all American sweets
Happy 4th of July eve, my friends!! I've been MIA these past couple of days because our computer is having issues, again! Second time in a matter of weeks... sheesh! And to make matters worse (because who likes spending money on repairing a computer?) it will be out of commission for like a week and a half, UGH! Luckily we are visiting family for a few days and I can use their computers in the mean time!
Anyway, we are huge 4th of July lovers over here and I can't wait to celebrate with Mia! Each year gets better and better with her and I'm counting on this year being the most exciting for her yet :) It's also no secret that I love to stuff my face and a holiday is the best excuse to indulge! I've seen some simple, adorably festive ideas on Pinterest and wanted to share my favorites here. I definitely won't be making any due to the fact that I'm pregnant and visiting family... and just plain lazy ;) But if I were to make something... fruit is first on my list! So refreshing, so simple, so delish! This watermelon, these fruit kabobs and these strawberries, yum! This fruit parfait would be just as refreshing and so patriotic! Try and tell me there's nothing more satisfying than popsicles in the summer? These would be perfect for the 4th! And because I do like a good treat these oreo pops are SO easy and SO cute and I'm a total sucker for chocolate dipped pretzels!!
I hope you all have the happiest of celebrations tomorrow and stay safe! Eat lots of good food ;)
