My Top #5 Pinterest Inspirations for the 4th of July!

Wow, 4th of July already!? Where is the summer going!? I know for Todd and I, it has been packed with wedding planning, catering events, family trips, grilling, and enjoying beautiful sunny evenings out on the deck. It's a wonderful life, and we are enjoying every minute of this lovely Minnesota season.

This weekend we will travel to northern Minnesota to my hometown of Virginia. It's a family filled fun weekend we make a promise to do each year. What will we all be making? It's still up in the air at this point, but here are my top 5 Pinterest inspirations, (in order of importance... duh!) I just can't decide!! PLEASE HELP!

#1: Fireworks Cookies
Of course these little beauties LOOK hard, but after a quick review of the recipe, they seem pretty darn easy. Super cute and fun way to dress up a classic sugar cookie for the holiday.

#2: Stars and Stripes Pie
Um, this picture says a THOUSAND words. It's B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. My only terror is that mine will look absolutely nothing like this. I guess you never know until you try, right?

#5: Sangria
This sangria looks festive and looks refreshing on a hot summer day. Not too sweet with a punch of fresh fruit? What's not to love?
