Father’s Day is this weekend and once again I find myself absent from my family on Father’s Day. Some of the Hot Mamas and I are heading to Whistler this weekend to tackle Tough Mudder for the fourth, yes FOURTH, year in a row. And for some reason, our Mudder weekend often falls on Father’s Day.
This doesn’t usually set off bells, whistles and alarms at our house, but I often feel bad that I’m not here to celebrate the day with my kids’ very spectacular father. He always suggests we “do” Father’s Day the following weekend and it works out just fine. However, my kids are very excited this year to celebrate their Daddy and I know they’ll want to give their homemade gifts to him on the day of Father’s Day. I find as they get older it is getting harder and harder to “bump” celebrations to accommodate our schedules. Jeez…all this growing up!
If you know my family at all, you’ll know we’re an active sort. We like to get out and move our bodies as a family. Hikes, walks, workouts, sports, we really do try to get the kids moving as much as possible. So, usually any type of celebration is done by moving our bodies. But, it’s difficult to organize family activities when I’m going to be absent. “Hey HONEY! I organized this awesome hike for you and the kids to do on your special day” probably wouldn’t be the best gift. Although it might make me giggle, I’m a nicer person than that.
BUT…my husband does like to BBQ and I was told about this hot sauce box you can order for Father’s Day. Hahahaha…OMG…hot sauce box…that could go somewhere inappropriate.
<can’t stop giggling>
Anyways, they’re called Fuego Box and they have this Father’s Day box you can order. It looks all rustic and “manly” and I figure at least I can get my husband something for the DAY of Father’s Day. The box is filled with spicy stuff like HOT honey and a dry hot sauce (which sounds kind cool, non?!).
THEN I was told I could do a giveaway here and I thought…HECK YEAH! I’d love for my Hot Mamas to have the chance to win something for their baby Daddy. So, if you’re going to be absent on Father’s Day (go Hot Mudder Mamas!!), we can leave this little gifty all wrapped up for them and earn some brownie points!
Have no fear, I’ll get my little family active for Father’s Day the weekend after Father’s Day…it’s the gift that keeps on giving. My hope is that we’ll get active and I’ll get my husband so hungry he’ll want to BBQ and use some of these spices! See…win win!
I can be an absentee Mama on Father’s Day and still be thoughtful. Phew! Thank goodness for online shopping!!
And you…it’s your turn! Go enter to win! We can be superstar Mamas on Father’s Day together! There are a bunch of ways below that you can enter to win. Do some, do them all…whatever you have time for!!!
