I AM NOT SORRY…. for being me

I AM NOT SORRY… for being me. What does that mean you ask?

I am not sorry for:

  • Being the best Mom that I know how to be; having open and honest communication with my son
  • Being a hopeless romantic; loving with my entire heart and putting my all into my relationsship
  • Working hard to have the things that we need and want but not always being in love with having to go to work
  • Standing up for the things that I believe are correct
  • Wanting a new “life experience” & hoping to move to the West Coast
  • Loving my family but knowing that it is time to “live” for me
  • For doing 90% of my shopping at thrift stores and online boutiques & closet sales –  I just cannot seem to want to pay full price for clothing and accessories. You just get so  much more for your money
  • For being ME – I have come to love myself which allows me to love unconditionally

Tonight I had a movie date with my son to see Penguins of Madagascar. I wanted to be comfortable and relaxed so I opted for a graphic sweatshirt & jeans with the black jacket and silver scarf. The movie was great. Below are options on styling the outfit for a easy, breezy early evening outing.

Food Love: Crab – Cakes, Legs, Whole, Soup – How Ever!

Can I just tell you that I LOVE CRAB! I could eat crab all day, every day and NEVER get tired of it. This is one great thing about living in Maryland – there is no shortage of crab! Every time I think about moving to the west coast I cringe at the thought of no more crab.

Since I love crab so much I finally decided it was time that I learned how to make crab cakes and thanks to my fiancee’s mom, I now have it nailed down and can make them any time we want!

Side bar: What is the true plural of crab? Is it crab or crabs? I have not quite figured this out yet and have searched in many dictionaries. This came up from watching Deadliest Catch – it seemed that they never said crabs.

Whole crabs

My truest love of crab is the whole blue crab! I love the picking to get what some people call “that little bit of meat”. That is my favorite form and with my special “crab dip”, it is ON!

Crab soup

I have recently become fond of lump crab soup from a DC Food Truck, Feelin Crabby. Their soup is to die for! I literally stalk the truck just to get to soup. The crab slider are greatness but the soup….. WOW.

crab legs

Crab legs are much meatier than the whole crab and I like them as well. As you can see, I like crab(s) any way that I can get them. My favorite place to get crab legs or whole crab(s) is the DC Warf.

If you are in the DMV, what is your favorite place to get crab(s)?
