You would think it’s easier to shop for men. They’re supposedly more laid back and less complex. And yet, every year, I struggle to find the perfect holiday gift for my husband, Scott. Sometimes, we’ll joke around and I’ll remind him how easy it is to shop for me! “I would love anything from Nordstrom, Loft, Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Lagos, etc.” But, Scott is super picky and prefers to buy things himself. Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of research on unique men’s gift ideas. I discovered a bunch of things that have more originality. As of today, Scott does not own anything, on this list. But, I think he’d love anything that falls into his category. Therefore, I’m calling this The Ultimate Men’s Gift Guide. Because if Scott would love it, I’m sure your man will, too!
Scott and I just got home from a long weekend in Las Vegas. He surprised me with Celine Dion tickets, for my birthday. (Back in September.) I was a little concerned that it would be too much to travel to Las Vegas for a concert. Neither one of us wanted to spend too much money or run out of time to get our money’s worth. So, we agreed on the highlights we both wanted to see and do, and took it from there. Best of all? We did not break the bank. So, before you head out to Vegas for a long weekend, have a look to see how we spent our 72 hours!
Scott and I are going to Vegas for a long weekend. His parents and Megan are staying at the house to watch Baby Blue and Cooper. I’m going to miss them, but I am so excited to have this time with Scott! He surprised me with tickets to see Celine Dion on my birthday. I’ve been wanting to see her perform in Vegas, for years!
As the saying goes, summer deserves a speeding ticket! It surely does fly by, fast. I had been longing to get to the beach with Baby Blue since Memorial Day. But, it wasn’t until late August before Blue’s tiny toes hit the sand. Scott and I took Baby Blue to Wildwood Crest~New Jersey, with friends for a mini 2-night stay. Last week, we celebrated my birthday with a five day stay in Avalon, NJ. This was our official end-of-summer vacation with Baby Blue. And, it was well worth the wait!
Ok, so I may not be considered a Pro at traveling. But, I do know how to travel like one. Some may say I go overboard, because I do a LOT of planning, and I try to think of everything. Of course, it’s easier to travel like a pro without a baby or toddler (let alone several) in tote! But, it can be done, as well. In this blog post, I’m going to provide some tips on How to Travel Like a Pro, along with how to do so with a toddler in tote!
Father’s Day is very special to me. I’m fortunate to have a dad that is (and always was) extraordinary, in every way! BUT…like most men, he’s not easy to shop for. So, I scoured the internet and found a bunch of ideas for this Father’s Day Gift Guide! One thing I believe most dads have in common is this: They don’t expect an expensive gift. So, most of these items are under $50 OR on sale!
