The 4th of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays! For me, it has always meant going to the lake with my family. There is something so wonderful about being on the water, grilling out, and watching fireworks. This year is going to be extra special because one of my best friends will be joining us and I just can’t wait! There are some things that I just couldn’t do without on the 4th and I wanted give y’all my guide to the perfect Independence Day.
- I’m not huge of the patriotic bathing suits or anything like that, but I do believe in a good mani pedi. I found the PERFECT red color for my toes and I always go with an off white on my fingernails for summer.
- Although I don’t love patriotic bathing suits, I realized earlier that I have been wearing red, white, and blue all week. Here are some of my favorites (and they’re all on sale!):
- I mentioned previously that I always spend the 4th at the lake with my family. Our house is in Alabama and Alabama is HOT in July. That being said, we spend a lot of time on the boat or in the water. I absolutely love a good float and Target has all of theirs on sale!
- Lastly, for my family it’s all about the food over the 4th of July weekend. We love to grill, have great cocktails, and celebrate my mom’s birthday with cake! Check back over the weekend as I post recipes we’re using all weekend long!
I hope everyone has a great 4th of July! What are some of your traditions or favorite things about Independence day?
