Happy Independence Day :)

July 04, 2012

Let Freedom Ring!
Story time: When I was in junior high I had an assignment in english class which involved choosing a song, finding all the literary terms, and highlighting/labeling them! We were also supposed to find hidden meaning in the song and explain to the class what our view of the meaning was. Well for whatever reason I chose Independence Day by Martina McBride and to this day this song has a special place in my heart. Mostly because it's such a symbolic and amazing song, but also the fact that after almost 10 years I can still remember an assignment that taught me so much.

So here's the thing it's the fourth of July and I don't own anything patriotic :(
I don't own a red shirt of any kind, and the blue shirts I do have are totally not the right shade.
So as an effort to fix this problem, i'll just pin the patriotic outfits clothing items that I wish I were wearing and hopefully by next year I'll be a bit more prepared. Sounds reasonable right?  The saddest part though is the fact that I'm a Texas gal and our flags colors are Red, White, and Blue! Umm, can you say hello? 

Hope you ladies have a wonderful day :)

  3. Hey don't worry about not owning anything patriotic.. I'm a military wife and don't own anything of the sorts either! I don't really think I could pull off red, white, and blue! Haha... I am in love with the manicure though! I am totally going to do it! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I'm kind of in the same boat. The most patriotic item of clothing I own is one of those Old Navy flag tees from way back when. And I'm actually in the military. (Haha, I'm kinda relieved that I'm not the only one now after seeing Katlyn's comment!) I guess my uniform counts as patriotic, buuuut we get the day off, so I'm totally NOT wearing mine today. (: Cute pics, girl. Happy 4th!
