Yesterday I Smelled Like Fish...


True story! =) This is because I went offshore fishing! I love going offshore. It is beautiful and calm (sometimes; I won't go if it isn't). J and I haven't been able to make it offshore in about a year. We had a WONDERFUL day of fishing -- which would have been better had we been able to keep more of the fish we caught.  Marc, Doug, my dad, J and Christy went also -- it was Christy's first trip and I am SO happy that it was so calm!
 
 
On the trip out to the fish, J spent time getting the rods and reels ready and making sure everyone knew how to use the reels.
    
I was just excited lol =)
All-in-all we ended up catching 5-6 keeper Red Snapper, 2 grouper and at least 10 Black Sea bass -- all that we had to throw back due to restrictions.  
   
 
We were able to keep a few fish that we caught = 4 Trigger fish and a big Mangrove Snapper =)
  
I caught one of the Grouper and it was my first EVER! I was pretty excited =)
It was such a great time for multiple reasons - but I do love being able to spend time with my friends and family!
 
Other than that, J was VERY sick on Friday night so I went to the bar to sing without him so he could rest. Larry and I had 2 new songs: Don't Stop Believin' and Bring Me to Life.  I am still trying to figure out how to share our music with you -- I will soon, promise!
Saturday, I spent the morning cleaning while J worked. I also worked on some jewelry for a lovely bride-to-be.  Thankfully she LOVES the pieces.  Here is just a sneak peek of one set NEARLY complete -- she has the chains for the necklace charm.

Jessica at Stilettos & a Fishing Pole asked me to guest blog for her!! She is a newly engaged bride-to-be and she has decided to host a series of guest posts discussing all things to do with wedding; "Marry Me, Monday".  Check her out! She is amazing and beautiful and such a sweet girl!

So do you/your family have a boat, or do you have to rent one to go out? Those to me looked like some big fish but I'm used to what we have around here.. .LOL

I am so jealous you are out in the sunshine! It has been snowing here like crazy and its freezing! I scheduled this weekend for matt and I to go to my family cabin to get out of town for a few days and I am not sure we will even be able to get there because of the ice and snow :(

I wish I was somewhere warm!!

I like to fish too, but not deep-sea! I'm terrified of the ocean!

That jewelry is beautiful!
