As you can see, I'm all for dressing in holiday colors. Is it red, white, or blue? Throw it on! Who cares if you look silly? I was lacking in a few of the color departments so my friend Claire crocheted me an awesome necklace to bring in the red and white for my outfit. The cut-off shorts I made from a pair of my older sister's old jeans. They're from 2000, right before low-rise stretch swooped in and took over. That means they are slightly high-waisted and 100% cotton! Woo!
Yesterday was a lot of fun. My family and I went to the local parade in the morning (I love parades! Marching bands! Polititicians! Fire trucks! Why wouldn't you love a parade?), and then I spent the afternoon outdoor BBQ-hopping. Most of the day was extremely hot, and then we witnessed the storms rolling in. Throughout the coarse of the day we experienced 100 degree heat, sun, rain, thunder, lighting, hail, and 77 degree humidity. A group of us went to see fireworks and ended up getting completely drenched in a downpour while waiting for them to start. It was so much fun! The rain stopped just in time though and it was a great show!
Now I'm up to enjoy my next four days off of work. I'll be spending them in Michigan's great Upper Peninsula! See you next week!
