4th of July

I don't know about the rest of you, but I could really get used to having Wednesday off!  I had such a great 3rd and 4th and the best way to describe it is by what I ate! 

Friday night I kicked off the celebrations at a friends BBQ.  It was so delicious and she really knows how to pull a holiday meal together.

Wednesday night we went to dinner at RPM Italian with another couple.  I know I know Italian food is not what you should be eating on the 4th of July, but we got a reservation!  To make up for it we decided to watch fireworks and eat a dessert that was uber American. 

We made our very own sundae bar.  It was pretty amazing.

My final creation: vanilla bean ice cream, crushed waffle cone, rainbow sprinkles, hot fudge, caramel, butterscotch, whipped cream and not one but TWO cherries on top. 

It was pretty much pure bliss.  Another bonus is in Chicago if you have view of the suburbs from a high rise you get to see pretty much every firework show for several miles.  It is pretty incredible!
