Happy Friday! I’m excited to be back to kick off the weekend. It feels like it’s been awhile! Last weekend we were visiting Chicago for the first time, and this weekend we are headed up to Sonoma County to celebrate Father’s Day with my in-laws. I’m trying to brainstorm something delicious that will be a hit with all the dads for our Sunday Night Dinner…Last year I made my dad an ice cream cake featuring his favorite flavor, pistachio, and it was epic! How do you plan to celebrate the fathers in your life this weekend?
If you’re looking for some light reading this weekend, here’s what’s on my mind right now…
Of the Cooking Variety
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I love reading cookbooks in the morning while I drink coffee. Not always possible with a toddler around, but I try! This book is on my coffee table right now, and I’ve already bookmarked a ton of recipes I’m dying to try.
Drink of the Summer?
Speaking of refreshing drinks, any idea what the new trendy drink of summer will be this year? Bartenders make their predictions here. I’m on board with any and all of them!
Sandals for the Season
Last but not least, let’s talk about feet. Okay, not feet, but sandals. I’m all about sneakers, but lately, I’ve been looking for a super comfortable sandal I can wear all over town. Considering this classic pair, but open to recommendations. Any ideas?
In case you missed it, here are the week’s posts from San Francisco Moms Blog and Mid-Peninsula Moms Blog.
Kelly got to tour the San Mateo County Fair before it opened to the public. Check out our Instagram story for pics and videos and her write up of why this is a must do with the family. It ends this weekend!
Shannon gets deeply personal, talking about how she missed the signs of postpartum depression for two years, all because those well-meaning memes about how hard motherhood is made her feel like everyone’s experience was as extreme as hers.
