Virginia on my Mind

I think you all know by now that my Baby Bird is going to go to school in Virginia this year.  Sigh.  I'm still working on my commutation plan, and I may have something brewing.  In the meantime, I apparently went to a Shrimp Bawl Boil at Big Hair Envy's Virginia spread last weekend.  I'm such a party girl.  Here I am flanked by Noe Noe and Big Hair herself.  See how they love me?

In reality, I had my own Connecticut version of a shrimp something.  Just not sure what.  But how cute is that bag?  Another Shrimp Bawler, Marlene, made it for me after I donated to a worthy cause.  Anyway, I had a point to all this, but I cannot remember what it was.

Seriously.  I wish I knew what I wanted to say.
  I'm sure it was profound.

Nipping at the Absolute were we??
If you figure out a stealth plan for VA could you help me with one for Canton NY? I just need 6.5 hours to get there.

We'll be here when the thought comes back.

Linda said...

Sigh! I do that all the time. I even forget words when I know what I want to say.

My kids all live 6 hours away from me, and I don't get to see them as often and I'd like, but probably see them more than they'd like. Too Bad!

Great bag!

You'll remember it, when you are driving down the road or somewhere else where you can't get to a pen/paper to write it down! (that's what happens to me)

Daryl said...

Oh you had a good time at the shrimp boil/briol/brawl .. and if the thought comes back, trap it and send up a flare

imom said...

That happens to me at least once a day. Looks like you had a great time at the shrimp boil!

Ellen said...

When the MPM tee shirts come out, I want one!

Love the bag. Love shrimp. Hate senior moments.

I'm a great rest stop on the way to VA!

Your fan club is obsessive. I mean impressive! Shrimp balls are delicious. I mean fun.

If you go to the pioneer woman's site, she has a recipe for spiced shrimp that is fantastic and super quick and easy. As a die-hard southerner, I never ate shrimp any way other than boiled (balled as they say around these parts) and spiced with Old Bay. Now that I've done it her way, I can't go back. Super easy and very tasty.

I think I just wrote your post for you. Apologies. Too much caffeine, not enough common sense.

Debbie said...

Hey..yeah. Ellen had a small and clever idea. I want a T-shirt! Just do it...if you don't forget your blog name.

You will be fine. You may join me in Farm Town at any time in the future ROFL :)

Kacey said...

Hang in there on that whole Virginia thing. I hate it when they run away from home...er...go off to college. Sigh.

Gin said...

Love your post - especially since my name is Virginia...
Adorable bag!

Decadent Housewife said...

Who cares. The bag is cute and they are kissing your picture.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Deb said...

that bag is so cute...you donated it? lucky person.
as for shrimp...cannot eat it...love it...but it does not like me one little bit.
is there a bullet train from Conn to VA that I don't know about?

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Wait. Who has the Tee shirts? I want one too! That dreaded CRS!(can't remember sH*t!)

Keetha said...

Ah, lawd! I do that all the time.

You are looking quite fetching at the shrimp boil!

Sassy said...

Sadly.....I understood everything you said....


but if you remember where you were going with this...I'll tune back in...and I'll take a t-shirt too!

Nurse Nancy said...

I will be hanging on for dear life waiting for the point to come and trying to remember why I am hanging on in the process!

noble pig said...

The shrimp bawl looks like it was a blast. However you should try to loosen up at parties more, you look a little stiff and uh...flat.

Suz Broughton said...

You look a little shining in the picture--should have reapplied before they whipped out the camera :)

big hair envy said...

Actually, the Bawl was at Noe's place. SO glad you could join us, but wish you could remember how much fun we all had!!!!

Cool Breeze said...

You should have seen what they did with pic late night ...

Country Girl said...

What do you mean? I totally understood the whole post. Totally.

So what do you have brewing with the plan? And let me know if you ever need a driving partner. I LOVE it at UVa.

Shawn said...

Ahh, I love those profound points that you not quite make. One of these days, you'll not quite be proficient at them. ;o)

♥~♥ Tracey ♥~♥ said...

The bag rocks, and I so wish I could come hang with you all in July. I already am booked to vacation in Maine!

Love the profoundness of the post ;0)
