The Avenger's Movie is a Huge Hit!

The Avengers is a movie that was released into theaters this past May. It was a huge hit movie this Spring and when we went to it in theaters, it was packed! It was a fantastic movie that we both loved. Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Tom Hiddleston all did a fantastic job acting in this movie. They truly made it great.

This action-packed movie made its way into stores this past week and I am picking it up for my man today. I have a couple of errands to run later, so I'm going to Wal-Mart because they have a deal where it is available in a DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack. We like those combo packs because we have a DVD player in our bedroom and a Blu Ray player in our living room. It makes it easy to have the opportunity to watch the movie in either room.

I'm going to set up a showing with popcorn and the whole works tonight! I can't wait!

Top of the Line Belt Driven Linear Actuators

My guy came home from work yesterday and just couldn't stop smiling! I thought he either had something up his sleeve or he had gotten a promotion or raise. Once we sat down to have supper together, I finally asked him what he was so darn excited about! What he answered was not what I expected to hear. 

He told me that they got some great new products at work. I've never seen him more happy! He's been pushing management to order some more line belt driven linear actuators and they finally gave in. They had some awhile ago from Specialty Motions, INC and he said he's never seen a better product. He said that these products are top of the line and that he can't wait for them to come in since they make his job SO much easier!

A Hat Rack for Storage

My guys loves to wear hats. I very rarely see him without one on. He has quite the collection going! I counted one day when I was cleaning out the closet and I figured out that he has 62 hats! Doesn't that seem a little ridiculous? If I had that many purses or shoes I would sure be getting talked to about it. He loves his hats so I don't mind. I can make my peace with the hats. The only problem I have, however, is the fact that they are always laying around on the shelves of our walk in closet. They take up so much unnecessary space!

I came across this fantastic product to solve our problems. It's a hanging hat rack that hangs on the rod that goes across the top of the closet. It holds up to forty hats (looks like I'll be getting two of them!) This will make the closet look so much cleaner. There will be so much more room for all of the rest of our things. I can't wait to have that space cleared out!

A Fold Out Ottoman With Another Purpose

Fold-Out Ottoman Bed <br>Hide a guest bed in plain sight! Ottoman by day...bed by night.

I love finding great products for a reasonable price. I especially love products for the home that serve dual purposes. That's why I feel like I really hit the jackpot with this fantastic product. It is an ottoman that serves another purpose: it unfolds into a single bed! This has the abilitiy to turn any room into a guest bedroom.

My man was looking for weeks for some new furniture to add to his "Man Cave". He and his buddies love spending time down there and I almost never see them! I don't mind one bit, I get a lot more things done around the house as well as more time with my gal pals. :)

This fold-out ottoman would transform easily into a bed if any of his guys friends ever needed to stay the night.

Drink Re-Warmer is a Great Product

The season is here for chilly weather, fall leaves, boots, leg warmers, leggings, and warm beverages. When the temperature drops low, there's no better way to warm up than with a nice cup of warm tea, hot apple cider, coffee, or hot chocolate. Nothing feels better than letting my insides heat up with a nice warm cup of my favorite beverage!

It's however, not so great when you are enjoying a nice warm beverage and realize that is has dropped temperature and is no longer tasty. I found this fantastic product that we use in our home and love. It is a coffee re-warmer. It can be used in a variety of beverages that need re-heating. Just stick in it your cooled down drink and it heats up instantly!

I'm getting one of these for my man for his desk at work. He is always drinking coffee and would get a lot of use out of this great product.

Twist Whisk Makes Baking Fun and Cleaning Easy

Most of you know that my man and I love preparing food together. Sometimes that involves grilling, sometimes cooking on the stovetop and sometimes we bake scrumptious treats in the oven. We are always looking for new recipes to try as well as some new and fun products that would go well in our kitchen and making food preparation easier and more fun. 

I came across this twist whisk online the other day and I just HAVE to order it. This is a silicone whisk for the kitchen that works great to mix ingredients together. We have a wire whisk and it is a pain in the neck to clean up! It is hard to clean in between the wires and it proves to be such a challenge. This twist whisk can be twisted into a flat position to make it easier to clean and store. 

I'll have to look up some delicious dessert recipes to try and make when it comes in the mail! I can't wait!

Meat Tenderizer That Takes Grilling to a New Level

My guy and I love to grill. Well, usually it's more of an event where he grills and I sample the delicious food that he's cooking while sitting down and observing. Hey, somebody has to do it right? It might as well be me! :)

We have tried so many new recipes on the grill this summer. We tried a fun spin on kabobs and added a Hawaiian twist by adding some ham chunks and pineapple! We've also tried some new marinades and fun spices to season the meat with. I am sad to see Fall here because that means Winter comes next and that's the time of the year that the grill has to go back in the garage to keep it safe from the snow!

I found this perfect gift for my guy online while I was checking out some new recipes the other day. I figured I would order it so we could get a lot of use out of it. It is a circular meat tenderizer that has extra sharp blades to quickly tenderize even the biggest cuts of meat. I can't wait to take grilling to a whole new level with this fantastic product!

Top of the Line Linear Actuators

A linear actuator is something that creates motion from a circular force and converts the force into a linear motion. Think about a computer disc drive or a DVD slot in a DVD player. Circular motion from inside the machine is converted to linear motion so that the slot can open and close to insert a disc. That wouldn't be possible without a linear actuator!

Specialty Motions, INC has a great selection of linear actuators. They have many different sizes available with customizable stroke lengths that can be used for a variety of products and hardware. These actuators are very strong and durable. Some can hold up to 14,500 pounds! Depending on the project, you can get single or multi-axis devices. Many fields use linear actuators. Is yours one?

He'll Be Stylish in This Sweater

My guy feels good when he feels like he looks good. Unfortunately, he doesn't always take the time or money to buy new clothes for himself. I wish I had that problem--I would have a lot more money in my checking account! :)

Now that Fall is fast approaching, I went to Kohl's yesterday (one of his favorite places to get clothes) and got him a few new shirts and sweaters for the new season. I know that he trusts my taste in knowing what he likes and I wanted to get him some new things for Fall.

I came across these 1/4 zip sweaters from Croft and Barrow that were on sale so I got the same sweater in two different colors! This is the perfect shirt because it looks dressy yet casual. Paired with khakis it could be worn to work and paired with jeans it could be worn on the weekend!

When I got home, he thanked me and said he loved the new things that I got for him!
