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!!

  4. Actually, they're less than six blocks from our house, so if anything happens, they might know about it before I do, lol.

    And I have a nice big fat (expensive) finale cake! Youtube "One Bad Mother Firework." Tis awesome. It goes waaaaay up, but it still feels like the fireworks are going to hit you in the head.
