It doesn’t have to be the Fourth of July to be patriotic! Red, white, and blue can be worn together anyday.

A lot of men avoid wearing white for one simple reason… they know they will get it dirty. But, you cannot live your life in fear of spilling on your clothes and I know I love a man in white. You could sport the all white look that is huge right now, or even just a white button up. With the heat at an all-time high this year, the lighter the colors you wear, the cooler you will be! So cool off and sport some white threads!

One of my friends had a baby last week and I decided that this would be the perfect time for me to fine tune a go-to meal to use anytime a friend or family member is in need. Move over frozen lasagna!
With my crazy schedule and lack of cooking skills, I was on the hunt for something tasty, quick and simple. I decided on one of my favorite lunches: chicken salad croissant, fresh fruit salad, and chocolate chip cookies. No prep for the recipient and little prep for myself. A total win win! I cheated on the chicken salad (thanks Fry’s deli), bought a container of croissants, and a box of cookie mix and I was on my way.
It’s all about the presentation. You’re giving the family a gift, so make sure it looks like a gift. I came across a posting on Starfish Cottage and used it as inspiration. A spool of tulle ribbon, some foil containers and cute tags make all the difference.
A few things to remember…Don’t forget to add paper plates and plastic silverware. The last thing you want is the new mom or dad doing dishes.
Little treats for the new big brother can also be a great distraction for mom and dad. Crayons, a little coloring book, some stickers, and play dough are perfect.
Tie it all up with you tulle ribbon and you are set for a quick drop (or if you’re lucky like me, a long drop off where you get to hold the new baby!).
Do you have a go-to meal or gift you rely on for friends and family in need?

Whenever I go to the beach in the Northwest, I want two things: my hair pulled back and warm clothes to shield me from the cool wind. This outfit was exactly what I needed!
