BBQ

On Friday, we had our first ever party at our condo! It went really well, and we had a blast. I may have a had a bit too much fun if you get my drift!

Here are some pictures:
We made ribs. They turned out great! I was so glad, because it was the first time we tried them! Not always wise, but this time it worked out!
Everyone loves this one, because B is giving me such an odd look! I bet he was thinking "She needs to slow down in the beverage department"!
My best friend, Sarah, and my brother. They're both in our wedding, and I imagine we'll be in their's in a few years. She and I have been friends 10 years!
My brother and me:
Yes, I bought sparklers! Its just not The Fourth without them! My friend Joe is in the background. He's the guy who took those great pictures of me last Fall.

Sitting out front and watching the Birmingham fireworks with our neighbors. I'm looking rough....

On Sunday, I had a really wild adventure. I'm still waiting to upload those pictures!

UPDATED TO ADD- I had a comment asking about my brother and best friend's wedding. Yes, they are dating, and I assume will be married within a few years! They're both in Law School right, so I'd imagine they will wait until that is over. I couldn't be happier for them!

I love all the 4th of July pictures you posted. It looks like you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend. Oh, and you do NOT look "rough" at all, actually, I was thinking how pretty you looked in these photos!

I have a feeling he was just thinking, "Wow, my fiance is a babe!" That's quite common among men:).

It looks like you had a great time! There is nothing better than a successful party at your own place.

It looks like you had a great time and I don't think you look "rough" at all. The ribs look delicious, too!

I drank a little on the Fourth as well. I tried something new called "Firefly." It tasted just like brewed iced tea. So refreshing.

Food, drinks, family, friends, and fireworks. It's what the Fourth is all about.

Glad you had a nice day! :)

Looks like a great holiday! Wish I could've had "too much to drink" this holiday. It's not quite as much fun when you can't drink. ;)

What a great celebration! I don't think you look rough at all - you and B look cute :)

When you talk about being in 'their wedding', does that mean each individual weddings, OR are they dating and you mean 'their' wedding? (Your brother and BFF)
