4th of July Weekend Extravaganza

Leave a comment

What a week it has been! Sorry for being MIA, between the move, an impromptu visit by the BF back to Madison, work and the holiday weekend, it’s been hard to find time to keep up! First up, July 4th festivities!

The BF made a surprise visit due to a job interview in Madison today. He was lucky enough to be able to fly in early and be around for the weekend. He flew in early on July 4 and we spent the rest of the day celebrating with my friend from work, her husband and family. Her husband took us all out on their boat! It was a perfect day in Madison, high 70s, no wind and barely a cloud in the sky.

I tried wakeboarding, I got up but not for long, haha! It was really fun. We sipped on white sangria throughout the day, it was delicious!

White Wine, vodka, simple syrup, triple sec and fruit - strawberries, blueberries and apples, cut into stars!

I found the recipe on Pinterest, adapted it a little, and put a couple batches over ice for the day. We had a great BBQ on the patio as the sun went down and caught the fireworks over Blackhawk Country Club in Madison. Memorable 4th of July! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday!
