I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July full of red/white/blue apparel, yummy food, and fireworks!
Kyle and I hosted a little BBQ at our house with two of our, best couple friends.
This is what happens when you let your husband create the invite on Facebook...
"Four score and seven years ago our Fore Fathers set forth a new nation where Americans could get drunk and shoot off fireworks while dressed like true Patriots in their American Flag bikinis and cut off denim shorts. Laura and I will be grilling burgers and hotdogs as well as supplying corn-on-the-cob and the most patriotic dessert since Betsy Ross jumped out of the cake at George Washington's Bachelor Party with nothing but American Flag booby tassels on! If you all could bring chips or salad or an appetizer that would be great. Also, don't forget to dress as American as Sarah Palin on her Russia Watch missions!"
I almost died when I saw this. I have to give him points for creativity ;)
Per usual when the six of us gather, we had a wonderful time, laughing our Patriotic booties off! We feasted on burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, fruit salad, and "free-to-decorate-your-own" sugar cookies...all red, white, and blue toppings, of course!
Kyle and I had been saving some of our "Bertie Botts Every Flavour Bean" from Harry Potter World to share with them! We made everyone blindly choose, which didn't end up working out because everyone chose good ones. So, we forced everyone to try at least one of the gross flavours...I know, we're super kind hosts!
We played games, watched the fireworks on TV (we were worried the weather wouldn't hold up if we actually went downtown), and listened to our favorite 90's pop on Pandora. Nights like last are just the best!
