Spring Vehicle Maintenance and Cleaning

Now that Winter is officially over, well at least I think anyways, it is time to get my vehicle tuned up. The potholes are horrible this Spring from the horrible cold winter. I am not sure I have ever seen them as bad as this when I drive around town. I swear my truck has seen some damage to the suspension and the rotors could use replacing as well.

So my Spring clean up responsibilities are to the vehicles in the family. Why should the house be the only priority? I spend a lot of time in my truck and my wife and kids also spend a lot of time in their cars. We all give our vehicles a thorough cleaning and we make it a team effort. Someone does the windows, some one wipes down surfaces, someone does the tires and washes the car. I check tire pressure and fluid levels, I also change the oil. It is fun to teach my kids about the responsibilities in owning a car and we get an afternoon to bond outside in the sun. Who says Spring cleaning has to be a chore?

The Wolf of Wall Street is Worth Checking Out

wolfI am loving all of the great movies that have come out lately. Last night, we wanted to lay low and relax, so we decided to stop at a Redbox location, pick up a movie, and grabbed some ice cream before heading home. I love going out and doing things but sometimes nothing beats a night of staying in and just relaxing!

We decided to rent “Wolf of Wall Street” and ended up really liking it. The description of the movie from Redbox.com is as follows:

“This is the true story of the outlandish rise and non-stop pleasure-hunting descent of Jordan Belfort, the New York stockbroker who, along with his merry band of brokers, makes a gargantuan fortune by defrauding investors out of millions. Belfort transforms from a righteous young Wall Street newcomer to a thoroughly corrupted stock-pumper and IPO cowboy. Having quickly amassed an absurd fortune, Jordan pumps it back into an endless array of aphrodisiacs: women, Quaaludes, coke, cars, his supermodel wife and a legendary life of aspiration and acquisition without limits. But even as Belfort’s company, Stratton Oakmont, soars sky-high into extremes of hedonistic gratification, the SEC and the FBI are zeroing in on his empire of excess.”

Body Treatments for Him

Hey Guys, have you ever had a body treatment? I know it is usually the ladies that get these but there are a lot of self conscious men out there who may benefit from Body Treatments Huntington Beach. Body treatments are not just for the ladies. If you are trying to get ready for a special occasion, maybe your wedding, class reunion, family reunion, or a vacation a body treatment can give you that little boost. Nothing replaces a healthy diet and regular exercise but if you want a jump start a body treatment can give you that motivation and a kick start.

When searching try a spa review site and look for one with high ratings in your area, http://www.spafinder.com/ is a great one. Also it doesn’t hurt to ask your friends, both guys and probably have some great input.

I’m Doing Him a Favor and Organizing His Entryway

shoesI frequently go over to my boyfriend’s house and help him out with cleaning and organizing. He really appreciates it because he’s so busy with his job during the spring and summer season.

Last week, I decided to make the entryway my project. It’s the first room you see when you walk into the house and I feel that a good impression should be made when first arriving.

I picked up an entryway bench at Target with some cute wicker baskets and throw pillows. I also hopped online and ordered this shoe rack to put in the closet to organize the shoes. I think that these items with a fresh coat of paint will make a huge difference!

 

A Voodoo Tactical Backpack To Make Life Easier

voodoo-tactical-matrix-assault-pack-1My husband goes on a bunch of missions where he sometimes has to stay a night or two. He is always complaining about the bags he has to bring along. He has a lot of different things he needs to bring with other than just clothes, so he is always just digging around in his bag for his things when he needs to get to them fast. I thought it would be a good idea to get him this Voodoo Tactical backpack. He loves camo print, so I was excited to find they had it in that print. He was so excited about it when he first saw it, but not even close to how excited he was about it when he first got to use it. He kept telling me how perfect it was and how much easier his missions are going to be just because of his new backpack.
