Happy Independence Day!

As is tradition, we watch the movie Independence Day at my house before our evening festivities.

My husband is a crop duster and so I honor the unsung hero Russell Casse for saving us from aliens 22 years ago.¬† ūüôā

But seriously, I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!


I love me a man in Uniform!


It’s really no wonder I married one.¬† This fourth of July I give thanks to all those men and women fighting for Independence in countries other than their own.¬† My own husband did two years in Iraq, helping the country to reform.¬† I’m happy to have him home once again.¬† I’d like to say a big thanks to all the military men and women out there.¬† Thank-you for your service.¬†¬† I appreicate it.

I’d also like to recognize some of the men who’ve brought the military to the Big Screen with some style.

Richard Gere in "An Officer and a Gentleman"

An officer and a a Gentleman definately inspired many a military romance of that I have no doubt.

Will Smith in "Independence Day"

How could I not recognize a man in the movie so aptly named?

And of course I have to recognize North Dakota’s very own home grown Josh….Nice.

Josh Duhmel in "Transformers"

Channing Tatum in "Dear John"

Can I just say it’s so nice to have an actor like Tatum who will be around for years to come…Aaahhhh.

Happy Independence Day!
