American Festivities

We had a great Independence Day?  How 'bout the rest of you?

  This was the first time I've had any real Fourth of July festivities in which to participate in 4 to 5 years!  It was fun going to wally world with the future hubby to buy fruit, dessert and steak, of course.  I'm so glad that even though I had to work both July 4th and July 5th that I was able to enjoy the holiday!

  If you didn't read about it in my last post, I was destined to spend my next Fourth of July alone, until Tyler intervened and saved the day! (He's my hero!)  He came as soon as I got off work at 8 this morning, and we spend the day together until the moment I left home to come back to work tonight.  He's a sweetie, I'm so glad he took the time to celebrate the holiday with me on his day off, even though I wasn't necessarily off.

  We bought some good ole fruits that are typical of this festivity...grapes, blueberries, strawberries and bananas...and of course made a flag cake.

Here is Tyler with our flag cake!

We (excuse me, *I*) had to cut the cake this way because SOMEONE decided to lick the cake!  Shame on him!

The boy with his haircut that Miss Perfect..err..I, gave him.  ;)  I'd say I'm getting a little better?  :/  

We went to see fireworks at the Pauls Valley show tonight.  Here's a picture from it, nice show!

Hope all the rest of you had a wonderful Fourth of July!


  1. Loved your flag cake. Glad you got to celebrate. Thanks for stopping by Eliot's Eats.

    1. Of course, Debra! I enjoyed reading your recipe, I'll remember it next time I'm hungry for BBQ. Thank you for stopping by as well!
