Excitement Turned Disappointment and A Very Happy 4th

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! Ours was a pretty good one, though all I could think of was last year at this time we were watching fireworks with my family at the lake, and me and Andy were getting ready to get married!

Anyway, yesterday morning we woke up and headed to Lowe's (because any new house has at least 4 trips to Lowe's, we have had 2 so far). After a quick trip to Lowe's, we hit a path near our new house for a light run. When we moved in I was super excited because there was a nice park just down the road and we spotted what looked to be a trail in a loop around the park. We figured this would be a great morning path to run... wrong.  We started running and per my new trusty Garmin, it was only 0.4 miles, and then a dead end. WHAT?!?! We had been so excited, just to be let down by a dead end. We made our own loop around the park, which was fine, but not what we were looking for. Still on the hunt for a good path to run, other than around my neighborhood (I have already plotted some of those on MapMyRun). If all else fails, there is a nice 3 mile path to run on post.

At least I got to try out my new toy, and I am a big fan! Plus, you've gotta love a 4th of July mani!

Yesterday afternoon we just hung out and went to lunch at a great place in the mall called The White Buffalo Food & Beer Co. I had a sweet tea and the Thai Chicken Wrap, sooooo good. And then we went to see Despicable Me 2, I was so happy we got to see it since I love the first one, and it did not disappoint. Finally we came home and hung out and I made Ranch Pasta Salad to bring to our neighbors house for a cookout. It was a lot of fun to meet our new neighbors and the little cul-de-sac crew. They set off some fireworks and then it was off to bed for me, because sadly, I have to work today.

But, the celebrations aren't over because tonight we are going to see Trace Adkins followed by our anniversary on Sunday. I will be sure to share our wonderful weekend with you on Monday. Hope you have a great one!
