you ain't nothin' but a (catahoula) hound dog!

Hey everyone! This has been a really nice week for Cade and I because he's off for spring break. He goes back to school on Monday, so our fun time is drawing to a close.... but fear not! He is off for the summer in only 4 short weeks :) I can't wait. And, on the 16th we go to the Owl City/Lights concert in Houston!

On Tuesday night we went to my favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, and I got eggplant parmesan (my favorite!) and Cade had fettucini alfredo. After our dinner we went to see She's Out of My League, which was really really funny. The movie actually made me think about myself, and the way that I often view my appearance. I thought that the message of the movie was really good... so go see it! :)

These lizards are always crawling all over Cade's mom's house.
I can never catch them!

Yesterday Cade and I went fishing with his mom and his little sister Kari. I have only gone fishing a few times in my life, so it was kind of fun and different. I was excited because I caught 2 sunnies and 3 catfish! I am not a big fan of seafood, at all, but I wanted to try them since his mom was frying some for dinner. Unfortunately, I am still not a fan. There is something about the after taste of fish that just grosses me out. But I am proud that I tried something new.

This is the first catfish I caught. Cade had to take the hooks out
of their mouths while holding them with pliers because they have whiskers
that can paralyze you if you touch them-- scary!

These worms grossed me out so much. I felt sick every time I had to touch one.
Tomboy, I am not.

Today at work my boss got 7 pounds (!!!!) of crawfish for lunch. He wanted me to try one, so I obliged. It was SPICY! I couldn't taste anything fishy at all, all I could taste was the spices. My lips were bright red and burning for an hour after I tasted it. They kind of looked like little lobsters. They weren't bad, but they were way too spicy for my taste.

This is Cade's sister's cat. I love her because she
reminds me of my cat back at home, Blue.

This little guy lived at the catfish farm.
He's a catahoula hound dog, which is a dog breed that originated in Louisiana.
I think they are so cute because they usually have one blue eye
and one brown eye, and they have spots like a dalmatian :)


  1. yay for spring break and all the fun it allows!

    i'm not a big fan of fish either, but I attempt to try it whenever i can thinking maybe i just have found the right fish or something. gotta try!

    cute cat and dog!

  2. sweet puppy! just precious.

    i'm totally craving olive garden now. i haven't been in so long! oh pasta, you are a weakness. actually, carbs in general are a weakness. ;)

  3. Fishing is one of my fave things to do! It is so calming and the best reward is getting to eat your catch!

  4. Looks like you are having fun! I LOVE Catahoulas!!!

  5. It looks like you guys had an awesome time! I love to go fishing!

  7. i just searched places online where i could watch true blood. that's probably not totally legal, but i need my vampire bill ;).

  8. Looks like you had lots of fun. Great pics!

  9. Has anyone ever told you you look just like the actress Saoirse Ronan? Or rather she looks a lot like you cus she's younger! She came out in "Atonement" with Keira Knightley and "The Lovely Bones." I swear it's the first thing I thought of when I was looking at your pictures! :)
