Oyster Fest Retrospective

The Urbanna Oyster Fest was this past weekend.
Some of you may have heard that I was going to spend a weekend in Virginia.
I think I mentioned it last week.
It was awesome.
We learned a whole bunch of things.
The oysters' predators...
They had lots of rules in Urbanna.
We tried to follow them.
Others? Notsomuch.
CBW had a thing for this oyster.
I think it was mutual.
Big Hair Envy and CBW were lovely hostesses.
We had a great hangout spot at BHE's dad's house.
We also had some adult beverages.
Bud likes to call BHE "Big Head."
I think that's funny.
She has lots of attributes.
And a big head is not among them.
More rules.
I ate lots of barbecue.
Noe Noe and her high falutin' teefs hitched a ride on the hillbilly bus.
It was funny.
Take my word for it.
Oh look what we have here.
CBW got back in the parade...
Dancin' with a very happy Shriner.

A pearl.

Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for being unshellfish and sharing with all of us. ;)

Burning Questions:
1. Where are THE BOOTS??
2. Did you wear Hillbilly Teeth?
3. Did you actually eat an oyster?
4. Did you or did you not send anonymous messages to Daryl's phone?

Bwahahahahaahah!! Literally lmao :) Fun times !!

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

I am so glad there are not any laws against having this much fun!

big hair envy said...

I don't know which one made me laugh more....CBW spreadin' the love, or NNG flashing that hillbilly smile!!! Bwahahahaha!

Wait a minute. It may have been the wine that made me laugh more...

I wish I could've been there. I didn't think traveling with the toddlers was a good idea, or legal ;0)

Deb said...

Sooo...where did the photos come from? I thought your camera died this weekend. And, yeah...where are the red boots? Did you wear them? Did your feet hurt? Did you wear socks with them?
Looks like a fun time was had by all.

Country Girl said...

So much fun. Wish I were there. And welcome home!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Dear Lord.

OK, I don't know who that woman was running around dancing with elderly shriners, but that Noe Noe Girl is the funniest thing I've seen in many a day unless you count the belly button pictures I just saw....

THANK YOU!! for coming down here and putting up with our crazy selves. Good times.

abb said...

Yup, a pear indeed! (sigh)

When will the jealousy end? You guys had way too much fun.....I'm in next year for sure.

Daryl said...

Oh you didnt post the shot of CBW planting a wet one on that oyster ... now if I could only find a way to post those voice mail messages .. ummm

And as others have asked .. where are those boot shots? Oh wait, did you do shots out of the boots or just wear them? ;-)
