Happy Father’s Day From Lugz #Review #Giveaway


With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift to give Dad than a fresh pair of kicks.  Dad’s always seem to put themselves last and their shoe game is ‘lacking’ to put it politely.  Lugz has lots of new arrivals with tons of styles for every man, so no matter what dad’s style is, you can find the pair that are just right for him.  I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Lugz, so it should come as no surprise I’ve chosen a fashionable pair of their sneakers for my husband to sport around town.


The Strife sneaker is all new from Lugz and it has quickly become one of my favorite men’s styles they offer.  These sneakers may be casual, but they sure do take an outfit from good to great in a matter of a few seconds.  You’ll be noticed in these Lugz and everyone will want to know where you got them.

True to Lugz fashion, my husband says these sneakers in incredibly comfortable.  He’s on his feet all day in steel-toe work boots so when it’s time to go out, he doesn’t want to wear uncomfortable shoes.  Lugz always have a comfortable fit which is great to be able to rely on.  The padded tongue and collar allow for extra comfort while the cotton lining offers extra softness for tired feet.


  • Ripstop canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Padded tongue and collar

Vivitar…Helping Make Father’s Day Gifting A Little Bit Easier


Wither Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t think of a better time to introduce you all to the Vivitar DVR 786HD ActionCam.  Vivitar is a name I’m sure we all know and love by now, they’ve been around since 1960 helping make some of the best equipment affordable for everyday people like you and I.  Thanks to Vivitar, top tech toys are much more attainable, so go ahead and spoil Dad this Father’s Day…he deserves it!


My husband has been wanting an action camera for a while now and the Vivitar camera just seemed to have everything we were looking for.  Great quality, great durability, and all at a price we can afford on a budget that supports three children.  The DVR 786HD comes with a bike/ATV mount as well as a remote shutter button that you wear like a watch to help you capture every little moment.  We took a family camping trip to the lake this past weekend and couldn’t wait to try out the DVR 786HD to help capture some of our most important memories.  With 12.1 megapixel pictures and 1080p HD video you’ll be able to look back at all of the fun in full detail.


The photos that the DVR 786HD captures are 12.1 megapixels so you have a really decent quality photo in a really small device.  This camera came in so handy on our little mini vacation!  The lightweight and compact design allows you to move freely and doesn’t have any negative effect on the activities that you’re out and about enjoying.  I think the pictures came out really well and showcase just how beautiful it was in Princess Cove at Lake Mohave.


The underwater shots came out so good!  The waterproof case didn’t affect our picture quality and kept the camera safe so we could just enjoy having a great time.  We even got some really great video of the fishes swimming past as we enjoyed the beautiful waters of the lake.  The kids can’t wait to go back and snorkel through the caves with the Vivitar DVR 786HD.

This Father’s Day, give Dad a gift he’ll love and use all the time…give him a Vivitar!

Delicious Grass-Fed Beef Delivered To Your Door From 2XL Premium Angus


Have any of you guys noticed that beef just doesn’t taste the same as it used to?  I miss the way burgers, steaks, roasts, and ground beef used to taste.  I remember some of the most mouth-watering beef dishes as a child but unfortunately as an adult I don’t eat much of it any more.  I set out on a mission to find out what about beef changed, and where I could get the taste of the good ol’ beef that I remember.  I came across 2XL Premium Angus and was pretty hopeful after researching their grass-fed beef.


2XL has a raises registered Angus cattle on their ranch in southern Iowa and mails some of the best beef you’ll ever taste straight to your door.  I received a variety of different meats to try out and I have to tell you, I couldn’t wait to get cooking!


I can’t even begin to imagine when the last time I had great ground beef was.  I was eager to try out the 2XL Grass-Fed Ground Beef and 2XL Grass-Fed Ground Beef Patties.

The Grass-Fed Ground Beef comes in a 1 lb (16 oz) package that keeps the meat super fresh, it’s very well sealed.  This ground beef is typically 80% lean without anything extra added to it.  No added fats, fillers, or water.  I made the most amazing tacos with this ground beef and the kids couldn’t get enough of it.  Right away they tasted the difference from our typical ground beef and asked me where I got the ‘amazing meat’ from.

The Grass-Fed Ground Beef Patties are made from the same great ground beef my family and I fell in love with when I made those delicious tacos.  You’ll get a 1 lb (16 oz) package containing 3 – 5.3 oz burger patties that you just won’t be able to resist.  I haven’t had a hamburger that tasty in about 30 years and I can’t wait to buy some more of these patties of amazingness.


Who doesn’t love a great steak, right?  2XL truly delivered with some of the best steak I have ever had in my life.  The marbling is beautiful and the fat to meat ratio is perfect.

My husband and I decided to each try a steak, he tried the Grass-Fed Ribeye Steak.  This is a great cut of meat that really showcases the flavor profile of 2XL’s grass-fed beef.  It is hand cut and trimmed from the center of the prime rib roast, is highly marbled, and is oh-so tender.  No marinade needed!

I tried the Grass-Fed New York Strip Steak and it was AMAZING!  These NY strip steaks are aged in a way that optimizes flavor and tenderness, and are hand carved by 2XL’s expert butcher from the center of the loin.  This steak was juicy, tender, incredibly flavorful, and quite filling!  I could only eat half in one sitting but I had a delicious lunch the next day with the leftover.


Last, but certainly not least, I also tried out the Grass-Fed Natural Smoked Pepper Beef Sticks.  The meat sticks out on the market today really leave a lot to be desired but 2XL delivered once again.  These beef sticks are made using the same registered Angus cattle all of their other products are made with.  You’ll be surprised how just a few ingredients combine to make this tasty treat the whole family will love.

With Father’s Day just around the corner I can’t think of a better gift to give the meat-loving men out there.  Whether you buy just a few cuts of meat or the Griller’s Butcher Box, you can’t go wrong with 2XL Premium Angus.

Father’s Day Gifts Dad Will Love From RYOBI


Whether Dad is an at home DIY kind-of guy or uses power tools every day, they want tools they can count on again and again.  RYOBI’s 18V ONE+ system has more than 70 tools that work with the same powerful battery to give Dad the ultimate selection to get the job finished…no matter how big or small.  The RYOBI LITHIUM+ batteries help you get more done in less time for one system that delivers it all.  Finding the entire selection is easy…you can find RYOBI exclusively at the Home Depot, both in store and online.


The RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Super Combo Kit is the perfect gift for dad this Father’s Day!  The Super Combo Kit comes with 4 tools, 2 batteries, a battery charger, and a cool RYOBI bag to carry it all in.  This week my husband has been testing out his new Super Combo Kit and typical to RYOBI fashion, it absolutely surpassed expectations.

In the line of work that my husband does, he needs tools that he can rely on time and time again with no room for error.  It takes a lot to move a house (literally) and RYOBI is the only brand of tool my husband counts on to take the abuse he can throw at it, and then some.  Whether it’s splitting apart the manufactured homes, transporting them, setting them back up or running the utilities to them…RYOBI is there to help my husband and make his life just a little bit easier.


The RYOBI 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill is perfect for all size jobs, big or small.  The pressure sensitive trigger reacts quickly allowing you to control the power for the perfect finish every time.

Compact Drill Features:

  • 1/2 in. single-sleeve, keyless chuck with automatic spindle lock for easy bit changes
  • 24 position clutch and 2-speed gear box to match your drilling and driving needs
  • MagTray magnetic holder for convenient placement of screws and bits
  • On-board bit storage for convenience
  • Top-mounted bubble level for drilling and driving accuracy
  • GripZone overmold for optimum grip and user comfort


The circular saw is another versatile tool that will help you complete whatever task you want it to.  Lightweight yet powerful for perfect results with perfect user comfort.

  • Front pommel handle for 2-handed operation
  • Left side blade for better cut line visibility
  • 5 1/2 in. carbide-tipped blade for longer blade life
  • GripZone overmold for optimum grip and user comfort


RYOBI thought of everything when they made this reciprocating saw.  When it’s time to run the utilities to the homes he’s installed, my husband is using the reciprocating saw quite a bit.  The Anti-Vibe technology is genius in helping reduce fatigue with prolonged use.

Reciprocating Saw Features:

  • Toolless blade clamp for quick and easy blade changes
  • Ergonomically designed for better balance
  • Variable speed for cutting all material types


Whenever you’re in need of a dependable light source, RYOBI has got you covered there too.  The Area Light sure did come in handy this week!  I live in a very rural area, and there’s 5 miles of dirt roads (filled with rocks) between my home and the main highway.  Sometimes we’re just lucky enough (I say sarcastically) that a jagged bit of rock punctures our tires.  When my husband was getting ready to leave for work, bright and early before the sun is even up, he discovered we had been so lucky to encounter a jagged rock.  Thanks to the RYOBI Area Light, my husband was able to light the area to patch the tire and fill it with air to get to work safely.

Area Light Features:

  • Multi-functional design capable of sitting flat on the battery, one end, or hanging for ultimate lighting versatility
  • Rotating head directs light where needed

The RYOBI Super Combo Kit makes a great gift for any Dad, but make sure you check out all that RYOBI has to offer so you can find the gift that’s just right for all of the dads on your list this Father’s Day!
