Happy 4th....and 5th, and 6th, 7th & 8th...

Sorry I've been a bit MIA lately, I've been an editing MACHINE lately. You can check out the bad boys who have been keeping me away from EHT lately. I am excited because I think I'm going to get to go to bed before 1 tonight, wooo-hoo!

But I did take a little break this weekend for 4th of July. I'm not a huge 'decorator for the holiday' person, but for some reason I love 4th of July decorations, so I was excited to host a party last night :) We had over some of my buds from high school. It was great to get to catch up with everyone, and gave me a great excuse to decorate, make pies, and buy flowers :)
What's more american than an ice cold coca-cola?? Don't worry, the beer was added soon after.
Pete dressed in his sunday best for company. At least while I was holding a treat over his head.

How do you like Grizzly Ryan??

After Dinner we had sparker fun trying to write our names in photos! 

Can you guess the names?? Now, no cheating Ryan, Lindsay, Kristen, Josh, Brian and Me...wait...;)

Hope you all had a lovely and safe holiday weekend!


  1. Fun Fun Fun!! The coke bottles and flags on your cupcakes are the best.

    So when you did the sparkler pictures did you use a tripod and set it for nighttime shots and set the shutter to just be open longer?

  2. Sorry it took me a while to respond! We did the sparkler pics by setting a low ISO (200) and then a high aperture (22) and long exposure (13 seconds I believe....maybe 8...) on a tripod. It was really fun! You should try it!

  3. Absolutely LOVE the sparkler pics. You have some talented friends. ;)
