Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today’s post is going to be short and sweet since it’s a holiday week. Zack has Tuesday-Thursday off so I’m hoping to get out and spend some quality time with the family. Since Zack is nearing the end of his military contract, he’s not taking any vacation time between now and then so this is as close to a “vacation” as we’re going to get until he gets out!
With the Fourth of July fast approaching (Wednesday!!), I thought I’d share some super fun Fourth of July-themed articles and blog posts I’m loving right now! If you’re in need of some cute outfit ideas, creative snacks for the kiddos or themed meals for a BBQ, then you’re in the right place! I’ve got everything you need for the Fourth of July right here! Just keep on reading!…
