Notice I did not say trade-UP. After spending countless days hunting down the most perfect stars and stripes bikini, it's become clear I should have been spending my time looking for stars and stripes galoshes.
So while there will be no fireworks in our neck of the woods this holiday, I am sincerely hoping to get invited to someone's house
that has sparklers that is crafty enough to whip up yummy Americana themed desserts.
To con someone into wearing ridiculous red, white and blue outfits with me
I will totally be wearing my bikini underneath.
and hunting down a Dairy Queen in this town of salads for a hot dog...as hot dogs are essential on the 4th.
And as a very essential side note....Dear Yahoo....your recommendation of "laying blankets out on the den floor in front of the television and 'oohing' and 'ahhhing' over televised fireworks" in your "How to Save a Rainy July 4th article is why Google is the reigning search engine...Also, I think Mike and Carol Brady were the last people in America to have a "den." Love, Ashley
But most importantly celebrating the greatest country in the whole world and the countless sacrifices that so many have made to make it so great
Ever grateful for our freedom
