star spangled sunday

i love the fourth of july and i especially enjoy the sunday before the 4th when we sing all the patriotic hymns at church. we sang "america the beautiful" and "the star spangled banner" and i did my best to hit the high notes, those most would agree i shouldn't go for high notes.
ruffle blouse- wal*mart
t shirt- downeast basics
belt- gap
skirt- thrifted(originally from the limited!)
shoes- thrifted

my friend lindsay said it best today, "the united states is the greatest country in the world!" i agree. strike up the lee greenwood classic, "proud it be an american!"
i love my country.
 "Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved home and the war's desolation!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"

-the star spangled banner, francis scott key

I am astounded at the stuff you are able to find at WAlmart! Maybe I need to look harder? Because I never see anything there! But i love the ruffles :)
