Blessings on the 4th!!!

Vic, me and the kids

First time holding a sparkler, I know I'm 35, so it took a little while!!!!!!!!!

The kids loved the sparklers and the neighbors were so kind and generous to share!!!
Terri and Cindy!!!

I won a basket at ULTA!!!!!!!!!! whoo hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello! I hope you all had a great 4th of July! This year we decided not to go the park that we usually go to. Instead we stayed on the block and sure enough the neighbors had a great big show planned. Fireworks went off for at least an hour. The kids got to play with sparklers and heck I got to hold my first sparkler ever. I know it only took 35 years! In any case it was nice to be home and enjoy some fellowship with girlfriends.

I also received a call from ULTA saying I won the first prize basket in their drawing, I couldn't believe it. I have never won anything before. So of course I headed right over there to see what I'd won and wowee!!!!!. Tons of make up and skin care for days to come. I was like a kid in a candy store and sounded like one too!!! Thank you Lord, what a blessing!

You lucky girl. I LOVE Ulta. I used to go there all the time when I was in Texas. Of course, there isn't one here out in the middle of Arkansas. Boo hoo.
