Friday Favorites

Today I looked at the calendar.  I looked at the calender, looked again, and then asked myself … is it really the end of June?   Then I realized that this Friday Favorites post is the last one before the 4th of July!  It only seems appropriate to dedicate this week’s Friday Favorites to Independence Day.  Check out some of my favorite Red, White, & Blue things in this week’s Friday Favorites!

Favorite 4th of July Dessert: Cute, simple, and perfect for the 4th of July!

Favorite Dress:  Great dress for the 4th!  It’s more subtle than wearing a flag or looking like Waldo 🙂

Favorite Breakfast: Berry Cream Cheese Pastries are perfect for the holiday!

Favorite DIY Decoration: Use red kidney beans, northern beans, and black beans to create this patriotic decor!  How clever is this?!

Favorite Cupcake: I love finding recipes for individual portion desserts and these cupcakes in jars are lovely!

Favorite Decorating Ideas: This link has a bunch of great pictures that make decorating for the Fourth look easy and affordable.

Favorite Outfit: This is my style.  I, like Liz Lemon, enjoy sensible shoes and a good cardigan 🙂

Favorite Munchie:  I love popcorn and this jazzed up version is perfect for the 4th!

Favorite Nails:  So festive and it seems fairly easy to do!

Favorite Patriotic Treat:  Homemade marshmallows with Pop Rocks coating…like a firework in your mouth!  I don’t think I’ve had Pop Rocks in ages!

Favorite Shoes:  I love TOMS 🙂

Favorite Fudge:  My weakness is fudge.


Favorite Wreath:  How neat is this?!  Might have to make this for next year…

Favorite Outdoor Lighting: Here’s an easy craft project!  I’ll do any craft project that involves mason jars….

Favorite Cake:   I will eat this whole cake as a sign of my patriotism.  Go ‘Merica 🙂

Favorite Fireworks: This picture makes me miss living in DC.  What’s your favorite kind of firework?  My favorite is the kind that look like chandeliers!

Favorite Funny:   I LOVE Parks & Rec–Aziz Ansari is hilarious!  Hope you all get to treat yo selves this weekend 🙂

Tonight we are going to The Avett Brothers’ concert at Red Rocks and I’m super excited!  Hope you all enjoy the last Friday of June!!
