Our 4th of July in Pictures...

"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever." -John Adams

We spent our 4th with some friends from school and some friends from home on the lake and then we had a bonfire later that night. It was a ton of fun!

This PLUS

This = EXCELLENT!
It tasted like a koolade. Seriously, I couldn't even taste the alcohol.

I made my momma's recipe for dirt cake, but instead of another layer of Oreo's, I made the flag on top of the cake. It was delicious, if I say so myself!


This was my manicure for the day. I did it myself.

These are my best gal pals in law school. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without them.

This is my outfit for the day. I also had a cute swimsuit on as well. It's a cotton dress from Old Navy. It was so comfortable. I had one of my buddies french braid my hair on top and I thought she did such a cute job!


This is me at the beginning of the day.

This is me fried at the end of the day.

It was an amazing day all around and at the end of the day, I couldn't help but feel super blessed by all the wonderful people in my life. I also felt super proud to be an American as well.

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you take every opportunity to hug the ones you love.

P.S. Sorry for all the pictures of me. I hope I don't look like a narcissist.
