What do you do for your hubby on Father’s Day?

He does so much for our family and helps me with Half Size Me all the time! I would be lost without his help. I love my hubby very much!

Just like most men he likes BBQ and he likes to go out for a huge breakfast. I, of course, do what I do M-F and take care of the kiddos so he can have some much needed down time.

If you have any suggestions for your favorite recipes or healthy cooking blogs, please tell me about them in the comments section below!
