Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Independence Day Weekend

Independence Day Weekend

Charis sticking out her tongue
(wonder where she got that from).
Hope everyone had a safe and fun filled 4th of July!!  Charis, Drew, and I sure did.  Well Drew worked on job applications most of the day at Panera Bread, but Charis and I had a day filled with shopping, napping, some more shopping, and cooking.

I woke up at 7:30, but didn't get up until the pumpkin woke up (around 8:30).  I then got dressed and had breakfast, because I was going to go thrifting.  Our nearby thrift store is HUGE and WONDERFUL.  Every month, around a holiday weekend, they have a 50% off day.  I wanted to get there ASAP and try to beat the crowds.  I succeeded for the first hour, but then it got busier and busier.  Lesson was learned, leave the apartment and get to the store first thing in the morning.  I was on a mission-buy baby clothes.  No, I'm not pregnant, but my sister-in-law is!!!  So, I'm now an aunt who wanted to go shopping as soon as I found out.  I'm also planning knitting projects for the little baby.  I would post pictures, but they might be seen by unwanted people (my SIL and her husband).

Drew was teasing Charis
with a hairbrush.
Charis and I went to Starbucks, home (to eat and nap), Joann Fabric, and Target.  I bought hot dogs, hot dog buns, and chips at Target.  Drew came home and we went to see fireworks.  All in all, it was a GOOD day.

How did you spend your holiday?  
Do you have any special traditions on Independence Day?

  1. I was just skimming this post until I saw you refer to R and D as "unwanted people", that isn't very nice of you!
