So, Father’s Day is a little over a week away. Eek! Between graduations and everything else we’ve had going on around here, it kind of snuck up on me.

Gift Ideas for Dad #GreatestDad

Fortunately, it’s Best Buy to the rescue again. They have gifts for those who like tech, guys who like to entertain – everyone on your list.  One of my favorite gift suggestions for the Gizmo Guru is the new Amazon Fire TV.  It has built-in WiFi and lets you connect to things like Hulu, Pandora, and Netlfix, while also letting you play games like Minecraft-Pocket Edition.  A seriously cool toy for under $100!

Many of us made fitness goals for the year.  As January rolls to a frigid end, it’s a good time to do a quick check-in on how those resolutions are coming.  While it’s only been a little over three weeks, evaluating your plans now gives you the chance to make the changes necessary to get back on track if you’ve slipped a little.

Another week of Nutrisystem down, and another pound down to match! Nutrisystem Success I love that I continue to see the scale inch it’s way down each week.  While I wish it was taking the stairs two at a time, I do know that what took 9 months to put on won’t come come off in 9 days, and I’m still very pleased with my success.

Our theme for the second week of Pin Me! Thursdays is New Year’s Resolutions.  Yesterday I shared my 2012 goals with you; today I’ll share some pins that expand on those goals.


I will be incorporating this arms & ab workout (plus some others).


I will learn how to make these bracelets (and send a care package of them to A1 at college).

Cake Decorating!

I will attempt to do something similar to this for Baby C.’s 1st birthday (or practice enough so that I can for next year).


I’ll be doing something very similar to this (keep an eye out for my post about it).

What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
