A cake, some pool fun and a few fill ins

July 4, 2013

I hope, everyone had a happy and healthy and safe 4th of July.

We had a nice day! I did some baking

7-4 flag cake

and we had some fun in the pool…

7-4 pool fun

and we also enjoyed a nice lunch sitting in our bathing suits by the pool.

Later on, we went to a little 4th of July get together and finished off the night with watching fireworks by one of the lakes in the neighborhood.

Like I said, a nice day. My kind of day.

And now, to finish it all off, a few blanks to fill in and my turn as co-host!


Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on our own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her   If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is your’s truly 🙂 and I came up with the last two statements!

Hilary and I would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:
1. I don’t like ___
2. I have a difficult time using ____
3. I love ____ movies because ____
4. I prefer to read ____because ___

My answers:

1. I don’t like fake peopleyou know, the ones that smile in your face but couldn’t care less if you dropped dead tomorrow?

2. I have a difficult time using my brain to it’s full capacity late at night when I am tired and all I want is to crawl into my comfy bed.

3. I love action/adventure movies because they are entertaining and I love me a handsome hero. I could watch Iron Man, Super Man, Thor, and The Avengers over and over again… 


4. I prefer to read YA and romance novels because I like a happy ending and when I have time to read I want to have something that flows easily and makes me immerse myself in the story.


Your turn! What will you fill in the blank? I can’t wait to see…

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    Hey Susi, I saw your instagram photos from the 4th. Your cake looked awesome! I tried making one of these quite a few years ago for my son’s birthday (he was born on the 4th of July). Mine did not turn out as pretty as yours. Have a great weekend.

      Tami, I bet it was still pretty! I made it for the first time last year and improved the recipe a bit. It was soooooo yummy! The same to you. Kisses for Corbie!

    Oh, I know those fake people you speak of and I feel the same way!

    • Susi July 6, 2013 at 9:33 am

      Guess, it’s just the way of the world…

  • Yvonne July 6, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    I agree about the fake people. I had a similar answer to #1. I love action/adventure movies too.

    Have a great weekend!

    Love the cake!!
    Glad to hear you had fun 4th!! sorry I couldn’t drop by …
    ….and by that you know I mean your pool. haha.
    Agreed on the fake people. Time and space wasters.
    And also on the action movies — I just watched Avengers (again) the other day! And I have been known to dive into a good romance novel too.
