I am so full!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I won tickets to an event from answering questions on face book. Our town has a summer long marketing campaign called "eat Lafayette" The kick off party was tonight. 73 local restaurants come together and promote eating locally. So they had this party tonight from 5:30- 7:30.
WE got there right at 5:30.There were probably 30 different booths set up with food samplings.
I did not sample them all but I did eat a lot.
There were crab cakes and crawfish enchiladas, stuffed mushrooms, BBQ ribs, tabouli, hummus, duck and sausage gumbo, pasteries, mahi mahi mango nachos, seafood crepes. WE ate for an hour. Needless to say I am very full. Uncomfortably full and it is 3 hours later and I am still full!
There were free alcoholic beverages there but I stayed away from those majitos....
I wore my new dress that I bought from khols on sunday. (I hate shopping but felt like I needed new clothes for our vacation so I had 2 gift cards left over from christmas, dress barn and khols) It was form fitting and I looked good in it, while I held my stomach in. By the end of the evening there was not any ability to hold my stomach in...so I looked pregnant. OH well.
It was delicious food. Fun for hubby and I and it was free!
22 days but who is counting? emoticon

thank you for reading my blog!

    To make hay while the sun shines means, to take advantage of an opportunity when the opportunity presents itself. Eat while there is free gourmet food! If you dn't bale the hay when it's sunny, it might rain later and then you can't.

    That sounds like SO much FUN!!! I bet prejeans, bluedog, don's and every great restaurant in the city was represented (I miss those places *le sigh). That was a great idea to wear a slim-fitting dress & a HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE for skipping the FREE alcohol! That's amazing!
But, um, what I really want to know is... when are they doing this again, so I can have a go at those free tickets?? emoticon

    Sounds fabulous!
I have really come to dislike that stuffed feeling!
Wearing a slim-fitting dress was a good idea.
