Patriotic nails

Having my kids home for summer break has its pro's and cons. I do like having  all this extra time I get  with them and I enjoy that  life slows down a little. Sometimes I just love to stand back and watch them when they are all playing together and getting along so well. It is these moments that make me so happy and remind me how much I love being a mom. I also love that we can make fun plans on the fly because we are not on a strict schedule. However there is also a lot more sibling  fights and I always having a messy house. I haven't gotten a lot of projects done lately so I was excited to do my nails and it got me way excited for the upcoming holiday. One of our favorites!






             I am completely addicted to these nail plates!
