Happy 4th!!

Happy 4th of July!! 
We are celebrating with family and friends.  Good food, good drink and good fun!!  The Rocket Scientist got a new grill and was dying to try it out, so we have ribs, steak and corn on the cob on the grill, I made my mom's potato salad recipe and a new summer pineapple salad recipe, made some brownies and Sarah brought some Patriotic Krispy Kreme Donuts!!

The centerpiece up above only took me a little bit of time to make this morning.  I got the planter from Goodwill, bought the flags from Wal-Mart and used some floral foam to put it together, adding blue raffia as filler inside! A super easy certerpiece with no gluing involved!  Inspired by Martha Stewart.

I thought of you yesterday my American friend, and hope you had a ton of fun. The Krispy Kreme donuts alone are worth celebration but when you add freedom and democracy to the mix its win-win-win.

Wow, it sounds like you had a fabulous 4th. I tried, but with the clouds I was not able to see the shuttle launch today. Of all days, I really wanted to see this one. It is so hard to believe it is the last!
