Good Morning, everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and is looking forward to the shortened work week ahead. Only three more days till the weekend… you got this.
There is something about the fourth of July that I love. I consider myself to be a very patriotic person, I truly love this country we live in and have the utmost respect for the men and women (past, present, and future) who put their lives on the line for us each day.
I had a very low-key weekend. Nick and I spent most of our time running errands, spending time with our families, and organizing things. We watched the fireworks in my town on Saturday night which is something that is kinda special for us. I think part of the reason why we enjoy them so much is at the end of our very first date we found ourselves watching some fireworks in his town after a really great day with some old friends. Certainly a day i’ll never forget. On Sunday we had some time with his family over dinner. Had a nice meal and got to play with Otis, their new puppy! Monday, we originally had plans to go hang out at a bar during the day and then a BBQ with my family at night but we actually found ourselves cleaning up the deck furniture with my dad instead. All our hard work yesterday paid off though because it ended up being something different to enjoy. When I was younger my sisters and I never really paid attention outside so no one was utilizing this great space we have, now that its all cleaned up, I am looking forward to many more nights out there.
Of course the weekend was spent in lots of red, white, and blue. All holiday’s aside, I truly love that color combination to begin with. Its so timeless. I had lots of fun this weekend taking pictures on my new phone. I upgraded to the iPhone 7 Plus and it was seriously such a great decision. The camera was everything I have been dreaming of. I normally don’t really care about the newest phone out etc. but I have been waiting for the chance to get my hands on this one. I am extremely happy with my decision. Not having to lug a huge camera around is kinda nice lol.
I’ve been wearing red, white, and blue since Friday rolled around. On my more casual days it was shorts and a cute tee with my Jacks and dressed up in a dress and jacks on my more dressy days. I’ve been experimenting with curling my hair. I am determined to master it so I can have a new go-to hairstyle and I have finally gotten it down. My goal for the fourth this year was to look as though I stepped out of a J.Crew catalog and I was pretty happy with my and Nick’s outfit choices. Ill be sure to have everything linked for you below so you can check out some of the pieces that I wore throughout the weekend!
I hope everyone had a great holiday again and I’d love to hear all about it. Feel free to let me know down in the comments below.
