I hope your day is a great one. Today I’m sharing some things about my Dad and Andrew along with an awesome gift idea for Father’s Day!
I have a discount for you at the end of the post. Today is sponsored by Dollar Shave Club!
Father’s Day is almost here (6/16!). I can’t wait to celebrate the awesome men that I have in my life. I felt pretty lucky back in my dating Andrew days to be able to see what kind of dad he was from the very beginning. The first time I saw Andrew with Knox my heart melted and between that and how kind he was to Brooke starting from the very beginning, I was sold. Skye walks around saying, “dada dada dada” whenever Andrew is at work so it’s safe to say, she can’t get enough of him either.
Andrew plays with them, prays for them, teaches them, makes them hyper right before bed, tickles them, works with them, cuddles them and spoils them;). These three (and Beretta) are incredibly lucky to have him as their dad/dada (<— Brooke chose to call Andrew dada).
My dad is something else. His smile lights up the room, he is a genius, he cares for each one of us so deeply and is the most selfless person out there. I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite memories with my dad.
*During my training for the 2015 St. George Marathon I didn’t have anyone to do my long runs with. I had to start most Saturday’s at 4:30 a.m. My dad asked me if he could join me for my long runs. Ummm yes. He would drive in his jeep around town following me for 20 miles. He would hand me my gatorade and cheer me on. Those runs were so special to me and it meant the world to have his support there. He has always been so supportive of my running!
*My Dad and I used to walk to the movie theater to go see a movie when I was a teenager. We would walk to the theater a few miles away, watch the movie and then my mom would pick us up after.
*3 afternoons a week you would find me and my dad at the kitchen counter doing calculus together… he is the best math teacher ever and got me through that year.
*My Dad drove 100 hours with me and 10 of those hours were in reverse. My dad really wanted his five kids to be safe drivers so he dedicated 100 hours of his time (each minute was filled out on our charts;) to teaching us how to drive. We had so many great conversations during those hours. I might be the world’s best driver in reverse thanks to him.
*Living at home again when Brooke was just a baby. My parents were my rock. I have so many memories from that time living with them and learning from them.
PS these are pictures of us from daddy-daughter dates!
These men that support and love us and all of the people around them are really special. I can’t wait to celebrate them next Sunday.
I have an awesome gift idea for you (that I gave to my dad and to Andrew a bit ago so they could test it out and ps they loved it!) that is perfect for the men in your life.

Dollar Shave Club offers everything that you could need (for men and for women) to help you feel, look and smell your best. They have shower products, oral care products along with all of their shaving products.
Everything from Dollar Shave Club is super high quality and it ships right to your house. My Dad and Andrew gave two thumbs up to the Ultimate Shave Starter Set. This set is only FIVE DOLLARS right now… do not miss out on that. It comes with the Executive Razor and 3 1 oz tubes of their Dr. Carver’s Shaving Products.
With this kit you start with the Prep Scrub which is awesome at exfoliating dead skin cells and helps release/prevent ingrown hairs. The next product they used is the transparent Shave Butter which will soften hairs to fight razor bumps. The last product is their Post Shave Dew which is all about providing hydration and relieves on contact. They absolutely loved the shaving products, the smells and the super high-quality razor.
