Celebrate Father’s Day + A Summer Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #IceColdSummerMoments

Hey everyone, I hope this post finds you well. I am so excited for todays post because I am bringing you a little bit of everything today. A party, a summer recipe, and good deals at Target. What better way to show you an awesome summer party that not only include the cutest decor, but also two super easy and super delicious summer recipes. These are the top two recipes that are on repeat here at our house for the summer. They are a definite crowd pleaser and pair perfectly with our favorite Share A Coke Coca-Cola™. This month of June I am beyond excited to celebrate the favorite men in my life. Spencer and my dad are heroes in my eyes and they deserve more than just one day of celebrating them. But for now we will just focus on that one special day, Father’s Day!

First and foremost, my favorite part, the shopping part. As always Target is one of my go-to stores when it comes to entertainment. I love that I can find anything for my home decor and also get some groceries while I’m there. I got a couple of extra things that I used for this Father’s Day celebration. Including paper straws that I have to have at every party because they make everything so cute and I got the table place mats. The plates from their party section and of course the Share A Coke Coca-Cola, because having greats drinks is all part of a successful get-together. I also got a few of the groceries I needed to make these summer recipes I am sharing with you. So let’s get to it and let me show you the set up.

 There is no one I would share an Ice Cold Coke than with the people that celebrated Father's Day with us today. It was such a memorable evening and I am so glad we were all able to be together. A little something extra that I wanted to add to my table were some printables that would tie into the whole Father’s Day theme. I found them free online and just printed them at home. 

A super plus for me was that I was able to use a cartwheel coupon to buy my Share A Coke Coca-Cola 20 oz bottles using this coupon . So make sure you take advantage of this deal when you use your cartwheel app at checkout. 

Now that Share A Coke is back, they have over 1,000 new names including last names and I was so excited that I found Spencers name!! Now I am on the hunt to find my name. 

Street Corn Recipe 
What you will need:
Large sweet ears of corn 
1 lime 
Chile powder 
quest fresco, cotija, or shredded Parmesan 
How to:

How will you be spending your Father’s day this year? Whether you will be celebrating with your dad, gran-dad, soon to be dad, if your brother is a dad, or honoring a late relative who is a father figure, I hope you shop at Target and find everything you need. I hope you all have a great Father’s Day!
