As it seems to happen every now and again, I feel so behind in posting! Maybe it’s just because Thursday through Sunday really was an Epic Holiday Weekend…. so, in order to get it all, I’m just gonna toss a bunch of photos up and comment here and there. Hope that’s ok with y’all.
Thursday: Tacoma Rainiers Game with the Gang!
Kanarie had a brill-o idea to hit up the cheap dogs and beer night at the Tacoma Rainiers.
The beer turned out to be a little too cheap for our collective taste buds (total small-brew snobs here in the northwest). Ah well. But, as an admitted hot-dog junkie, the ballpark dogs were exactly what I expected. And just what I wanted!
Friday: Baking and a White Trash Birthday.
See prior post about lefse. We also attended a fancy dress party based on the “White Trash” theme. Now, this usually translates to an Appalachian Trailer Park sort if thing… but I had a niggling distaste on my conscience. Something about dressing up to cast judgement on an entire social class and some unfortunate and weirdly popular-to-emulate fashion choices.
OK, so let’s pretend that I’m not so high on my horse (I have cheerfully donned a mullet wig or two in the past, after all), and I’ll just show you how I dealt with it: a literal usage of white-trash costumery. Specifically, some tall kitchen bags and a Top Foods tiered train.
Saturday: Happy Independence Day!
Starting at 10 am, we were already immersed in the rarity of a hot and sunny July 4th in the northwest. So we enjoyed them all to the hilt: a swimming pool, a lake, and all my favorite F-words…. Fireworks, Friends, Floaties, and Flan.
Need I say more? Nah.
