This is what I wore for the July Fourth holiday.  We spent the holiday in the neighborhood with our friends at the local beer garden.  The weather was gorgeous, though a little hot. From around 4 pm through after 10 pm, we enjoyed the beautiful weather, beers, food and good company.  It was a perfect way to spend a summer holiday.

Knowing I was going to be outside in the sun all day, I broke this hat out of storage.  I’m not one to usually wear hats but if I know I’m going to be in the sun all day I usually will.  Especially at the beach, which I had gone to the day prior.

A Tree No Longer Grows in Brooklyn

I noticed while putting this post together that all of a sudden, the tree is gone. This spot is my go to spot for quick photos, and there was always a tree in the background. Now there’s just a stub.

I asked my husband about it and he said some city sanitation workers had come by earlier in the week and they took it down, citing something about it being dead and “about to fall and kill someone”. Guess it was a zombie tree. Jokes aside, I was tremendously sad by this because just the week prior, I had spotted a nest full of baby birds inside a hole in the tree. All I can think about now is if those baby birds are okay and if the sanitation workers even noticed they were in there. My husband being the sweetheart he is tried to assure me the mother bird probably took her babies to safety, but I don’t know.

Sad.

In sharp contrast to yesterday’s post, on day fifteen I went totally incognito. I passed on neon pink and went for nature’s camo, animal print. With my army green jacket and shades I’m practically invisible!

Debut

On Saturday morning I made my boxing debut.  Like a for real one at a real boxing gym, not the silly girlie-cardio ones at the local gym.  My friend who’s a professional personal trainer talked me into it.  I initally was totally freaked out I wasn’t in good enough shape, but totally held my own.  I did just as many push-ups as the 250 pound men did, and almost held my own a little too well.  Apparently my hand wraps sucked and I totally busted up my knuckles, even splitting one open.  After the class, my friend and I went to get mani-pedis and it was fun trying to explain my knuckles to the nail tech.

Also making their first debut: my leopard print booties.  I love these things.  Wore this Saturday evening to go out with my husband and friends.  We went out for dinner and then to a local bar and didn’t end up making it home until 3 am.  Gotta love fun summer evenings!
