Lemon Blueberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there.  I'm blessed to have such an awesome one! :)  Love you dad!

This is actually not what I made my dad for father's day, but they're still yummy and I've been meaning to put this recipe up!  They're delicious muffins and fairly healthy for you!

I surprised my dad with one of his mother's old coffee cake recipes and he loved it.  I'll post the recipe soon!

I also made him this card:

He loves McDonalds.  He goes there to get coffee at least twice a day!

How are you all celebrating Father's Day?
