The 4th of July is fast approaching and that means it is time for grilling out, going to the lake, and shooting off fireworks. I know everyone celebrates our Independence Day differently but most of us will still have on some red, white, or blue no matter what we do. I live in a small town so the biggest thing that happens around here is the fireworks that are set off in town.Joe and I have gotten to the age where we don’t go watch the fireworks anymore. I think that is called “fuddy-duddies” but we used to go when the kids were younger. We also used to set off fireworks here at the house, just the normal firecrackers, sparklers, roman candles, and the occasional big bangers. One year we had a German Shepard that loved fireworks. Most dogs HATE fireworks, my Yorkie shakes and tries to hide, but this Shepard would try to catch them so we had to be really careful. On that 4th we were setting off roman candles and Joe had them set up in a bottle so they would shoot up in the air. I think he was trying to teach the kids that holding a firework in your hands was dangerous. Anyway, the Shepard ran up and grabbed the roman candle out of the bottle. He had it in his mouth like a stick that you had thrown for him to fetch and fetch is what he wanted to do. He came running at us with the candle in his mouth and it was shooting the fireballs out one end. We all started running trying to stay away from him and he was running toward us wanting to play. It is funny now but you should have seen us run then. I like to look festive for all holidays but at the same time, I don’t really want to look clownish. Wearing head to toe shamrocks, snowmen, hearts, or a flag is overkill. So, I choose to wear the colors but just not all the commercialism items. Today’s outfit could be worn at any time during the year, not just for Memorial Day or the 4th of July. I bought this top at least a year ago but I am sure most of you have a red top. This one has an embroidered design on it and that happens to be a big trend this year. Woohoo, I was ahead of the trend. Lol! This shirt is by Lucky Brand. My daughter used to shop that store all the time because they offered XL inseams in their jeans. She has to have a 36″ inseam. 😳
Plunder usually comes out with “specials” for each holiday and I am wearing the 4th of July jewellery today. EXCEPT for the earrings, instead, I have on the Navy Rhombus Earrings. The Independence navy cuff bracelet has bright red stitching and it is adjustable. On the right hand, I have on a silver chain bracelet with a red star and a navy tassel. It is called the Liberty Bell Bracelet. The other bracelet that you can’t see has already sold out. It has the Plunder anthem inscribed on it, “Beautiful girl you can do hard things.”You can get a better look at the two bracelets in this photo plus you can see the rest of the America necklace. If you look hard you can see that the round charm with the star and tassel dangle has a lobster claw. You can unhook the pendant from the necklace and wear the necklace alone or with a different pendant. If you haven’t already noticed, Plunder has changed how you shop in a party. Now when you go to my website, plunderdesign.com/taniastephens it will ask you what party you are shopping in. That is a great help!!! No more missed orders not going to my party! My navy crop pants are from Talbots. I love these pants because they have just enough stretch. They fit nicely and are not tight fitting. I will wear these cropped pants over and over this summer. They are also pull-on so these pants have it all. Lol!
The t-strap navy sandals are by Tommy Hilfiger. I need to go out in the building and see if have some more summer shoes that I stored for the winter. It just seems like I should have more shoes. Haha! These will work for almost anything this summer. You can see that I need to put some shoe polish on the soles, they are looking a little ragged. I am not very gentle with my shoes but how do you keep gravels from scratching up the soles????
I told you gurls that I am going to visit my baby girl in Alaska. I was talking to her today and she wants me to hold a BBL for her while I am there. A BBL stands for Big Business Launch. She signed up for Rodan and Fields last October but really hasn’t told many people about it. It appears that the people she knows in Alaska have never heard of R+F so she wants “me” to hold an event for her to introduce the products. Oh, My Goodness!!! I barely know what I am doing much less tell other people. Lol! Here is what I would love for you to do for me. What would you want to know if you were going to that type event? What kind of questions would you ask? If you ask the questions for me now then I will be prepared with the answers then. I’ll do a drawing for 2 mini facials for those of you who help me out. 😘
Do you know what my number one referrer page is? It is Pinterest! I truly appreciate every time you “pin” a picture. Heck, pin ALL the pictures if you want. Lol! Also, if you would like to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I would appreciate that. It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just want to spread the entertaining sayings I have. Lol! The comment section is at the end of the post, so keep scrolling. I look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.
