it's IN the computer...

Welcome to my new world. Yes, I'm a Mac. Jimmy ever so sweetly stepped on our only working computer last week... rendering me blogless, but then forcing our hand, naturally, to splurge on the one, the only, Apple! I have absolutely no idea how to do ANYTHING. I am sooo impressed that I finally figured out how to copy a picture, and subsequently post it in this blog, that I will leave it with you with visions of future sophisticated blogposts to come.

Boligee carnage

I don't think that I have properly celebrated my big kill for the year - yes, this is a wild pig - a female, so I don't think I can officially call it a 'boar', but it sure smelled like one! They are running rampant through Boligee and we must take care before all the crops get destroyed and the deer run away to the hills!


























I hope you don't think it inhumane! We give away all the pig meat to this man who likes to eat them...a little too gnarly and greasy for our taste! Below is an oldie of my buck from about four years ago.

















And as you can see, others celebrating the art of the hunt this year include my dad and Uncle Doc (priceless poses!), as well as Amelie and Kent!













the closest these canines get to actual
hunting...

i shudder

Shutter Island. I must plug, I loved it. And I had to drag Jimmy there because he is afraid of scary movies. We compromised, and went to the noon showing so he could avoid possible nightmares. But it wasn't that kindof scary, it is an amazing psychological thriller by Martin Scorsese, staring Leo and Ben Kingsley. A must see!

Happy Belated...Groundhog's Day!





So my cute dad always gives me yellow flowers for Groundhog's Day! This year they were joined by a little unexpected visitor in our front yard! Yay for Spring!

Fat Tuesday!


I truly lived up my Fat Tuesday... on call at the big house, with grandeur plans to give up icecream and frozen yogurt (I know, original). SO to celebrate my misery I snuck into the physician's lounge around 7:35 pm and came out with these two guys. While I am all about living it up, I must admit I only ate one of these, the other for my upper level resident Erica... I went with the Snickers!!

My weakness! I scream you scream

Seeing as I had a nice boring Saturday to myself (Jimmy is on call) - I had lots of time to enjoy painting, online shopping, and of course FoodNetwork and E!

Seeing as I spent about the first 4 hours of my day with FoodNetwork on background as I dabbled and enjoyed my coffee with whip cream and cinnamon, I heard this several times....

Seeing as this is advertising quite possibly my biggest weakness (and is quite catchy), I thought I'd share in case you didn't have as much free time as I did this weekend, and may have missed its repeated showings...

my weakness...in memories of Sasha, Jimmy, and Laura and wayyy too many nights in Chapel Hill making and eating our own versions!

Blizzards hit Birmingham....




Blizzard fever here in Birmingham. all three inches of it. I love it - of course. It'll probably be all melted by morning but still pretty sweet.

See little Piper galloping through the snow...!

Beat Dook!


ok.... since poor Roy and the boys didn't exactly pull one out last night, I will relish more in our only victory against Duke this year! Go Heels! (This is the Carolina Duke football game right on the field this past fall!)
