July 4th weekend.

Friday night I went to the hospital to visit my friend Danielle’s little girl.

She was born 9 weeks early. She is a 3lb 7oz bundle of joy. I could have sat there holding her all night. She is in the NICU. She is going to be just fine but her little body just needs to grow and is going to be in there for a few more weeks. So precious!!

Saturday was the perfect day. I exercised, caught up on some tv, finished a book, pool, napped, and went to dinner with friends Saturday evening. A group of us went to downtown Orlando to celebrate our friend Laura’s birthday. The food was yummy and the company even better.

It was a fun night.

Sunday was about as unproductive as you could get. I was glued to the Casey Anthony trial ALL.DAY.LONG. It has been something else to have this trial so close to home. Will be glad when the verdict is read so I can have my life back. Ha!

Monday I was up bright and early for my July 4th 5k run.

Michelle was my running buddy.

I loved having somebody to run with. This was only my second 5k race and I beat my last time. Not by much but I’ll take it, ha!! It was a fun race.

We went out to breakfast afterwards and got my red, white, and blue pancakes. YUMMY!!!!! :)

I was beat from the race and so was lazy the rest of the afternoon. Then last night went over to my best friend’s house for July 4th festivities and fireworks. Can you believe I didn’t get any pictures?? BUMMER.

But here’s me in my red, white, and blue!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend celebrating the 4th and remembered the true reason we celebrate the holiday and what makes this country so great!!

And YAY for a short work week this week!!!! :)
