I'm going to try to knock this post out quickly.
I've got a convention (nothing to do with beads. . .sorry) starting tomorrow and lasting through the whole weekend and I've still got plenty to do in preparation. But I wanted to let you know why I may be absent the rest of the week (though, you never know when I might be able to pop online for a few minutes.)
I hope you had a fabulous Fourth of July whether you celebrated America's independence or not.
Mine was spectacular.
Pat and I decided to chill at the house most of the day (since there tends to be a high incidence of drinking and driving on the 4th). However, since we are water babies, we still wanted to get wet. So, Pat set up the soaker hose on a tarp in the backyard then added our beach chairs and a cooler with some cold beverages.
Here's a better look at the soaking
And my invention for not getting water into my beer (that's right, it's a plastic glove. . .we were calling it a beer condom)
We grilled some brats and corn (we only took the husk off right at the end of the grilling, per these directions)
And I threw some tater tots in the oven for one yummy feast!
After a bit, we were craving something sweet, so I made some Four Ingredient Nutella Brownies (we ate them ALL)
Later in the evening we headed downtown for my favorite part of the Fourth, the FIREWORKS!!
I caught a few videos on my phone, so here's a sample of our show. I personally liked that the crescent moon was in the background the whole time and you can see the reflection of the fireworks on the water. . .so pretty!!
I know for sure I'll be back posting away next week. . .for now let's just see if I survive this one! First, back to packing!
