Shrimp Boilin' Fun

Every time my family gets together we have a Shrimp Boil, and we always do one on Christmas Eve! Even though we aren't from the South, it's kind of become a family tradition of ours (unless Southern Colorado counts! Ha!) It was introduced to my parents by a family in their ward that was from New Orleans. Bottom line, it's dang good food and it's fun!

Momma Mort (my mom) is in town this weekend, so we decided to have a Shrimp Boil with some friends (I thought'd it would be good for me to learn as well). It was delish!!!

Chicken, Shrimp, Potatoes, Corn, Onions and Dippin Sauce. Yes, you actually just dump all of the food on the table and dig in! Finger-food style!

Todd and appears Cory isn't enjoying it, but he really loved it. What guy wouldn't?

After eating ourselves sick we had to play some Wii Fit to work it all off. It's hilarious to play with first timers and in big groups. We laughed so much.

Rob doing the Ski Jump. He's actually a ski instructor.....but not such a good ski jumper on the Wii!

Thanks everyone for coming over and thanks Mom for the DELICIOUS Shrimp Boil. I now know how to prepare this, so be ready for some more Denney Shrimp Boils to come!!! I'll post the recipe and instructions, it's really quite easy!

Okay, I have to confess.....I only lasted 1 month without the Diet Coke and Diet Dr. Pepper (my new year's resolution was to last an entire year....crap). I caved and treated myself to a soda on my birthday. I definitely don't drink it as often, but every once and a while I still get the craving to sip down the cold bubblies. Just had to get it off my chest....whew!

David After Dentist

So Brett isn't much of a blogger, but he does follow the blog,, written by a guy that posts every news story, youtube video, pictures, etc, that all men will love. He's always chuckling while he's checking it out so I have to see what's so funny. It's actually got some great content and has some hilarious the one you just watched! Poor little guy.

Meet My Joe Dirt

Over the weekend Brett and I went to the Monster Truck Jam. Brett insisted we dress up.

My Joe Dirt

The real Joe Dirt

And then there was this guy....Inigo Montoya?? (The Princess Bride)

So you tell me, who wears it best??? My Joe Dirt, the Real Joe Dirt, or Inigo Montoya?

Some more pics from the night....

We went with a bunch of friends who dressed up as well! I can't believe how excited the guys got....standing up, high fiving, screaming, cheering, going nuts!!! I'm sure we will all be back next year!

My Dilemma

I LOVE to do this.....

and I absolutely LOVE things like this......

and.....I GET NOWHERE!!!

Solution??? I try to kick the sweets and desserts, and I am sooo terrible at it. My mother is the queen of baking treats, my in laws make the best treats, and I love to bake treats. Crap.

My friend has a blog titled, "Life's Short, Eat Dessert." Amen sister, Amen. Guess I'll just keep running, and keep eating treats, and keep getting nowhere.

Hey Family and Friends!!! Brett's good friend, Ben Truman, is a very talented singer (he sang at our wedding for those of you that were there). Him and his brother are competing in a mormon music artist contest. They need to finish in the top 4 by mid-February. If you visit the link below you can vote (you will have to create an account first), and you can vote once a day! We think he's pretty dang good!!! Check it out for yourselves, and if you think he is as good as we do, pass this along to anyone you think will vote for him too! Thanks!

Lately we have been.....

Spending time with FAMILY! It's been fun to have Ryan and Laura back in Utah and spending time with their kids.

This is little miss Alex Jane Denney, born on Jan 19th. She's so precious.

Spending time with FRIENDS! A bunch of friends got together this week for Rob Brill's birthday!Traci, Anna, Jayci....I love these girls! I feel like I never see them anymore:) It was nice to visit. By the way, Traci is engaged--getting married next month!!! So of course we had a BRIDAL SHOWER!!!!
The theme of the party was "Fashion and Shopping"
Traci pretending to be a rock star....part of a game we played.
And the fun stuff....woo hoo!
Brett took advantage of the night and planned a halo party with his friends. He was thrilled about his halo date. He hasn't shown the same excitement for any of the recent dates we have been on. Guess he was needing some man-time.
