Every weekend should be a holiday weekend.

Don’t you agree? Life would be so much more fun if there was a holiday every weekend. I guess it’d also be really tiring after a while too, but eh whatever, yay holiday weekends.

Friday: Luckily I didn’t have to work Friday and got to enjoy some every day errand running, it was loverly. After my lazy lazy day Matt and I headed to my cousin’s 16th birthday party (seriously how he’s 16 already is beyond me, but yay birthdays!). Once the party was over Matt and I headed to a Mexican restaurant with some high school friends for margaritas and welcoming some back to town.

heart these guys

and these crazy ladies too

Definitely a great night overall, love my high school friends.

Saturday: Happy 4th of July!! Wahoo! Spent most of my morning doing a whole lotta nothing before heading to my aunt and uncle’s house to swim for a bit. Aferwards Matt and I headed over to my parent’s place for the big 4th of July BBQ they have every year with the neighbors and family. This year wasn’t much different from past years, there were tons of people, tons of food, the fire department came and it was a great time all around.

the food line, oh there was a lot of food

Megan and I having a good time

By the end of the night I’d had my fair share of margaritas so Matt and I just went home and watched a fireworks show on TV while we heard the real thing going on at the Rose Bowl. And then I believe I passed out sometime after that, oh man I’m such a rookie sometimes, haha. But man it was a great 4th of July.

Sunday: Slept in a bit (which was awesome) then went to brunch with Matt’s dad and scoped out potential wedding location. Twas fun but then we came home and relaxed a bit (and I watched part of 10 Things I Hate About You, um love that movie). Ultimately the day didn’t involve a lot except walking with my mom and having dinner with Matt while relaxing the night away. My favorite kind of day after a day like Saturday, haha.

And how was your 4th of July weekend? Any crazy stories? Good times all around I hope.

happy monday!
