Holiday Hostess Gifts

Posted on

I could know for weeks in advance that we’re headed to a party and I’ll think “Oh, I’m going to bring a totally amazing hostess gift to this party!” Next thing I know the babysitter is showing up in 3 minutes, the kids are going crazy, I have one leg in a pair of pants and my hair in a towel and yes, that’s when I remember I never got around to getting that most awesome of hostess gifts. The reason I don’t ever have that gift is because I can never think of what to bring and I keep thinking I’ll figure it out before the party. I never do. #totalguestfail But.. that is not going to happen this holiday season! I resolve not to be the lame guest. The calendar is starting to book up with holiday parties and I pinky swear I will not be caught with my pants …

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Posted on

So have you bought anything for the dads in your life yet? If you have then I totally don’t comprehend because it only just dawned on me that Sunday is actually Father’s Day. If you are a fellow procrastinator and are wondering what the hell you are going to give as a present here are my suggestions. 1.  Classic Vacuum Pint Glass An insulated beer glass that’ll keep your drink cold for 4.5 hours? Hell yeah! I think my hubby would be very happy with this one. Oh and that built in bottle opener is an added benie. 2.  Chunkyfunky Peanutbutter Cup My hubby’s favorite naughty food is peanutbutter cups. This stuff is like peanutbutter cups on steroids. This will put every bit of candy or popcorn he’s ever had to shame. 3.  Blackberry Farms Charcuterie Duo His other favorite food is meat. Good meat and I think this charcuterie …

Mid-week musings {May}

Posted on

Obviously Erin and I are rocking the blog posting this week. It’s that last week of school thing and there’s so many extra activities (like running around buying all those teacher gifts and field day and everything else) that blogging time this week is scarce. In keeping with that line of thought today’s post is just a quickie. 1. Sometimes something hits you just right. For me that happened about a six weeks ago. I was in spin class and the instructor said she was so excited U2 was coming to Denver! That is until she saw the price of the tickets. According to Meredith, Bono was going to have to do a whole lot more than just sing if she was going to pay $300 for a ticket. As I was sitting on that bike seat trying not to die I decided she would go to that concert! I am …

Tricia’s Christmas Wish List

Posted on

Today’s wish list is all about me because isn’t that what Christmas is really about? Getting stuff for yourself on sale or conniving your husband to buy you those things that you can’t really justify buying for yourself? Here’s what’s on my wish list for this Christmas. I’m going for the mostly realistic & leaving the 3 carat diamond ring and the $2500 camera lens that I really want off the list. 1. Athleta Saturday Sweater While we’re on the keeping it real track let’s just say most days my wardrobe is about schlepping around the house in my workout clothes or if I’m feeling particularly fancy, a pair of jeans. This would be the perfect presentable to the world yet still just right for schlepping sweater. $228   2. Geneva Down Jacket Is there anything better than a great feather weight down jacket when you live in a cold climate? I do …
