All the Eggs in my Basket

So, you're probably all going to think this post is ridiculous. But I was so excited last night when we found this HUGE egg at the barn!

OK, so I know it doesn't look that huge to you.But trust me, it is. I can prove it. The egg on the left is one of the regular farm eggs. If you weight it on the scale versus a "large" or "extra large" egg bought in the grocery, our eggs are equal or a little bigger. The chickens are free range, so they just naturally make larger eggs. 

Here's the smaller sized egg on our cute little antique scale. It's registering at a little over 29 oz, which would be "Extra Large" in the grocery.

Here's the huge egg- it just maxes out the scale. We didn't have anything else to weight it on, or I totally would have.

I know I'm SO nerdy, but for some reason this just fascinates me! I was so excited last night. 
When I was a kid, Sally made us learn all about the eggs and the chickens, so I guess it stuck.
I'm pretty sure it has a double yolk. I may cook it tonight- if I do I'll let you know!

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
