Friday Favorites

Today's Friday Favorites is dedicated to one of my very favorite holidays: the Fourth of July!

I'm working with Amanda on another little project and discovered these fabulous Fourth of July freebies.  You just have to "like" her Facebook page.   All the things!!

My favorite cherry pie:  I use this recipe with this crust.   Yes, it takes a bit more effort to make a crust from scratch than using Pillsbury's.  Yes, it takes a bit more effort to make the pie filling from scratch instead of the canned "cherry pie filling".  But one bite of this pie and I guarantee you that allllll that effort is worth it.

A lovely little red and white Hamptons hideaway.  I NEED that chair.

How cute is Michelle Williams?  Inspired by this post, I made a sweet little Fourth of July outfit that's perfect for a cookout and fireworks.

My blog crush, Jenny Steffens Hobick, has conveniently rounded up all of her Fourth of July posts in one place.  There are menus, recipes, table settings, and all sorts of inspirational eye-candy goodness.

What are your plans for the Fourth?

Love the pictures!
We're going to a big multi-family coookout. I'm not positive on outfit yet, but it will likely be a sleeveless and shorts outfit!

The 4th is one of my favorite holidays too! Eating, playing, boozing and swimming - that's what I'll be doing! Have a great weekend!
