Happy Belated 4th!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful fun time over the weekend or on the 4th (whenever you celebrated) !! I had a fantastic party on the 4th, although there was a a bit of drama following it but that was ok because I still had a blast!!! We had tons of food (hamburgers,hot dogs, bbq chicken, corn on the cob, homemade pasta salad and 3 bean salad etc) and we watched movies outside in my backyard on the huge outdoor movie screen I have. I had tiki torches lighting up the path to my deck...it really looked cute and festive. I even made my very first poke cake. It didn't  turn out exactly how I wanted it. Well, it did, it just got left out longer than it was supposed to and the icing melted and made the top layer slide off the bottom layer, so it was kinda obviously uneven. Still tasted good though.


I also got a great deal on some new furniture for a "tiki bar room" I am trying to decorate in my house.I don't have the actual bar yet but am working on that, but at least now I have the rest of the room. lol I am going to the mountains tomorrow for the weekend, so if anyone is going to the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, then you might see me there!:) I am so excited. I absolutely love the Highland Games and no one celebrates Scottish tradition quite like the GMHG. I especially love watching "Scottish wrestling". I find it so hot!! The men compete bare-chested and barefoot wearing a kilt.YUM!!! Oh boy that is soo sexy!!! Ok, I need to stop drooling and get my ass off of the computer because I have some errands to run before my big day tomorrow. I will tell you all about my adventures when I get back. I am also looking forward to this trip because I am going with a friend that I have known since the 7th grade, who I haven't seen but once or twice since I graduated high school in 1988. I found her again on Facebook and was shocked to find she had moved away to the same state as me!! What a coincidence!! I am a good 12 hour drive from my homestate, so to find anyone I knew in school this far away from home is quite exciting to me. My friend, Lisa lives about 4 hrs. from me now but that is a lot closer than 12 hrs. and this way we get to see each other a lot more. I took some pics on the 4th of July and thought I would share them with you....hope you like them. Let me know!!:) Have a great weekend!!
