friday finds: july 4th edition


Enjoy the long weekend!  We're heading up to the lake house today and then coming back to Kansas City on Monday to celebrate the 4th at Dan's cousin Amy's house.  The 4th is a huuuuuge deal in Dan's family and he has been relatively depressed for the past two summers when he couldn't go home for the 4th, so I'm excited to see what it's all about.

Some easy DIY 4th of July decorations from Better Homes and Gardens. My favorite is the 6th idea.

Glorious Treats has some amazing ideas for 4th of July desserts here and here.

I think my friend, Sarah, is making these Martha Stewart Cookies.  I can't wait to see how they turn out!

What are your thoughts on red, white and blue outfits for the 4th?  I bought this dress last year, but with a green skirt and actually wore it on the 4th.  

A great round-up of red striped clothing to accessorize your patriotic 4th outfit!  I really wish I had those espadrilles.

Great ideas for how to decorate your 4th of July party.

The perfect healthy, patriotic breakfast....just add strawberries!

How are you celebrating this weekend?
