Fourth Of July Recap

07/05/2017 14 Comments

It’s no secret to those who know me well that Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. I love to celebrate it in a big way with family, friends, food, and fun. I’m linking up with Weekending,  What’s Happening Wednesday , and What’s New with You to recap my holiday weekend with photos!

My float obsession has hit a new high haha

No place we’d rather be than at the lake!

I wish I took more pictures of the decorations.

This cherry pie was soooooo delicious from trader joes!

My new favorite drink! It’s a twist on a margarita! Stay tuned for my new recipe on Friday Favorites.

Best $20 I spent!!

My cousin’s adorable gf!

I love making this every year now. Thanks mixandmatchmama for the recipe 🙂

We aren’t shy about selfies and being super cheesy in this family 🙂

Fireworks anywhere make me happy, but there’s something special about watching them over the lake!

Love my girl cousins!

My aunt at @SprakerPhotography took some amazing photos as well this weekend that I wanted to share:

I use this saying all the time and when I saw them at Target last week in purple, I knew they had to be mine haha.

 

Cheers, to another beautiful fourth!

 

See you back here on Friday 🙂

    What an AWESOME weekend! OMG I totally need that bowling slip and slide set for my next summer party. Is that recipe you made Shay’s red, white, and blue cheesecake? It looks so good!

    oh wow, you really know how to celebrate the 4th of july! that’s awesome. looks like a fantastic time. i’m a little ashamed to admit i spent most of the day sleeping – jet lag! if i did do anything though, it wouldn’t have been that epic. speaking of epic – that bowling slip and slide is fabulous. need it!
