4th of July weekend

We had ourselves a pretty glorious couple of days on the Lake of the Ozarks.  My parents have a condo there and they generously host me and Darrell (and our dogs) whenever we want to have a couple days away. It was the perfect destination for a 4 day weekend.  We took out my dad's boat and rode around, drink beer, and ate the best fish tacos ever.  

At sundown we'd head back to the condo and make dinner, usually a combination of whatever the 2 of us (by which I mean me and my Dad, the only chefs in this arrangement) felt like making.  I busted out my new favorite recipe for brussels sprouts pizza the night of the 4th.  I'll share the recipe soon!  

We had planned to stay the whole weekend, but thought it might be nice to have a couple days at home as well, so we headed back to St Louis Saturday morning and headed to Home Depot.  We did a few painting projects which I'll post and share soon, and even a little thrifting, where we picked up a vintage folding picnic table I painted up!  I am really excited about that one - it folds into the size of a guitar case, it's kind of amazing.  I'd never seen anything like that before!  

(Forgive the GIANT beer can...it was the only size they sold!)  

Then on Sunday night we couldn't believe our luck, we were given free tickets to the John Mayer show by a friend and it was such a wonderful night.  Gorgeous weather, and he was great, per usual.  This probably sounds very dorky, but I've seen John Mayer no less than 6 times.  I think I might have been his biggest fan in high school!

I was a little tired today, but it was totally worth it.  Hope all your holiday weekends were equally wonderful!
