We made it to Fort Hood!

And to make it even more exciting, Fort Hood housing called us when we were still 7 hours away and said our house was ready 2 days early! 

Yeah, we ended up going with on post housing. I had just heard such mixed reviews about the surrounding cities and didn’t want to risk it. Plus, the housing is really nice. Especially compared to Fort Carson! 

Flashing back to when we had our old house, we had two days of packing and moving and then the carpet cleaners had to come in and do whatever they do. 

Cleaning the carpets, I assume.

But anyway, that was the end of 2 very long days since we have kids and dogs that needed to be kept out of the way. Plus, Penelope got loose twice and if you know a husky, you know that they won’t come back when you call them no matter how much they love you.

(I found her. Eating someone’s garbage. Both times.)

We decided that being done with our house was a Lobsterworthy Occasion and headed down to Red Lobster.

Have you seen #LobsterWorthy? People are sharing all the everyday moments that they consider worthy of lobster and it’s really cool to scroll through. 


Lobsterfest is currently going on at Red Lobster and I’m sure you know what that means. It’s the one time of year that Red Lobster guests can choose from the largest variety of lobster dishes on the menu. It’s Red Lobster’s best and most celebratory limited time special. 

Special lobster dishes at reasonable prices in a cute seaside atmosphere? I’m there! 

I, of course, started out with the Lobster Punch! It’s available exclusively during Lobsterfest and I couldn’t pass it up. It features features Malibu Red, pineapple juice and mango passion fruit mix, topped with Myers’s Dark Rum.

And for a starter we got the Lobster-Artichoke-and-Seafood Dip which is available all year, not just during Lobsterfest. It was delicious – look at those giant chunks of lobster! 

For dinner, my husband went with the Ultimate Feast! It has a split Maine lobster tail, steamed North American snow crab legs, garlic shrimp scampi and Walt’s Favorite Shrimp. My husband was a happy camper after all that.

I ordered the Ultimate Surf and Turf (the very top photo in this post) which came with a Maine lobster tail baked with crab-and-seafood stuffing, paired with a peppercorn-seasoned grilled sirloin topped with Maine lobster meat in a citrus-hollandaise sauce. It was unbelievably good. 

And yes, I order french fries with literally everything I eat.

Lobsterfest is only going on for a limited time so make sure you check it out at Red Lobster soon! And when you go, use #LobsterWorthy on social media to share your celebration!
