I seriously love holidays!! Nothing beats dressing up, eating tons of food and spending time with family! Our 4th of July was rather low key since I'm 8 months preggers and it was a rather warm 113°F. So we decided to avoid the parade and started our morning off with some landscaping while Peanut splashed in her little pool.
My mantel leaves something to be desired but I had to show you my banner!
I love it! I followed this tutorial, my blue paint is quite a bit lighter than hers though since it's what I had on hand. I think I like the darker version but still love my final product!
Mom and Dad have wonderful neighbors that bring by yummy and festive treats.
