Happy Friday! This is going to be one of those crazy months for me. Last weekend my nephew got married in Tennessee…what a great weekend and wedding! The bride works for Kendra Scott Jewelry, and they hosted a shopping event for the wedding party and relatives. If you’re not familiar with their jewelry, you should definitely check it out! Believe me, I had fun shopping. I got a great ring (very unusual) and earrings that went perfectly with my dress!
The reception was held at the Loveless Barn in Nashville (very cool place), the food was fantastic, and the band was out of this world. It was one of the nicest weddings I have ever been to!
I know I speak for the entire family when I say I wish my father-in-law could have been there to see it. For those of you who don’t know, my father-in-law passed away two summers ago, and we all miss him dearly. He loved a good party! It gave me a lot of joy to see my daughter dancing with one of his oldest and dearest friends. I know he would have loved it too.
This weekend I’m off to Florida with a few of my running friends to run The 7 Mile Bridge Run in Marathon. I feel like I’ve barely been home, and off I go again. I probably won’t be doing any sharing until I get back, because I will already have left when this party goes live. 🙂 But please feel free to share on my Facebook wall while I am gone!
This week when I was looking through all the recipes, cookies kept jumping out at me. It’s like everyone was in a baking mood this past week! So I hope you are in an indulging mood, because you are going to love these recipes. And to get you in the mood, I’ll even share a sweet treat of my own with you. 🙂
These Lemon Blueberry Bars are a big family favorite. And hey, they have blueberries in them, so they’re kind of on the healthier side…

Ready for the party?
We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask.
1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.
2. We’d be truly grateful if you shared our party to other food and DIY blog friends so others can join in the fun! Tweet us. Share us on Facebook (the party will go up on my Facebook page on Thursday evening, if you’d like to share from there). However you can help us spread the word, we appreciate!
[Tweet “Increase your traffic, come party at #FoodieFriDIY! @dishofdailylife loves to SHARE!”]
3. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.
4. We’d love it if you’d follow us on Pinterest.
Don’t forget after you get done linking up to drop by my Facebook page and share your favorite recipes or DIY project that you have linked up…I will make sure to show your post some love on some form of social media! Please be sure to share either the link or the number in the link up so it’s easy for me to find it.
Let’s get this party started!
