Fireworks in the Neighborhood...

Yesterday turned out to be a really fun day! Aaron and I went with both of our moms to see Eclipse which was the best of the movies so far. And I'm 100% Team Jacob still. Now, I don't think Bella is good enough for him, so it's probably best that she choose Edward. :)

Then we went to my sweet little cousin's 1st b-day party. Unfortunately, Mother Nature decided to let it pour right at party time so there were a LOT of people crammed into a house for a while. It was lots of fun anyways and we got to see lots of our family.

My back started hurting pretty bad following all of this since I'd been sitting in less-than-comfortable chairs for a while, so I took a bath and realized that I didn't feel up to going to our last stop for the day. We were going to go to our friend's house in Edmond and watch fireworks and hang out. So, I felt like I was letting Aaron down and decided to do a little sobbing in the tub. Nothing cuter than a round girl crying in the tub...

Aaron again reminded me why he's the best husband in the world (sorry if you thought yours was the best), and suggested we go out front and do some fireworks that we had leftover from several years ago. So, we did. And what's great is that we live very much in city limits, and quite a few of our neighbors were out doing the same thing. It was quite a show!

We have about 5 policemen who live on our street and one even drove by while we were out there, and didn't even slow down. Guess they expect this type of behavior from people who have a goat in their backyard... This is what our driveway looked like this morning.
And the sidewalk...

Too bad the neighbors had already cleaned theirs up, because it was even crazier. Important thing is that we had a great time and all of the cars and houses are intact!
Oh, and I found nursing bras yesterday... Finally broke down and realized that I'm going to need them. I also realized that my knockers are going to be a lot bigger than my normal. I had to buy the L/XL to give me enough room when my milk comes in. The S/M was already a little snug!!! Aaron thinks I need to work on a modeling contract while I've got the curves... :)


  1. Ok, I'll give your man 2nd prize after mine, haha! Really, he sounds like an awesome guy who knows just what to say and do. Lucky girl. :-)

  3. Proud of you for buying nursing bras! You're going to like breast feeding (and the curves that go with it!)

  4. What a fun weekend. Sorry your back hurt so bad though.

    Oh and I'm just dying to see Eclipse. I will probably go next week when my hubby gets back in town though. I can't wait!
