Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post.

Happy Father’s Day everyone! I’m hoping you’re spending the day spoiling your dad and showing him just how much you love him. I’m so very happy to be spending the day with my dad, along with the rest of my very large family, while on vacation here in the Caribbean. It’s been such a fun trip and so great to unplug and recharge my batteries a little.

Spending time with my family is the best. We’ve been soaking up the sun, doing some silly touristy things, and simply enjoying warm weather, it’s pretty much perfect. Definitely feeling very lucky and happy right now.

Coming up this week on HBH I’ll be kicking the week off with a summer salad, moving on to something a little fruity, sharing a cheesy quesadilla, a fun chicken dish, and ending the week with something cold…but of course delicious!

1. NYC Tablescaping Workshop with Anthropologie. 

SO very excited to share that I will be hosting a Tablescaping Workshop with Anthropologie in NYC! The workshop will be held Sunday, June 24th from 11am-12pm. Directly following the workshop will be a book signing and meet and greet. I would LOVE to see you there and can’t wait to connect and talk with some of you NYC readers!

There is limited space available for the workshop, so if you have yet to RSVP, you can do so here.

I will be demonstrating how I set up a perfect summer tablescape, and sharing a few of my entertaining tips as well. It’s going to be a lot of fun, so come say high, grab a mimosa, and nibble on a few snacks!

3. Beach Themed Summer Dinner…

4. A few places I have been around the web. 

I shared this super easy Fajita Bowl with my girls over at The Chriselle Factor. If you’re looking for an easy fajita recipe, this is it. Not only is it easy, it’s colorful, healthy, and delicious. Read about how to make them and grab the recipe here.

Also over on The Chriselle Factor is this easy no-cook grilled shrimp scampi with zucchini noodles dish. Loving this recipe so much right now. It’s the perfect summertime recipe.

Over on the Crate and Barrel blog, I shared this fun Milkshake Bar. Yes, a milkshake bar. How fun is that?! Grab some of my tips and tricks here.

And finally, I shared a peak inside my breakfast nook. Read about that here.

  3. cooking. I am so grateful to get to cook everyday and be able to share my recipes with family, friends, and all of you!

Bonus: Our Local Firefighters

As some of you may know, a fire broke out earlier this week very close to my home in Silverthorne, CO. Thankfully we did not have to evacuate, but many residents did. So grateful for the incredibly brave fire firefighters who’ve been working non-stop to get the fire under control.
