Happy Fourth of July everybody! It’s a full blown rainy day here in Nashville, but at least we have good food and good company to entertain us. This is my attire for the day, loosely based off the outfit I put together for Monday’s post. The only thing I need to add is a rain jacket… Check back tomorrow for the Friday Five and enjoy the holiday! fourth of july outfit

Well, I’ll be absent from the blog for a few days while I take a little trip down to Louisiana. A family I babysit for asked me to help out with the kids on their vacation.
