The Mister's Favorite Things

Allen Edmonds makes shopping for shoes on the Internet easy and convenient.  Because I have been wearing them for years, I know they will fit and be comfortable on my feet.  Allen Edmonds has a great program - when you wear your shoes in you can have them refurbished for about $100.00 which includes a $35.00 credit towards a new pair of shoes.  The worn-in shoes come back looking and feeling brand new. They are not only durable but they deliver pure comfort and have a great selection of styles.

I love the way the shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt feel and wear.  They never shrink, are reasonably priced, and have a great selection of colors and styles.    When they claim "no wrinkle" they're not kidding. Charles Tyrwhitt also carries a great assortment of ties and cuff links.  There is always a sale going on and the site is user friendly.



I never thought I would be particular about a haircut (considering I don't have a lot left) but I have been reborn and reformed by The Boardroom. I received a gift certificate from #1 for Christmas and  it was the perfect gift - something I would never have bought for myself!  Now it's The Boardroom for me....the cut seems to last longer and the head massage isn't bad either!  Maybe I'll send the Mrs. in to take some lessons...

Again, I love shopping from home.  Road Runner Sports offers VIP sign up, free shipping, notice when new styles and technology change.  Most importantly, Road Runner Sports offers great prices and fast delivery.

I have lost a significant amount of weight in the last 8 years.  I feel the Polar watch/heart monitor is one of the single key ingredients of my weight loss.  When I began my weight loss journey, I bought one of these and recorded my work-out progress on a daily basis.  I highly recommend this watch and heart monitor.

 Golden Blount gas grills are manufactured in Addison, Texas.  They are propane or natural gas, use infrared technology, and accessories and parts are available locally.  The grills heat up quickly, supply great heat and offer the best durability I have ever seen. This is the first grill that has lasted for several seasons, in fact 7 and counting!

Thank you Mister for doing such a great job contributing to my blog.  Maybe next time I will ask you to write about how incredibly lucky you are to be married to moi.

I asked my family including my Sista to make a list of their "favorite things." The Mister is the only one I have heard from so far. Guess the girls and Sista don't want any Christmas gifts this year. ..

Have a great weekend!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.
