When a Saturday night unexpectedly ends like this, you know something has gone right.
I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, though.
On Friday, I got to see Warm Bodies with two of my favorite people. I really had zero expectations going into the theater. My sister saw it weeks ago and loved it, but we have totally different tastes in movies, so that opinion didn't hold much water. I was so pleasantly surprised. It was, hands down, one of the wittiest movies I've seen in a while. Highly recommended!
On Saturday, my parents invited a few people over for an Oyster Roast. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, folks wait around all year for oyster season. My dad has always loved oysters, but my mom was never a fan, so I just didn't grow up eating them all the time. A few years ago at a Sunday School party, I tried my first oyster and was hooked. So, so good! I had literally been counting down the hours all last week until we got to Saturday. What was supposed to be a seafood dinner turned into an afternoon/evening oyster "graze." It was rainy and humid but perfect for a lazy day. Here are A LOT of images I snapped along the way. Get comfy...
Again, this was just our afternoon. For dinner, we had fried oysters, fried shrimp, jambalaya, and sides. I'm still drooling over it!
After a few interesting dinner conversations/Youtube videos, we decided to head back to the porch, bake a few more oysters, and, of course, practice target shooting with Coke cans. In the dark.
Yes, that's a Fruity Pebbles "rice krispy" treat
