Life Lately Pics

Cinco Powell bag took 6 weeks to arrive, but it finally showed up on my door step in one piece.
This was the free bag I won on Chicago Prepster's blog.

Found this beaut on Andrew's phone from LR and MR's wedding. :)

Went to a childhood friend MF's first part of her bachelorette party. We've known each other since pre school. 

Got these lovely items from vs and bath and body works. Either discounted or FREE. Gotta love coupons.

This was from MF's bridal shower. The shower and bachelorette party happened the same day.
She's getting hitched on 7/19.

LR finally posted all the wedding snap shots on fb. The other bridesmaids and I in front of the lake. This one is one of my favs so I thought I would throw it in there.
And it wasn't made available to me back when I did the wedding post.

Speaking of weddings/bridal showers....I made these cupcakes for a sorority sister's bridal shower this weekend.
Shaped like a wedding dress. 
First time doing that, so I am working on the placement/technique for the cupcakes still.

The Actual 4th

Last post you saw what took place on the eve of my favorite holiday. The pics below are from the actual 4th of July. I consider this the best time of year. :)
Andrew and I threw a little get together at his place. We had 4 friends come over, everyone else was busy with family stuff or out of town. Andrew's place isn't super big, so it was the perfectly sized party.
I didn't take pics with everyone, or of everything, my bad.

A and myself. 

Friend CB and I.

A and MJ, CB's Boyfriend playing pong.
We also had ladder golf.
We grilled burgers and dogs, enjoyed adult beverages and then went across the state line to buy some fireworks.
I'd say all of us had a blast shooting off fireworks where it is legal.
And instead of going to watch a show like normal....we all went our separate ways.
Andrew and I ended up watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix.
That ladies and gents was my 4th of July.
What did you do?

4th of July

My FAVORITE holiday is finally here! It's the 4th of July incase you live under a rock.
Last night Andrew and I attended my first company party. My one year with work is in 18 days so that's why it's my first one.
We had a lot of fun! It was like one big block party. The neighborhood every year sets off a bunch of those parachute ones and the kids chase the shoots down to catch them. Which was a fun site to see. Also they had two watermelons that were blown up with M 80s!!  SO neat.
There was a fireworks lasted 40 whole minutes! It was amazing to watch from two yards over from where they were being shot off! Le pretty and fun to watch. Celebrating our great nation's independence sure is the best. :)
Oh and there was the most Americanized truck I had ever seen.....
Here are a few festive pics. Hopefully I remember to take some more of tonight's festivities with friends.
I didn't get any pics of exploding watermelons, or any with co-workers.
But these few will do for now.
I'll see if later I can upload the 5 minute video of fireworks.
My festive nails. 

Myself and Andrew at the party.

American Truck right there y'all.
