Independence Day weekend recap
We took it easy this weekend for the most part. I did get some stuff I needed to finish off the armoire because living like this is getting a little old.
We had to make a stop by Hobby Lobby and I hate that the one closest to us now has a girl I went to school with working there. Thankfully we've already done the how to catch up on 20 years in 90 seconds thing but it's like when you're looking for crafting projects, you don't want to have to worry about running into someone you weren't close to acting like you were closer than you were. I can't be the only one to have had a similar incident since high school, am I?
So I think I have about all I need to get started on armoire #2 which has it's own unique challenge that I brought upon myself. But should it turn out the way it is in my head, it should look pretty awesome. Now I have a deadline looming. Our couches are supposed to be delivered by the 24th but I know they could come earlier depending on how things go so I've gotta get the furniture done and I'm sure the Mr would love to park in the garage some time this millennium.
The Mr has been battling a minor cold this week. I think it's been minor because we've been assaulting it with Emergen-C Acai Berry. I'm not one of those people who puts stock in the whole preventative meds but I got this stuff as a sample and when we both started getting sick at different times, we took it and it kicked the crud to the curb. That sold me! So I've been taking it because there's nothing worse than a summer cold and couple that with an upcoming road trip I do not want to be sick for and I've got incentive to stay well. I knew given his mouth breather status he wouldn't be able to handle a big ol formal workout so I decided we'd walk our route before the trip and enjoy the neighbors gardens.

I don't know how they got that tree to go flat against that building but it's pretty dang cool! It was about 76 degrees out with an occasional breeze so it was perfect walking weather. We also got to check out a friend's son's new store on the route and I LOVE some of the stuff I saw so I'm going to have to go back when I have some money burning a hole in my pocket. Of course, we walked the super long trek which is what we built up to and I think my hips and the balls of my feet were cursing us by the last 1/4 mile. But you've gotta take advantage of those rare cooler days of summer when the swamp ass ones smack you with humidity and the urge to stay in the A/C.
It was nice to have our workout done by 5pm and we came home and readied ourselves to move the armoire back inside. All I was concerned with was not scratching all the hard work I just put in on it and not scratching the floors. There were of course speaker issues and I was so tired by the time we were going to watch Twister (yes, we love that movie and it's the perfect movie to test speakers with so...).
I'm just glad 4th of July festivities are over. 2am yard rockets brings out the 'get off my damn lawn' curmudgeon and when it falls on a weekend, it just gets stretched out far too long for my liking.
So that about covers our weekend.
What did you guys do over the holiday weekend?
