Umbro Soccer Shin Socks {A lifesaver}

Will has been playing soccer for many years and I always dreaded getting him ready.  Trying to get his socks and shin guards on was never an easy task and I often ended up in a full sweat trying to get them on.  I just recently discovered the Umbro Soccer Shin Socks and these have made getting ready for soccer a breeze.  The best part is they are only $10 but exclusively available at Dick's Sporting goods in stores or online.  Will has played two games with them and they seem to work like a charm and he isn't fussing with them on the field like he did with his other shin guards.  I always like to pass on things that make life a little easier.

My Favorite Warm Winter Coat Northface Metropolis

It gets really cold in Michigan, and I don't do well with cold.  When I pick Will up from school we have to wait in the cold on the playground so a few years ago I bought a Northface Metropolis coat and it still continues to be my favorite warm coat.  I really didn't want to give into the Northface trend,  and  I didn't want to be running around town with the same coat as everyone else, but the coat is very warm.  This year I was in the market for another down coat and I tried a few different brands but came back to the Northface Metropolis again, this time I  got it in Graphite Grey.   I found the best price at Zappos HERE.  I highly recommend this jacket and it isn't bulky and won't make you look like a puffy marshmallow.

men of a certain age....

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I am a TV Junkie and the opportunity to review a new show is something I just can't pass up. men of a certain age also happens to have a few of my favorite actors in it, Ray Ramano and Scott Bakula and it also has Andre Braugher who is also fabulous. I think this show is going to be very funny and love that it isn't another female dominated drama, it is about three men and gives you a peek into what it is like being a guy and what it is like when hanging with the guys. The show uses humor to address serious issues, which is always a surefire combination. I personally found it entertaining and think many others will too! This will be one more show to load into your Tivo for men and women.

Be sure to check out men of a certain age on Monday December 7th, 10/9c

Music to my ears: Corneille Giveaway!!!

One thing for sure is that I love music! I love all types and especially artists that have a story behind their music. When I am working on filling my customer's orders I like to pop in a great CD and brew a perfect cup of tea, when these two things happen I am most productive.

I had the pleasure of receiving the new CD The Birth of Corneille. Corneille's music is soulful, smooth and easy to listen to. The lyrics get in your head and you can't get them out, which is fine by me since I really enjoyed the entire CD. Corneille is an artist that has withstood much tragedy yet took his grief and turned to music. Corneille's family members were killed in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994, and he alone escaped first to Kinshasa, and then to Germany, where he was taken in by some family friends. Here is a quote from the artist:

"Music has been the place where I could go to hide and forget about the world. I couldn't make sense of a majority of the things that happened to me, so I used music as a shield. But over time, music has become a vehicle to channel out everything that I've been keeping from myself for all these years. And the new album is definitely the most honest, real assessment of everything that's happened in my life, because I'm not trying to hide as much." Corneille

You can learn more about Corneille at Corneille music.
