Independence Day

The 4th of July was indeed a festive celebration
I decided at 9 o'clock the night before that I was going to sew a skirt to wear the next day. . .
I am NOT crazy- I promise
I stitched all that I could, leaving only the elastic to be placed Monday morning before the parade. 
Still not crazy. .
I rolled into bed at about 1 am
and then slept through my alarm the next morning
I did what I could with my dirty hair and ran to Wal-Mart to find some 2 inch elastic
They don't carry 2 inch elastic of course. 
So with a few minor adjustments I finished the skirt and threw together my Red, White, and Blue get-up
We went to the Hooper parade and then to eat Navajo Tacos in Plain City
They were delicious
We watched the firework show in Hooper and ate the cake pops I made! 
They are officially reserved only for suuper special occasions
only because they are a 2-day project
Liese, Me, Aunt Mel, Conlee, Chandler, and Jord

  1. What on earth are we doing with our lives? I was in hooper for the 4th too! And I stayed up way too late making a skirt. My dear husband said, "I didn't know you needed an outift for the 4th of July." Silly boy. Your's turned out super cute, I'll be posting mine soon.

  2. I think we are kindred sewing spirits. haha! Whenever there is a themed celebration- a cute skirt is a necessity. Even if you decide that it is necessary the night before. I can't wait to see your new post!

  3. why is your hair so cute, even when not done. jelly.

  4. jelly? lol. My hair does not look good, unless grease is the new chic!!
