This picture pretty much sums up how I feel today!
Yay, I'm so excited to receive my first ever blog awards! Thank you to the fabulous Cafe Bellini for the Sunshine Award! It totally made my day! Everyone should really check out her blog if you haven't already - it's precious!

Also, a big thank you to Erika at ~Tiptoe Butterfly~ for telling me to grab her blog award last week! So, so exciting! She asked to hear about weekend plans, and although mine are a little late, I will share what I did last weekend!
Last Saturday was my beautiful mother's birthday! Here is a picture of us at dinner! Isn't she just the cutest? We went to see a family movie afterwards!

I threw in a pic of me and my brother as well! I look short next to him, but he's just really tall. It was also my friend from Argentina's 24th birthday, so I hung out with friends later that night.
On Sunday, I celebrated the 4th of July with family! Here is a picture of me and my cousin! I'm totally rockin'' my American pride with the red, white, and blue. (Ignore the swimsuit line - eek!)

Oh and don't ask why I wore one-sleeve outfits back to back. I guess I was just suddenly really into them. They're totally my favorite at the moment! :)
