Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Happy 4th of July everyone!

We're so excited for this holiday. We're going to be spending it with my family in good ole Texas.


Although, this year it might be different because there's a ban on all fireworks!

I know!

What is the 4th without fireworks?? But, it's for a good reason. Fires have been a real concern this year and they are worried all the fireworks will cause more damage.

I get it!

My kids will have many more 4th-of-July's with fireworks, I'm sure. As long as we get to bbq and hang out with my family. That's my favorite part.

That and maybe the watermelon. Yum.

So, my question this week....

What's your favorite part about the 4th of July?

Also, don't forget.....the canvas pillow giveaway ends July 4! I might extend it...we'll see....
Have a great weekend all!


  1. Thanks for hosting Meg! I think my favorite part of July 4th is the good food and desserts. :)

  2. Enjoy your holiday, Meg! Being with family and friends, of course! But when my kids were little I loved watching them see the fireworks. So much fun.

  3. Thanks for hosting Meg. I hope you have lots of fun ( and watermelon). I love that it's a reason to not feel pressure to have a gourmet grill...just good old hot dogs, burgers etc.

  4. Hi Meg and thank you for hosting this fun party! I'm attending today and now I'm going to go and check out all the party goers!
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. oh my gosh, what is the 4th without the fireworks, you're right! it is just the culmination of celebration...but i can see their reasoning. thanks for hosting, and have a great holiday!

  6. FIREWORKS!! But with more than half of AZ on fire right now we can't really complain! AND we are moving back home to TX in 2 weeks!! SO excited I love TX! :)

  7. Thanks for hosting! No fireworks stinks, but I can see why they'd do that.

  8. My favorite part of any holiday is spending time with loved ones and the holiday traditions. Hope you have a great time, Meg!

  9. We had the opposite up here - fireworks had to be moved and rescheduled due to FLOODING.

    One of my favorite parts of this holiday is that paper plates and napkins go on clearance right after the holiday. Time to stock up!

  10. Thanks for hosting another great party Meg! My favorite part of the 4th of July this year will be getting to see family members I haven't seen in years! Of course, the food will be nice too :)

  11. Have a great 4th of July! We're visiting family in Texas as well. It is a bummer about the burn ban but oh well!
