July 1, 2019
The 4th of July is right around the corner and we wanted to share a few of our favorite things to do during this national holiday. We love to celebrate with our family and friends whether it be at the beach, lake, or river. We all have our favorite thing about the 4th and we thought we’d share with you! Meghan loves a fun and festive floaty, Candice loves a good patriotic fashion statement on the lake, and Shelbi loves to make her favorite hot dog recipe with her family.
Don’t forget to get a float pump so you don’t have to spend all of your time inflating your floats!
Candice is all stars and stripes when it comes to her outfit choice to celebrate our country’s independence. Finding great deals online is her forte, but she loves to splurge on worthwhile investment pieces. Candice also likes to add fun accessories like her favorite blinking red, white, and blue sunglasses to wear to her family’s annual dock party. You’ll find some of her favorite deals and splurges for the season below!

Shelbi is always searching for a fantastic meal. When she is celebrating the 4th, she loves her family’s favorite go-to holiday meal – hot dogs! When Shelbi introduced a new hot dog recipe she discovered at Publix to her family, they were hooked. Leftovers are no more after introducing this recipe! Cooking together is something Shelbi and her family enjoy as their favorite memories, and it’s always fun to make new ones!
