I am hosting a 4th of July Party at my house on Monday and I couldn't be more excited to be (sarcastically? ironically?) patriotic for the day eating hot dogs, indulging in a pie-eating contest, making s'mores, getting water balloons thrown at me, and screening 'Wet Hot American Summer' in my backyard.
My friends and I had a tie-dying party last week and I purchased a pair of 90's Calvin Klein high-waisted jeans from the thrift store and made them into cut-offs, dip-dyed them in bleach and then painted stars and stripes on them...not to mention I'm going to be pairing them with a Bruce Springsteen 'Born In The U.S.A.' t-shirt...not cheesy at all. My housemate Sara tie-dyed a gigantic American Flag, and my backyard is now filled with pretty lights hanging from all the trees for when the sun goes down.
Hopefully I'll have some fun photos to share next week!
