Guys, I love the 4th of July.
I’ll love it even more if I can ever decipher the local laws to see if we’re allowed sparklers. Because sparklers are MY FAVORITE THING EVER.
(Don’t tell me it’s too dry for fireworks here. All it does is rain.)
The 4th of July also means increased security on Fort Hood so I’ve said, “Really? You think I’m gonna bring bombs on post in a doorless Jeep?” three times in the last week.
I mean, I get it. We have to be careful. But a 30 year old (yeah, my birthday happened) mom with 3 dogs in her (doorless, windowless, topless) car shouldn’t set off the terrorist alarm every. single. time.
Yeah, I’m really hoping for some sparklers.
I think we’re going to have a very low key 4th, just us, at home. This past month has been insane – isn’t summer supposed to be stress free? So we’re probably just going to grill and try to catch the Fort Hood fireworks show from our backyard. (If there’s one – I am so out of the loop.)
I am really, really bad at themed food. I think you know this by now. But I can’t resist a red, white, and blue treat. These Mini Fruit Pizzas are just sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting, and fruit on top. But they’re so cute and really delicious!
