Happy 4th of July!!

As many of you may or may not be aware, tomorrow is the United States’ Independence Day. I’ll be with Boo & his fam, participating in the typical celebrations include barbecuing, being outside, sparklers & fireworks! Ooooh…and swimming!! If I’m able to, I’d like to try my hand at sewing myself a swimsuit tonight, but I doubt I’ll have enough time! 🙁 Well, we will see!

In honour of the celebrations, I wanted to post a picture of one of the NEATEST little accessories EVER:


This is SO. FRIGGIN’. CUTE. My lovely co-worker, owner of Deb’s Silks, made these hair clips for herself & her daughter — I wish she’d made more so I could totally sport one at tomorrow’s festivities!! 🙁 [sobs] Well, I’ll come up with something…

I did make a pretty awesome button, though. Okay, well, I only made the button…the graphic is a cut-out from a magazine that Mrs. Debbie found & gave to me. (She’s awesome like that, always giving me random things to use for projects!)

Here’s my totally rad, patriotic button:


It’s not finished yet, though!! Mrs. Debbie’s hair bows inspired me, so I’ll do something neat to it when I get home tonight.

Oh, drat! I forgot, I planned to bake cookies tonight for tomorrow’s celebration….hmm…guess I’ll make a swimsuit another time, then. Drat. Oh, well. I’ll post pics of my cookies & what I do with the button later tonight or tomorrow for y’all’s viewing pleasure! 😀

Until then, everyone celebrate SAFELY & COURTEOUSLY (no blasting fireworks out of your back yards at 4 a.m.!) Also, make sure to abide by your local laws regarding fireworks. 😉

Peace out! Cheers!!

Memorial Day 2013

I hope that this post finds everyone well, & I hope you’ve all had a pleasant & enjoyable Memorial Weekend. As we spend today with our friends & families, I’d just like to take a moment to say that regardless of your political beliefs, affiliations, or any of those lovely freedoms we’re given in speech, I am very, incredibly grateful to have been given this opportunity in this life to be an American.

Regardless of what your nationality, I’d like to take a moment to remember all fallen heroes — worldwide– who have died in the line of duty.

In the United States we take this day to remember those who have fallen serving & protecting our country & our freedoms, & I’d like to say “thank you” to you all, whether you’re a Veteran, a current Soldier, or now at peace, your courage & bravery will never be forgotten, & your sacrifices never taken for granted.


Happy Memorial Day all, & sweet dreams.
