After the long weekend for most of you, I’m sure the struggle bus is completely full right about now since everyone is back to work today. I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July with your loved ones, fireworks, and drinks; because I sure did.
Friday I believe we got up to 109 degrees, which is insane and makes for a hot and sweaty me. I definitely wasn’t going to let the heat ruin our fun time. I decided to make those strawberry filled jello shots for a little party we were having at our place that evening. Pinterest should just have a disclaimer that says nothing you try will ever turn out like this pinned image. At least for me it never does. They were still delicious none the less, but a mess to make. I used Smirnoff strawberry vodka to make them, and they were awesome.
We were not lacking in the drink department that night.
A little later into the evening a little pretty pup came running into our yard terrified and shaking from all the loud fireworks. She seemed very clean and healthy so we knew she must be lost. She knew tricks and was already completely potty trained so she was staying with us until we found her family. She reminded me of Pepper because she was such a loving lap dog.
We started doing fireworks out front, and there must be something programmed in guys that makes them want to be near fire because I like to stay a really far distance from all things fire related!
(Yep, he jumped through.)
I love sparklers, but I’m actually terrified of the sparks.
The night ended and the lost pup stayed with my sister overnight. The next day Connie and my mom went to see if she was micro-chipped, and no luck. I posted her all over social media and still nothing. Saturday evening we went walking with her around my neighborhood and by such a blessing we found her mom and dad driving around looking all over for her! They we’re so thankful and so happy to see their little girl, who happens to be named Coco! That was such a good feeling to reunite a dog and her family because I can only imagine the pain of losing your dog and not knowing whose hands they are in.
How was your Fourth of July, are you struggling to get back to work today?
