How was your 4th of July? Because of the drought Texas is having they banned fireworks this year which was kind of strange and didn’t feel like 4th of July. We still had a great weekend with friends and neighbors. One of the dips I made this weekend was an onion dip. I’ve held on to this for a while now and finally got around to making it. You have to love onions for this one! I was amazed at how sweet it turned out. Overall I liked it, but with it taking so long to cook down I doubt I’ll be making it all the time.

Here’s my wreath I made using glittered tulle since I couldn’t find the ribbon I wanted to use. It looks like the glitter fairy exploded in my craft room! HERE’S where I got my inspiration from. I love it!! It sparkles from the street and looks like fireworks.
