Like it's Dynamite
Once again, I apologize for the inconsistent and lackluster quality of my cell phone's camera. But you can still probably tell that my living room looks like a fireworks stand.
The grand total spent on fireworks is $499. So far. Mu-ah-ah-ah-ah-aaaah!
We won't be spending much more on fireworks, since we had several other financial demands pop up over the last 2 weeks (family reunion, Six Flags, burned-out television light cartridge, several people coming in from out-of-town, etc.), but we'll probably spend another $20-$25 on little stuffs, like roman candles and bottle rockets, etc.
If anyone decorates for the 4th of July, I beseech you to check out Dollar Tree. Ho. Ly. Crap!! Awesome stuff for a dollar apiece. I have so many American flags right now, bought in 3-packs for a buck a pack. LED paper lanterns, bunting, glow sticks...it's gonna be a scene, man.
I got the burgers, hot dogs, and BBQ chicken on deck, chips and drinks, cupcakes...everything but shish-ka-bob, because I simply haven't got the energy to chop a 12-pound haunch of pork butt into bite-sized pieces this year. Next year. Probably.
Anyway, decorations go up Friday, cupcakes get baked on Saturday, and the only stuff I have left to buy is all the produce, like corn-on-the-cob and stuff for the veggie & fruit trays.
3rd of July, here we come!!
