good day and etsy items

well, so much for going to ft. worth to watch fireworks. we drove all the way out there and couldn't find anywhere to park. so, we came home...AND WATCHED THEM IN OUR BACKYARD!!! doy...to the east (our backyard) is outside city limits, so there were tons!

outside at about 8:20. a few here and there. by 9:15 we were viewing about 10 different fireworks shows happening along the entire span of our backyard. some very far, others very close (our neighbors--they only had a few since they're not supposed to have any being inside the city limits--but they were super good and right over our heads!) it was a gorgeous night. luckily, we don't have any mosquitoes (don't know why but i'm not complaining) so we were able to just sit and relax...and chase owen all over the place. it was much more 'relaxing' after he went to bed. no pics...terrible at taking fireworks pics. did get a vid, but not sure that it came out well.

anyway, wonderful and relaxing day. we did get our flag. went to lowes'. perfect:

and before we went out and about today, i finally took a bit to create some new items for my etsy. here are two of my faves:

Your new flag looks FAB on your new house. Our local fireworks were actually on the 3rd (we were bummed that we missed out!) They were changed due expected weather. It has rained everyday. Well it did not rain on the 4th, so we went to some in a nearby town. YAY! Love your new etsy items. They are very cute! :-)

Too awesome that you could see the fireworks from your backyard!! You'll have to keep that in mind next year. LOL. Love the flag. Ok, no more talk of Texas. I can't wait to see my family (in southeast Texas) in a few weeks.
