Boom boom boom!

I had a nice Fourth of July with my family. After church we had lunch at Red Lobster instead of having a cookout. We went to Belk after lunch to shop, and I found some great new tops. Then at home, we had our usual Fourth of July dessert, Red, White, and Blue. Later, Dad and I went to see the fireworks. It was at a distance, but still a good show!

Some fireworks:

I didn’t do a lot of decorating, but I did a small doll display. McKenna and Briony dressed up in red, white, and blue, with pinwheels and "firecrackers".

I'm glad I had a good day. I've been feeling somewhat depressed this past week. No reason.

Oh, there's other news. Sam got a new job and is moving to New York! This means our Thanksgiving plans will change a bit. Obviously Katie and I are still going to Disney World, but probably won't stop in Charleston.

One early birthday present!

I bought myself the 18 inch Hairdorables Noah, and she came today!

So darn cute. I'm also going to order the American Girl doll I've wanted for a while- Truly Me 89, plus one outfit.
I have a big rewards discount, plus there's a special this week that will give me many points towards my next reward!

An update on the finch chicks- they're getting bigger and I think they'll be flying away soon. They really look like finches now!

Katie is going to Charleston next week to help Sam get ready for his move to New York. I think he's going to live in Brooklyn. His girlfriend is looking for a job there so she can go with him. She's a teacher, so I'm sure she'll find one soon. Katie will be gone for an entire week. I told her she doesn't have to pay me this time, but she's insisting on giving me at least half. But I get to spend a whole week with Giada!
