My friends joke that I will use any excuse to have a celebration. I love celebrating everything…from the small, insignificant events in life to patriotic holidays! There is nothing I love more than red, white, blue, and stripes (which is evident from my wardrobe and overabundance of striped shirts…my last count was around 20!)
I decided to host a 4th of July party this year and my wonderful mom sent me a huge box of patriotic items! She included plates, napkins, flags, wall hangings, star necklaces, bracelets, and an assortment of other USA items. I’m not ashamed to admit that I wore every single clothing item she sent me!
It was great to get my friends together to celebrate this holiday. About half of us were American and the other half hailed from Canada, other European countries, Asia, and of course, the token Brit. Because the 4th of July wouldn’t be complete if there wasn’t a Brit there to make fun of throughout the day. He said that it only took me a minute and 13 seconds to make my first “the USA beat British” joke. haha!
It was potluck style and we had so much yummy food! Apple pie, cake, BBQ chicken, hot dogs, watermelon, fruit salad, chips, etc. I might have slightly overestimated how much everyone could eat because I bought 48 hot dogs for about 15 people!
Thanks to all my wonderful friends who showed up to celebrate this holiday with me! :)
I hope wherever you are in the world, you had a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
