Because of all the commotion in the past few days, I wasn't too keen on blogging tonight, but as Aaron reminded me, the longer I … Continue reading The Fourth of July Blur!

Megan made this ammmmaaazing ice cream pie with Oreos, ice cream, homemade fudge sauce, Spanish peanuts and Cool Whip (Oreo Orgy, anyone? Haha). She also made the first guacamole I ever liked.
