Fourth of July and our awesome outfits:
And here are Mark and I at another Fourth of July gathering, watching fireworks:
I feel like I need to add that Mark and I met at a fireworks stand back in 1998, so he always says our relationship "started with fireworks". This gives every fireworks display more meaning. (-:
I planted some beautiful flowers:
Someone got too friendly with the sprinkler and had to get blow-dried:
Someone else got groomed and is officially the cutest poodle ever:
I had girl time with lots of friends - and one friend and I happened to both have on polar bear pajamas, so I figured that was photo worthy:
I watched lots of Harry Potter in preparation for the newest movie this week:
Cookie baking definitely took place (more than once):
Mark and I attended a wedding reception and they had cupcakes that we got to eat and decorate:
And last but not least, I got to spend extra time with Jesus, and that was wonderful:
One of my favorite things was not setting my alarm each night when went to bed, and not waking up before around 10:00am. (-: That was pretty awesome.
So, I am a lover of the staycation. It was super cheap (I only spent money on flowers to plant, one skirt I bought, coffee at a coffee shop, and baking ingredients). For a vacation, you really can't beat that. And it was nice to slow down and not be busy.
Have you ever had a staycation?
