eat, drink, and be merry!

tonight we hosted "the biggest loser" party at our house. jay was announced the winner a couple of weeks ago and decided to throw a buffet party with his winnings. everyone brought a yummy dish as well, and we got our eat on! the party started at 2:30pm so that we could all eat and drink while watching the SEC championship game (alabama vs. florida). the table and drinks were set, and our eyes were definitely bigger than our stomachs. whew! the menu consisted of chicken wings, beer brats, green bean casserole, pork tenderloins, baked beans, chips and dip, mac-n-cheese, hamburgers, a huge loaf 4cheese garlic bread, mitchelle's famous "mitchili," and the best desserts that ever touched my mouth. here is a picture of the spread...and this was not even all of it. i feel ten pounds heavier just looking at it. =P
the kids played while we all watched the game, talked, and fed our faces. it's funny how when the kids were in the man cave, you could hear the men telling them to go see mommy upstairs while of course, we were telling them to stay downstairs with daddy. hehe. luckily for the men though, they did spend most of the time upstairs and away from their football viewing pleasure. after the game was over with, the bama fans continued to drink themselves under the table due to their state of acute depression. hey, it happens. ;) then the moms headed downstairs to check up on the guys and make sure that the kids were still alive. we ended up in the guest bedroom and came up with the BEST. IDEA. EVER...


for you see, nonluciddrivel had been "in her cups" all day. she is a photographer, and the best. what's better than a drunk photog with funny ridiculous ideas? i'd say absolutely nothing. NLD suggested a photo shoot for jaydoug since he was the "biggest loser" winner. sort of like a pageantry picture. you know the ones...the glamor shots of the 80s. yes, it was perfect. of course jaydoug hammed it up for the camera. he's a frat boy...he's use to this kind of thing. well us wives were getting a kick out of this. it was hysterical! once jaydoug's corneas were burning from the flashes of the camera, we got even a better idea. all it took was rapidly searching through the house for some of the mabster's toys, and we came up with this...hahahaha!!! my side is still sore from laughing SOOO hard (but hey, at least i burned off some calories)!! thank god everyone had been in their cups all day or else i don't think this picture would have ever been captured. my god. this is some good stuff. the guys were cracking me up! there's no male bonding better than a group pic with your little girl's accessories as your own. overall, CONGRATS JAYDOUG, you'll always be a winner in my eyes!! we're so proud of you, way to shine my big bright star!! =P
