Another Fourth of July has come and gone, and while I sat on my couch digesting the copious amounts of fatty food I scarfed this weekend, I turned to social media to ease my weary stomach and take my mind off of my gluttonous eating habits.

As I'm sure was the case for everyone this weekend, my news feed was swamped with the fun, outdoorsy, and American flag-clad activities of friends, family, and celebrities. Whether they were on the road, BBQing, hanging out as a group, or even non-Americans here's what the celebration of American independence meant for these ... celebrities:

1. Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe, and Amy Poehler

2. Kate Hudson

☕️7:30am and I'm feeling seriously patriotic! Happy 4th of July! ❤️❤️

3. Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran

When Ed shows up in a red coat for the 4th of July because he just can't let it go.
