Friend Making Mondays

This week's edition is guest hosted by Shawn from Seriously.

What are you doing this July 4th?
I have no idea at this point. Mr. Wright has to work, but I'm sure someone in the family will have a BBQ. At least I'm hoping... I'm sure there will be potato salad there!

What's your favorite dish to pass while attending a 4th of July party or summer BBQ?
I'm usually pretty lazy about making stuff and I like to come just to eat, but I love red, white and blue desserts and have a special one in mind for this year.

Do you have any July 4th traditions?
Not really... fireworks suck in Alaska since it never gets dark enough in the summer so we usually just have a BBQ.

Yep, that's snow. We went up to my parent's house to go fishing last year, and took the old road over the mountain home. At the very top the snow hardly ever melts, despite the 80 degree temperature that day! The kids loved to play in the snow for a few minutes and then be able to leave it behind!

Happy Friend Making Monday!!

Snow on the 4th? Now that's a new one for me.

We visited Alaska once and loved it! I was surprised at how not cold it was. To make up for no fireworks eat double the BBQ!

That stinks that you guys can't have fireworks - we won't be able to have them this year because it's so dry in Texas!

Oh my gosh, snow on the 4th of July!!?? I would just die. Forget that lame rhyming, it had to be said.

And I am SOOOOO with you on the just showing up to eat part!! That sounds like me! It's not that I can't make stuff, I just usually don't. I know, horrible.

That would also suck to not have it dark enough for fireworks. Shoot, it sucks period!!

Fireworks are illegal in the the Mat-Su Borough except for the city limits of Houston and through special proclamation in the city limits of Wasilla. You don't live either of those places. Thought I would remind you. You're welcome!!!
