4th of July Celebrations

Hi Friends! Sorry for the late post today. I had so much fun yesterday and then had to return to work today. Sigh. Nothing in the hopper + mid-week holiday= late post! I couldn't go a day without talking to you though. So here you have a late recap of our yesterday...

We spent the entire day by the pool with our friends and neighbors. We sipped on cocktails and noshed on some delicious BBQ. No calorie counting! Calories consumed on holidays don't count, right? Glorious! It was a great day until some thunder rolled and we were sent scurrying home. But, it was time for round two of the BBQ anyway! :)

I didn't take many pics (sorry!) but here are a few...

I tried some new sangria (thanks for the recommendation, Mama!), which was delish. I'm not a huge fan of super sweet cocktails so I cut this with Perrier. It was perfect!

I also hit the dollar spot at Target (aka my happy place!) and picked up some festiveness for the holiday. I thought this star ice tray was so cute!

And the result...Can you see my star shaped ice cubes? Look hard!

The Husband and I drifted off to sleep with full tummies and the sounds of NYC fireworks on the tv. It was a nice mid-week break for sure. We are headed to the coast this weekend and I am beyond excited. I should have some fun pics to share on Monday for our weekend update.

What did you do for the 4th? I'd love to hear! Cheers to a short week and tomorrow being FRIDAY! :)


  1. Star shaped ice? What a great idea, I haven't even thought of that! Definitely doing that for next 4th of July!

    Now Following :)

  2. Thanks for following...following back! We definitely have a lot in common (even beyond being southern!). I'm also a real coke drinker (glass bottle please) and sushi lover!

    Glad you had a great 4th. :)

  3. How festively patriotic!! I am your newest follower! I think we are going to be friends. I love a good cocktail, a good party & am living just up the street in Charleston, SC! Hope you are having a lovely Friday!

  4. Love that sangria and how fun with star shaped ice! Hope your Friday flies by so you can get yourself to the coast! Can't wait to see your weekend update and all the fun you had!

  5. I think I will be purchasing a bottle of that Sangria and adding some fruit to it this weekend! Have a fun weekend at the coast! Stacie xo


Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!
