Happy 4th!

8 Jul

Hello all!  For all of you from the US, I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!  And for all of you not from the US – I hope you also had a great regular weekend!  I had a great long 4-day weekend at my parent’s house a few hours away.  It was great to unplug from technology and soak up the time together.  My whole family got together and we enjoyed a little bit of this…


Group bike ride! We had a lot of fun, though it’s been awhile since I rode a bike. Kind of made me wish I had a road bike…

We also enjoyed a bit of…


Red, white, and blue colored desserts. A 4th of July classic. Yum!

Along with eating lots of not-so-healthy treats we managed to…


Get in a bit of skiing! My sister and I ready to go!


Wohoo! We still have it!

Of course we watched some fireworks – a great show this year!


Fireworks over the lake – beautiful!

Between the family time, running around, pounds of cookies, fireworks, and sun it was a great weekend.  I even managed to get in my Jillian Michael’s DVD with my future sister in-law (brides-to-be getting ready)!  That’s the best part about a 30 minute workout DVD, I can always find time for it!  The only thing that could’ve made it better was if Adam could’ve been there.  He’s still busy working as a slave at the hospital.  He survived his first week and I’ll get to see him next Friday…it feels like it has been forever!

Tonight I am auditioning for White Christmas – one of my absolute favorite shows.  I can’t wait!  My audition prep has left me little time for my dear little blog, but all the stress should be over tonight around 10 or 11… cross your fingers for me!  I can use all the positive thoughts I can get :)

I ADORE this musical movie – such a favorite. This is a dream role for sure! I have been very nervous waiting to audition!

More updates on my Jillian Michaels workouts and potential next steps in regards to no Insanity… stay tuned!


How was your holiday weekend?  How do you celebrate the 4th?

    Good luck for your audition! Your holiday weekend looked great fun – America always celebrates holidays better than the UK. We suck at celebrating anything (except for Christmas – we rock Christmas!).

      Thanks for the luck! I thought it went well – what a relief! And it was an awesome holiday :) I would LOVE to see how you guys celebrate Christmas! I’ve seen Love Actually – does that count?? It looked pretty amazing!

    That looks like an awesome 4th! The weather has been awful in ATL so no water sports this past weekend for anyone here. Biking is SUPER hard. I have a mountain bike and I use it on the road because, well, it’s all I’ve got! :) Definitely a great way to workout, though. GOOD LUCK (I know it’s late) on your audition/how did it go girly?!?!

      Thanks lady!! It was great :) Bummer about the weather – my bro and sister-in-law were excited to escape the ATL rain for the weekend. And yeah.. biking.. it’s hard! I feel you on the mountain bike thing…maybe someday we can get road bikes like big kids! ;) Thanks for luck! It went well… but you never know! We’ll see!
