Lookit the shark attack sucker! Yup, this is a lollipop that looks like a shark. It is blueberry flavored.
Shall I get this for Aaron so he can feel as if he had his revenge?
(By the way, I’ve been SUPER sick for over a week now. Working on writing about that as soon as I get out from under the butt-load of Empire posts I need to get finished.)
Another year has gone by and Aaron has managed to not get himself bitten by a shark! Oh yes, and he also survived that exact thing five years ago on October 29th. In honor of that, ever since the one year anniversary, we invite our friends over, drink shark-themed beers, and chow down on red velvet cupcakes to celebrate Aaron still being alive.
Speaking of the cupcakes, how cute are those cupcake wrappers that I found!? They’re totally made for Halloween, but they were too perfect not to purchase for a shark attack party.

So I got an email from another Flickr member, Madam Bizarro with the subject “stolen photo” which read:
Megan–you might wanna bust this guy.
[insert now defunct link to a photo in Lightko Studio's facebook portfolio]
Took one of your photos of Aaron’s bite and claimed it is his special effects make-up. Yeah, dude, I guess it DOES look real, since it IS.
And sure enough, I clicked over and saw this: (WARNING: If you don’t want to see the inside of my husband’s leg, do NOT read any further.)
I need to do a LOT of blogging. I have posts and posts in mind:
* The life-changing salad.
* A trip to the farm. (Maybe those can be combined…)
* My Nerdy 30 highlights
* Something I started writing about High School and then stopped.
* Other things
So as I start to get busy and get writing, here is something fun to tide you over. It’s from my recent trip to Texas to visit my father.
Here is a picture of a restaurant on Lake Granbury:
Notice anything familiar in this photo?
Here’s let me zoom in:
I absolutely LOVE that shark week always falls on my birthday week. In honor of shark week I posted this piece of awesomeness on Offbeat Bride. And here is a picture of baby Aaron wearing the shark robe I gave him…
And here is a peak at the earrings I bought as a birthday present for myself:
These earrings by Rockabella Jewels are on sale for shark week!
And I am watching a Shark Week program that’s narrated by Malcolm McDowell. Can it get any better than this?
A friend of mind sent me this picture on facebook…
With the comment, “You’ll be happy to know my buddy is getting a shark anatomy tattoo – similar to this but more creative.”
And yes, it actually did make me happy to know that.
Do you ever have those unusually awesome days and think, “today should’ve been my birthday.” I have those every now and then. Yesterday was one of them…
Aaron and I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific on Monday for a late night screening of a Shark Week program about the Greenland Shark. It was such a good time and something we rarely do, public gatherings and the like. At one point some kid nearby did something annoying and i jokingly complained and Aaron said, ‘hey, you’re the one that wanted to go out in public.” So since it was such a rare occasion, I thought I’d take a video to try and capture the moment in time…
A year ago today (October 29th) Aaron was attacked by a tiger shark in Wailea Beach, Maui and survived! In honor of the attackiversary I decided to throw Aaron a party! My friend Coco and I made him a cake and invited a bunch of our friends over to celebrate.
As for the cake, we thought it would be funny to make one in the shape of a shark out of red velvet cake so that it would be like you were eating a shark. But that was too hard and so we ended up with this.
Then we had a fun shark attack photo shoot…
Then it was just drinks and hanging out with everyone taking a moment to enjoy the fact that Aaron didn’t die a year ago today.
HAPPY ATTACKIVERSARY TO MY DARLING HUSBAND!!!
My friend Drew wrote an article about our little run-in with a shark that resulted in us getting engaged…
On my other blog “misadventures in wedding planning” I post some of the random emails I get from my future sister-in-law in postings I like to call MichellE-mail. But this last e-mail from her was not wedding related necessarily (we have a turtle and shark theme for our wedding), never the less, it was AWESOME and I had to share it with you.
More turtle and shark…..
I’m either sicker than I thought and hallucinating, or….
I’m pretty sure the turtle is a white guy. He just can’t dance.
