Hey all - hope that everyone in the States had a wonderful Independence Day yesterday!
Now, I'll be the first to admit that I am not the most patriotic person - this was one of the reasons that Girl Scouts wasn't very fun for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm very appreciative of where I live and the privileges that I have because of that. But, patriotism is still not my thing, but I digress.
However, when I found this very odd (and let's be real, awesome) skirt at a thrift store, I knew I had to get it for my family's 4th of July picnic. Come on, it has American flags, British flags, and gold carts. Golf carts. I couldn't have made up this skirt if I tried and I certainly couldn't have passed it up.
It was perfect for a day of grilling, lots of desserts, games with the family, and walks with my cousin.
She actually took these pictures for me and we may or may not have done a little trespassing to get them done. ooo, breaking the law! ;) This was actually just the old train station that was turned into a store - which was closed for the 4th. It was great to spend time with my cousin, who is definitely a wonderful friend; we always have a blast when we are together.
Taking goofing pictures, dancing to Grease, and making nerd references are just are some of our many specialties.
After I left the picnic, I get this text from her saying: "either those are fireworks or this is the Hunger Games and a tribute just died."
Yeah, my family is the best.

Oh. In case you missed my blooper post the other day - here is just a glimpse of some of my crazy faces.
There was a train coming. And it was LOUD.
Have a great weekend everyone!
