So...July 4

We had so much fun at my in-law's yesterday! 

My mother-in-law grilled hamburgers, had baked beans, corn on the cob, and a yummy apple crisp for dessert {with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, of course!}. 

We visited, laid out by the pool, swam, listened to music and just relaxed. 

And all was hunky dory...until I decided that I would challenge my brother-in-law, Todd, to a diving board jumping competition. 

We did pencil jumps, cannon balls, toe-touches...and the dreaded dive. 

I'm not used to their pool {which has a Pebble Tec bottom, by the way}, and I dove way out, as opposed to way down. 

...and I slammed my face into the bottom of their Pebble Tec-bottomed pool. 

I'm so, so lucky that I didn't break my nose, or worse, my neck. 

But let me tell you, I look like I got punched in the face

My nose has this giant scrape on it that continually bleeds, my lips are insanely swollen, and I have a giant cut above my top lip that makes it hard to chew, swallow, put lip gloss on...and generally just talk. 

I tried to cover it with make-up today, but I think I just made it worse. I look like a drag queen. 

Needless to say, my face is swollen and I have NO CLUE how women get collagen injections in their lips. Ouch! 

I'm not putting a picture on here because it's so embarrassing. 

So, a warning to everyone: Look before you leap dive!
