Soggy 4th

Hi Friends
We're currently on day NINE of rain here in Atlanta. We did have 15 minutes of glorious sun on Friday in which you can bet, I threw on a swimsuit and laid out for all 15 minutes....and then it rained again. 

I'm probably joining an intramural ark building team this weekend if this keeps up. 

Needless to say, we had to get crafty this soggy July 4th. In lieu of cookouts and fireworks, I

Saw movies with girlfriends 
We saw White House Down....which has zero appeal for girls except for the fact that Channing Tatum is in it. Which now means this movie has tons of appeal for girls.  

....donned American colors complete with sparkle shorts...and galoshes. 

...went for a very wet 5 mile run. Ziploc baggies are my new running essential #protecttheiPhone #sweateveryday 

...and had an amazing basement cookout in

How did you celebrate?!

such cute outfits! I love the ziplock bag idea! It started raining when I was running the other day and was a mile in a half away from my car...which lead to an extremely fast mile and half run to my car in order to prevent my phone getting wet....and I had already run 5 miles..DEATH!!!

I such a sucky expat... as usual, I forgot about the 4th until it was the 4th. Luckily my husband took me out to dinner in celebration. Still some stars, strips and sparkles wouldn't have gone amiss.

We had two straight weeks of rain. Every day. And it was disgusting and awful. And after 3 days of sun, it is supposed to happen again. Not too pleased about it. That cat photo is the greatest.

You always look so pretty! My 4th was so boring that I can't even remember what I did.
