Welcome to our blog! We are newly married and living in Dallas, TX. I am a middle school math teacher and cheer sponsor. Mason works in Oil & Gas. We both graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and had the absolute best time in college and are still having a blast as newlyweds! Please join us on our journey during our first year of marriage!
So last night, Mason and I were getting ready to go out to dinner with friends when suddenly there was a knock on our door. When we opened the door, no one was there but there was a big box sitting on our doorstep! Neither one of us were expecting anything so we had no clue what it might be. The return address on the box said that the package was from Louisiana, where Mason oversees a lot of drilling sites for work, so he figured it was some type of holiday gift from one of the companies he does business with. Well you have never seen two people tear into a box with as much excitement as we did, because what were we hoping would be inside??? Is it?? Could it be?? A turkey!?!?! YES!!!! Inside the box was a TURDUCKEN!!! A turducken is a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey with a layer of cornbread dressing and pork stuffing in between each bird! It was sent to us from Herbert's Specialty Meats located in Maurice, LA. According to their website, they are the inventors of the turducken. David, who hosted us when we were in Lafayette and took us to the LSU game a few weeks ago, sent the turkey to us... so sweet! I have never tried one before but have always wanted to. I mean how freaking weird is it that yesterday I was blog pouting about not getting a turkey and then low and behold a bird in a box shows up on our doorstep that very night! It's a Thanksgiving Miracle! :) Mase and I are going to wait to cook it when we get back from our vacation, so I'll have to let you know how it is! I have never cooked a turkey before...should be interesting! ;)
