Holiday Roundup: Fourth of July

After celebrating the third, fourth AND fifth of July, it’s officially back to reality… [sigh].

Year after year, my family celebrates the day before America’s birthday with a big, celebratory bash at Nobu Malibu. We dress things up and break it down with the cool kids [like Snoop Dog, who turned things up this year with his mad DJ skillz]. The party brings my closest friends from the midwest to Cali-land for a few days, which basically means my heart [and wine glass] is crazy full for a week.

Of course, we also had to celebrate the fourth with fireworks, greasy food and dance parties. By the fifth, we were supposed to be back at work… but somehow, flights were missed and we found ourselves in a karaoke-like party on a Tuesday night. Oops.

I have no voice and stayed up like I was 21 again. It was magical.
