Father's Day Finds & wish us luck!

With Father's Day coming up Sunday I thought I'd post a few thingsb I've found for the dad's in our lives.

This shave cream from Billy Jealousy won best shave cream in Esquire magazine. I know I love it on days when Greg shaves! Although he's not a dad yet, I will be adding this to my list for his birthday in August!

A good "rugged" gift, but still keeping wood surfaces and counters in tip top shape are these rustic wood coasters and trivets from Boards By Joel .

You can never go wrong with some good grilling items, I think it's genetically predisposed that men love to grill, so here are a few things to make dinner a little more fun.

This LED grill light from ChefTools was on my list, most of the grilling gets done at dusk (or later) so this little light that cips onto any surface makes sure the meat is done to your liking.

These amazing grilling planks from aFire Grilling Products come in a variety of sizes and "flavors" so you can put your meat on them and the flavors will smoke through on the grill. These are going on our list for our dad's for sure!

And the last grill item that I might have to buy for ME, I can't resist, are these Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers from Williams Sonoma. I think this is a great idea and would be much easier to marinate things. Plus, they don't have sharp pointy ends that kids (okay, my sister and I) can use to swordfight in the kitchen. You laugh, but it's happened... :) Love you Kath!

So hopefully you have found something you haven't seen before for the men in your lives.

We will be grilling out at my parents tomorrow night, with one of these gifts in tow.

But first, we have to get through our FIRST Triathlon! If you look back to one of my very early posts I mentioned it, not sure how to link to it-still learning. Greg's swim starts at 5:45 a.m. and mine at 6:10, so think of us tomorrow and send good vibes our way, I'll report back on Monday!

Happy Weekend and a big THANKS to all the GREAT Dad's in our lives. All of your sports coaching, good stories, fishing tips and studying advice, love and encouragement have served me well over the years. I couldn't have picked a better Dad.
