Summer Independence Day Fun!

What a day! I was so wiped out from the BBQ that I didn’t do a stinkin’ thing yesterday.

But today I post! Because I know there are 3 of you who are waiting for the pictures and such. LOL! So here we go.

I am sad to say that I didn’t carry my camera around with me all day. It’s the life of a hostess to be preoccupied so this is kind of it for pictures.

I apologize in advance to my friends for exposing the supreme goofy sides of your personalities. No names will be given to protect the innocent! HA! HA!

In this video, some of us are just chillaxin’ before the games start. We were actually waiting on my hubby to finish up cooking the gator tail. Yes, I said gator tail. We had that and shrimp for appetizers and he had a little left to cook off. Hey don’t knock it till you try it. LOL!


Here’s some video of the gator tail cooking and friends.


Some of the goofiness my friends so willingly participated in.


And by the end of the night we all felt like this!


I hope you had a Happy Independence Day as well!

Pssst! FB friends I’ll be posting more videos later!

  7. Looks like SO much fun my friend and glad you got to hang out with Laura Lee! We were nonstop busy that day - a parade in the morning, came home to finish cooking,then took the food to bro-in-law's so he could grill and we could eat, then off to a friend's house to park so we could walk into the fairgrounds for the fireworks show, then after that show back to the friend's house to watch the last of their neighbor's fireworks - whew! Too much rushing around, not as much hanging out fun as you all had!
