Red, White & BBQ Ladies Only Blog Share #LOBS

Happy 4th of July everyone! Most of us have plans over the weekend that include BBQs or fireworks. With that in mind, our Ladies Only Blog Share is all about those weekend parties and gatherings. Whether you’re a guest or you’re hosting, we’ve got you covered for recipes, decorating and picture taking! Please include your patriotic posts…this weekend is all about celebrating our country’s independence!

Once again, here are your hosts / co-hosts!

As your hosts, we’d love to connect with you! Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google +…. my buttons are all at the top of the page by my header. Write me a note letting me know that you are visiting for the Ladies Only Blog Share or #LOBS, either in the comments below or or feel free to send me a tweet or leave me a note on Facebook! I’ll be sure to return the favor…and I know my co-hosts will do the same. In addition to our link share, I’d also like to share a few posts that I really enjoyed…hopefully you will as well!

Photographing fireworks can be challenging, but Courtney from Click It Up a Notch takes a bit of the mystery away with her post on How to Photograph Fireworks. I’ll give you a hint…it’s all about the shutter speed. If you’re looking to improve your photography skills, Click It Up a Notch is the place to be!

If you want to take photos of the kids with sparklers, you’ll want to check out this post from Jill at One Good Thing by Jillee. I’ve always wanted to capture photos like this! Jill’s site is full of all sorts of great information, from DIY to homemade solutions to recipes and crafts!

Check out these M&M Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches from Sara and Kate at Our Best Bites. Don’t they look so good? And while you’re at it, you might want to check out all their other patriotic theme party ideas! There are tons of great craft ideas, tutorials and delicious recipes on their site as well!!

Celebrate patriotism with Red, White & Blue decor ideas with Cathy from Adore Your Place. While you’re visiting, you might want to also visit some of Cathy’s other featured patriotic posts…her post on A True Hero WILL touch your heart.

And then there was this story I read this morning about a 4th of July that I know if it happened to me, I would NEVER forget it. I will let you read it for yourself. Falling From the Sky on the 4th of July, over at the In The Powder Room!

I added my post about camping because that's what we did for July 4th. Haha. Hope that's okay.

Glad to follow the ladies who are photographers! I just inherited my husband's old Canon DSLR and I'm learning how to use it, so I will be following you all looking for some tips...

Thanks for hosting!
