Esperanza Bonanza

Last night was interesting. I was having a bad day and wasn’t feeling like cooking so Jared and I set out to find something “new” to eat for dinner. I don’t know about ya’ll but whenever Jared and I are driving we always think of new places to eat and make a mental note of it however when the time comes to actually try out the new places we can never remember the restaturants. So we set out on Poplar heading east and ended up at “Humdingers”. Let me just say it was AMAZING. We got the Piri Piri shrimp as an appetizer and it was YUMMY. Jared got the 3 Taco Combo and I got the Greek salad. Everything was great. Humdingers is definitely going to be added to my list of Favorites!

While we’re eating Jimmy’s boss calls and invites him to a BBQ Fest in West Memphis. So we decided what the heck let’s go. We ran home let Mable out, changed and were on our way. Little did we know this “BBQ Fest” was the Esperanza Bonanza! It was like a mini Mid South Fair with a BBQ competition on the side. The only thing I will say is that there was lots of good people watching. Mullets everywhere! I now know that the teenage population of Marion Arkansas keeps Holister in business and I did spot the most interesting Kate Goselin Mullet! I didn’t get my camera out quick enough but let’s just say there were blond spikes and a little mullet ponytail. I just wonder what her hairdresser was thinking when she did that to that poor woman! I felt very classy last night! Ha!

The people we were going to see were a client of Jared’s. They were so nice. They had a blue grass band playing and dirty underwear hanging from the ceiling! (It was staged…I hope!) We ate crawfish and the boys drank some keg beer. All in all it was a fun night! Went to bed a little late and am guzzling coffee as I type! Now I can mark attending the Marion Arkansas Esperanza Bonanza off my bucket list!

Here are a few pics from the night:

The crawfish pile. Not sure if I'll eat them again. It was alot of work!

It wouldn't be a blog post without some pictures of Sweet Mable. She's 15 weeks old today and weighs a little over 30 lbs. She started puppy school last week and is definitely the teacher's pet. She is very "advanced"! Jared and I are so proud.

This Mable and Mommy snoozing on the living room floor. When she is really tired she snuggles so good!
