Red, White & Blue Weekend

We had an epic first Nashville 4th of July.  :)  My sister Ashley, and her fiancĂ© Carl came down for a visit, and we definitely dressed for the occasion!  The more you get into it, the more fun it is!  Take a peak.  Special thanks to our weekend visitors (Nick too) who made our 4th a blast!  And though we had a great time with events and activities, we still missed our fellow Wisconsinites!  Cheers!

White Hot American Summer

I have been loving white on white looks since spring.  All white ensembles really make your red, white, and blue accessories pop!  Lately though, I have been searching for a sheer white cut-out shirt like the one featured in this post.  The one below is from Express's 70% off sale last week.  I feel like I'm getting warmer, but still not exactly what I am looking for.  Thought I had it spot on with one I ordered from ASOS, but then it came in size petite and I could hardly fit it over my head.  All white ensembles really make your red, white, and blue accessories pop!  I am also obsessing over this nail polish right now.  OPI's Gwen Stefani Collection, Push and Shove looks like your nails have been dipped in pure silver.  I am totally obsessed!  It was gifted to me by my friend Jen, but I think I might have to buy some more because I have never found a silver with this kind of mirrored chrome finish before.  Also super excited that my sister and her fiancĂ© are coming to visit for Forth of July, here we come Hot Chicken Festival!!!

Life Lately

Lots of events going on in Nashville this past month, and lots of visitors staying with us!  I've been a busy little bee.  Let's get caught up a bit shall we?  I've recently created an instagram account for Patti Cake, so feel free to check in there!  If you are an avid instagrammer and blogger let me know so I can follow your adventures as well!  ;)  Alright, the crazy busy weeks started right around here:

Pepsi Summer Bash right in our very own Centennial Park!

Crawfish Boil at the Cannery Ballroom #Mudbug Fest


Getting some airbrush tattoos at Nashville Pride Fest

Yep, I got a face tat.

Nashville Sounds Games or as I like to call them, the Baby Brewers

V.I.P. Concert for Love and Theft

Put up a new shelf! (sometimes it's the little things)
