my firework shirt + it's ok thursday

Hello, sweet thangs!
Did you have a booming 4th of July holiday?
I was in a local parade with the cheerleaders I coach. And it was smokin' hot!
Not in an attractive way. I was a sweaty mess.
But I got a tan. Gotta look on the bright side.
But after that, Shawn and I went to his parents' house to celebrate his dad's birthday.
How cool is that to have a birthday on the 4th of July?!
I only had one piece of cake. I was pretty happy with my self control.
We were able to see six different sets of fireworks from their driveway too!
Location really is everything, my friends, especially since my MIL LOVES fireworks!
Except when the neighbor shoots them off right over our heads and the pieces of firework rain down on us.

Anyway, here's what I wore for the festivities.
I just realized this tank looks like the grand finale of a fireworks display.
I wasn't sure about all the red in the shirt with the red shorts, but I just went with it. For America.
That's my new motto: Just go with it.
It helps me make clothing decisions faster.
Shawn appreciates this.

{tank and bracelets: Forever 21. shorts and sandals: Old Navy. watch: ShopMamie}


Who's up for a little "It's OK Thursday" action?
Oh good. Me too.

Its Ok Thursdays


This week, I'm saying "It's OK":

To sing Katy Perry's Firework to my husband while watching fireworks.

To be PUMPED to send my penpal her first theme package!

To bathe my dog in the shower with me.

To dance around like a fool when my husband tells me he's bored.

To just go with it.

To be the bigger person.

To be giddy that my Erin Condren planner ships tomorrow!

To consider taking the two days off after the 4th of July to be one of my best decisions in 2012.

Happy almost Friday, lover faces!
