Father's Day: golf gift

My sweet & beautiful blog pal Megan has a cool blogger roundup of Father's Day gift ideas & I'm stoked to be one of the contributors!  Take a gander at the inspiring gift guide; it's so good.  Thanks for inviting me to be a part of it, gal!

Clearly I'm having a tough time blogging.  

Perhaps it's these glorious warmer, longer days that have beckoned me away from my computer.  Who am I kidding, like I blogged regularly ever.  Busier people than myself manage to churn out consistent blog posts.  I can explain, really -- hey look behind you! ::runs out of room::

Quinn & I decided to surprise Daddy early for Father's Day since his gift might require some planning in advance on his part.  He's an outdoor enthusiast.  Any gift that relates to hiking, climbing, surfing, skateboarding, mountain biking, kayaking, snowboarding, fly-fishing, camping, golfing etc. would make him happy.*  This Father's Day we gifted him a day of golfing fun.  Over the past couple of years, finding the time to golf has been a challenge for him.....we wanted to give him a day of: sleeping in, playing 18 holes of golf, hanging with his buddies (no early curfew ha!).  

Titleist did not sponsor this post :-D
I was inspired by this super fun DIY.  So Quinn & I presented him with a bucket of new golf balls & a makeshift scorecard alluding to his gift (instead of a gift certificate since he already has a membership but that would be a fun option, too).  Scribbled with a scorecard pencil, of course.  

I used leftover felt scraps & only had enough to go around the front of the thrift store basket/bucket, oh well.
Quinn calls him Daddy; I call him Dude.  I found a PDF of the scorecard for our local course & printed that, mounted it to cardstock, then attached it to a golf tee with hot glue. 
He also got shiny new balls.  Refraining from ball jokes out of respect for my mother-in-law who does not need any mental images of her son & balls.  I've already said too much.....  
He loved it.  Probably even more so because he'll get a break from us crazy gals for a whole day.  (For the record, he gets plenty of breaks from us ;-)

Knowing me, I probably won't blog again until after Father's Day so......
Happy Father's Day to all of the father figures out there!  Including all of the family members & friends who fill in for dads.  
Thank you for all that you do!!


*I'm outdoorsy, too.  I love drinking outside on patios.
