Fourth of July

Happy Fourth, a day late! We spent the entire day at home and enjoyed a low-key holiday. I was able to get some cleaning done, which should mean more free time this weekend (how about having every Wednesday off? I could get used to breaking up the week like that...although today at work I was definitely a little sluggish).
Showing off her latest school project, Uncle Sam style
And another school project...with most of the stars already ripped off
For dinner, we celebrated with the Pioneer Woman's delicious (and spicy) Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork (on sliders). She makes hers in the oven, but I like making it in the crock pot, especially on works days. We also had corn on the cob, sauteed zucchini, beans, and steak fries. I also tried this Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade recipe, which made it feel like the perfect summer meal. (Completely forgot to take pictures, though.) 
 Patriotic dessert kabobs along with homemade hot fudge sauce to dip. Delish!
It was a good day at home and now I'm even more ready for a weekend at home.

We returned to the weekday hustle today and couldn't be happier that the weekend is right upon us.
By the way, she's a pro in heels...just like her momma ;)

Hope you had a happy Fourth!
