Friday Finds 6.14.13

Fathers Day Love:
I'm blessed because this year I will get to spend time with my own Dad on Father's Day AND celebrate  Stephen's first Father's Day. I love my baby daddy. These men are so important and deserve the very best. 

 Fathers Day Fare:
Next up on our salad menu is this Buffalo Chicken Tender Salad with Creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing. We love some buffalo chicken in this household. I think this would be perfect for Father's Day as well! 

Summer Veggies:
Hands down, the best salad in the world to me is the caprese salad. We went out for dinner Wednesday night and had the most amazing version of it. I could eat that every day, what about you?

And we grilled out last night with lots of fresh summer veggies.

Fresh Flowers
You know that saying about some women want swimming pools, others want closets? I guess you can say I want hydrangeas! I think our money sits planted in our yard. We are total suckers for a new plant every time we visit a nursery or Lowe's. I think we have three new varieties this year alone. Nothing beats getting a fresh vase of flowers straight from the yard!

New Makeup:
I've been using Clinique's BB Cream but I'm giving the latest thing, CC Cream a try. So far so good! The most important thing for me is that Clinique's version has a broad spectrum SPF 30, which I want every single day. Find it here

Definitely something I need to keep in mind and remember. 

Wishing you a happy weekend.

And linking up with the ladies of 5 on Friday!

I am dying over your hydrangea bushes. Did you plant them or where they there when you bought the house? We had ZERO hydranges in our yard when we purchased our house and that is my very favorite flower so we planted bush after bush after bush earlier this spring and they are looking AWESOME!

You know you can change the color too, right?! I am trying to turn mine dark purple! :)

I Love hydrangeas! We planted some last year and they are absolutely stunning right now! I love walking outside just so I can admire them. And also, that buffalo chicken salad looks delicious! We might be trying that out soon.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful! I think the yard is an excellent place to spend money- you reap the reward all year long!

Um, can I just start off by saying that I love that you wrote the sentence "I love my baby daddy"?!?! HAHA, precious!!!

I am dying for some pretty hydrangeas in our yard. Ian and I were on a walk Wednesday night and were both developing total neighbor envy with their hydrangeas. Time for us to plant some of our own!

Some women want pools, some want closets. What about the women who wants both?! :) <3

That pic of Stephen and Weeks is so good! Hope he had a wonderful first Father's day! I may have to come back to your beautiful yard and get some macro shot of the hydrangeas!
