It is hard to believe that my week off of work went by so fast. Why can't work weeks go by like that? I didn't do as much as I had planned to do, but here are a few highlights from my week:
I put together a festive 4th of July Tablescape. Using only things I had on hand, I think it turned out very nice! You have to love the red, white & blue!
The plates and napkins are from JoAnn's. I bought them a few weeks ago hoping to use them for the 4th. Since I wasn't having my own get together, I thought I would put them to use decorating my table!
Surprisingly, I had a lot more patriotic things than I thought. The handkerchief in the middle of the table is from an event I put on at the Snake River Stampede. It was Patriot Night and Wrangler gave out red, white and blue handkerchiefs. I got the star plates at Michaels last year, had the flag toothpicks as well as the star cupcake toppers. The confetti, flags, tulle and glitter stars were in my stash. Each place setting had a mason jar to drink out of!Nope, I didn't have a party for the 4th, but I went to one at my parent's house. It was a hot day and we mostly sat on the back patio, ate, listened to the creek and tried to stay cool. The teenagers had fun posing for pictures. These are my neice and nephew, along with 2 of my cousin's kids. Hard to believe I used to babysit these kids so long ago when I was their age!
My Aunt Becky and my mom got in a game of croquet. There was also volleyball and badmitton...if you could stand the heat!
All of us girls made our way down to the creek to soak our feet in the cold water. It felt amazing! This is my sister, my cousin Katie and my Aunt Becky.
We barbequed hamburgers and had all kinds of yummy sides and desserts. This was my Red, White and Blue bundt cake that I made. It was so pretty and very tasty!
Even my dogs got in on the holiday spirit. They each wore a patriotic handkerchief around their necks. Bella didn't like the loud noises of the fireworks, but Grady didn't mind!
I got to babysit this little cutie patootie. He is getting way too big but what a good baby boy he is!
I had some movies that I wanted to watch so Cody decided to set up a little movie theatre on the patio. My table is the perfect stand for the TV. We sit on the day bed and get to watch movies and breath in the fresh summer air. What movies did I watch?
Twilight movies. I also read all 4 books on my break. Well, I read all 4 of them in 2 weeks. I never thought I would be a fan of Twilight, but I am so glad that I read them and I could barely put them down. I was Team Jacob all the way until the end. Now I can't wait for the last movie to come out. Oh no...I think I am addicted!
So, it seems I did quite a bit over my break, but nothing that I had planned. That liquor cabinet/bar hasn't seen a lick of work still. Guess I better get on that!
