fresh shrimp on the wrong post. I was just catching up, and said everything in one comment, not realizing I was on the wrong post.
    Oh my, it has already been a long day here.

  3. SCAN....fill me in sista! Text/email please!

    I am so glad to hear about your running, yay you:) We need to plan a run togehter (like a marathon, so keep upping those miles sista!)

    PS: don't forget to swing by tomorrow for my blogaversary giveaway:)

  4. Hope all goes well with your scan! How funny you are married to the Swamp person (sorta). I don't hear Doug's Canadian accent anymore, but other people do, eh? ;)

  5. Holy Shrimp! Forty pounds?? That's a lot of shrimp! My hubby loves Swamp Loggers, is that the same thing? Hope you enjoy all that shrimp Traci!

  6. WOW! That's a lot of shrimp!!! I love shrimp, too!

  7. I'm so jealous...I LOVE shrimp!!! I can eat it every day. What a great idea to store them in those containers and they are all ready to go when you need 'em!

    I wanted to stop by and say hello. I hadn't been around blogville in a while becuase I had a lot of personal issues going on. I still love reading your blog more than ever though!!! :-)
