The 4th and Fashion

Yesterday, we celebrated our first 4th of July as a family of 4. The day started off with a "bang" when our AC went out upstairs at about midnight. Julianna woke up around 1:30am and never went back to sleep. Olivia slept as usual but Josh and I took turns with Julianna. I ended up on the couch watching Nick Jr. with her. She finally crashed for a nap around noon and I woke up up around 3pm. She wasn't happy with me this time! We ventured out to the Goodwill. I haven't been thrifting since before Olivia was born so I was very excited. We only stayed for about 15 minutes but I still managed to find 5 items that I loved. I'll show those off in another post. We also got Julianna a bag of Mega Blocks... I'm not sure who loved those more- her or Josh! We picked up a few items from the grocery store and went back home for a little cookout. We grilled ranch turkey burgers and also had potato salad, baked beans, and sweet potato fries. Delicious- and Julianna even ate! We had planned on having strawberry shortcake for dessert but we were all so full. I think that would be good for breakfast! Josh bought a few fireworks to shoot off with the neighbors. We thought Julianna would love them. We were wrong. She was okay with the idea at first but then we gave her a sparkler and she immediately grabbed the "sparkler end" instead of the stick. It happened too fast for us to stop her. A little burn later and she was completely scared and done with fireworks. She screamed and cried for 5 minutes so I took her instead for bathing and consoling. Oh well! We'll try again next year and maybe Olivia can join us instead of snoozing!

Speaking of being thrifty... 4th of July was the perfect chance to wear my blue and white striped shorts. I scored this Banana Republic shorts for $2.00 at the thrift store when I was pregnant. I was excited to pair them with a fun red top for the perfect 4th of July outfit. Thrifty and fashionable! :)
