TGIF!!

Thank goodness Friday is here! I wen't home for lunch and it took everything I had to come back and finish out the day.

I'm so excited because this weekend my sisters and I are going to Schlitterbahn and we are also going to have a picnic lunch!

As kids we spent our summer days swimming at the local community center. Now, even as adults, we always arrange a sisters outing to the water park each summer. Hopefully I'll get some pics up later this weekend.

Summertime Musicals



Friday night my friend and I saw a fantastic performance of Dream Girls at Starlight Theater! It was H O T out, but the show was worth it. Best of all, my friend got our tickets for 50% off with her military discount. Can't beat that! I recommend the show if it's in your area.

Scary Storm

We had one super crazy scary storm blow through yesterday. Normally I'm a big chicken when ever the wind picks up. This storm had me running to the basement. Just so you know I'm not over exaggerating, take a look at the neighbors yard!



That's a heavy duty swing set blown to the ground.



This is their mangled trampoline which I personally saw lift off the ground and hit the back of their house!

I was so glad when that storm ended.

Pizza and Movie Night

Friday I hosted "Make Your Own" Pizza & Movie Night. It was lots of fun. Everyone enjoyed creating their own pizza. It wasn't my most crafty party, but here are a few pics.



All of the toppings. There was enough to make Spinach & Mushroom, Pepperoni, Cheese, Supreme, and Sausage Tomato Basil! I used pre-made personal pizza crusts to make things easier. Oh, and don't forget the chocolate pizza for dessert!



Beer and wine bar



Everyone making their pizzas.



Some of our creations! It was neat that they were all so different.



I found these cute pizza plates from Michael's for party favors.

Next months party is my birthday! We're having a Luau plus my husband is hosting a UFC fight. So I'm inviting the guys as well.
