Merino wool is not traditional wool. It’s much softer and lighter. It has amazing qualities such as being all-natural, moisture-wicking (perfect for people with sweaty feet like me), antimicrobial, and breathable.
Have you ever been clicking around on the Internet and accidentally stumbled across an amazing website? That happened to me recently, and I thought to myself, “Jackpot!”
The website, www.Vat19.com, sells all kinds of weirdly awesome gifts you would never find anywhere else. You have to check out for yourself the unique gifts, food, toys, home decor, clothing, and gifts they sell.
If you’re looking for weird or awesome gifts for children and adults, Vat19.com has something you’ll think is perfect.
The website sells the Human Slingshot which turns human bodies into bouncing pinballs inside a giant stretchable band. Not crazy or wild enough for your needs? How about the “What’s That Smell? Party Game” that includes scents of toe cheese, diaper blowout, B.O., and hot chunky vomit. I dare you to play that game!
They even have prank gifts like the “Prank Thank You Card” that plays music that can’t be turned off. The music plays on for 3 or more hours until the battery dies. For a tricky twist, if the person tries to rip up the card to get to the battery to make the music stop, a hidden glitter bomb inside the card will explode in their face.
The Stank Prank Candle also has a tricky twist. It starts off with a wonderful scent of sweet apples and then a few hours later it smells like farts.
It’s rare to come across something that you’ve never seen before or experienced anything like it. The Buddha Board Enso definitely caught my eye!
Imagine drawing, painting and writing on a board with a water brush and creating images with a rich, inky Japanese look. As the water slowly evaporates, your art will magically disappear allowing you to create a whole new masterpiece.
My BFF, Linda, and I met in 1976 and are complete opposites. She is quiet. I’m loud. She loves to read. I love to dance. She enjoys museums. I enjoy snow skiing. Get the picture?
I had two problems. I wanted to be able to digitize my notes, and I wanted to stop killing trees. I needed a solution.
I’m a person who takes a lot of handwritten notes. I prefer to hand write things because my brain is able to retain the information better. Anyone else like me in that way?
I was speaking at a conference out of state when another speaker shared the perfect solution–The Rocketbook.
Smart, Reusable Notebook
The Rocketbook is a spiral notebook with reusable pages that can be completely erased with a few swipes of a damp cloth. It’s like magic!
It’s also a smart notebook because with the Rocketbook app, you can take a photo (scanning it) of your notes and immediately send it to a specified online folder located on your Google Drive, iCloud, Dropbox, etc. Or you can email it to yourself.
If you send it to Evernote, it makes your notes searchable!
There’s nothing like going to visit Mimi and Papi!
When I tell my kids I’m taking them to their grandparents house, they whoop and jump around as if I’ve just told them I’m taking them to Disney World.
Grandchildren have a special bond with grandparents that is unique from the parent/child relationship.
My two young boys are lucky to be growing up with their Mimi and Papi living only two miles away. Since the day each of my sons were born, their grandparents have been a huge part of their lives.
They are there for the big moments–holidays, birthday parties, and soccer games. As well as the small moments–learning a new game, trying a new food, or kissing a boo boo to make it feel better.
I know one day my sons will look back on their childhood and realize how much their grandparents influenced the men they became.
Capturing Precious Memories of Grandparents With Grandchildren
As uncomfortable as it is to say… grandparents won’t be around forever. Before time slips away from us, I wanted to capture this moment in their lives so my husband and I gave his parents the gift of a Grandparents & Grandchildren Photo Session.
Mimi, Papi, and my two sons had a photo shoot just for them!
Look at these precious moments so artfully captured! We will treasure these keepsakes forever.
