Happy 4th of July!!!

As a random note, if I had one dollar for every burrito I've eaten this week, I would have about 4 dollars. 5 dollars after lunch today. But it's not all as bad as it sounds - only one burrito was of the Qdoba-bad-for-you-smothered-in-queso kind. The other ones have been with low-carb whole wheat tortillas (only 80 calories each), grilled chicken, lots of salsa, veggies, avocado and low-fat sour cream and cheese. Each one is about 350 calories or so and oh so filling and yummy.

We're off to Michigan this afternoon, to enjoy the following:

Big beers at the WillowsPatriotic jello shots
Richmond vs. The World flip-cup tournament

As our good friend (and lake party host) Tom said in the evite:

"Benjamin Franklin, inventor, statesman, and forefather of our great nation once said, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." So I ask you, what better way to honor our forefathers and birth of our nation than tipping a few back on the fourth? In fact, it would be unpatriotic not to do so. You don't want to be unpatriotic do you? Do you? No. I didn't think so. "

Happy 4th of July!
