4th of July Look and Shennanigans

**May Contain Press Samples**

Today was more of a relax and recuperate day for my family. We were supposed to travel to the east side of PA to camp out and celebrate, but I've been sick so we were stuck in Pittsburgh. I shouldn't say stuck because there are sooo many things to do. Me, I was stuck. I have an infection which has lead to a series of scary questions from my doctor and now further testing. I'm trying not to freak out, but I did already have a similar issue when I was pregnant with my daughter. So, in the meantime, I am going to try to relax and take it one day at a time.

 Squeeeeee GOATS! I want one so bad!!
My love bugs in front of firetruck! Mars does not look impressed. #TypicalMarsFace
Sitting in the police station. No, we were just visiting. No one actually had to go inside. 
Anyway, we celebrated the 4th of July on Sunday instead. The 4th of July represents the independence of the United States through the adoption of the Deceleration of Independence and the freedom on the 13 colonies into what we call the United States. They were finally separate from the British Empire. In present time US, we are celebrating our independence and freedom with parties, great food, fireworks and parades.  

Yesterday, our township had a great big fair complete with fireworks at the end of the night. I was able to make myself walk around and enjoy some good food and great neighbors. I have literally been stuck in my house for 3 days straight and I was going stir crazy. I actually did them twice because the first ones just weren't my style. These are a little more my steeze and they were matte before I top-coated them! I'm still not that happy with them because the lines got drug from the topcoat, but you get the patriotic point!

Mars girl got her nails painted, too to match.
I also did a little makeup design. I wanted to go simple, yet American! lol.
I did a super simple red and blue eye and a red and blue lip. I actually ended up taking off the lip and going for a straight red. I was trying to be too American. Wait... there's no such thing!!

Even though it's been super tough dealing with this health issue, it's been great seeing my kids have fun and smile. I don't get to spend a lot of time with them during the week and they are growing so fast, that I really cherish this time with them.
