My Dad is Going to Love This Keurig We Got Him for His Birthday!

blog-keurigMy dad has really gotten into coffee in the past few years. He used to never be interested until one day we were out and about and I stopped at Starbucks for my favorite Caramel Macchiato beverage. He decided to try it and was hooked!

This year for his birthday, we decided to get my dad a Keurig brewing system. I have one and I absolutely love it! I use it every morning and it saves me a lot of money because I don’t stop at a commercial coffee place every morning anymore. We are also going to get him a carousel to put on the counter next to the brewing machine to hold the k-cups.

I can’t wait for him to open his present!

Golf.com Has it All

golfMy guy LOVES to golf. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that we met on a golf course. With our super busy schedules, we don’t get a lot of time to kick back, relax, and get out on the course.

 

I found a website for all things golf-related. It’s called Golf.com and it has golf news, instruction, equipment (and equipment reviews which is super helpful with all that is out there), courses and travel opportunities, and leaderboards for pro golfers.

This is a site that my guy always goes to. I wanted to share in case I had some readers that were fans of golf as well. Whether you play for fun, or are pretty competitive about it, check it out!

The Key to Shopping with Men, Lure them with Beer, Motors, and Elevator Service

So I am a woman blogging on this Men’s shopping bag blog today to let you know when you want to get your man to go shopping with you give him an incentive to do so. Guys love girls, they love motors, they love beer, they love sandwiches. If you can convince  your guy that he will be getting a few of those things on a shopping trip, he will go, and a little promise of a reward after shopping will seal the deal.

I recently had to do some shopping for a couple weddings I needed to attend and I did not want to go alone. I came up with a plan my guy could not resist, I told him that the Elevator Service company just installed the fastest elevator from the first floor to the fifth floor at our mall, I also threw something in about the new great sandwich shop I went to but along the way I was having to duck by the remote control airplane and helicopter display and it was “so annoying”. He bought it hook line and sinker, BAM I had a shopping partner for the day and we had one heck of a time. Let’s just say I got what I wanted and so did he.

GoPlate

I wish I would have come up with these a long time ago. Who knew such a simple item would be so useful? For barbeques, pot lucks or just grilling at home we get there grab a beverage and get in line to eat! But most times it is a casual get together and there may not be access to sit at a table. Your hands are full and that food is making your mouth water. It sounds ridiculous but I have been in that situation more than once and only wish I would have been so creative as to think of this quick solution.

This GoPlate is meant for to fit around a glass, bottle or can you have your hands free for the delicousiness. That is what parties are all about right? Access to the brooskies and yummy food? Get this for only $19.00.

Grilling Accessories

This is such a handy little grill light. We found it while shopping around for some pool accessories and my husband wanted to try it out. We grill outdoors six out of seven days a week, and on the weekends eating is never on schedule. We have late night parties between us and our kids, and people get hungry at night. You would be amazed at how much people will eat at midnight after swimming the whole day.

The light can pivot around the grill, and you can actually see what you are cooking and to see what needs more time and what is done. You can mount the light right on to your grill and it’s really easy to use. If you know a man that loves to grill, this is a great gift to give. It really does come in handy late at night or even just a closer look at what you are grilling. My husband loves it and uses it all the time now.
