Hello lovies! Are you lucky enough to have today off?! It’s a glorious day to celebrate our nation, especially with tomorrow’s weather not looking quite as nice. Enjoy the outdoors, hang with friends and wear as much red, white and blue as possible!

p.s. – and if you like fireworks, check to see if your city is on this best place to watch fireworks list.
p.p.s – also the sales are out of control this weekend, if tomorrow’s weather doesn’t look to great, hit the mall!

4th of July Food


Seriously though, what is this weather?? We’re very much hoping that New England is just getting this rain out of it’s system before the weekend, because we want sunshine! We have activities on the brain, and rain just doesn’t go along with any of them. One thing, however, that we know that our weekends will certainly be full of is wonderful food. We’ve got the whole shebang here to inspire your kickoff to summer— apps, dogs, and dessert — woot!
