American Girl Living in America now an American Woman Red, White, and Blue!

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! This month, I’m helping my good blogger pal, XmasDolly and the 4M crew. One of her chicks is out on vacation, so I’m filling her dance shoes as a temporary co-host. I know, I know it’s 4th of July with only a few on the dance floor today. That’s ok. The rest of you get a pass! That being said, when you do get a chance come shake your tail feathers with us!

Let’s kick off this block party with some good ole songs about America!






What mewsic are you listening to lately? I’d love to know what songs are moving you, so please feel free to tell me in comments. ?

While I’m co-hosting Monday’s Music Moves Me, feel free to link your music posts below. You can find the 4M button on XmasDolly’s site to snag and display on your site. Now, get out there and boogie!


to my fellow Americans and God bless the USA!

May freedom and rock n’ roll never die. Party on, my friends! Special salute to my friends across the pond in their recent #Britexit victory!

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! American pride is something we all have for our country and we love to show it on special occasions, but why wait? I think it’s good to show your colors for the red, white, and blue anytime of the year.

Over the years, I have gotten DH several patriotic shirts. He has two favorites ~ a waving flag Polo and a long-sleeve American flag shirt. These are beautiful shirts!

A week ago, he asked if I could get him a navy version of the waving flag and a slightly different version of the LS American flag shirt. I was able to order the Polo as requested. Who-hoo! The smaller sizes are out of stock for the other shirt until September. No worries, I’ll be sure to order at that time and who knows…maybe I’ll want something else then, too. 😀

So, why am I telling you all of this you say? Well… the owner of the company sent me an email thanking me for my recent purchase and asked that I tell my friends about them. So, being the girl next door that I am, I wanted to help spread the word.

The folks at The Flagshirt company have a great site filled with patriotic apparel for the whole family. They have tees, tanks, short-sleeve, long-sleeve, and sweatshirts, but they are more than shirt store. They have board shorts, bikini wear, beach towels, hats, flip-flops, and so much more. Show your American pride anytime, shop….


Shop for your patriotic apparel here!
