Happy Fourth of July!

To all who celebrate, a very Happy Fourth of July! I think I’ve mentioned this already but Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays because it is just so summery and American! This day is full of parades, barbecues, fireworks, the pool, good food and spending time with family and friends! It’s like the epitome of summer time!

Here’s what I’m wearing today:

And for the pool, my America bikini that only comes out once or twice a year!

So far today we’ve already been to a Fourth of July parade in town this morning. There were tons of floats and people giving out beads and candy! And I bought some beautiful white hydrangeas for the table:

After getting back, I have started marinating some ribs for dinner. And making some sweet sun tea: a staple for any southern summer!

We are now watching the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, which is actually super amazing and weird! I didn’t even know about it until a few years ago, but it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a bunch of professional eaters competing for how many hot dogs they can eat in 10 minutes. It’s really wild to watch and they treat it like an actual sport with commentators and introductions and everything!


This afternoon we’ll probably hang out by the pool for a little while and have some snacks. And then later tonight we are going to a fireworks show downtown. I’ll probably update pictures from that later, I just wanted to be able to put out this post before it got too late at night!

If you’re celebrating today, what are your plans? Let me know in the comments section below! Thanks for reading!

      1. In fact we don’t celebrate this day ‘riotously’. There aren’t any concerts, sports events etc. Poland is a Catholic country so we go to the church to a mass. In our capital city there is a parade. Lots of people come to watch it. Our President gives a speech and a lot of soldiers march on the square. We pay homage to the people who died during the war. Every shops are closed and a lot of people put Polish flags up on their balconies. It’s very important holiday for Polish people 🙂
