Instead of Trendy or Try Hard I wanted to get a jump start on helping you shop for Father’s Day. This week blog will feature items currently available at Target and that are perfect for men.
The first collection of items can help you get an idea. Instead of going with the standard “World’s Best Dad” coffee cup get him stainless steel cocktail glasses. Or if he’s an outdoors man get him a stainless steel thermos. Dad may also like a new book or set of his favorite collectible glasses. If he’s not in to Star Trek find him a set of glasses that match his interest. Last but not least is the Father’s Day novelty gear. When in doubt you can’t go wrong with Father’s Day novelty boxers or T-Shirts. They are sure to make Dad chuckle on his special day.
Stainless Steel Cocktail Glasses – Set of 2
Mud, Sweat, and Tears: The Autobiography by Bear Grylls (Hardcover)
Star Trek 4-Piece Pint Glass Set with Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scotty Tumblers 16 oz.

Men’s Tee Father’s Day DAD 1 – Royal
Men’s Fathers Day Graphic Tee Collection
If you have younger children and are looking for a more sentimental approach you may like one of these kits. Each kit allows you to make various homemade keepsakes. Don’t let Dad fool you, like Mom, he has a sentimental side. Don’t feel weird offering Dad a sentimental present. He cherishes his children equally as much as Mom and these keepsakes are a timeless classic.

QUICK TIP: You can use my salt dough recipe to make your own hand print moldings if you prefer the DIY version instead of the store bought version. Or if you have large kids the DIY version is cheaper than the store bought versions. Simply modify my Homemade Salt Dough Recipe directions to make your hand or foot molds.

Valerian Root, Flower, and Leaf
Nature’s Way Valerian Root 530 Mg Capsules
Valerian Root sounds like some kind of psychedelic homeopathic woo that only hippies from the ’60s and practicing Wiccans would take. (No offense to either, I just don’t belong in those sects of people.) When my friend first told me about it I doubted the integrity of her information. But after months of back and forth with my doctor and no results I was willing to try anything.
I’ve been suffering from various symptoms for the past few months; none of which have an identified source. It’s been a frustrating process and I’m still working with my primary care doctor to figure it out. But in the meantime there were a few symptoms that I could sit around and wait for her to decide to treat.
Two of those symptoms were anxiety and insomnia. Now obviously I don’t need a doctor to help me find the source of those symptoms but because of my other unresolved issues she didn’t want to treat my anxiety or insomnia until she knew what else was wrong with me. So nevertheless I gave Valerian Root a try.
On my first day I took 3 530 mg and hour before bed. I didn’t really notice much. On day two I took the same amount and could feel myself becoming naturally sleepy and that has been my experience for the past few weeks of use.
What I like most about Valerian Root is that it doesn’t feel like you are taking medicine. There’s no overwhelming sedation that will keep you from functioning. You just slowly start to feel tired until you decide to go to bed. I still lay down for a few minutes. I don’t fall asleep instantly. I do however fall asleep and rest more comfortably. (Less tossing and turning)
I’ve also used Valerian Root throughout the day to treat work related anxiety. When I’m at work I just take one 530 mg capsule. There is no feeling of sedation at all with the smaller dose. You won’t even notice that it’s working. About an hour after taking it you will just feel like you slowly came in to a relaxed state and wonder how you got there.
Valerian Root truly is the best kept secret. I’d never previously heard of it let alone heard how naturally it feels when you take it. I don’t feel any side effects. It has such a natural affect that as cliché as it sounds Valerian Root makes me feel normal. At least what I imagine other people feel like when they don’t suffer from anxiety or insomnia.
Or so they say. Or do they? I will let you be the judge, jury, and executioner on this one.
All I know is that I wish Starbucks delivered. Emiliablo, the baby of the house, is currently on a 3 day hunger strike. She’s been going through bouts of deliria and hysteria brought on by a fever. Unfortunately she infected me with her illness so I’ve not got much for today’s blog. I hope you can be satisfied with this poster I pillaged from Facebook until my household returns back to sanity.
If you want to read some of my more informative posts about coffee here are few blogs that weren’t written while under the influence of pure exhaustion.

If you’re not a Bob’s Burgers fan than you probably missed out on the awesomeness that I’m calling the Tina Belcher Espresso High. Gone are the days when coffee or espresso made me feel the pure bless depicted in this episode. Watching this episode reminded me on the love affair coffee and I once had. It used to treat me so well. We had the best of times together. Anymore it only leaves me yearning for it’s love and it never leaves me satisfied. I’ve severely cut back on my caffeine intake hoping to one day catch the espresso dragon again but until then I’m left with this video to remind of what we once had together. I yearn for my next Tina Belcher Espresso High. My name is Kiablo and I’m addicted to caffeine.
Did I mention that I accept Starbucks gift cards in return for LOLs? You will be receiving my bill in 4-6 weeks.
