    I am so glad I am in Houston so I can get some decent seafood! You are making me hungry and I already ate today. I will find myself another good cajun restaurant and eat my little heart out! Watch out gurl!

    Your grandma looks great! I am glad you get to spend time with her! Ian looks very happy with his food! I wish I was there with you two!

    The rebuilding is going slowly but I am glad to see some progress for your grandma. I know that feels really good. Is this the grandma with the seafood dressing?

    Have Fun!

    You and my mom’s best friend…she does the same thing…I think she is allergic to seafood period, but that will not stop her…she downs Benadryl like it’s an appetizer, lol. I so want to go to a crawfish boil now.

    The pic of the home you grew up in wow…and your HS, and Grandmother’s home…glad she is able to rebuild.
    The people living in tents under the canal bridge…there is no excuse. Glad you only choked up twice…I am sitting here about to choke up myself, and I am only looking at pics.
