TTUT-Pig Hunts and Girl’s Nights

 People thought I was crazy because I thought I saw a pig! -Andy, True Blood

  • Last week Match took me on my first wild pig hunting trip. 
  • We didn’t catch anything and I was secretly relieved. I was a trooper because it was over 100 degrees outside, and my boots were killing my feet. I was so glad when we called it a day. I think I wouldn’t mind hunting again in cooler weather. It’s sort of like quiet hiking. 😉

  • Friday was my birthday and girl’s night out. I had such a blast with Hippy Chick and Walking Buddy.
  • We did a little bar hopping, having drinks and appetizers at each place. We finished at Chevy’s, where they had the wait staff sing to me and sombrero’d my head. 🙂 It was a great way to celebrate my 29th year, and I can’t wait for the next girl’s night out. 

  • Last weekend Hippy Chick and I took Baby Hippy to a town just over the hill, near the water to escape the heat. We enjoyed wonderful coastal breezes and cool temps. Made me very excited for Fall!
  • That night we had dinner with her cousin, where I ended up having a heart to heart with her about the baby she lost. We bonded instantly. It’s amazing how people come into your life. I think we both needed to talk about our angel babies, and I’m glad we found each other.
  • I’m very excited to start working on Halloween decorations for the house. I promised Match I would wait til Fall officially starts, which is this Saturday. So I’m cracking out the boxes then!

    OMG! You went on a pig hunt? I couldn’t kill anything except a snake….unless something was about to eat me. Then I may be able to pull the trigger. M loves to hunt but I’m not into it. He made me shoot a gun once though. I wasn’t a fan.

    I’m so glad you had such a good time for your birthday. I will cut off my right arm (or maybe my left) for a margarita or a Captain and Coke but it will be worth the wait, right?

    These last 4 months I have gotten SOOOO BIG! He’s almost 3 pounds. I can’t believe it! I’m starting to get excited and nervous!

    I have all my Halloween decorations ready to set out but they aren’t out yet. I guess I could start a little early….



    I have NEVER heard of pig hunting but you looked great all suited up. I’m with you on the love of quiet hikes. Yummy Margs and you looked like you were having so much fun. happy belated birthday. I’m sorry about your angel baby but glad you were brought together with someone who “knows”.

    Have a great week!

    I’ve actually been wild boar hunting (guess that’s the same right?), although honestly, I spent most of my time at the campsite. I dreamed of those little husked creatures though. Also, not sure if you’ve heard of it, but there’s a book called Heaven is for Read, about a little boy’s experiences on his death bed. When the boy wakes up, he’s able to tell his parents about a child they lost (that he never knew about), that he met. I won’t go into all the details, but it was pretty powerful stuff. Having lost 2 babies of my own, it gave me a huge sense of peace. Happy belated birthday~


    hog hunting… hmmmm. yeah i don’t think i would have been able to do that… but i’m glad you gave it a whirl for match.

    the birthday celebration sounds fantastic!!! you gotta love a girls night out. you look so happy too!!

    you’re a good sport… i’ve been working on halloween cards for weeks already, hahaha… and i already hung up my pumpkin decoration on my door, hahaha. can you tell i’m secretly hoping for fall?! i can’t wait to see what you come up for your decorations 🙂

    You are one brave chica!! What would you have done if you’d actually shot one!? Would match make you clean it up? Oh gross… I prefer to buy my bacon already packaged in strips at the store. ;o)

    You look adorable in that sombrero! I’m so glad you had a good birthday. You deserve it! One more year until we’re in our thirties!!!


    You look so happy in the sombrero pic!! I love it!
    PS I had a dream about you last night…you had painted a votive jar with a picture of Roo from Pooh.


    Love the pic of you in the sombrero. Adorable 🙂 There is nothing like a good girls’ night out and I hope you had a very happy birthday!

    Also grateful that Hippie Chick’s cousin came in to your life so you could bond over this… I imagine getting your story out and meeting similar mommies is very cathartic.

    Hope you have something exciting planned for the weekend. I’m getting SO pumped for the fall! XOXO

    and for whatever reason, this is the only link that works 🙁 I’ll have to try again later. WAAA!!! I miss your blog!


    Wow. That is something (wild pig hunting) I can say I will probably never do. So glad you enjoyed it! I have experienced girls night out however :). There really isn’t anything a good GNO cannot fix!
