K I gotta stop because at some point people stop reading but just know-------THERE IS MORE. 
Ok, funny things people (Mark) have said..

Mark is the funniest person ever, i'm not just saying that because i'm married to him either. I called him an onion the other day because unless you know him really well, you don't know him at all! He was offended that I compared him to Shrek, naturally. BUT! Anyway! He has just been extra funny the past few weeks and of course I only wrote down two of them. 
As we were shopping for shrimp for dinner... "Oh man! The sea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
After buying tickets for Inside Out "I'm definitely gonna cry during this movie"

Most of these quotes I do on these happy lists are "ya had to be there" quotes. Oh well!

ANYWAY. 4th of July is this weekend and i'm so happy. Just like any other basic white gurl I love the 4th. We are going to a family bbq and then going to the real game! 
Here are some throwback picz of the last few 4ths around these parts. 

Last year was so amazing, not sure anything can top it. Being in D.C for the 4th was the ultimate American experience, I think. I made a video to go along with it, you can watch that here.

The summer before...I don't remember what we did? Obviously nothing huge, but hey, I had these American Flag shorts and a newborn in my arms so three emoji thumbs up.

The year before that, Mark was on his mission so I went to the real game with my favorite twitter peeps @bfordham6 and @ryansnow125
It was fun fun fun fun! Also I am like 35 pounds lighter in this picture and IT SHOWS. And after I hit publish I am going to the gym. Amen.

Any fun plans for the 4th?? Have a good one!
