|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!
