A Perfect Combination

Oh, hey friends! I bet none of us could predict what the blog world will be exploding with today. Right? ;) No BBQs or sparklers or bikini pictures, whatsoever. Just kidding... I think my 4th of July weekend was everything it was "supposed" to be. I did all the cliche, long, holiday weekend things, and loved every minute of it:

I ate too much.

I watched fireworks.

I hit up the outlet malls for their amazing deals.

I watched Jared and my brother-in-law run a patriotic race.



I spent time with family.

I stayed outside as much as possible.

I attended a local festival.



What more could you want, right? I hope this photo dump of a post actually counts as a post, because it's really all I can muster up today. The extra time off, the quality time with my niece, the complete over-stuffing of myself? Definitely doesn't set you up for success, I can tell you that much. This 4th of July weekend was just as awesome, if not better, than expected. I got to spend tons of uninterrupted time with family that was in town for the long weekend, plus Jared and I were able to work around the house and get a lot done, as well. A perfect combination for a long weekend if you ask me.

I hope your 4th of July weekend was just as fun as mine! :) Don't forget to enter my Sugar Love Boutique giveaway before Wednesday!

  1. Wow! You did a lot this weekend. I played with sparklers, so that was fun. And fireworks and eating, of course. No festival for me, though. My town needs to get its act together apparently.
