  1. Aw, thanks for posting my recipe, Natalie! Your roundup us making me hungry. And I’m totally going to try that Watermelon Limeade…yummy!!! How on earth is it already the 4th of July week?? And I’m another year older on Sunday….

    • Happy early birthday, Amy!!! I know, where has the year gone? Next thing you know it will be a Thanksgiving roundup that you’ll be commenting on!! 😉

  2. YES! i made the roundup this year! because ya’ll know i never make the cut on normal roundups, as my photos are far too un-blogger-like. 🙂 but this roundup is my favorite to be in, anyway.
    happy early birthday to you too, amy!
    movita, i talked to the authorities which handle situations of canadians being featured in american-centric round-ups. it’s legal. but only if canada accepts my dual citizenship request.

    • I actually had to cut out a bunch of your recipes, it was medium ridiculous. Like really, Natalie, this isn’t just an APT roundup! I still have to make your cucumber salad… I’ve been having dreams about it… and the BBQ sauce…
