Happy 4th of July! or...Don't Catch the Yard on Fire!

from Normajeanscloset on Etsy

My feelings toward the Fourth of July are a lot like my feelings for New Year's Eve...I feel pressure to be doing something "big" and "fun" and  I always feel like everybody else is out doing fabulous things and I'm not. Yeah, yeah...    *world's smallest violin playing*
In actuality, my hubby and I decided he should work tonight because he gets extra pay for working on the holiday and we are trying to make more money. So it was a choice we made. Sometimes you just have to be a grown-up and do the practical thing! It's actually blissfully quiet right now and I'm rather enjoying getting some stuff done. Next year I'll do it up big!

So that's enough venting...I actually love Fourth of July because it's really the best time to rock the red, white and blue color scheme! On that note, here are some fun red, white and blue goodies I found on Etsy:

Aren't these the cutest? They're my size, too, so it's taking mucho willpower to resist buying them!

These shorts are up in my Etsy shop right now...aren't they great? I think the print is really cute. I'm a sucker for novelty prints :-)

Happy Fourth Everybody!!


  1. I love all of the red, white and blue things. I love wearing that color scheme all year round.
