Freedom Fun

Yesterday, obviously, was July 4th. We took license with our freedom and celebrated on the 3rd. Our friend Betsy has been grill-sitting for two years, since we sold our house (can't have a grill at an apartment). Every time she wants to use it, she feels like she has to ask permission and invite us over. Win-win for us! Haha!

Anyway, we went to Betsy's and had a Mexican fajita cookout (What says American more than Mexican food?), complete with my famous guacamole and blueberry pie. Melting pot up in there. It was amazing. And awesome.

We eventually played cards, but generally we just cry-laughed the night away (that's when you laugh so hard your make-up runs down your face). My abs got a great workout that night!

Then yesterday on the actual 4th, we did not do this, though we heard them from home...

Instead, we watched our own marathon of this... 

We've recently discovered White Collar and since the season 4 finale starts next week, we had to get caught up. Good thing we only had ten episodes left of season 3! It was an awesomely restful, relaxing day.

Of course, we threw a little of this in there for good measure...

Trying to hit 45 miles in July with Marta, who's decided I can do it, even though I didn't quite make the 40 miles in June with her... we'll see. I'm at least joining in for the commiserating with other like-minded people who like torture.

So that was our 4th and now we're back to work! On Monday, I'll be linking up with Kim's July 4th linky party!

Celebrating the 4th with someone named Betsy???!! Doesn't get more patriotic than that.

God Bless America. And super cute recap.

dang girl! festive and sporty all in one? love it! :)

we had fireworks on the 3rd too - so it kinda felt like that was more of the actual holiday than the 4th. :)

party hardy! :) <3
