July 4th Weekend

I know I'm about a week behind on all of my posts, but I'm working on it, I promise!

We spent last weekend in Oxford.  We celebrated Peter's 30th Birthday (twice) and 4th of July.  Friday when we got in, we ate at Papitos, the usual but always good!  Saturday we ate at Proud Larry's and it was a good treat, too.  As much as we are in Oxford, we hardly ever go to or eat on the Square it seems, so it was nice!  Sunday for the 4th, we went to church and the preacher asked everyone who was born in the US to raise their hand and then asked everyone who was not born in the US to raise their hand, and it was really special to see my husband and in-laws raise their hands.  They were all born in Egypt, but have all become American citizens which is really neat.  We ate a delicious dinner at Darcy and Peter's that night and then went to watch the fireworks at the baseball field - always a good show!

Darcy's amazing trifle :-)

Enjoying the fireworks:

Thankfully, I had Monday off.  I spent the entire day cleaning the house and doing "chores" haha.  BUT, I also did another FREE room-redo in the back bedroom which we've been using as an office/study.  So stay tuned...
