Happy birthday Mr. President... umm... I mean, America...

I had a moment yesterday.
It was one of those times that you know something is going wrong... but you just.   CAN'T.   stop.   it.
Yeah... one of those.

I bought a cute new blue and white dress for the 4th of July.

I had been invited out on a house boat with some friends of mine.
We swam.
We grilled.
We ate the festive food I made.
Homemade chocolate chip cookies colored to look like the flag

Chocolate, Strawberries, & Marshmallows
Then the sun was setting... we all decided to get our pictures taken in front of the sunset.
I (being the residential photographer) took everyone's cameras in hand and told them to go pose at the bow of the boat.

I was doing just fine.... until a gust of wind came up.

I had a Marilyn Monroe moment.

Except with me... I wasn't in a movie... and I had cameras in both hands that I couldn't get set down... and my WHOLE skirt decided to fly up.  So even though I was pushing down on one side... the other was coming up.

So... what do my lovely friends do??
Do they come to my rescue??
Oh. no.
They take pictures and laugh at me FIRST!!!

So... yeah... nothing like celebrating America's birthday by giving the whole lake a peep show.
Yea me.


  1. I always ALWAYS am afraid that will happen. It happened to a friend of mine at church as we were in line for communion.

  2. I love the title! And with legs like that, the lake should just consider itself lucky. ;)

  3. Lol oh dear...I guess I have that accident to look forward to because you know what happens to you happens to me and vice versa. You know, I have a wedding coming up at the end of the month and my dress is a bit of a Marilyn
