Independence Day Inspiration

I am beyond excited for the upcoming long weekend.  The bf and I are going on a mini trip and I am so excited to don my red, white & blue (and possibly bring along some patriotic snacks for the car).  I'm excited to play along with Daphne's Semi Wordless Wednesday today and bop on over to new fun blogs as well as my favorites.
