It’s Friday! If you’re reading this, then you, like me, survived 4th of July festivities!
I decided to keep things really simple this year. I worked all day at the helpline and then Dago and I headed to my parents’ house for bbq and red, white, and blue cake. I’ve always loved hanging out with my parents and spending time at home, but especially now that they have a puppy! I am so happy that Dago gets along so well with my parents and my brother (and the pup, of course). He and my dad have the same punny sense of humor and he and my brother are both Internet nerds. While they’re all sharing man-giggles, I can catch up with my mom, who recently got the cutest pixie cut. My parents are so much cooler than me, I swear.
When it came to getting dressed for the holiday, I knew that I wanted to be comfortable, first and foremost. Especially on holidays where I have to work, which is usually, I don’t want to wear anything that’s too fussy. I decided what I was going to wear last minute, but I’m really happy with the subtle red, white, and blue of the outfit. I considered lots of stars & stripes, pencil skirts, and fancy shoes, but I felt so free and pleased in this outfit all day, from waking up too early to go to work until walking the dog around the block with my dad as the sun started going down.
How did you spend your 4th? What did you end up wearing?
