My Fourth of July weekend was everything it should be. Complete with:
Eating out a lot
A very serious conversation over Bert & Rocky's ice cream with Amanda, visiting from the Frozen North, about the importance of ice cream placement in your cup/cone - your favorite goes on the bottom - and how shocked we are that people don't grasp this. Also, our shock over people liking vanilla ice cream. They always follow up this admission by saying, "But you can add things to it." And to that we say anything that needs to be added to is AUTOMATICALLY INFERIOR!!!! Clearly we are passionate about this. (Sorry for the rant. Vanilla makes me cranky.)
It also included a frenzy of hat making. My friend is throwing a bridal shower tea party and she saw the hats I made for the Royal Wedding and asked if I'd make some for it. As it is officially my new dream to live in London and make hats for the Queen I decided it would be good practice. So I took the gig.
