The Tiny Heart: Un-American

7.04.2012

Un-American



 Tank-Old Navy, Maxi dress worn as skirt-purchased in Bahamas (cute option) Necklace-giveaway win from My Cowlick, Clutch-Vintage, Sandals-AE (similar), Sunnies-Ray Ban

First I just want to say thank you for the big amount of support on yesterday's post. I appreciate all the fellow dog owners for sharing your own experiences with crazy neighbors and your funny responses to dealing with them!

Yes, it's the 4th of July and you expected me to be wearing something red, white, and blue. I'm not exactly feeling festive this year since I have to go into work. How un-American is that?

While you guys are enjoying your barbecues, beach/pool time, and fun with friends and family, I'll be working. And when I say working, I mean I'll be on the internet. It's a national holiday for god sakes!

  12. As long as you're out in time for fireworks tonight it won't be that bad. I always opted to work the 4th so I could have an extra floating holiday for an extra vaca day.
