Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day!

May you all have a super fabulous holiday filled with all the people you love! Eat lots of food and dessert. Just so you know, calories don’t count on holiday weekends.

My holiday weekend has been pretty awesome so far! Lots of fun stuff going on in the O. Household.

I’ve come to the conclusion that holiday weekends are bound to be successful if they include:
Sno Cones
A new cupcakery discovered down the street from where you live (even better that it’s next to the sno cone place)
Two Red Sox / Astros Games in two days
Wearing a Sox shirt to one game
Scoring a cheap Astros’ shirt at the other game and wearing it mid-game
Enjoying both games with my favorite Sox fan (who likes to photobomb all the time, btw)
And enjoying one game with my favorite Astros’ fan – who, by the way, participated in the funniest banter with the most annoying Red Sox fan (even the Sox fans found him irritating). The best part was when she asked him, “What part of Massachusetts are you from?” The dude said he was from Georgia. Katie looked over to Greg and said, “Hey, Greg, you’re from Massachusetts – have you heard of a town named Georgia?” HILARIOUS.

Tonight, we’re headed to my mom’s 23rd floor condo overlooking the lake/bay. We’re bound to see at least 3 different firework shows. Yay for no burn bans over the water! Texas’ drought has really impacted fireworks displays this year, so we’re lucky to live in an area that will be continuing their displays over the water.

How have your holiday weekends gone? What are the big plans for tonight? Whatever they are, enjoy them to the fullest!

    Lol to katies awesome red sox burn! The only people more annoying than sox fans are phillies fans. I don’t even care who wins at a game but if I am sitting anywhere around phillies fans I suddenly become a huge supporter of the opposing team! Happy 4th!

    Well that sounds like a fabulous 4th weekend! We had a great weekend as well. 🙂
    P.S. I’m glad calories don’t count, because I had some lemon meringue pie twice! (Shhh!)
