Fourth of July Shenanigans

Did you guys have an awesome Fourth of July Weekend?

I’m not gonna lie, I had a ton of fun. It’s a holiday that’s right up there with Thanksgiving and Christmas for me. Besides the fact that it’s a holiday that heavily relies on food and family, it holds a really special place in my heart.


I met my best friend and husband 10 years ago at a Fourth of July BBQ held at a mutual friend of ours. It was a huge party and yet we managed to play a few rounds of spades and trash talk the entire time. Though we wouldn’t go out on our first date until a month later, I’m always reminded of that day when the holiday comes around. Now, we make sure we do it up when the Fourth rolls around.


We kicked off the weekend at another huge BBQ thrown by friends with tons of food, music, and some very heated Domino games. When the sun went down, the fireworks came out – all $1,000 worth. My husband and his gang of friends say it’s for the kids, but I’m sure they  had more fun setting off those things than anyone else!

Saturday was a girl’s day at the beach. My daughter and I met up with my mom and headed out to Oleta Park in North Miami. Armed with fried chicken, tuna salad, and plenty of iced tea I was ready to chill on out. My daughter, however, was not! When this water baby wasn’t swimming, she was collecting rocks, or shoveling sand. Needless to say she slept very well that night.

Sunday was my chill day, getting my house and my head ready for the week.

How was your weekend?
