#FoodieFriDIY Fourth of July Edition

First and foremost, Happy Fourth of July to all of you! Let there be family, friends, food, and fireworks galore for everyone…except me. Ok, and maybe a lot of other expats.

I am missing 4th of July by 7 days. One week. And I’m willing to bet we’ll just barely miss the parades and most of the festivals and rides and the fun things that go on over the holiday. Sigh. I’m excited about our upcoming move the the US, because if there is one thing Americans do well, it’s celebrating a holiday – even when they are made up (you know, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s/Father’s Day, etc.). Of course, having your family nearby also helps, no matter where you find yourself on the planet.

Today’s theme is all about the sweet treats I expect you’ll be tempted to make for your 4th of July cookout! And be tempted – these are the perfect treats to satisfy the sweet teeth of your many guests. So, take a peek on their blogs, and have a safe and enjoyable Fourth!

So, make sure you stop by their blogs, check out their boards, and see who they featured this week.  

And finally, before I leave you with the link up, please take a quick peak at some of the (not so many) rules we have that help keep things running smoothly week after week:
1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. You may use round ups but please make sure they include links to recipes or tutorials. We would appreciate you linking up different posts week to week …we reserve the right to delete duplicates.
2. We think you are all awesome and love meeting new bloggers (and more awesome people) each week. We´d love if you spread the word about the party in some way, shape, or form!
3. We´re not a pushy group…no real requirements (except that you be a recipe or DIY blogger), but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFridaysDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.
4. If you’d like to include our button on your sidebar or your link party page, or even a link back on the individual post you linked up, we’d love it, but again, there is no requirement to do so.
5. We have a community on Facebook and we like to share! Let us know if you want to join in on the fun!
Happy pinning!

      That is so kind of you to say. I hope we will too. I honestly believe life is the adventure you turn it into, though, so I think we’ll find ways to have new adventures!
