A weekend full of surprises!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! I know a lot of people are off work today as well, so if you're one of the lucky ones then enjoy it! 
This weekend, per usual, I had to work. I was a little bummed out that I missed going to my uncle's cookout but they understood and even saved me some food. I didn't think I was going to get to end up having any fun over the 4th because of work but I got out of work on time SURPRISE and went with some friends and got to see some fireworks!
Surprise! One of my very good friends from college got engaged a few weeks ago and they've already scheduled their wedding for August (as in next month). I'm so surprised that it's happening so fast but hey, as a friend you support them. I've known him for FOREVER and I can't believe he's going to have a wife! Congrats Chad!!!

Saturday I went out shopping and was hoping to find something great in all of the holiday sales, well SURPRISE! I found not 1 but 2 dresses. I can't decide on which one to wear to the wedding so expect to see them tomorrow. I'll need everyone's opinion. 

And the best surprise, my best best best friend will be coming back into town next month! Yay! Which means another day at the lake and great times with friends!

What a fun weekend!

Fun weekend!

Ours kind of sucked weather wise. Nothing puts a literal damper on the holiday weekend like low clouds, rain and only 60 deg. outside.

Engagements are the best because that means a wedding, and who doesn't love a good wedding?
