The Monday Mess

Pig Roast 2014 finally arrived and I'm so excited to share some of my favorites from our annual backyard BBQ (with our Blacksburg locals). I should warn you that if you were looking for a scaled up, classy version of a backyard BBQ, you will need to keep looking. :) A couple things I learned at Pig Roast 2014:

  • Alex is TERRIFIED of small children. He tucked his tail between his legs and quivered as a three-year-old-sweetheart delightfully ran in tow attempting to pat him on the head. Not exactly guard dog material!
  • Our house is now referred to as "Chateau Bulloss" and our sun room is the "Stone Lounge" for irony, lol.
  • 149 pound pigs can feed an army... also a lot of friends AND probably everyone they have ever met. We will be freezing a lot of meat, which suits us just fine considering we like BBQ year round!
  • You literally cannot rain on our parade... because we will just move the party inside! A sudden downpour definitely took us all by surprise but the party lived on.

A few favs:

The early morning crowd (we started our day at 8am!)...

This is as close as Alex dared to get to the dangerous, bottle wielding toddler...

Did I mention we had a who-can-dress-most-like-a-redneck competition?? I don't think we ever declared a winner......

Who needs sleeves on a Garth Brooks T?

So glad the competition made it to the front yard...

We got rained out for all of 5 minutes... we didn't end the night here but this is where I put down the camera and relaxed.
