We decorate WAY in advance for holidays around here. Partly that's because I have no idea how to decorate "normally" (as in, not by theming around a holiday.) So our house looks really bare if there is no holiday decor up. I usually pull out the 4th of July decor on June 1st and leave it up until September when I start decorating for Halloween. (It's okay for you purists to be cringing right now. Just don't come over to my house, um, ever.)
I've thought about this a lot, and I think probably this is entirely not my fault and is due to a gaping hole in our education system. Obviously they need a major in college that's like Adulthood 101, where they teach you how to argue with cell phone companies, set up retirement accounts, make curtains out of bedsheets, put together a decent-looking flowerbed and make a PB&J that won't get soggy within two hours. (Annd decorate your house, of course.)
These are the real things one needs to know in life.
Due to the lack of this major at my college I have successfully kept the "For Dummies" book series in business single-handedly for the last five years. But since there's no pictures I haven't really learned much.
I've gotten way off track but the point is that my world pretty much revolves around holidays and I couldn't wait to share this 4th of July breakfast idea with you. I saw donut hole fruit skewers on Pinterest and thought all the red and blue fruits would be perfect for the 4th of July. I cut some stars out of strawberries to be extra patriotic. If you have kids, these are so easy they can even make their own.
We went to the zoo this morning, so excuse me while I go shower off elephant smell.
