4th of July Recap.

Happy 4th of July on the 5th of July. And yay to me, who enjoyed a mini 5 day vacay. Most of which I spent at home with the husband and dogs. Cleaning, staying up late, waking up even later, and just lounging around. It was lovely. My hubby who normally works close to 60 hours a week also had three days off with me, so we got to spend some quality time together. Which rarely happens. Although I'm not as much as a home body as him, so I took up every oppurtunity to hang with friends, family, and hit up cook outs.

Friday morning I spent time with family shopping - which is shared on my blog a few posts ago. As well as my shopping experience yesterday where I found a cute cheetah top and some dollhouse sandals.

What I haven't told you yet is that on Saturday, me and some of my bff's (James and Derek who are Room-mates, Molly who lives downstairs, and Ryan who is one of our other besties) decided to throw a 4th of July barbecue {what we call p-a-r-t-y} at their house. James, Derek, and Molly live on Salisbury Beach, a tourist attraction and great spot for the locals to swim in the ocean, bathe in the sun, play some arcades, and eat some great food. Around 3 pm- Molly and I went outside and set up about 20 chairs, hung some Tiki decorations, and set up the tables for the food. The party started at 6. About 20 people showed up including a few friends, co-workers, and some of Molly's family. We ate some delicious food, had some delicious drinks {which included frozen margaritas, rum, and coconut jack} and roasted marshmellows over the fire pit. At 10 pm we all walked down to the beach, where we layed on the sand, to watch them light fireworks over the ocean. It was a blast. And it was actually our first party that none of us got hammered, so instead of staying the night I drove home at 2am and snuggled in bed with PJ and the pups <3

Yesterday I also went to a cook out one of my life long best friend Lauren's house. She cooked a huge assortment of food; from onions & potatoes, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, steak, chicken, to pasta salad, and a few desserts. We played bat-mitten (spelling?), volleyball, talked, and hung out drinking Corona's and Soda while listening to music and watching all the crazy kids of their's run around the back yard. The weather was wild. One second it was hot and humid, and the next it was thunder & lightning and the rain poured down on us. The second it was over, we were right back outside, only for it to repeat two or three times more. I ended up leaving before Lauren's fiance lit off the fireworks {which are illegal in the state of Mass- where we live} but ohwell :) I'm sure it was worth the smiles on the kids' faces and the men who got to shoot them off! I didn't get any pictures, BUMMER.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! Hey, I like how you edit your photographs (i.e. the curved edges and the written words.) What program do you use? Good luck with your detox.

  2. I just use picnik.com, its a website. I had photoshop but my desktop crashed :(

  3. I'm gonna try that! It makes your pics look really jazzy! I love it. Thanks!
