Happy 4th...

Great day for the U.S.A.! Independance day... When I was younger I would get the 4th confused with New Years! lol I don't know why. I thought New Years was on the 4th and vice versa. But now I got it all straightened out!

Well, in Texas, south Texas that is, we love to buy & pop our own fireworks. We call them "quetes!" And there are firework stands at almost every corner. They are illegal to pop within city limits, but many families do it anyways. We are out of the city, so we usually buy about $40 worth and enjoy the evening, or we'll go to grandmas house for a cook-out. When I was younger I also associated the holidays with someone getting hurt or fighting, lol. It was so much fun when I look back now. We had people fall off the roof, burn a finger (of course), break an arm, fall of a chair and so much fun with water-balloons! LOL

However you celebrate it, I hope you make some good memories and just relax and don't rush the day! Take it all in & keep America clean too, please!

In celebration, head on over to my Bamboopink Fan Page and check out my 24-hr auction & giveaway HERE! Email me if you want me to add an item for auction or something to giveaway if you're int he giving spirit!
