Part I: The GOOD

Part I: The GOOD.

Our Easter was happy. :)

Harli looked adorable

and we took a million pictures.


My two besties.

We are so grateful for Easter, reasons which we celebrate it, and all that it brings.

Such a wonderful time of year.

Rain, anyone?

Friday it rained-scratch that- it poured. So much so, that we had a river in our backyard.

Thank GOODNESS our house is high enough we didn't flood.

I've never seen so much [rain] water!

We had tornado watches, sirens, the whole bit too... Kind of crazy.

The water from our neighbor's house was rushing so fast it not only looked like a river, but it sounded like one too.

(Mike was shoveling leaves away from the fence so the water could flow better)
Almost up to his knees!

Gotta love this crazy Mississippi weather! :)

Crawfish season.

This is why I love the Spring in the South, y'all. Really. Not only do we have 70-80 degree weather already, but we have good 'ol Southern cookin'. Loooooooooooovvve me some Southern food.

There is a place in Memphis called Fat Larry's that is number one on my list. THE best barbeque I've ever had. So good. I always get the fried pickles, bbq pork, and coleslaw. I know, I'm drooling on the keyboard too just thinking about it.

While we're not in Memphis, there is a place here in Starkville called The Little Dooey that we like. It's a super famous bbq place that is a close second... Last night we went there because we wanted to try crawfish for the first time. I loved it. It was just like bite sized lobster. I told Mike we have to go back every date night until crawfish season is over, it was that good; and that I want to learn how to cook them so when we come home in the summer we can have a crawfish boil for everyone! :)

[These pictures aren't very good because I took them with my phone. But I was that excited about eating crawfish... I just felt so Southern! :)]

It was only $3.50/lb - can you say 'woohoo for cheap dinners?' ha ha

As long as I didn't look at their beady little eyes I was good.

I can't wait to share it, y'all!!
