Father’s Day Gifts

Lucky for me, my hubs doesn’t read the blog so I can blog about his Father’s Day gifts.

Every year with him it’s a challenge to find something he’ll like. He’s a beer drinking, guitar playing, mountain climber. Some years it’s a gift card from REI or Amazon, custom guitar picks, extra.

This year I am going with the beer idea. He never really wanted a brew your own beer kit, although I bring it up all the time. It seems he is more interested in having his beer without any work. So, He’s getting a beer-stein, a beer bottle opener, and the new fast cooling, Chillsner. You can find it at

(And, I know what it looks like, but this is a FAMILY blog!!!) What is super cool about the Chillsner, it has a whole in it, so you leave it in the beer and drink through it. I am ever hopeful this will be a hit with the hubs.

I am currently working hard to convince the kiddos to make “coupons” for dad to put inside the beer mug. Dad loves kid massages. Cinco is resisting this idea…it may come down to bribery.

I am also thinking if the kiddos will not do coupons, maybe we can make cards that describe what they like best about dad! I am not giving up yet!

There is also always the tie!

And, Cinco decided this weekend to a John Wayne movie. Not sure if the movie is for Dad or Cinco?

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Blogging

Many of you who know me, know I have been threatening to start a blog for YEARS…  A lot of YEARS.   Now, now I’ve really done it!  So get ready for all my crazy rants, mom-tastic schemes and random thoughts.   It’s just another outlet for my special brand of well-intentioned disasters!
