Sticky Sweets, 4th of July, and Back to Work!!!

I got my new Stampin' Up! order in the other day, and part of it was the "Sticky Sweets" - they are basically embellishments that are sticky on both sides and you can stick to your project and then cover in glitter. I had fun playing with them - these use some retired SU! Designer Series background paper:

Fourth of July - we went to our friends' Missy & Dan's house on Friday for a cookout and fireworks and had a blast - here is Trevor rapping with the karaoke machine:

Double rainbow - it rained for at least an hour and then the biggest, most beautiful double rainbow appeared, and totally lit up the house that it ended at, it was so cool:

This afternoon (Sunday), we finally went out on Jeremy's new boat! We went with our friends Denise & Dave and their 3 kids, to a lake near our house. We spent about 3 hours and had a blast - here is Jeremy, in his glory:

Trev (he's going to be 16 in 18 days):
Denise and her daughter Livvie, 10 months old:
Back to work I go tomorrow after 2 weeks vacation. I haven't mentioned it, but I also start learning my new job tomorrow. I was promoted to Bursar a couple of weeks ago, pretty exciting. For those of you who remember, the woman who made me miserable at work was "let go". This is precisely why I'm always so adamant that I believe in karma. Sometimes it takes a while to catch up, but catch up it always does.

Hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July holiday! Peace.
