We will be spending our 4th @ the lake. We have lots of family come, spend the day on the water, have a cook out and wait for dark so Dean & the kids can awe us with their amazing fireworks show!

Beautiful giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!
I am hoping I don't have to work on the 4th... I work in a grocery store, so of course, we are open. I forgot to request it off since I'm just barely back to work after a 6 month leave of absence. Too late now to request the day off, but it is also my anniversary date! We usually have a BBQ and make homemade ice cream!


Jackie, you must have hit the wrong numbers on the key board. I guess you meant to push 12 not 21. You look awesome! Love all your stuff. Jeri


I can't even think that far ahead and it's not even that FAR ahead! I love your generosity and talent. Such a wonderful giveaway. Guess I better figure out what to do for the 4th. ;)


we will be enjoying family and friends while waiting for the fireworks to begin!


Jackie, you are always so generous!
I'm not sure yet what we will do for Independence Day. Maybe cook some hotdogs and hamburgs on the grill, go see some fireworks, just hang out. Whatever! I'm sure it will be a wonderful day no matter what we do. :)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ALL the stuff you do, and I would be most honored to have this in my collection. Pick me, pick me, just kidding. But I do love your blog and all your creative endeavors. Thanks for a chance to win something awesome, just like you!!


Jackie: your little pillows are darling. I would love to own one. For the past 12 years we have spent the 4th at our lake house. We always have homemade ice cream and decorate with lots of bunting. There is a golf cart parade, with prizes for the best decor. Brenda & I competed against each other several years, then decided to pool our resources (and stop the competition) so we bought a small trailer that we could pull behind one of our carts and we could decorate it to the hilt and it would hold all of the grandkids! My favorite one was Peace Love and IceCream..but I think we just got 3rd place. The kids were so cute in their red white and blue!


Celebrating our freedom & appreciating all those that fight for it! My family will be BBQ'ng & watching the fireworks from our backyard as always.

God Bless the USA!



It's so sad to miss our sweet Daddy's isn't it???

I would love to enter your give away. I'm going out to visit my friend Vickie & see the 4th of July Parade in Huntington Beach, CA. She say's it is one of the biggest in the USA. In fact she bought seats in the bleachers. Can you believe the need? I sure have never seen anything like that. But, if I win I want to take that little treasure to her. And I'll be back in our favorite area... San Luis Obispo. Wish you could join me.

Every year our little town has the best fireworks show at the park just down from our house. We ride our bikes over, layout a quilt, eat corn dogs with lemonade and enjoy the show.


Not sure what we will be doing for the 4th this year, but if we aren't partying or at a fireworks show we always watch the Boston Pops on TV - love the patriotic music and fireworks show at the end.

BTW - Hope you are feeling better.


The 4th has always been one of my favorite holidays. I don't really enjoy the cracking of fireworks but I love to Ooooh and Aaaah at the bursts of color in the sky.
I'll be laying on the golf course at the Carthage Memorial Park. Its so beautiful. Feels like you can reach up and touch each explosion.

Have a safe holiday. Happy B'day.

BTW, some residents at our nursing home made bookmarks for the kids in Moore.

Hi Jackie! :D
My boys will be at camp during Independence Day so Alexis and I will be celebrating with our church. Then when that's over we come home and float in our pool and watch the fireworks they pop on 23rd street. It's so fun and relaxing, we look forward to it every year.
