I had to work all day on Friday, which was a huge bummer. It would have been nice to just go to the pool and relax. I’ll get the day back at some point, I suppose. We also had neighbors partying since Wednesday night and it lasted until Saturday night. It got old Friday and then really got bad on Saturday when they were setting off fireworks close to our house. When we took the dogs out, we found what was left of a roman candlestick in our yard and we were not pleased.
Onto the positive; last Tuesday was Geof’s birthday, so we saved the celebration for this weekend. Friday night, some of our friends came over and we had a few cocktails here and then headed out for the evening. We had a nice time and hubby really enjoyed himself, which was the most important thing to me.

I also received a package on Friday and wasn’t expecting anything, so I was surprised to see that it was for me. It turns out that my sweet friend, Lis sent me the most adorable tote bag and had my monogram embroidered on it in pink! I love it so much and it is absolutely perfect. It was an early birthday gift and so very thoughtful of her.
Saturday, I gave Geof his gifts and had a cake for him. I got him the Kindle since he travels a lot and likes to read. He loved it and was so excited. It always makes me feel good when I know I did well on the gift selection. Saturday evening I took him out for a birthday dinner at an Indian restaurant that we wanted to try. The food was really good and the place wasn’t crowded considering it was the 4th of July. After dinner, we walked around town and talked. The weather was perfect and we had a nice night with just the two of us.

Sunday, I wasn’t feeling so hot and we just laid low. Our friend Kelly came by for a little while and we caught up. Later that night, Geof and I took the dogs to the park and wore them out. We came back home, relaxed and had a quiet night.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! What did you do?
