Take heed all dudes considering gifts that one might bring to the house of a girlfriend.

Dear Sassy’s lacrosse playing/lifeguard cute-as-a button boyfriend,


I would first like to give you credit for finding this girl who has a unique combination of spunk, athleticism, humor and spirit. Sure, we’ve had our moments, like this and this and this and who could forget THIS; but all in all I would give my life for her in a heartbeat, and am very protective of her heart.


And while I’ve only met you several times, I have heard enough about you to realize that it appears that she is just as lucky to have found you. (She's a bit gun shy. As you might know. )



But, it wasn’t until today when I noticed what you brought with you on this surprise two-day visit.



Gorgeous, bright orange, incredible….Maryland Steamed Crabs. (Oh. My. God.)



Yeah, you’ve already won over the daughter’s heart.




And with that BRILLIANT move- you have officially won over the mother. Frankly, you are IN LIKE FLYNN.



But don’t ask what that means, cause that will only cross out the incredible gains you made with the crabs. (They are such babies, aren't they???)




Now quick, pass me the buttah.






(And those particular kinds of crabs are the only ones welcome in this house. P.S.)

And I thought I was lucky my girl did not have a serious boyfriend yet. I had NO IDEA crab and garlic butter could be a perk!

Cora said...

That boy is a keeper. Don't let her let him go.

ChiTown Girl said...

You're probably the first mom in history to be happy that her daughter's boyfriend gave her crabs!

Vodka Mom said...

I KNOW!! The irony is NOT lost on me.




Crabs. They're what's for dinner.

Mrs. E said...

A guys gotta be brave to tangle with you--he could end up in the blog! Sounds like a keeper!

ReadyOrNot said...

Wow, if a guy brought me steamed crabs, I would totally marry him, look out! Does he have a cute single uncle???

Brian Miller said...

Gigi said...

Well played, boyfriend. Well played.

Irish Gumbo said...

What Gigi said. I live in Maryland, even, and no one brings me crabs! (mope)

G said...

Nice.

Hopefully when my daughter becomes the age of yours, she'll find someone just like that.

That Janie Girl said...

He has passed first muster with you. His second test is to get those crabs down here, in Texas.

Not quite so high a hurdle, huh?

WebSavvyMom said...

-->...And then pass the pitcher of beer!

Raquel's World said...

Lifeguard, Lacrosse, and Crabs??? She hit the jackpot!

Lynn MacDonald said...

See? that kid has been trained well. Winning over the mom is the MOST important step.

In other news, we will meet for realz in less than a month.

DawnA said...

As a Marylander I am a huge fan of the blue crab. YUMMY. And great move on the boyfriends part. Glad your girl found a nice guy. Happy Summer.

Everyday Goddess said...

not only is he brilliant, he is lucky to have you both in his life.

Mel said...

He's a keeper!! We live in Delaware, originally Maryland, and blue crabs reign in our house. Last year we started catching them ourselves and nothing like steamed crabs and corn on a summer day. Hope you enjoyed every bite! Happy Summer.

SkylersDad said...

I see that I made a mistake bringing a bottle of cheap booze on my first date!

aBroad said...

To my knowledge, my daughters dates never brought crabs .. of any sort.
She took a while to get good boyfriend taste.

Birdman said...

Buttah? Are you part Mainah or what?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Waaaa! I wish my daughter's boyfriend would give us crabs! OMG! Did I just say that?

Brenda Susan said...

Ha! A keeper for sure!

Rachael said...

This is absolutely fantastic. I didn't know what it was he was bringing over and I don't much care for crabs myself, but the last line of this letter was hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!

Alexis said...

Just fried myself up some soft-shelled MD crabs for lunch yesterday!! Sounds like she's doing good in the choosing part!! The question is....how does he treat HIS mom?

Right?!

Glad you had such a gloriously catered dinner!!
