I went to Maryland a few weeks ago.  I may have chosen Austin as my forever home, but I'll always be from Maryland.

This means several things.

1.  On any given day, I could lapse and pronounce the word "water" as if it's spelled "wooder."
2.  I will not eat a crab cake anywhere other than the Delmarva peninsula.
3.  I know what I am talking about when I say "Delmarva peninsula."
4.  I'm an Orioles fan.
5.  When the occasion presents itself, I do enjoy scrapple.
6.  I know what I'm talking about when I say "scrapple."
7.  I don't think it's weird to call everyone "hon."

I said I would take pictures while I was in Maryland.  I didn't, really.  But I did take a few pictures as proof of my seafood bender, and also a few flashback snapshots I found while at my parents' house.

Clockwise from top left:
I played field hockey, which is also a very Maryland thing to do.  I played badly.
Crab cake sammich.
My adorable mom as a bridesmaid in my aunt's wedding.  (That's not my dad.)
The best oysters I've ever had. Not even joking.  
Hope somebody calls you hon today.

Talk later,
Heather

  2. I had never really made the connection between "hon" and Maryland, but it is all coming together now!

  3. Awesome. I really need to go up there, with a tour guide of course! And thanks for telling me what scrapple is. And also? That's weird.

  4. Was waiting for these photos! It was an awesome trip to MD. Can't remember when we have had so much seafood!
