Happy early 4th of July! What do you have on the calendar for Independence Day? (Side comment – whenever I use that term, I think of the Will Smith movie about the aliens attacking earth and how I definitely stood in line to see it in theater on July 4th like a total nerd.)
Anyways! I am just super excited for a long weekend of relaxing and fun times with friends. The actual 4th will be spent at some BBQs and a friend’s house to watch fireworks. Then I’m heading to the St Paul Rodeo with some girlfriends on Saturday. And there is plan for a hike and some cronuts (!!) on Sunday. Should be a fun weekend!
If you’re looking for some great recipes, here are a few from other bloggers (most of whom are Portland-based also!) that sound pretty darn awesome to me:
That Patriotic Cake above by SugaryWinzy. Seriously, that looks incredible. Mine would a) take forever and b) not look nearly as pretty. But I would love it if someone made this.

Have a great holiday weekend! xoxo
