Weekend Recap- 4th of July Style!

Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday and i’m just now recapping our weekend!!  It was a long weekend that seemed to go slow and fly by at the same time… if that makes sense?!  I have picture overload on the blog today so bear with me 🙂

We hosted the hub’s family (and 9 pups!) for the weekend and we had lots of fun!  We attended our annual firework show at one of the hubs coworker’s house and it was phenomenal!! I’m honestly so glad we have this tradition!

Meeting up and eating/drinking before the Fireworks in Durand!

Last year, my Mama and family attended the show with us! We tend to switch it up every year 🙂

We got home late (as usual!) and therefore it was bedtime for everyone.  The next day, the hubs and his brother golfed a bit while us girls (and Marcus!!) shopped our butts off at the Outlet Mall!!

Once we got back home, the hubs started the Crawfish boil (straight from Louisiana!) and everyone else played some lawn games…

… or snuggled this little girl and the other baby puppies!

We then had the second batch and a quick photo shoot 🙂

After dinner, we finished playing lawn games and started in on the “beer pong” while starting a fire for s’mores!


This girl was my partner (my sister-in-law) and our theme song was “All we do is Win, Win, Win no matter What, What,What…” unfortunately, we never did win a game but we were close!

The night came to a close (for myself at least since I was exhausted!) but the family stayed up and played some Presidents & Assholes (flashback to college days!).

The next day, the hubs and the guys (minus Marcus) went for more golf while we mini-golfed and hit up Psycho Suzi’s for a few drinks and pizza!

I love me some Psycho Suzi’s but can I just say that we had the WORST service EVER.. and it wasn’t even busy!!! Our server never came back to us after she told us we could switch to a different table (in the shade) until it was time for the check… I literally had to go to the bar to get refills AND when we asked for an additional plate for the pizzas- the runner said “you’ll have to ask your server for that..” umm what?? So don’t worry… we had to get up and get one ourselves!! Not sure what was going on that day but… not a great impression for out of towners!

We went shopping after (imagine that!) and picked up some yummy treats from Trader Joe’s! And let me tell you… my soon-to-be (hopefully within the next year or a little more?!) sister-in-law makes up the cutest cheese platters! Shout out to her for this one she styled 🙂 Oh yeah, and we enjoyed some Sangria this weekend (first, she made some strawberry lemonade Sangria and then after we finished that off.. we went the easy route and purchased this Pre-made Sangria.  Seriously so great too if you add a splash of lemon-lime soda!!

The hubs pulled out the Ronco and made some chicken for a late dinner Sunday night, per the request from my brother-in-law!

Monday, most of the family left (my brother and sister-in-law and their significant others) and the rest of us enjoyed the day at the Zoo (umm can I take a flamingo home yet?!?!?!) and enjoyed more mini-golf!

I did get quite a few hole-in-ones this weekend… so now i’m a professional mini-golfer.. so there’s that..

Overall, we all had a lot of fun this weekend and it went way fast!  It’s nice to have company in town since we don’t get to very often… but we’ll be back to see them soon… in 48 hours!!

I’ll leave you with this… he’s such a little mischievous boy but we love him anyway 🙂

Now to the part everyone has been anticipating… the winner of the Nordstrom Giftcard is…
