Happy 4th!

Happy (late) 4th of July!
Well, technically it's the 5th now, but most of you are off work today, right? My husband is off work today and he doesn't get tons of holidays, so I assume most everyone is getting the holiday today. Enjoy it if you are, go complain to someone if you aren't :) As I mentioned on Twitter, we spent yesterday with family, swimming, BBQ'ing, and being entertained by all the various animals in the family (that's what you do when no one has kids yet haha). Oh, and we discovered last night that we could see the local firework show from our house! We live like 15 miles away from downtown so we definitely weren't expecting that, so it was a nice surprise. We put the contract on our house last August 26 (only know that because it's our anniversary) and moved at the end of September, so this was our first 4th of July in the new house. Enough rambling :)

Being a holiday (kind of) and all, I figured I'd just do a fun post today, so let's catch up on a few blog awards some wonderful ladies have given me lately!

from Vivian at Diamonds and Tulle 
If you remember, I won a blog award where you made your own, and sweet Vivian passed hers on to me as well! Thanks Vivian :)

Thanks so much Bren! Know you're busy lately - get back to blogging soon! :)

Sounds like you had a good 4th of July, I'm sure the animals are at least a little easier to control than kids!
