From Dad’s Desk:

Since the creation of “Business Casual”, it has been a struggle to balance the fine line between too formal and too casual.  The polo shirt does an excellent job of filling in that gap–it can be worn with jeans, khakis, and in some cases, dress slacks.

Land’s End is introducing their newest member of the polo family–The Original Mesh Men’s Polo.  This is the first major overall since they introduced their version of the polo shirt in 1981.  I think it is reasonably priced and comes in lots of great colors.  It is guaranteed to become a staple of your wardrobe.

I was lucky enough to get one to field test, and I have to say it performed flawlessly. When I first opened the package, you could see and feel the difference compared to the competitors–some of them very well known names.  In the Virgina heat it kept me cool.  The color was bold (blue), there was enough material to tuck it in, and the collar didn’t curl up–like some of my other shirts.  It laundered well and looked as great as when I first got it.  There are so many new features that you need to go to Land’s End and check them out for yourself.

So, now for the Giveaway.  This will run until June 22, 2011.

Again, a winner will be chosen on June 22, 2011.   If you are chosen, you will be contacted for your shirt size and address.  Unfortunately, you won’t be able to choose the color or pattern, but you will be getting a great new polo and addition to your wardrobe!


“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Dad Central Consulting on behalf of Lands’ End and received a polo shirt to facilitate my review, one to giveaway, and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

Summer Fun!

I just got a note that someone over at Parenting Pink liked my siesta idea for the summer:) Thank you! Having a rest during the day has made my life easier…therefore the children are happier, too!
We have been having a good summer. We enjoyed a Lowe’s “Build & Grow” Clinic recently. My little one built a Daddy’s Day present with her Dad:) I recommend this fun, free activity–check here or with your local Lowe’s for more info. I think they have a “Build a Pirate Ship” coming up–You do need to pre-register, but you can do it online. (I think the experience probably does vary by store, but if you’re out and about on a Saturday morning, this is a little treat for the kids)

I also got a kick out of just letting our little one play with the legos at the lego store. Who knew that could be so fun? When I was younger, I would hurry my kids through. Now, I just get a cup of coffee and watch them:)

Well, this week will be all about Vacation Bible School for us, but if I hear about any little fun things to do I will post them here! Oh…speaking of which–the rebox code rbxthxu6 should be good through tomorrow for a free redbox. Thank you, uh oh. I cannot find where I got that tip from! But, I did use it today & it worked.
