Z picked me up from work last night and after half-hour of driving around Fells we FINALLY found a parking spot. It’s times like these that make me wish we had a parking pad….

After the stress of playing “hunt for a parking spot” it was time to unwind with a drink while waiting for the grill to heat up. I’m a fan of the Skinnygirl brand of cocktails and was excited to find they now make “Skinny Minis”! Each bottle is one glass worth and is only 37 calories! MUCH better than your typical margarita.  Since I use club soda with everything, I added some Trader Joe’s lime soda to the glass for a refreshing bubbly beverage.


Being one of the biggest BBQ days of the year, we of course just HAD to make burgers. I coated the turkey burgers with low sodium soy sauce before tossing them on the grill. We also wanted to make sweet potato fries, because let’s face it, they’re irresistible. We simply brushed them with olive oil & seasoned with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Finally, Z picked up some corn while at the store earlier in the day so we added that to the menu as well.

It’s a man’s job

Dinner is served.

We had time to kill before the fireworks so we finished up Season 2 of How I Met Your Mother. Although skeptical at first, I’m LOVING the show!

Then around 9:30 we hauled the ladder up to the third floor, climbed out our window and made our way up to the roof. We ended up with a spectacular view! The fireworks were great and the orange full-moon was beautiful.

We became skilled at self-timer during our travels in Egypt.

A fun and festive fourth with the fiance (now THAT’s alliteration!).
