In the midst of all of the excitement with Justin Bieber, I ALMOST forgot that the 4th of July is almost here! The 4th of July is my absolute favorite holiday. It is my Christmas...actually it is better than Christmas! Reason being, it is a holiday, so no work. Plus, I always spend it with friends and family, minus the pressure of having to find the perfect gift. It is in the middle of summer, so it always revolves around my favorite summer activity- cookouts. Plus it is expected to consume at least one beverage in honor of Lady Liberty- then you get to top it all of with fireworks! I couldn't ask for more!!! I just love the reminder of how awesome America is!
Anyways, I have worn the same outfit to ring in the holiday the last 3 years. I feel the need to be patriotic, so I wear a red sleeveless shirt and a stars and stripes scarf in my hair. Last year I had moved a few weeks prior to the 4th so I somehow lost the scarf (sad, I know!). I had always hoped no one would notice, or just be like, yep she is such a patriot, but lo and behold the Diesels brother in law called me out! Last year he reminded me that the was the third year in a row I had worn it, and he didn't even know me the first year! I wanted to continue with tradition, but I had purchased a blue tank top for the Brewer game I went to last week. I had an epiphany the other day, blue is just as patriotic, so this tank top will now be in the 4th of July rotation. Now if only I could find that damn head scarf!!!

No this is not from 4th of July, but I would like to introduce you to the Diesel's brother in law Matt- you know, the guy who called me out on my fashion faux paus :)
