Living the Americone Dream

alternative text

Happy belated 4th of July to all the Americans (and non-Americans too, I hope you enjoyed the boisterous hullabaloo, too!)!! How did you celebrate yours? I usually never know what to do on that day because I don't really have a big family, so there's no big BBQ while singing 4th of July carols around the fire or something. However, I did eat terrible greasy food (a Happy Meal, to be exact), scarf down ice cream and watch fireworks. Pretty patriotic, huh?

(The Thai Jewelry giveaway is going on until July 11, so you can still get your entry in!)

I'm sure we CAN be graceful and whatnot... but our main concern was not to fall into the pool...

What's Lovely for Saturday, July 3, 2010: Having the worst pool photoshoot ever with dear Meeshell after gorging on hot dots and corn (aka good ol' Americana)

I didn't really have the "white" in my red, white and blue-- then I remembered my dog is roughly that color. Hail America!

What's Lovely for today, July 5, 2010: Shopping at the mall when you see things like a large mall cop on a Segway and two men holding hands-- both made me smile in totally different ways

Hehe, I love your second outfit. Go-go-flower-rangers. And the first is so patriotic, plus the ice cream makes it even more patriotic. I love it all. <3

Your Fourth of July outfit is so perfectly patriotic and all-American.

And the ice cream...I want some now.
