My Birthday and Fourth of July

It's my Birthday  today!

 and the big summer holiday weekend is upon us already! Can you believe it? Seems like it took so long for summer to get here!

I am heading down the shore to my beach house. yippee!!

 This weekend is always fun, It's Fourth of July weekend!!
What do you do on 4th of July?
Get together with family or friends or both?
We BBQ, like most people.
Do you have any great recipes to share? Feel free to post a link in the comments.
 I'm always on the lookout for some special holiday treats. Only one condition, it has to be easy.
Any family traditions?
My sister makes these cute napkin rings for the Summer Holidays.

I like to bring out the vintage table cloths

And I usually always make this cake.

Which is the simplest thing in the world.
I use angel cake ( you can bake your own if you want)

  • 1st layer in vanilla pudding
  • break cake into pieces for 2nd layer
  • layer of whip cream
  • decorate with blueberries and strawberries to resemble a flag!!

Happy July Fourth weekend!!

Have a good one!
