Summer Travel and TFT #394

Welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things Link Party!

I hope you’ve all had a good week, and that those who had Father’s Day celebrations enjoyed the day.  My nephew and niece hosted a spur of the moment party, and we enjoyed home-made pasta con broccoli, (and my sweet niece even made a gluten free batch for me!)   Family gatherings are special, and, as I get older, I appreciate them even more.

A couple of my features this week center around travel, and one of them will help you pack for the beach.  My husband and I are having a beach vacation in October to celebrate our anniversary, and I am so longing to hear those waves!

 This is how we spend our mornings and evenings (etc…) at the beach. Looking at and listening to the ocean, while we drink coffee.  Ahhh, I get more relaxed just thinking about it.

We’re landlocked here in Missouri, (in St. Louis, home of the STANLEY CUP winning St. Louis Blues!), and I haven’t seen the ocean for several years.  (P.S. If you have recently heard a hockey fan say “play Gloria,” just know if has to to with the St. Louis Blues and a particular 80’s Laura Branigan song that enhanced this amazing season.  You may want to google that…)  The parade last weekend was amazing.   Play Gloria!

And now, here are my features from last week’s party:

Please pin from the original blog, and don’t forget to leave a comment with your link number. Thanks!

The Style Safari reminded me of some things I might need to pack for the beach.  (I don’t look as cute as this girl when I’m at the beach…)

If your vacation involves a road trip, you must make this wonderful license plate game.  The Comic Con Family shows us how (with a free printable!)

While this next feature isn’t about travel, it could be a fun project to do with your kids this summer.  I would have loved this crazy cute dollhouse, made from a bookcase from Interior Frugalista, for my Barbies.  

Don’t forget about the summer style giveaway:

  2. Pam, I totally understand the longing to hear those waves. I'm in landlocked Alberta, Canada, home of the Edmonton Oilers! In the summer we head to the beaches of either our Okanagan Valley or Vancouver Island and in the winter we head to the beaches of Mexico. Those are my happy places and I long for them often. Thank you so much for featuring my dollhouse bookcase! It's been such a fun project to gift to my granddaughter one day and I have so many plans for it. Have a great week!
