I scream, you scream, we all scream for SHARK WEEK!!!!!!

Does anyone else around here just completely lose their shit during Shark Week? I am totally glued to the TV and agitated with anything that interrupts my viewing time. Nothing gets between me and my shark.

Unless, of course, it's a Shark Week Party... In honor of this epic week of fantasticness on the Discovery Channel, I threw a Shark Week Party at my house last night and it was a blast. I wanted to make some kind of shark themed cocktail and snack for the party. I finally settled on shark cookies decorated to look like the Jaws Movie Poster. I admit, I was lazy. I used pre-made sugar cookie mix and buttercream frosting which I dyed blue for the body. I then piped on black frosting for the mouth and eyes. 

My boyfriend made ahi poke and actual shark so we could eat shark while we watched sharks... is that messed up? Maybe, but it was delicious!

Finally, I made some "shark infested waters" cocktails, which is two parts Bacardi Zombie mix, 1 part 7-Up, 1 part Lemonade, 1 part Vodka and a splattering of swedish fish and a cocktail umbrella for looks.

Is anyone else out there loving Shark Week?

  12. Oh my goodness you are crazy! I do not like shark week AT ALL!! I live at the beach so I like to pretend they're aren't sharks in the water and it's kind of hard to pretend when you watch shark week. Love your cookies though :)
