It's that time again! Time for Friday Favorites...linking up with Amanda from Meet Me at the Barre :)

Favorite Moment

Abby had her baby!! She gave birth Wednesday, June 11th at 8:21 pm to an amazingly PERFECT baby girl <3

Cohen Patricia Hendler 
(middle name after Abby's late mother) 

I could have cried tears of joy - my heart is so full. It was bitter sweet because I wished I could have been there...had I still lived in Akron, I would've been there the entire time and gotten to hold her right away. But I'm counting down the minutes until Saturday, so I can race up there and meet her and give my Sissy the biggest hug!!

My gorgeous niece...


Favorite Recipe

Broccoli Cauliflower Bacon Salad
I made this last weekend for a cook-out we had with friends and it was delicious! A couple of you asked me about it, so I thought I would share the recipe since it is so simple and perfect to take to summer get togethers! 

Prep Time:  30 minutes
6 servings


1 head broccoli
1 head cauliflower
1 small onion diced
1 cup frozen corn (I used fresh - 2 ears, cooked it and cut off the cob)
6 slices bacon chopped (I used 8 or 9)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/8 cup sugar
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar


Break up cauliflower and broccoli into tiny flourettes. Finely chop the onion. Cook and chop bacon. Add vegetables and bacon together. Mix dressing and pour over vegetables and bacon and mix.

I added a bit more dressing mixture to mine than listed above - really just add based on your own taste! :)
