A Very Happy Fourth!

Whoa!  Getting up today for work was H.A.R.D.  I'm seriously considering taking the rest of this pregnancy off.  And then going on an extended maternity leave...aka...never coming back.  Who's with me?

Anywho, our little family had such a lovely weekend!  I had the day off on Friday so I decided to hit up the theaters in the morning to see Eclipse.  Thought I'd save Matty from taking me to see that one :)  I spent the rest of the afternoon making cupcakes to take to a BBQ that evening hosted by some of my Junior League friends.  I heard they were delicious...but my sweet tooth is still hiding so I couldn't tell you.  I did have a small piece of cookie cake, because seriously, if there is ever a day I turn down cookie cake...just shoot me.  Life will no longer be worth living.

So the BBQ was delightful.  When I was there, I realized something fabulous.  We are now in the age group where our parties includes kids, bubbles, and catching up with friends all night long.  No longer do I have to endure keg stands or frat guys.  A girl could get used to this.

Saturday Matt and I made a yummy Strawberry Cheese Pie, which I find sounds disgusting....so just think of it as pretty much a cheesecake but not as firm, okay?  We took it to another party that evening and enjoyed some much needed time with our friends.  Bonus:  they had just set up the kiddie pool so we all gathered around and dipped out feet in the water.  Perhaps I should invest in one of these now?

Sunday we were supposed to go watch fireworks with friends, but oh did the baby have other plans.  He or she said very loudly, "SLOW DOWN MAMA!"  So I did.  And Monday was more of the same.  I did make an attempt to go to the grocery store, which resulted in an utter fail...but lesson learned.  I did get the Pop Tarts I have so been craving...so I guess it was worth it :)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

MMmmm....cookie cake. Did it have an excessive amount of frosting on it?? Please say it did. The giant eagle by our old condo in Columbus used to sell these cookie sandwhiches...sometimes it was even more frosting than I could handle, which says alot!

Glad you had a good weekend!

sounds like a great weekend, even the 2 days of relaxing! We had a lot of rain here this weekend so that sorta killed the fun. I'm jealous that you get to hang out at gatherings where people bring their kids! My husband & I will be 29 this year and we are the only people who have kids and who are done with the keg stand lifestyle! It's tough!
