Friday Letters & Fourth of July Recap

Dear Friday...nice to see you again! Dear Faith...your blog is now private?!? Dear Bloggers...I don't know why I get so attached, it's like I know all of you in my real life. Dear Real Life Friends...thank you so much for reading my blog. Dear Jordan...I'm so glad to have you back! That weird mood that you were in last week that caused me to introduce a "spanking spoon" into our house was NOT cool. Dear God...thank you for giving me patience during Jordan's crazy phase.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Fourth of July Recap

Good Morning, I hope all of you had a great 4th of July! Was it just me or did it feel like a Saturday to anyone else? Maybe because it was in the middle of the week? Maybe because we didn't do a whole lot?

Every year we host a huge 4th of July party! I secretly start planning for this party in March. I scour the Internet for recipes and cute decor ideas-pinterest doesn't help, who am I kidding, I spent hours on that site one night. LOL!

Because the 4th was in the middle of the week I decided to host my party on Saturday and call it "A Pre-Fourth of July" party. It worked out perfectly. I didn't feel stressed to get everything done quickly because I was able to have the party later in the day. One little problem: it was still 103 degrees at 5:00 when the party was supposed to start. Luckily, most of the guests were late, for some reason or another, so by the time the majority of the guests came, the sun had started to go down. We had a great time. Sorry there aren't a lot of pic, I put my camera down and just enjoyed the party!









Our bellies were full of food and our hearts were filled with love. I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July!

I laughed at the "spanking spoon", I had one of those for my daughter right after she turned 2 and started being a mini beast. It didn't last long though. Thanks for stopping by!
