As we are both Swedish-Americans we have to celebrate. We celebrated the Swedish national day on June 6:th and now it is time to get ready for Independence Day. We will have to with what can be done. There won´t be any parade or fire crackers but a whole lot of good country music, beer, burgers and a great time with friends :-)
I have been checking out Martha Stewart´s website today for inspiration of what to make and what kind of decorations to have.
We got an invitation to our neighbors traditional 4th of July party. Unfortunately we won´t be able to make it. Wish we had a private jet and could fly over for a weekend like that. That would have been awesome. We are happy for the invitation anyway and we will miss not being there of course.
I actually checked the website for the US embassy wondering if they would have any kind of celebration going on. I searched their website and found out they already had celebrated Independence Day on May 27! Cheaters! It had been extra early celebration this year because of someone important that could not make it later on. But it seems like they usually celebrate some days before the actual day.
Now C is playing this song that really has some funny lyrics..." save a horse, ride a cowboy instead". Well...if it is a handsome good looking cowboy hey yeah ;-)
