Weekending: Oysters and Bloody Marrys

I had a a perfect low key weekend with family this weekend until I started to get sick Saturday night which led to a doctor visit and day off work resting. Boo for the last part so let's focus on the fun! Justin and I spent the weekend visiting his parents. The motivation behind our trip was to meet the newest family member... Charlie! A PRECIOUS 6 week old tiny Shih Tzu. (He belongs to J's parents, not us). I was excited to see how Henson was going to react to him. Henson is almost 70 lbs and I'd be surprised if Charlie has even reached 2 lbs. Surprisingly, Henson was scared of him at first. By Saturday he would stare at him.. I think trying to figure out exactly what this little creature was, and by Sunday he would, kind of, initiate play. I think he will come around. (; 

 On Saturday more family came over and we enjoyed oysters, corn chowder, to die for broccoli cornbread (seriously amazing, sharing the recipe soon) and bloody marrys! It was so nice to have the whole day to enjoy each others company with good food and yummy drinks. We used zing zang for the drinks.. If you have an awesome bloody marry recipe I'd love the hear what you use! I had high hopes of winning the lottery Saturday night but obviously that didn't happen. Oh well...

I've got to figure out how to get my blanket scarf under control! That thing takes over! ha

Look how tiny Charlie is next to Henson! I think Henson truly believes he is a tenny tiny lap dog. Charlie on the other hand showed no fear! These pictures were taken Saturday night when they had warmed up to each other some. Friday night Henson wasn't getting anywhere close to baby Charlie. 

Sunday and all day today I have spent the day resting and doing everything in my power to start feeling better. Sleep, water, doctor visit, more sleep, juice, medicine medicine medicine.. you name it. I'm determined to be at work tomorrow! Tonight brings the Bachelor AND the Clemson/Alabama game... what are you watching/ who are you pulling for?! I have family members that go to Clemson and live in Alabama and have always liked both teams so I can't wait to watch!


  1. Charlie is so adorable!! Looks like y'all had a fun weekend (minus you being sick :/) Hope you feel better!!

  2. Oh my goodness, so tiny!!! It really puts his size in perspective next to Henson. How is Charlie's personality? My friend got a puppy that looks similar to Charlie and that little thing can be so mighty and aggressive. You said you have to get your scarf under control lol, that's how I feel when I wear mine too.

  3. I had no idea you were from Alabama! I'm also from Alabama, and a die-hard Auburn fan, so it's so hard for me to pull for Alabama tonight...but I would love to keep it in the state!
