This is the most partiotic outfit you'll find me in for the 4th of July. I never saw it as a 'big deal' sort of holiday, but that could just be leftover cynicism from my youth when my mom would get super patriotic to the point of ridiculousness. Stephen Colbert would tell her to tone it down a little. It was only because her parents were in the Navy (it's how they met) so she felt a sense of
However, the past 4th of July I celebrated was pretty enjoyable for me, as well as this one. Yeah, you read right. See, in this town, we celebrate it the weekend preceeding with a parade, which arrives at the local park, where a day long festival is held. Local vendors arrive to sell anything they can offer, and at night, it's where the fireworks happen. This took place just yesterday, where I bought these sunglasses and that ear cuff you see. In total I bought three pairs of shades. (For five bucks. I'm serious.) I also bought that cream coloured crystal necklace and three quartz pieces that I plan to make necklaces of. I spent a total of $1.50 on the quartz pieces. DIY makes my life so much affordable and enjoyable.
Kathryn and I spent time with her sister Sarah and her friend Molly for a while, then Kathryn and I went home for a bit (we both worked earlier in the day, and with fireworks not happening for a few hours, we went to go lay down and eat) and got a ride back to the park for fireworks.
We also all got airbrush tattoos.
And because I'm cool like that, I'll bring you a little pre-4th cheer:
Have a happy 4th, you crazy kids. ♥
