as it is a long weekend, i'll probably not be around much, just so you know. i'm excited about this weekend. i get to see my family. all of them from my side. my brother is leaving for graduate school in texas next month and i am really happy we get to see him before that.

i know it's not vacation pictures, but i thought a nice collection of fireworks pictures was in order for the day. :) so happy freedom celebrating day, i really am lucky to live in this country.

i got my hair cut yesterday. the verdict is still out, but i think i look a little like a bubblehead personally. we'll see what happens when i style it myself.

i have been craving this little concoction i made a few weeks ago. i could eat it every meal. it's the parsley in it that i love i think, i've made it 4 times in the last two weeks and i was gone for one of those weeks.

slice 1/2 a cucumber, then slice into quarters

dice up a medium to large sized tomato

chop up three or four tablespoons of fresh parsley

crumble in a tablespoon or two of feta cheese

drizzle a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar over the salad

and crack a bunch of pepper over the final product, mix well.
