Happy Fourth!

Who has awesome plans for tomorrow!? This will be the very first 4th of July I haven't had to work since I was 16!!!! Crazy, right?! Well, we are taking full advantage! We initially decided to surprise Scott's sister Helen and her hubby who live about 4 hours east of us by showing up on their doorstep this evening, but while I schemed on how Scott could nonschalantly see if they were going to be working or not - he gave it away. :( Lame-o! Either way, they are super excited we're going and I cannot wait to be with my little niecey, Raelyn!!

I mean... how friggin cute is this little 6 month old princess!?!

She just melts my heart! So we will be leaving soon after work. Of course my tire pressure sensor comes on TODAY on my way to work, so I have to spend my lunch break gettin' some air and probably getting them rotated/balanced.

I am also working on my VERY first crafting project since I was in I think 8th grade in Home Ec?! Haha, it's nothing major. My best friend Ashley and I spent Sunday evening making these cute 4th of July tanks for the holiday - we let them dry yesteday and today we'll be doing the cutting... here is some pics of our progress and pic of what it will look like!

I will be sure to post the end result of these cute shirts!! We practiced cutting on one of the extra T-Shirts, and they really do come out super cute! Fun project!

Don't forget to enter my 100 Follower Group Giveaway that I posted YESTERDAY that ends at the end of the week! So far over 400 entries, and I am blown away!! I have already met so many new friends! :) Thank y'all for the support!

Have a SAFE and fun 4th weekend! Gas prices are dropping for the Holiday (wahoo!!!)

Hi Amanda, I'm newly following :) Thanks for following me also, I look forward to getting to know you!

Those T-shirts look awesome! I wish I had the materials to put one together quickly for tomorrow but really you can wear them anytime. Can't wait to see your finished product :) Have a great holiday!
