Decorations and a little inspiration...


July 4th is one of my absolute favorite holidays.  I wanted to add a little patriotic decor to my living room, but didn't want to go out and get a bunch of stuff to do it.  So, I downloaded this adorable July 4th Subway Art here, and picked up things from around my house to add a little bit of festivity to my living room.  

July is going to be a great month, I've decided.  A little fire sparked inside me these past few days, and I'm going to roll with it.  We watched one of my very favorite movies this weekend, The Lorax.  If that movie doesn't make you want to do some good, I don't know what will.  In the movie, one of the character says, "It's not about what it is, it's about what it can become."  Fantastic, right?  So, I'm taking that quote and using it as inspiration for a few different areas in my life...starting now.  

I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

At first, I thought there were chocolate stars on your shelf and thought "This edible decoration isn't gonna last too long haha". I'm a big fan of July 4th festivities as well. Can't wait!

I love the decor! It looks so cute!! And I love The Lorax. That's my favorite part besides all the dancing and singing. My kids love to sing, "How Bad Can I Be?" Do you think they could possibly be tormenting me with the words in that song?! lol They have sneaky little faces when they sing it!! This month IS going to be GREAT!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
