Hiking in Oregon

We went to Oregon earlier this month and went to the Columbia River Gorge - my favorite place to go hiking! We didn't have much time to go on any long hikes but just enough to hike to the top of the bridge as picture below. This is Multnomah Falls.

Home Decor Favorites for July 2017

Top Row: Iced Drink Dispenser || Berries and Blossoms serving platter  (great for outdoors as it is melamine) || black and white dalmation pillow

Middle Row: Zoku Slush and Shake maker  || Beach towel || Berries and Blossoms dinner plates (also for outside)

This month I am inspired by the outdoors! Iced drink dispensers for BBQs... 
Serving platters and dinner plates made of melamine so they won't break outside! 

I also LOVE the Juliska goblet... can you believe it is plastic?? I can't!

We use a similar BBQ wok for cooking veggies on the grill.

Oh, and let's talk about the Zoku Slush and Shake maker.   It is AMAZING and makes the best root beer floats EVER. They also have a nice quick pop maker so you can make your own frozen pops and  also mini fish pops that I am sure your kids would love!
