Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend celebrating all those amazing dads in our lives! Our plan today is to do my husband’s favorite thing…..absolutely nothing! 🙂  What are your plans for Father’s Day?

This past Thrifty Thursday was one of our biggest ever–just under 500 budget friendly posts linked up! I especially enjoyed all the fantastic summer recipes and ideas, and it is SO hard to narrow it down to just a few. In any case, here are my picks for Weekend Wandering:
