I could definitely get used to this holiday in the middle of the week thing...work 2 days...1 day off...work 2 days...2 days off. We didn't make big plans for the 4th and decided to go with the flow.
Tuesday evening we were upstairs in our gameroom and heard fireworks. Our house has a view of the golf course clubhouse and they did a big show. Perfect way to watch fireworks (and Ernie was so enamored)
This is NOT a pregnancy announcement...just showing you my obsession with watermelon lately :-). Dang these things are heavy and I will look ridiculous pregnant haha
Wednesday morning we went to our neighborhood parade that included a firetruck, 1 old car and about a million kids...we were definitely an anomaly in our neighborhood haha. We tried to go play tennis but the courts were booked :-(. We don't play competitively but tennis is a great workout and lots of fun. We were sure to dress patriotically
Someone else loves tennis too
We spent the afternoon at my parents house for a pool party and bbq, it was perfect.
After 6 hours at the pool, we left and were showered and in bed by 9:30p watching fireworks and relaxing. One thing I love about my hubby is we can spend so much quality time together, uninterrupted by TV, phones, etc. We are good at unplugging...
In other news....
Jon had a bad allergic reaction to my parents cat on Monday. I feel so bad when this happens :-( and Jon loves cats!
We are almost done with our guest bedroom and here is a sneak peek. Life has been a little busy and I have a feeling I won't finish it until my deadline of July 20th :-). Because a chevron wall isn't enough...
There are so many flies in our house right now, it's weird and gross. Any tips for getting rid of them?
My grandparents are in town so we will be doing the family thing tonight :-)
Oh and you still have a few days to enter to win a 1 year subscription to Lucky magazine I posted yesterday with Pineapple Lily. Be sure to enter here.
I have really been missing new episodes of Ellen. My after work ritual was to turn it on right when I got home while unpacking, eating a snack, etc. Ernie wasn't a fan but I would always pick him up when she danced and we would have our own dance party. Can't wait til the new season starts.
Have a great weekend!
