baby, you're a firework.

fourth of july, via my iphone...



summer is here in full swing and this weekend was nice and warm. we had a wonderful holiday weekend.

friday, nicholas and i had a movie date and saw Midnight in Paris... it was so cute. i would recommend seeing it! and, i really want to revisit paris soon. oh and so random but, i loved the name of rachel mcadam's character in the movie - Inez.

saturday, we laid out by the pool at our apartment. i started reading The Hunger Games and I'm so into it! I'm already halfway through the second book of the trilogy, Catching Fire. that evening we went over to my new friend jenny's house for an al fresco dinner party. we played a board game and drank (too much) sangria and ate a delish summer lasagna. lately, even when its in the 80s and 90s during the day, the temperature drops of to the upper 50s. but, on saturday, the weather was warm enough during the day, that the evening was gorgeous. it cooled off, but was still so enjoyable outside.

sunday... well sunday we had big plans. live music at a nearby winery and music in the park. but, like i said, i had a little too much sangria, so i spent my day lounging in bed and by the pool trying to get rid of my wine headache.

monday, we drove up to sausalito, just north of the golden gate bridge. we took chairs and blankets and a cooler full of snacks. we found a park with live music right on the water at the marina. we stayed there all afternoon and evening until the spectacular fireworks display over the bay. we could also see the san francisco fireworks show in the distance... so cool!

oh, and i did pretty well on my to-do list... checked them all except that i couldn't find any sparklers at the last minute and i substitued patriotic strawberries for the apple pie. :)

i hope everyone had a wonderful fourth!
