Boom Boom Pow

Nothing beats a long holiday weekend! Thursday night BF and I attended his hometown's Independence Day Carnival. Live music, rides, games, fresh squeezed lemonade and homemade ice cream made our evening divine. I spent Friday at the gym, helping my dad paint my bathroom, and put some finishing touches on the rest of the rooms. I also worked on some sewing projects and enjoyed the beautiful Southern sunshine.

Despite a migraine ending my night early, I spent a wonderfully festive Fourth of July at a Sundresses & Seersucker party with Boyfriend, some coworkers, and some friends. Intense rounds of cornhole ensued, and neighbors' fireworks capped the night. I finished my peacock dress in time for the festivities, and I'm thrilled with the result. Speaking of which, don't forget to enter my giveaway by Wednesday!


I just got home from a wonderfully rejuvenating day of church services, and I'm still basking in the joy that being in fellowship with passionate believers provides. God is truly with us.

You actually MADE that dress yourself?!? Wow! You could have a future in that; it's adorable.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to get myself invited to a Sundresses & Seersucker party - may just have to throw one myself!

Thanks for stopping by this morning and leaving your comment. My BIL is a Volunteer and the two of us are always harrassing each other. He's in Iraq right now...I had to take that photo to let him know I was thinking of him...
