From the field to the store.....WATERMELON SEASON!

With the 4th of July coming up I hope all of you are stocking up on your Farm-Wey Southern Sweet Watermelons (they came from our farm!). I just wanted to show you how the watermelons go from the field to your home!

Here are the stacked bins of watermelons on our floor waiting to get picked up by one of the chain stores (Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, Sams, Harris Teeter, Publix, or Kroger).
Once they are picked in the field they bring them to the packing shed and unload them on this belt.

From there, people on the line "grade" them. They determine what size they are, if they are good enough to go to stores, place stickers on them, and put them in boxes. The bad ones go bye bye here!

Once the box is full the fork lift drivers pick them up and stack them according to what size they are. You have 29's, 36's, 45's , and 60's. The smaller the number, the bigger that watermelon. 29's are seeded and the rest are seedless.

Now they wait to be picked up, delivered to the store, and taken home by YOU!

Hope you have enjoyed some sweet Georgia Watermelon this season! Happy 4th!

Why did I go to the beach with a Model??

My weekend was spent with a great friend in St. Simons. We had a blast just relaxing, eating, and catching up. Here was our view for 2 days. This is what I had to lay beside for 2 days... She has 2 kids and still has the perfect body! What was I thinking going to the beach with her at 23 weeks pregnant?

Each day we would eat breakfast and then go to Larry's Giant Subs and pick up lunch. We would pack everything up and take it to the beach. We sat on the beach ALL day and caught up. It has been a year and a half since we have seen each other so we had plenty of talking to do! The first night we went to catch 228. The second night we went to CrabDaddy's and enjoyed it so much we went back Sunday night too. We had the sauteed scallops for appetizer, their amazing bread and salad, split the shrimp and grits, and then split the bread pudding (both nights). It was amazing! This is us at dinner.

Here is a belly pic! I am 23 weeks pregnant (5 months 3 weeks). This baby is moving ALL the time and it is so awesome to feel a little human inside of you. I have gained 23 pounds....yeah I am a fatty but not much I can do about it now!! I will just be psycho mom when this baby gets here.

Hope you all have a great week!

But I am going to rock it out because I can! Here are some celebrity preggos in bikinis. Brit Brit and Jayden and Preston...
