Holding Me Accountable – The No Resolution ResolutionJuly 2, 2014
#MediaMonday – Happy Anniversary, Jim!July 7, 2014
Happy 4th of July, everyone! Before we go off for our (hopefully) long weekend, I wanted to ask around and see how everyone celebrates the day.
- Alison: 4th of July weekend is special to me as I met my husband on July 3, 2005. However, he is in public accounting – meaning the “quarter end” close of the books happens during this time of year. That is my convoluted way of saying we don’t get to see each other for pretty much the entire month – leaving me to fend for myself come Independence Day, coincidentally enough. As such, my favorite 4th of Julys are spent in the Midwest with my extended family and our friends out there.
- Rachel: My favorite thing to do on the 4th of July is to go and watch the fireworks with Aiden and then discuss after which ones were our favorite!
- Shelby: My idea of a perfect 4th of July would be getting a group of friends/family together for a cookout and pool party and then be able to see fireworks from the backyard. I love when people dress up patriotically and make festive snacks they find on Pinterest.
- Whitney: Family and friends. When I was a kid it would be to go to my grandparent's house on the golf course and watch the fireworks. Now I like to be with family and friends (especially someone that lives on a mountain) where we can see all the fireworks in the valley. IF that’s not available, then I’m a fan of pool/bbq parties.
- Abbie: Food, family, fun and fireworks.
- Scott: A pool party with friends and family, followed by watching fireworks. Over the years, we’ve watched fireworks from golf courses, football stadiums, Coronado beaches, roadside parking spots, on TV and, of course, from the roof.
- Kelly: As long as I am with good friends/family, with good food and fantastic fireworks, that’s a pretty great 4th of July for me.
What about you? What is your favorite way to celebrate the day?
