I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. It was sooooo relaxing for me. With all of my recent traveling it was seriously amazing to spend a weekend chillin with good friends and family.
I’m feeling seriously zen this week. I’m stoked I took it easy. No hangover, just a few extra calories to burn off this week which should be pretty easy (thanks TSC Bombshell Body Guide!! <— Pure GENIUS).
I know that for most people, the 4th of July is usually spent at big BBQ’s or pool parties. In California, most people spend the 4th at the beach. There’s always grandiose fireworks shows and tons of people! It sounds fun, but I’m telling you, year after year dealing with absolutely no parking and all the drunk tourists (that usually end up fighting), you learn to avoid the beach on Independence Day.
Anyway, pretty much every year, I spend the 4th of July at home, with my family. We used to have tons of people over for a big celebration, but over the years it’s become more and more relaxed. We can even drive down to the end of our street for the most amazing view of my favorite fireworks show!
My parents are really the people that encouraged me to learn about this country from a young age, so it only seems fitting that I spend Independence Day with them talking about America, all it’s glory, and all the things we still need to work on.
So thats pretty much what we did! We hung out by the pool, talked about the good ole’ USA, definitely discussed some politics (The 2016 Presidential race is getting.. umm…. well…. interesting??), ate BBQ, and drank American brewed beer! Super local actually, we drank San Diego brewed beer!
I did however, make sure that there was plenty of pretty red, white, and blue around for our casual day + my super amazing Proud To Be An American blanket arrived, I couldn’t be more obsessed!
BTW, Mikey is a seriously talented videographer, see his work HERE.
It was a very relaxing day. We brought blankets, the dogs, and a cooler full of beer. It was seriously so chill. If you live in San Diego I definitely recommend going to the polo fields on Sundays for super relaxed tailgating.
