Make Your Holiday Weekend a BANG!

4th of JulyIt’s 4th of July – America’s birthday!  What a joyous time to unplug and celebrate with the ones you love most.  And guess what?  This long weekend, all of us here at Houston Moms Blog will be doing just that!  We won’t be posting any new content, and our social media accounts are going to be a little quieter.  But rest assured, we will be back in full swing come Monday with some awesome posts you won’t want to miss!

In the meantime, we are going to be soaking up some family time by popping fireworks with our kiddos and drinking cold ones with our hubbies.  {Just not at the same time – because that could get dangerous!}  But before we go, we want to leave you with a few fun ideas to make sure that this long, holiday weekend is an absolute BANG for you and your family too…

  • Not sure about you, but to me – nothing says holiday weekend like an ice cold adult beverage!  If you have yet to try it out, my perfect white wine sangria recipe would be absolutely ideal on these hot summer days.  {Meagan even suggested using blueberries and strawberries to make it nice and festive this weekend – how fun is that?!?}  And Andrea’s margarita recipe is so easy – yet so, so good too!
  • Have company in town…or just feel like whipping up some deliciousness for you and the fam?  Try Tiffanie’s summer salad recipe or Jenn’s healthy wings.  Both of those have been added to my weekend meal plans, and I am sooo looking forward to it!
  • Or if you want to get the kiddos in the kitchen with you, check out Jessica and Sarah’s homemade popsicle recipes or even Jana’s summer smoothie recipes!  {Both links have TONS of different flavor combinations and are such a great way to pack some fruit and veggies in after a junk filled holiday!}
  • And if you’re hitting the road and heading to the Alamo City {…or even just passing through!}, don’t forget to check out my guide to traveling San Antonio.  It’s pretty great, if I do say so myself!

Okay, so have you checked out the links above and come up with a game plan for the weekend yet?  Great!  Time to put away those computers and tablets and celebrate the 4th of July.  We will see you back on Monday, mamas!  And until then, I’ll be spending every moment of this sweet summer weekend with these two…

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
