I hope everyone is having a great day! We are getting ready for the fireworks to start here now. We are lucky enough to live in a neighborhood where we can watch the show right from our yard :)
Today was a good day. It started with another round of treasure hunting with my friend from work this morning. Th Goodwill stores had 50% off today so we made the rounds bright and early to see what kind of bargains we could get.
I guess I was feeling Patriotic today so most things I picked up were for the holiday. The backdrop which I thought was a table cloth turned out to be a shower curtain. Fine with me. I can use it for decoration, as a shower curtain, or even a table cloth as I originally intended. It was new not used, and who would know?
I picked up the basket and the dish towels at the dollar store, the eagle came from a box of my mother's stuff that I went through at home this afternoon. It's a nice addition to my 4th of July decorations.
The rest were the treasures I found at Goodwill today including the backdrop - total spent at Goodwill - $2. No bad!
It was so hot here today! As soon as I got home it was straight to the pool and then ready to get the grill fired up early. I had planned to do a nice tablescape and dinner today, but with teens in the house my tablescape ended up being a table escape. After our afternoon in the pool they suddenly developed other plans for the evening.
I'm grabbing a cold one now and and heading out to watch to the fireworks, I just heard the first booms and bangs! I have to work tomorrow so I will catch you on the weekend. Happy 4th once again - cheers!
