So yesterday was Marshfield’s 134th annual Fourth of July Parade.
Just a little fun fact: Marshfield (the town that I have lived in my entire life) currently holds the title of longest running & largest July 4th Parade west of the Mississippi.
So anyways, yesterday was the parade, and I spent the entirety of working for Christenberry’s Tea Room that is located right off of the square in Marshfield. Cassie currently works there (as their only employee) but she is leaving for college in St. Louis, and surprise surprise, I’m sticking around good old Marshfield for community college. :) So that means that her job at the tea room turns into MY job at the tea room :) So anytime you are in the Springfield area, be sure to stop by for some coffee (or tea, or frapps, or lattes, or iced coffees, or smoothies, or anything really..haha). :)
So we spent our morning/afternoon serving up tea, chicken caeser wraps, coffee, and, my favorite, cheesecake parfaits (cheesecake + fresh blueberries & strawberries. yumsss!). It was a fun and stress free way of making money, I loved it. I can’t wait to actually start working there :)
(cassie and i… hard at work of course. ;] )
after the parade, we have a fish fry everyyy year, momma told me a few days ago to make some red velvet cupcakes (they are my specialty), but i got so ridiculously busy these last few days, that she decided to make them herself. they turned out adorable :)
my mom is so crafty! obviously, that must be where i got it from :)
i have so much going on this week!
tonight, cass and i are going to Ozark for fireworks at a family-friend’s home. we went last year and of course, the experience was worth blogging about. holy cow it was fun, scary, and a big mess of emotions! i hope such mayhem ensues this year :)
tuesday (or so) cassie and i are going to downtown springfield to shop at some local stores, try out some different coffee shops since Rendezvous went bye-bye (didn’t like it that much anyways..) and *drumroll..* schedule my tattoo appointment! Tis true, I am getting one in the next few weeks :)
Friday night I am going to yet another springfield Cardinals game with my friend Daily.
And then sometime in the next week.. a special surprise is coming up :)
More on that one later ;)
have a happy happy fourth :)
