Independence Day

First off, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who gave me their honest advice on my last post. I have stopped communicating with this other guy, besides the occasional friendly "hello", because I realized that the only reason I was continuing the flirtation was because I miss my boyfriend and I miss the attention. Since B is away this summer and I've only seen him once in the past month, it's difficult sometimes to remember how incredible he is. But I talked to him on the phone recently, and was like, "Wow. I love this man." Seriously. He is so incredible in every way, and I am grateful to have him in my life.

In other news, my stolen wallet situation is still being handled. Spent about an hour at the bank today filling out paperwork about the fraudulent charges. And I literally have no cash or credit cards (and no wallet, for goodness' sake!). BUT the great news is I WILL be getting my money back, even if it takes a few days for it all to process.

So, this weekend is Independence Day--July 4th!

My family is hosting a BBQ with some family and close friends--probably around 20 people total. We are going to be grilling burgers, hotdogs, "brats" (bratwurst--my mom's favorite), and I am in charge of making a summer salad and a red-white-and-blue cake! (I'm thinking of decorating it with cool whip, blueberries, and strawberries--yum!). People are bringing other side dishes.

I am a little nervous about the holiday, as I am with any BBQ event since it is focused around FOOD. However, I have my coping mechanisms and my support with me this weekend, so all will be well.

What are your big Independence Day plans?


  1. This Independence Day, the dance team that I coach will be performing in a parade, so I am going to cheer them on from the sidelines!

    I'm always nervous about attending events that revolve around food. I've noticed that most holidays do revolve around food, and that seriously pisses me off because it frequently makes me dread holidays. Holidays should be fun, no something to dread!

    That's great that you're making a salad because then there will be something that you know you're confident eating. Then, try some of the other stuff and see if you like that too. Be bold! On this Independence Day, claim independence from ED!!


  2. Good luck, you will do great, I know it. Most important: remember to enjoy yourself and have fun! You're worth it!
