Hey ya'll! We had a great weekend. Very productive. Dan was busy on Saturday and Sunday tearing out trees in our backyard. I was sad to see them go, but they needed to. One was a bottle brush tree that attracted TONS of bees and the other was leaning on our fence. Oh well. Sorry nature lovers! Monday, we got new (to us) furniture from Craigslist. Our entire living room is now furnished. Couch, loveseat and chair along with a really pretty china hutch. All for $450. And it looks nice. Not too nice....otherwise Dan will NEVER buy me new furniture. It had to be strategically planned. Even he thought it was well played on my part to get exactly what I want. Ha! I had my family over for a BBQ on the 4th. It was fun. We bbq'd ribs and had those grilled artichokes, potato salad, corn on the cob and cheesecake with my homemade fudge sauce. SO yummy. I wish we weren't such pigs and that we had some leftover. I gave the sad preggo sister in law the last of the fudge just so she wouldn't eat one of my children. (I'm sure I'll get a nasty phone call when she reads that one). We went to the Target parking lot to watch fireworks, like all red blooded white trash Americans do on 4th of July. Good times. Vincent loved it and said that they were all yellow. I love all the patriotic songs and the flags and the lights. I love this holiday. I really do love our country and am proud to live here.
*I tried making a delicious Malibu Rum Cake this weekend and it was delicious. All thanks to Nicki for the idea!
