Happy Indpendence Day my Friends! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!
This week I have been the “Queen” of PVC and Pool Noodles…lol. I posted two projects for Monday Made it that I had finished up over the weekend. You can check those out here
I have been working on two other PVC/Noodle projects that I will be posting this coming Monday. I just love being able to work on so many projects for my room during the summer.
This week I started trying to make good on my mission to get back into fitness. My Mother-in-law and I have been walking every morning 2 miles around the fields of our houses. I just love looking out at this view while walking. It is just so peaceful.
I know I need to step it up to really get back in shape, but I figure any amount of movement is a step in the right direction.
I started packing…sort of…for my trip to Vegas this week. I have been super busy with the family and I need to get finished ASAP. I leave on Sunday for I Teach K and the blogger meet up. As I was packing I realized I NEEDED a few cute new things to take with me. So, I ran to town and found a couple of goodies to add to my suitcase.
Of course, I seemed to stick to my go to favorite type of clothes lately…maxi’s. What can I say, they are comfortable and forgiving for the few extra pounds I have put on. I am going to miss my family, but I know that it is going to be a ton of fun and I am going to learn a lot.
Well, I couldn’t go to Vegas without getting ALL fixed up. I really sort of used that as an excuse to squeeze in a day with one of my BFF’s to get pedicures and have lunch.
We had a great time and I just love the sparkly red!
Of course I had to get my nails freshened up and ready for the trip too...they had to match ya know! Monica did a fabulous job, as usual. She just knows me so well. I love them! What can I say...I am a little high maintenance.
Last night we had our annual BBQ with some wonderful friends to celebrate the 4th, I know it was the 3rd. The little town next to ours always does their fireworks on the 3rd. So we actually celebrate twice. We spent the evening eating , visiting, eating, watching fireworks, eating…it was a great time. The homemade ice cream was the best!
Tonight we will be attending another BBQ with my family and enjoying some more fireworks.
Hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating all the wonderful freedoms we have in this country. I am truly thankful for everything we have by living here and I am especially grateful to our military for keeping our country safe.
Have a great weekend…what are your plans for celebrating? I love to read your thoughts and comments!
