How Tuesday: How to Prep for the 4th of July

The holiday is approaching...and I know I'm ready for a break!

How to prep for the 4th...

1. Make a plan - whether it's a trip or beers & bbq, get something set.
2. Prepare some grub
- pico de gallo + blue corn tortilla chips=festive snack

- Miller Light, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Bud Light are just a few beers that are festive looking...Pabst being the most patriotic (but not as easy to find)
- Non-alcoholic beverages...red punch, blue punch, etc.
- American foods: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, burgers and dogs
3. Get the extras - Sparklers and Streamers

4. Get ready
- Shades and Sunscreen
- Bug spray for fireworks time
- Simple outfit for all day long (I'll most likely wear stripes because I'm obsessed...) (Maybe you need a festive headband???)

What are your favorite 4th of July traditions?

  1. hello friend,
    ooOoo i can't wait for july 4th!!
    we'll most likely make some hot dogs and/or hamburgers, then s'mores for desert.
    since we live in a neighborhood where fireworks are frowned upon ((and our local park is no longer participating in the festivities)) we will probably put in and movie ((independence day, charade, the philadelphia story or some such cinema wonder)) and relax with some lemonade. (0:
    hope you have a festive day,
    p.s. i adore your red/white/blue striped headband!!!
