Daisy & I wish everyone a Happy 4th of July!

We had thunder & rain this morning. Forecast for our area of Central TX was for rain midnight last night but that did not happen. 

Hubby, daughter & I went to la Madeleine for breakfast this morn and they were giving out Liberty tarts free. 

Came home and after lightning stopped I walked Daisy. Since I did not go to the parade I figured I would dress Daisy up for her walk around the park. The red/white/blue playground made for a nice photo opp.

Hubby cooked beef brisket & corn on the cob on the grill outside.



  1. Hi Melissa! Thank you for your sweet comment on my BBQ (Cuttlebug Mania). Feel free to CASE it! I didn't actually use brads, although I do have those as well. I used hot fix Josy Rose nail heads. Not sure if you can get them in the USA and you need to hot wand electric tool of course but I adore them and use them loads! Daisy is adorable!! :)
