  1. All of those are so cute! I always make a fruit pizza with the same flag design as Martha's cake. It's so yummy and not *too* terribly bad for you! Have a wonderful 4th! :)

  3. This stuff is GORGEOUS! I'll have to try every single one of those some day becaause...

    the 4th of July is my anniversary! Me and the husband are celebrating one wonderful year of marriage on Sunday! It would be so fun to one day throw a huge 4th of July/anniversary celebration party for our friends and family and go crazy with ideas like the ones above. I love being married on a holiday as fun as the 4th. :]

  9. So cute! I made the strawberry/blueberry flag cake several years ago and it was uber cute and tasty! This year I am making red velvet cookies with white frosting and blue sprinkles.

  13. Hooray for the 4th of July! I can't believe how fast it has snuck up on us! I think, for me at least, that's because I'm not seeing American flags all the time over here in Germany! Of course! :) But oh, how that makes me crave good American patriotism!

    There is going to be a big fireworks display on Post {hooray!!} & the Lieutenant Dan Band is going to be playing! You know, LT Dan from Forrest Gump! How exciting! He's quite the supporter of our fabulous military, & I can't wait to see him & his band!

    And if there's one certainty, it's this: I know I'll cry. During the prayer by the Chaplain or during the National Anthem. I miss my soldier; I miss my country! God Bless America!!

    Ok, I just wrote an entire Post as a comment... Still like me?!! ♥
