Our 4th!

The 4th of July will always hold a special place in my heart because it’s the day Sean and I started dating in 2004…I know I’m OLD ;)! Plus it’s my birthday week and everyone who knows me knows I don’t just celebrate my birthday, it’s a whole week celebration! πŸ™‚ The ONE thing that didn’t happen on our wedding day that I wanted was fireworks lit off over the river after we said our I do’s (I know if that’s all that was missing…perfect day right?!) Well anywho, imagine my excitement when the one..and only..excitement that happens in this town is over the week of the 4th! Yay!! So Harper and I did our nails in some awesome patriotic Jamberry wraps and headed off to the parade the weekend before the 4th! It was Harper’s first parade and she LOVED it!

I can’t get enough of these little toes with Jams on them!!


I don’t know what this face is but I swear she was having fun!



She even waved her flag like a pro! πŸ™‚


I of course had to make a festive new wreath for the door after getting in the spirit after the parade and I just LOVE how it turned out!


So after all of this excitement over the weekend we celebrated my birthday Monday! It was very low key and just perfect with my two faves complete with champagne, purple daisies, lemon meringue in mason jars and pizza!


On Wednesday grandma Jane came to stay with us for a few days! It was so nice having her here! We took her to the lake on a little hike around it, showed her some of our favorite places to eat, and just enjoyed our little entertainer Harper while relaxing!

On the 4th she watched Harp for awhile so Sean and I could have a little date! It was GREAT! After dinner we came home and lit off some little fireworks and sparklers of course…Harper’s face explains what she thought of this stick with fire shooting out of it haha!Β image_2


Most of the time was spent chasing Harper as she ran to the neighbors to get into stuff on their patio however..as usual πŸ˜‰



I was excited to finally get a few pics of the three of us since that RARELY happens and we ALL know how much I love pictures! Here are a few of my faves ❀


I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday!
