Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a fab Fourth of July weekend!

Mine started out on Friday with a little lunch and shopping with fellow blogger and South Floridian, Petunia In Paradise.  I love shopping in the historic downtown area where I live.  There are wonderful shops with unique clothing, gifts, bath items, SHOES!  I was good and only bought some stationary (I really need to start writing more cards to downsize my collection).
Great hostess tip - take one folded notecard from each set of cards and wrap them in a clear bag and tie with a bow.  I've done this many times and the hostesses love the idea.

It rained pretty much all weekend, but that wasn't going to stop us!  Check out this sky, interesting!

We started Sunday at a friend's house with their family where Lallie received a fishing lesson.  "Ewwww worms!"  She was fascinated by the worms (her little friend named the worms Shelley, Amanda and Victoria).
Then we moved onto our friend's house on the water for the fireworks!  It drizzled the entire time we were there, so everyone pretty much remained wet (either via rain or the pool).

"Show me your watermelon!!!"  A Fourth of July staple if you ask me (though I greatly dislike watermelon, which if you follow me on Facebook, you would know that as Husband thought it would be funny to tell Lallie that I love watermelon and force feed it to me).

Niki, our resident baker and cupcake chef, made adorable star cookies for the kiddos!

Yummm!  Trifle!

And for the grand finale..  Fireworks in the rain while everyone shouted "Happy Birthday USA (and Lallie)"  Lallie seemed to think all this celebrating was for her birthday.  Since she cried when we told her it wasn't, we just left it alone and said she was included.

Happy Wednesday Y'all!


  1. We were rained out too. Actually we were rained and hailed out. Right after I planted my basil and peppers too. Darn it!
    They had to reschedule the fireworks show for the next day. It worked out great because not too many peple must have known. There were so many great spots to sit and watch the fireworks and there was no traffic getting home.

  2. Looks like a great 4th!

  3. Lallie looks so adorable!! Looks like she had fun with her friends!

  4. I'm with you on the watermelon. Yuch. But cute little blondies make everything better:).

  5. That sounds like a fabulous weekend! Glad the weather cooperated for the most part.

  6. What a fun-sounding weekend!

  7. I have done the same stationary gifty thing...I love the card sets at Michaels by the front - I buy 10 sets and mix them all together to create lots of nice little gifts! Some Forever stamps with them are always appreciated!

  8. Oh and just grabbed your button for my blog roll, hope ya don't mind.

  9. We dodged the rain on the 4th but have had nothing but rainy days since. Today was the first time in 2 days we'd seen the sun. Looks like a fun 4th! Gotta love those So FL summer storms! I've been there!

    Happy Hump Day!
