Unlike other years, Mark and I had a very relaxing Fourth of July. We spent the day at Rogers Community Auction. In the evening, we cooked a couple local, grass fed steaks and we grilled them at home. They were delicious.
During my birthday weekend, I spent the afternoon with my college friend Lauren, who I rarely get to see nowadays. We were supposed to go to Sandcastle, but then things happened, so we opted for the local wave pool instead.
We got to hang out, so that's all I could really ask for. I hadn't seen her since my wedding last October. Yikes.
My dad got me a birthday gift that he ordered in May, yet it still didn't come in until this past weekend. He was teasing me about it every time I saw him. I found out over the weekend he got me a limited edition Nightmare Before Christmas cuckoo clock. Pretty dang cool.
It kind of relates to my wedding, but that's a whole other story.
Another birthday gift was Big Red, Biggie for short, that Kim got me. Thanks to her, I'm now officially a pet owner! Ha. He's actually pretty cool and low maintenance, so he's probably the perfect pet for me right now.
I got to see my cousins, who are in from Florida. We went swimming and went to the mall to hang out. And we played with the Party Party app.
How was your month?
