    These look fabulous! We have no major plans. It was going to be an all out yardwork weekend. It was supposed to be done a few weeks ago but my daughter broke her arm, so we had to postpone it. But instead of all weekend yardwork party, it looks like it may only be a Saturday yardwork party. There’s this nice little storm system (that may or may not turn into a tropical storm) off the southeast coast so there’s a high chance of rain Sunday and Monday. :( Here’s hoping it stays a way but we’re pumping out as much as we can tomorrow in case it rains the rest of the weekend

    That Stars and Stripes cookie cake looks delicious! Is that a whipped frosting or is it just vanilla buttercream on top? I can’t believe that cookie is THAT big-it’s a sugar cookie I’m assuming. I love strawberries and blueberries so that would be perfect for me. Maybe I’ll tackle this on the 4th of July? It’s supposed to be 85 degrees on Monday and I really don’t want to heat up my house as much as I have to.

    Have a great long weekend! :)

    Those pretzel sandwiches look amazing! I love a good salty+sweet combo! My brother is graduating from college this weekend. I think it’s a bit strange to have a college graduation on the Sunday morning of Memorial Day Weekend but oh well!
