Give Your Husband a Father’s Day Man Cave He’ll Cherish

Make this Father’s Day extra special by setting up the perfect Man Cave for your husband. This man cave is also a kid cave, where a father and child can have tons of fun hanging out. It has the perfect combination of comfort, entertainment and hip style that any father and child will love! This man cave will encourage lots of dad/kid bonding that will be remembered throughout the years and cherished always.

I have so many fond memories of hanging with my dad as a child. I recall the first time I saw tears in my dad’s eyes during a sad movie…us girls were all crying too. I remember my father telling me tons of jokes that made me laugh for hours. I cherish all the good advice my dad has given me throughout the years like, “Worry is a waste of an emotion!” I still have that competitive edge that my dad instilled in me when we played games and he never LET me win…he made me work for it! I smile often when I think of all the fun times I’ve had with my dad and all the fun times we’ll still have in the future.

Happy Father’s Day Pop and Happy Father’s Day to all you other dads out there. May you have as much fun in your man cave with your kids as my dad and I have had throughout the years!

Kathy Ireland: The Person Behind the Baby and Kids Furniture Brand

I was compelled to write a blog post about Kathy Ireland, (once a swim suit model, now rich entrepreneur) because her product line of baby and kids furniture is just so beautiful. I also have quite a lot in common with Kathy. In the 80’s we both looked pretty good in our bathing suits although she got her picture taken a lot more than I did. We also like cool socks, except that I wear them and she’s sold over 100,000,000 since she started her business out of her car in 1993…just selling socks! Now, we’re both moms, not super models and we’re both in the baby and kids furniture business except that she now makes millions selling over 45,000 products and I get to write about them. Aren’t the similarities uncanny!

Kathy’s story of going from super model, to fading modeling career to selling socks out of her car to billionaire business owner is quite inspiring! She was told by many that, “The sock business won’t ever work!,” but she pushed onward and turned a small business of selling socks into a huge conglomerate of kids furniture, home decor and lots of other products that are designed to provide solutions for busy families.

Her motto is to always keep communication open with customers to offer products that truly satisfy a family’s needs. We, at share this motto and that’s another reason I like Kathy! It’s obvious that she truly sticks to this adage when you see the furniture and home decor products that she offers. Below I’ve highlighted one of my favorite Kathy Ireland Baby Furniture lines, but if you want to see more visit us today at
Kathy Ireland Baby Furniture
I chose the Pennsylvania collection because this is baby furniture that you can get for your baby’s nursery and continue to use it in your child’s room till he/she is off to college. Then you can keep this furniture in a guest bedroom, which makes it lifetime furniture for your home. Now that’s impressive.

The Pennsylvania Crib converts to a daybed, toddler bed and full size bed, and has a timeless design that matches the sturdy, top quality craftsmanship and beautiful style of all the storage units in this line as well. All of the Kathy Ireland furniture collections offer furnishings that are built to last and look amazing in any home. Her designs really do provide solutions for busy families by offering sturdy, kid-tough furniture, gorgeous designs that never go out of style and functional furniture that adapts to a growing child’s changing needs! You Rock Kathy!!!
