I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy

3 Jul

they call it a blog

 

A Yankee Doodle, do or die…

I love the 4th of July, and plan on starting my festivities early, so posting Friday’s blog early and will just share a general pleasantry, post a few cute 4th of July outfits, some BBQ ideas, and share one of my all-time favorite songs, from one of my all-time favorite bands…Earth, Wind, and Fire, whom I am lucky enough to see this evening with one of my besties, Colleen… Last time we went to see EWF, we had 7th row Pavillion seats, and this woman in our row, was PAINTING HER FINGERNAILS, during the concert…and in Orange, no less.  As I said then, and say now, at least it was Bears orange!  Go Bears!!  And yes, the picture is blurry, and not because I was overserved.  #imnotaphotog

    God bless America and God bless your blog! I am so inspired and am going to tell everyone I am celebrating the red, white and brew for the weekend! Definitely wearing my white jeans and red blouse tomorrow and if asked where’s my blue…I will either say look in my eyes or hold up my miller lite and say right here baby! Enjoy EWF and all your fun people.
