Every 4 years, it’s a treat to watch the US Women’s National Team (USWNT) make a run at a World Cup championship. Perennial favorites, they’re once again making a dominant run. In the quarterfinals, they’ll face France – the home country and the only team to have defeated them in this cycle. Continue reading
When you ask a happily married couple to think back to their wedding, you’re almost always greeted with a smile as they teleport back to a rosy place in their memory. They go to a nostalgic place and relive the excitement of the day for you.
After the months of planning, invitation lists, day-of crises, vows, speeches, dances, and Aunt Barb getting so drunk she stumbled into the garden and fell asleep, you’re left with a few tokens which spark the memories you’ll never forget. Continue reading
It’s almost graduation season! Most of you probably have family members or close friends who are graduating this year.
Graduating, whether from high school or college (or even kindergarten!), is an important milestone in every person’s life. As such, you’ll want to commemorate this special occasion with a gift that is not only useful but unique and personal as well. In other words, a thoughtful gift. One that not only says “I’m proud of you!” but also one that shows that you had the recipient in mind while choosing the gift.
Not only that, but one that marks the occasion well. A gift they look at and say “that’s from when I graduation!”
Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?
You know one of the biggest flaws in the Santa Clause Story? It’s not the flying reindeer. Nor is it him visiting 5500 children a second if he’s supposed to visit all the world’s children in one night. It isn’t even that he’ll have to eat 150 billion calories (which puts even my Christmas binge eating to shame). It’s how he’s ever supposed to select the right present for each and every child.
I mean, seriously. Every time I have to buy something for my family I end up tearing out clumps of hair. And there are only 15 of them, not 1.5 billion. How has the stress not killed him yet? Sometimes I feel like eating 150 billion calories just to deal with the Christmas shopping!
Are you struggling with the same problem? Then maybe I can help. I’ve got some ideas you might like. Now, I want you to imagine me doing jazz hands as I say this. You ready? Bobbleheads. Continue reading
Happy Mother’s Day! While you (hopefully) already have your flowers picked out, card written, special dinner planned, or some other way to tell the moms in your life they’re special and you appreciate them, we’ve got one more way to commemorate the day. Win her a free bobblehead customized to look like her, personalized with all the accessories that makes her special to you! Continue reading
“Maybe I should just get her something for the kitchen,” You mumble, even as you’re disgust by yourself for thinking it. She’s your mom, not your cook! She deserves more than some unimaginative pot or coffee maker. Besides, you already got her that toaster last year. At the same time, you muse, a new appliance is better than a card and some flowers, right?
Yeah, but not by much – and there isn’t much room in the attic for another gift she won’t use. Continue reading
Wow, are weddings tough things to plan! If you’re going through that, then our hats off to you. We thought running Whoop Ass Enterprises was hard, but that doesn’t hold a candle to planning a wedding.
I mean, there is just so much that you’ve got to decide. There’s the cake, the floral decorations, the location, the wedding list, who sits where (for heaven’s sake, don’t put Aunty Liz next to Stew!) and, of course, all the gifts. Continue reading
January 7th is national bobblehead day! It might not make every single calendar produced, and you may not get the day off for it (although you probably do this year since it’s a Saturday), but it’s still a pretty deal to us. We think of it like an extra birthday.
The day was developed by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame Museum in 2015, and we’re on to our third year of celebration now.
Looking for a cool way to celebrate? Get started with a custom bobblehead doll to add to your collection. Take a picture for #nationalbobbleheadday this year and send it to on us on Facebook and Twitter to join the celebration.
Football season is great. The beer, the wings, the pizza, the hanging out with friends and screaming at the television on Sunday afternoons. And with fantasy football, you get to scream at things all day, rather than just while your favorite team is playing. These days, we’re often guilty of getting more excited when our fantasy football players score than when our favorite team does.
