Happy 4th of July!!! I am so excited for this long weekend, plus I have Monday off so it is a really long weekend! After two weekend being away I have a lot of housework to do, and a long to-do list to get though. I have a lot of books to read this weekend. The Hurricane is heading this way so we may get rained on all day today but I have some painting and some reading I can do if that happens so no worries. So let’s get to it so I can start relaxing.
Favorite Song: In hour of Independence Day I am sharing one of my favorite songs. It leaves me in tears every time I hear it. So powerful. To all the men and women past and present who fought for our freedom, god bless you!
Favorite Product: This Bronzing Powder from H&M is my new favorite thing. In the summer I get pretty tan so I only use a little bronzer to cover my face and that’s it, well besides my trusty Revitalift lotion with sunscreen. I have it in the gorgeous tan color and at $6.95 it doesn’t break the bank. Not overly shimmery and perfect for contouring too.
It was a rough day at work yesterday because people can’t hide their stupid.

Love your flag and the Sam’s Club card.
My husband’s nephew gets married today at
A hotel on the Delaware river right outside of Philadelphia!! Fireworks on the river.
Just put my flags out! Forever grateful I was born
Here and never take it for granted.
Love , SMD’s momma
Thank you. I was just glad he liked it. You looked beautiful all dressed up for the wedding. Hope you have a great time! Happy 4th.

I think it’s going to be a washout here, but a gorgeous weekend. Enjoy! Either way, it sounds like you’ve got it covered. 🙂 Cheers!
Yes, it has been raining here all day. Plenty to catch up on though so it will be a great weekend for sure. Hope you have a great long weekend!

Those cupcakes are too cute – perfect for summer! Happy 4th!
They would be perfect at the next BBQ. Happy 4th of July!

Haha I love the Zombie one. Those cupcakes are too cute.
It makes a lot of sense! Haha! I need to make them for a beach day weekend.
happy 4th to you! i unexpectedly got the day off so i’m still in my pjs!! and taking care of charlie
That sounds like the best way to spend the day. Hopefully Charlie is recuperating quickly.
Bwah ha ha, the Sam’s Club meme cracked me up. My other favorite one is the picture of putting treadmills around your house so the zombies just end up running and not going anywhere. Have a great fourth!
Haha!! That is a great one. The Dead, White and Blue marathon is on today! Happy 4th!
THOSE CUPCAKES!!! I need to make those asap!! Have a fantastic 4th of July and long weekend!
Aren’t they so cute!! The little graham cracker sand, too cute. Happy 4th of July!!

That flag is amazing! I can’t believe you made it yourself! Also, thank you for sharing that song- it always brings me to tears too, such a perfect song to listen to today to remember.
Thank you. It was something I knew my Dad would love as a veteran. It is the most patriotic song, it always gets me crying.
That cupcake is WAY too cute! I hope that you have a great long weekend and that things don’t get any worse from the hurricane (I saw your pics on Instagram.)
It is a really cute cupcake idea. It has been raining all day so hopefully it stays that way and doesn’t get worse.
haha love the zombies quote. good thing i have a membership! and love those cute cupcakes too 🙂
Then you are safe from the zombie apocalypse. Haha! They are perfect for a summer BBQ!
That flag is so cute! You did a great job!
Thank you. He seemed to really like it so that is all that mattered, even if I slammed a finger or two making it! 😉
kathy @ vodka and soda says
hahaha! instead of sams club (we dont have that here), i’d go to costco. but they’d need to jack up their security because they don’t really check for membership anymore!
So you’re saying they would let just any old zombie in. Not cool Costco, not cool! Bwahaha!
Melzie @ Ribbons & Rotor Blades says
Hmm I’ll have to try that bronzer!!! Thanks for sharing it!!
It is really a great finish and I can get away with wearing just that in the summer.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
That song is super powerful to me, too! And the flag is suuuper cute!!
I hope you had a great 4th 🙂
It is one of the best songs. Thank you. It was a labor of love. Hope you had a great weekend!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
LOLOL @ Sam’s Club as a refuge.
I hope you enjoy your day off tomorrow!
It’s the perfect plan! Haha! Thank you. I still have some house projects but some beach time and more reading is planned too!
So jealous that you’re off, love the cupcake, and Andrew took a pic of me napping yesterday and yeah, definitely looked more like that second pic! Ew.
Haha! Yeah, it is never pretty when you are napping. The smushed face never lies! 😉 I am so happy to have another day off to play catch up.
That cupcake is awesome, if I were artistic I’d try to make them!
I love the zombie plan and I’m in, sounds reasonable to me.
They are so cute. Hopefully I can recreate them for a fun party! It is the perfect place to bunker down!
