July 4th Fun

My 4th of July started off with an American themed SoulCycle class. I was loving the playlist with songs like this and this.

I came home to a sweet surprise from my husband – A customized 4th of July breakfast menu on red & white polka dot paper written in blue. I chose a Protein Pancake and it hit the spot!

He’s the best 🙂

We had ZERO plans for the day so we lounged around for a while before heading out for a bike ride. We ended up riding for about 2 hours and my legs are suffering from spinning + biking.

We made a pit stop at Pier 13 in Hoboken for a couple of reasons. A.) We needed water desperately and B.) I’ve been dying to try Amanda’s Bananas food truck version of frozen yogurt for quite some time now.

The “Frozen Yogurt” is just a frozen banana and then you get it topped with any toppings you’d. I went with the “Banana Cream” flavor and added nutella + 4th of July sprinkles and Adam went with S’mores + sprinkles

SO good… We will definitely be back. We make the banana part at home all of the time but don’t have the fun toppings like they do!

Pier 13 has a few other food trucks we wanted to try, but it was just too hot to be eating pizza, a cheese steak or a lobster roll. I’ll be back for you Luke’s Lobster.

We finished our day off with watching the Macy’s Fireworks from our own deck.


If you watched the Macy’s Firework show on TV you know it is one of the best!

If you missed the show..Here’s a quick clip.

Hope everyone had a great 4th — Back to the grind after 4 days off.



  1. What a man! Love when you come home to surprises like that!! Also, I have become addicted to riding our bikes around this summer too!

  2. I LOVE the idea of banana soft serve. Fireworks aren’t my thing but the macy’s ones always look beautiful!

  3. That sounds like so much fun! Love the day and your patriotic outfit. I’ve made banana froyo before but have never seen something like that place. Sounds delish.

  4. What a nice way to spend the 4th! Those banana froyo’s look amazing!
