Summer Saturday

That three day weekend and another week flew by.  I must say I had a great time all three days last weekend.  My diet got killed and so did my exercising.  It was totally worth it though.  I think.

Frozen yoghurt came to Eastern Iowa (yay!) so of course we had to get some.  Friday night, Saturday night, Monday night and Wednesday night.  Yes, this was a part of the diet killer. 
Don't be fooled by the look on my bro's face - he was actually very happy to get some froyo.

Saturday my sisters and I met several friends at a waterpark (I know, you're thinking, do they even have those in Iowa?!).  We had a great time swimming, sliding, and sunburning (is that a word?).  And to those of you who wondered, yes, there is a rather sizeable waterpark in Eastern Iowa - who woulda thought?

Sunday evening we attended the wedding of some friends.  The wedding was beautiful, the food was delicious, the company was delightful and the dancing was amazing.  And I didn't take a single picture.  I'll have to see if I can get some from my brother's camera.  The wedding was about 1-1/2 hours away and we didn't get home until 2 am.

Monday we had a cookout with friends, then went to watch fireworks.  There was a carnival going at the park at the same time, and every person that you never knew lived in this area was there.  The night involved sidestepping and weaving through lots of people, running into friends we didn't know were there, and talking in the parking lot for about an hour waiting for everyone else to leave so we didn't have to waste gas waiting in line. 

Then it was back to real life again on Tuesday, and the rest of the week flew by.  It was dinner and froyo (again!) with my siblings last night and today, I have studying to do.  My summer class ends tomorrow and I need to get some papers written and a quiz taken.

Also, that resolution to not shop for clothes until my trip - I did stick to it last week, but I'm really wanting to reverse it.  We'll see if I can keep it up.  And here's my Friday outfit.

Ahhh, frozen yogurt! YUM!! I could eat it every single day. We go at least once a week basically. At least it's healthier than ice cream, right?! Haha!

frozen yogurt is actually a pretty healthy snack! so don't feel too bad about it! I became obsessed with it when my husband and I were living in Colorado!

also, so cool you are from Iowa. You are the first person I have ever seen/known/heard of from Iowa!!!

Shush!!! You're from Iowa?! I saw that you were following and the next thing I saw was your location! We just moved here from Texas...we love it here, but it still takes some getting used to after living in the same place your entire life! Loved stopping by!!
