Odds and Ends – Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day, US friends! The 4th of July is probably my second most favorite holiday (right behind Christmas). I love my country! 

Our day will be filled with work. But we’ll be celebrating the 4th on the 6th. With the exception of seeing fireworks tonight. How about you?

We’re celebrating by prepping for a BBQ this weekend.

I had just cleaned for the summer home tour but it didn’t last. How does it happen so quickly?

At least he’s in charge of the food!

His menu includes:

If you’re still looking for some great patriotic DIY ideas, check out the DIY Show Off Patriotic DIY Pinterest board. I think my favorite this minute is Beckie’s Pledge of Allegiance subway art.

Oh, there’s still time to link up to this week’s DIY party to share your creativity:

I’ve updated my house number flower pots so guests can easily spot our driveway…

I have never had so many planters as I do this year. More planter ideas: chandelier flower planter, pallet herb garden and tire flower planter.

And a Happy 3rd Birthday to our ragdoll girl, Lalka, who was born on the 4th of July in the USA. Don’t let that sweet innocent face fool you. She definitely lived every minute of her terrible two’s to the fullest by climbing on shelves, tearing through the house, finding her favorite crinkly ball only at nights right under the bed, bullying her new sister-dog Rosie by stealthily sneaking up behind her or popping out from dark rooms.

Have a happy fourth of July, friends!
