Joe’s Crab Shack

Finally I have a little free time to blog! Gotta love weekend posts that no one reads anyway. But that might make my MIL happy, not that she knows about this blog. But first, let’s get the running stuff out of the way.

Thursday night, I went to the gym to do a tempo run on the treadmill. Just beat the storm.

I did 6.3 miles in 60 minutes that felt pretty good.

  • Mile 1: 10:00
  • Mile 2: 9:41
  • Mile 3: 9:23
  • Mile 4: 9:05
  • Mile 5: 1/2 8:49 – 1/2 8:57
  • Mile 6+: 1/2 9:41 – 1/2 9:23

I tested out my new running shorts. They are a win.

I also tested out some new ear buds I bought the other day.

The regular iPod buds don’t stay in my ears. And the headphones I have that I love make me look like a tool.

The new ones fit inside your ear so they stay in pretty well. I had to adjust them a few times, but a few times in a full hour of running isn’t too bad. Have any of you used these type of ear buds before? It’s like that cloudy hearing you get when your on a plane that’s landing. You can hear your breathing and footsteps. It’s super annoying. I suppose I could try cranking the volume next time, but I also want to be able to hear when I’m 40. So, the search for headphones that I love and make me look like a supermodel continues.

Once I find these, I’m getting them.

Now on to yesterday.

The hubs and I went to a belated Father’s Day lunch with the FIL and MIL.

Blurry is as good as it’s gonna get with this one.

We ended up at Joe’s Crab Shack, which none of us had been to before.

The interior was fun. There was a lot of fishing type stuff hanging on the walls and from the ceiling. You could even read cartoons and sayings on the tables. This one made me giggle like a 2-year old.

(Had to fix the speech bubble cuz it was barely legible.)

Hubs and I have been wanting to replace the light fixture by our front door with something nicer for awhile now. We were super excited when we found the perfect one.

For lunch, hubs ordered the Classic Steam Pot. This reminded us of our friend Steve’s cooking. He’s awesome at making these low country boils, so hubs couldn’t pass it up. I’m getting that bad boy next time because it looked delicious.

I had the blackened mahi sandwich with hush puppies and fries. Only the healthy stuff for this girl.

Before our food came out, our waitress, Rebecca, put a bib on the hubs. He REFUSED to let me take a picture of him in it. Rude.

That’s when I found out something magical. Like, dwarfs and unicorns frolicking under a rainbow magical…

My MIL will pose with anything.

How can I have known this woman for 9 years and just found this out? I think a wonderland of photo opportunity has just opened itself to me. She told me to “delete the bad ones.”          Yes.       I’ll go ahead and do that. Or not.

I didn’t leave her out in the cold though. I did my own share of posing.

Eating a hush puppy held by a crab claw. I can go ahead and check THAT off the bucket list.

Lunch just isn’t lunch unless you play with your husband’s food. (Note to wives everywhere: Husbands love this.)

This morning, I did a 12 mile run with my running group. But I’ll leave that for another post.

Do you get along with your significant other’s parents?

  1. Hahaha that pic is great! So awesome that you get along with the ILs.

    Bf’s mom moved into our house last year for 10 months – and we had only met once before! It wasn’t too bad (except when she tried to force her religious beliefs on me…and told me I needed to stop running bc it isn’t healthy) until his brother & 2 yr old daughter moved in too. Wayyy too much for me to handle. Privacy? Had no idea what that was. Glad those days are over…

  2. My husbands family lives across the country in Mississippi…. when I met them 2 years ago I thought they were from another planet. The accents, the racism, the mentality that cracking a beer while driving down the highway is perfectly acceptable completely turned me off. We haven’t gone back to Mississippi since and are moving to Germany in about 2 months. He might go back to visit before we leave but I plan on staying far, far away.

  3. Yep we both get along great with our inlaws – husband and i have been together for 10 years total so everyone is definately family 🙂

    I use these and I swear they are the only ones that stay in my ears and have good sound quality. They are cheap on amazon too.

    Love the pics – looks like a great restaurant. Thank god I get along with my in laws. Yours seriously seem like fun though, and I’m assuming they don’t read your blog. Or, if they are like my in laws, have any idea what a blog is.

  5. I think you pretty much own a species when you not only eat it, but when you use its appendage as a utensil for hush puppies.

  6. I am reading this weekend. And I think I have a crush on your MIL. Mega cool points for this one.

    I get along with my in-laws. As in, I find them super annoying, but they don’t know and still love me. 🙂

    I’ve got freaky tiny ears, which used to doom me to those horrible over the ear things because everything else would pop out of my ears – until I found Yurbuds at a marathon expo. They’re silicone covers that go over the iPod earbuds and make them stay put. They made me break the “nothing new on marathon day” rule, they were that good.
