We are back from a fun family trip and I’m trying to re-group around here. Work, laundry, groceries.. time to catch up! I’m a little behind on life in general these days and can’t believe that July 4th is right around the corner. Some years I have patriotic decor up in early May and other years (like this one) I’ve barely done a thing by the end of June! I’m giving myself a pass with everything we have going on right now and decided to just focus on a couple of main spots I knew my kids would notice.
So the hallway is decked with past 4th of July pics. :) I’m hoping to get a few pics from last year developed to add but haven’t had time yet! I also ordered these beautiful red faux geraniums and will show you how I’m using them soon. They are so realistic! They just arrived today and I’m impressed.
If like me you are JUST now starting to think about the 4th here is a fun recipe to try! This golden oreo layered pudding dessert is so festive and delicious! Always a crowd pleaser. You can find the recipe in this post.
Also my sister always makes my favorite feta and tomato dip! I know I’ve shared it lots before, but it’s so good it’s worth a reminder. :) Recipe is in this post.
See.. we can still pull this holiday off! Plenty of time!
Kind of. Sort of. :)
I was looking around at a few options of what to wear this year and found so many cute red tops! If red isn’t your thing they all come in other colors too. Cute for the 4th or just to wear for the rest of summer!
*me & my bro in law – the master chef :)
Another fun option is a summer dress like the denim dress I wore on the 4th last year. Tie a red bandana around your head or add some red earrings and you’re set! Here are some cute dresses I rounded up..
I love all of these fun options too! Ad has #5 and I have #4 – I would recommend them both!
I wore #4 to El’s graduation. It’s called a mini dress but for shorties like me it hits just above the knee – nothing mini about it. Ha.
And last but certainly not least here are some fun options for kids!
They usually bring the party to the party.
And if they don’t, Uncle Austin will. ;)
Ahhh the 4th. Bring on the family! Bring on the food! And bring on the sunscreen!
Just want to make sure we don’t get burned like last year.
