The Lately: Four Day Weekend

Wow, it's been a while. I guess I've been keeping myself fairly busy which is good, right? I hope everyone had a good weekend. Our weekend ended yesterday due to the Fourth of July holiday. I REALLY enjoyed those two extra days to hang out with Eric. As far as anything newsworthy, I recently received my acceptance letter to the university I applied to. My major will be communications! So that was a very exciting thing for me. My husband recently got promoted in rank, so congrats to him as well!

As far as capturing this weekend, I snagged a couple photos here and there. Hope you enjoy!
I started everything off with a manicure. A friend and I searched up and down for a good reviewed nail salon. We really like the place we found. I got my "pornstar" nails. In nail tech terms, this would be called a duck tip nail. Aren't they ridiculous? I probably wouldn't get it again as I get annoyed with fake nails after a while and I like to paint them cool new colors. But they were fun to get!

I did some DIY decor in the apartment as well. I got the idea from here. It's CD wall art! I picked out pictures from old Bazaar magazines, but I'll probably make more of these designs with pictures from family and friends as well.

Fireworks were obviously a must-see in the south. In California, they have a lot of bans on fireworks so 4th of July isn't as "festive". In the south, it's almost crazy NOT to see fireworks blowing off everywhere. I was so excited because I hadn't seen fireworks in a very long time.

The next day, all the boys went out on empty dirt roads to go rallying. Unfortunately, that meant running into a few fallen trees and using that "man power" of theirs to clear the road. 
The result of an empty dirt road. This is my husband in action! The boys get pretty crazy when they do this, but I even think it's really fun to sit passenger. A lot of adrenalin pumps you up.
This is pretty much the FINAL result of a rallying: a DIRTY car :]

The rest of the weekend was dedicated to relaxing and preparing for the REAL 4th of July. Eric and I had friends come over for a BBQ and to light off fireworks at the end of the night. I prepared SO much food for everyone. I was so excited to have everyone eat it.

That sums up what's been going on lately. Thanks for reading
