Anywhoodle - we had a blast on Monday. SO MUCH FOOD. So much food all weekend - mango salad with cilantro lime dressing (a new favorite), gazpacho, grilled salmon, fajitas, cherries, strawberry & blueberry pancakes (so patriotic!), BBQ on Monday and pasta with homemade pesto... guacamole, hummus, more guacamole... We had 7 grown ups over for dinner on Monday and enough food for 20. Nevermind all the yummy leftovers from various other meals. I'm halfway tempted to make a comment about how we celebrated America's independence by gross American excess but this is the bright stuff of life - friends, family, celebrations. Love it!
[This also by way of explanation for why I'm going running tonight, regardless of the time - let's all hope my knees don't collapse under the weight of all those avocados]
And y'all might love it along with me if I knew how to take a picture at night. My neighborhood has not yet fallen victim to the evil that is Big Brother preventing us from shooting our eyes out and setting our neighbors' roofs on fire. MULTIPLE neighbors appear to spend serious coin on professional level displays so we lined up our chairs, sprayed on the bug spray and dreamed of the day we could keep up with the Joneses. Though we tried - oh, we tried!
|What are you planning on landing there?|
|Not pointing out the obvious here. |
Because I'm not 14 anymore.
|Terrible! But I am documenting the sparklers for posterity, |
in case Big Brother wins.
Also: I got 6 hours of sleep. Bonus hour!
