Celebrate Your Story! #187

Oh my gosh!  I cannot believe we are into July already!!  I hope you all have some great plans for the 4th.  Our plan is to be somewhere close to water (on the beach) since it is already so blasted hot!

I clearly have food on the brain as all of my favorites have something to do with eating!  They are all perfect for the 4th of July and that's what we do on the 4th, right...eat anything and everything?!  OR, maybe that's just me. :-)

Serving Up Southern shared this awesome All-American BBQ Sauce.
I will be making some of this for our BBQ this week.  YUM!

Wondermom Wannabe shared this awesome Homemade Chocolate Chunk Raspberry Ice Cream.
Chocolate and raspberries are a winning combination!! 

This Red, White and Blue Homemade Ice Cream recipe from 3 Boys and a Dog looks fabulous also!
I really need to get a bowl of ice cream to take care of these cravings. :-)

Our most clicked-on link from last week was this beautiful Summertime Garden Room from Common Ground.
So festive for the 4th!
