Independence Day Blog Tour β—Š Ft. Emmie & Diamond


As Independence Day slowly creeps upon us, the anticipation builds, until we (metaphorically) pop like a firecracker.

I love America, but I love my state as well. We’re popular for spicy foods, the untamed marsh, LSU Football, (GEAUX TIGERS), magnolia trees, pelicans, Alligators, benguets, Mardi Gras, Jambalaya, Crawfish, our crazy accents, jazz music, the weird way things are spelled, and so much more. (Now I’m hungry)

Which leads me to wonder,what do you like about your state?

I had the idea to do an Independence Day Blog Tour to celebrate our amazing country. Don’t get me wrong, I love other countries too! I’d love to live in Australia or Italy or an African country someday! But, I just thought that since most of the bloggers in our community are from the US, it would just be a US thing.

So I emailed Emmie and Diamond to see if they would like to host it with me.

They said yes!

Enough of the behind the scenes, I bet you’re all wondering why on earth you’re reading this post.


You can get involved in the ultimate blog tour. And it’ll be awesome because Emmie and Diamond will be hosting it with me!

So, my friends, welcome, to…


Independence Day Blog Tour


This is an easy, fun, and memorable collaboration you can join in on! There are seven very easy steps to join, and even if you aren’t allowed to share your state you can post about your favorite state.

Here are the seven easy steps to joining this tour, hosted by Diamond, Emmie, and me!

  1. Join by going to this doc and following the instructions.
  2. Re-blog this post.
  3. Make your post, and add all the things you like about your state (Or your favorite state!), fun Fourth of July traditions, facts about the state, favorite historical figures, quotes, and pretty much anything that has to do with America.
  4. Add the above graphic to your post.
  5. Tag your post with, #IndependenceDayBlogTour
  6. Add the list of names from the doc in step 1 at the end of the post.

Thank you so much for reading, and if you have any questions, please, feel free to email me or Diamond! (Because Emmie will be away at Summer Camp from June 27th-July 4, she won’t be able to answer emails!)

I Have 12% of a Plan Aesthetics / Diamond’s Blog Tour

Hey! This Is Mary and today I’m letting Diamond do a guest post on my blog for her super awesome blog tour! I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did!

~ Mary

Hello friends! It’s Diamond, and today I have something very special to share with you guys! Firstly, I recently launched my very own personal blog, I Have 12% of a Plan! If you haven’t checked that out yet, go right ahead! It isn’t much yet, but I have big plans.

Ok, so as you can probably guess, this post is part of the blog tour. I’ve been planning this blog tour for a while now, so I’m pretty pleased to see the product of all my hard work come together. Also, Mary even designed my blog button for me. Didn’t she do a great job?

For today’s post, I have some aesthetics that fit the theme of my blog. I got all these from Pinterest, and I’ll also be linking to the I Have 12% of a Plan board. My blog will be pretty random, so these aesthetics will also be pretty random. I hope you guys enjoy!

Now, here are some of my favorite pins, organized by themes.


For those of you who don’t know, my family has three dogs. The dog that I claim as my own is named Rocket. He’s a Chiweenie (half Chihuahua/half Dachshund) and he’s pretty adorable. Here’s a picture of him:


Now, there aren’t any pictures of him on my board, but there are some really adorable Dachshunds that I love! Here they are(again, I can’t claim credit for these):

Lil' Man


Another one of my many loves, is Marvel. It will be talked about a lot on my blog, so I’ve also included some Marvel pins.

Star Wars

Another thing that I like(though not nearly as much as Marvel XD) is Star Wars. You might see some Star Wars themed posts pop up every now and then.


Oh yeah, here’s another one. I live fairly close to Disney World, so you can expect quite a few posts about Disney World and various Disney movies. (If you can’t tell from the board, Stitch is my favorite)
