July 4th Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July weekend! Sorry for the lack of posting. I'm a blogger without the proper tools! I don't have a computer at home and I didn't feel like posting from my parent's house this weekend!

Saturday was a beautiful and HOT day in the neighborhood. I decided to try the public pool with Tony my nephew and it was just what the doctor ordered! We were only there a few hours but it was so refreshing! And since there is a huge waterslide there, I got in my exercise by climbing the stairs to the platform over and over...and over again! I got in additional exercise that night with about 1 hour of walking.

Sunday was the 4th of July. I wore a new shirt, new earrings and new shorts. The shorts are actually 1 size larger than I wear but you have to dress for comfort, not size right? Here is me and my mom.

Yes, my mom is a skinny mini. She has been that way all her life. It's her jeans, I mean gene's! I take after my curvy, fuller sized dad's side! :/

My grandparents came over and we had the most delicious food on the face of the planet. Well, it's the most delicious food next to ice cream, that is :) RIBS! Yummy! And grilled corn. My dad also made stuffed mushrooms. There may have been other things but to tell you the truth, I can barely remember past the ribs!

Oh, cucumber salad, that's what else we had. So it was pretty healthy minus the BBQ ribs but I planned for it and counted every single point!

Strawberry shortcake was for dessert! Yummy!

We walked to my neighborhood's fireworks. It was so crowded. I had never been there before! But got in some exercise with the walking and I did mow the lawn in the morning and did some cleaning. Always trying to fit in some extra activity where I can!

Monday I slept in late! Really late for me! I woke up at 10:40! Ahhhhh, felt nice! After breakfast, I went to my parent's house to search for hotels for my vacation, then picked up my nephew and drove him to my parent's restaurant. I went to the gym for 45 mins of kickboxing class and 1 hour powerflex (weights). It was so great!

Now it's Tuesday but it SO feels like Monday. I'm tired and a girl is on vacation and I have to cover for her this week. But only 4 days and I'm on vacation! Woohoo! Can't wait!

How was your 4th of July?
