Dean & I are off this week. YAY!! We don't have any plans, we're just hanging out. Saturday we ran a few errands & did some work in the yard. You may remember our uninvited guest from Memorial Day.
He won't be visiting again. I almost passed out during the process of murdering him. I swear this is the snake that wouldn't die. At one point I had him pinned down with one shovel while Dean was attempting to decapitate him with another.
We know this is the same snake from Memorial Day because my brother knew he'd sliced into his tail. You can see the wound in the above pic. Trust me, it didn't slow him down any.

Sunday was Father's Day so we spent the day in the pool & eating. Dean cooked for our parents, his mawmaw & my brother & sis in law & Logan.
Logan, Dean & Scott all going after the diving sticks.
Logan took swimming lessons for the first time a few weeks ago. He was showing us how he can swim now. It's really amazing what they can teach them in 8 days!
Logan loves to get a prize. So this was his prize for showing us what he learned at swimming lessons.
He kept telling us "it's a really really big turtle".
He wanted us both on the turtle so here we are.
Someone enjoyed his cupcakes.
What is this you ask?? This is one of the best things I've ever eaten - Crawfish Pie!!! Dean's mom made it with fresh crawfish that Dean's dad caught. Sooooo good!

Sunday morning I had another 5 mile run. I set the clock for 6:00. I wanted to eat a little something & drink some water before the run. I had half an english muffin with peanut butter. The run went really, really well. So much better than last week.  I had a pedicure Friday afternoon & a guy did it which I don't really care for but he did a great calf massage. I think it probably loosened me up some. I even felt great after the run & yesterday!
That would be calories burned!

Sunday night was LSU's first game in the College World Series. What a bummer. They lost.

Monday we went & saw The Hangover III. It was funny! I liked it better than the second one.

Today we cleaned the closet (I'll have pics later), had lunch at Walk Ons, Yogurtland for dessert & now we're watching LSU's game. They're losing again. sigh.



  1. I've often felt that some of the best vacations were spent right at home. I have a little quote that I have in a small frame (it keeps moving around our home) that says,
    "Ah! There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." Jane Austen

    I love this quote! Hope you enjoy your entire week!

  2. Cute, cute, cute....well, except for the snake. Enjoy your vacation.

  3. Oh my goodness at the snake!!!!!!!! And LSU is just breaking Brandon's heart!

  4. Was this snake poisonous? Those pictures were gorey! I posted a picture of the fish hubby caught and I though I might get flack.

    That pool is awesome, is it a public pool or does it belong to someone in your family? It could be in a resort!

    Good for you with the running. My son just started up and he's doing a 7 minute mile. He was always the kid with the most energy!

    I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation!


  5. I hope you have a wonderful vacation.
