Happy Independence Day, America! Have you ever been more excited about it being Friday? Okay, to be honest, we probably have… but this weekend is definitely going to be so much fun! When else do you get to see fireworks light up your neighborhood in celebration of a single national holiday?! In honor of this special day, we’re having a July 4th-themed Friday Favorites this week:
– Jello shots! Make these boozy treats more festive by layering red, white, and blue jello. Brit + Co. makes theirs extra cute by putting it in thin glasses and topping off the dessert with whipped cream.
– Understanding the context of this historic day might help you appreciate it more. Try picking up 1776 by David McCullough, George Washington: A Biography by Washington Irving, or Angel in the Whirlwind by Benson Bobrick.
– Looking for a good spot to watch fireworks? Here are places we might hit tonight as official Los Angeles residents. (Thanks LA Weekly!)
– You can finally go shopping with this weekend off! There are some great deals going on today, too.
Have a fun-filled, festive weekend!! ♥
