Successful Father's Day Gifts #SterlingChoice

NOTE: Affiliate links included in some posts. 

It's always a special time when we stop and celebrate our dads. He's the one who taught me how beautiful I was. He's the first man I loved with my whole heart. He taught me all about football and basketball and golf and tennis and any other sport that came on tv that involved a ball. He was the first man to think I was funny . . . and smart . . . and lovable.

But sometimes it seems that finding the right Father's Day gift is such a challenge. For the most part, they can buy what they want for themselves and so finding something special, let alone meaningful, can be extremely difficult.

Considering that I wanted to share a couple of successful Father's Day gifts I have come across . . .

#1 - Induct Your Dad to the Superman Hall of Heroes

You can choose from a variety of packages that reward your dad (or any other man in your life) for being your hero. Is there someone who has made an impact on your life or the life of others? This is the perfect way to honor them.

Inspired by Superman and his unwavering morals and endless pursuit of truth and justice, the Superman Hall of Heroes offers a way to pay tribute to real life people by submitting a photo and their story.

Depending on your commitment level, you can also send a gift package to the one you are celebrating. The gift package we gave contained the Superman t-shirt, a hat, a coffee tumbler, and a water bottle in addition to the official documents and box. The Superman-themed items were a huge hit, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

#2 - NEW British Sterling Men's Colognes: Private Stock and Reserve

British Sterling was originally one of the top 10 colognes of the 1970's. It's making a resurgence now with two new scents that are in the same league with current trendy scents for men.

British Sterling Reserve comes in a dashing black and silver bottle. It has a spicy, manly scent that is very sensual.

British Sterling Private Stock comes in a silver and white bottle that is very clean and sharp looking.  Crisp scents of cypress and cedar highlighted by lime and juniper make this scent invigorating. The background of amber and incense deepen the intensity.

I gave a bottle to each of the men in the house and they loved them . . . and, between you and me, they're both hard to please so this is quite a success.

Keep watching because there is a giveaway coming for a bottle of each of these scents later this week!

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
