Name Our Boat Giveaway!

October 1, 2010Katie



If you’ve read Dishin & Dishes for awhile, you know that our favorite thing to do is escape to a lake somewhere with our boat.

Monday of this week, I took a day off of work cuz Mr. Wonderful was off.  We headed to the lake.  I love to read while he fishes and the weather was gorgeous!

Incidentally, do you think you would be allowed to do this in a car?

Sometimes I actually fish, and shortly after I threw my line out, I reeled in this monster.

So then Mr. Wonderful decided to compete and kicked my tail by catching 7 or 8 to my one tiny fish.

So then I gave up and started taking pictures.  We headed down this long line of boats to find a new spot for him to fish at.

One of my favorite things to do is to look at the names on boats as we pass them…names like G’Day Mate.

and Against the Wind (Bob Seger fan perhaps?).

Wow, and these people must really feel elated while boating…Jubilee!

This was one of my favorities…this man must have a wife named Karry that he adores…Karry Me Away.

And this sounds like a wonderful dream name for a boat…

Incidentally, I am really bad at taking moving pictures whilst on our boat…blurry!

Anyway, it got me thinking ,and I told Mr. Wonderful that we need to name our boat.

So here’s the thing…I need your help!

If you can think of anything to name our boat…leave a comment below with your name and e-mail address.  If we select the name you leave, you’ll win this:

A Le Creuset Stoneware Rectangular Dish (12 1/2 inches) in Cherry Red.  I have several different sizes of these and adore them.

Some hints about our life that might help you…we have 6 kids (yes, you read that correctly), live in Oklahoma, I love to cook, he likes to fish, I do a cooking segment on Rise & Shine Oklahoma and we have 3 dogs.

Now do you see why I’m having trouble naming the boat?
