It was the first full week of August and I’m high-fiving because it’s my favorite month of the year! August is always filled with things to be excited about! Here are 5 things to high-five about this week!
1. Lovin’ the Desk Dudes
Last month we showcased over 200 new products in our catalog, and we’re having a blast learning what our customer’s favorite new products are! One of our most popular new items is also my favorite too! It’s our awesome Desk Dudes
! We even had a customer send us a picture of her Desk Dude in action, and we love it!
2. U.S Coast Guard Day
U.S. Coast Guard Day was last Sunday, and for my family, it’s an extra special day. My twin brother has been a member of the Coast Guard since 2009, and we’re so proud of him! They do amazing things to protect our country every day, and we owe them some serious gratitude
! As with all military branches, the service men and women deserve a “thanks
” everyday, but it’s nice to have a special day dedicated just to them.
3. Keeping cool
I mentioned that August is my favorite month of the year, but I’ll admit that even I can get tired of the hot and humid weather that usually come with it. (Even though we’ve been pretty lucky so far!) My trick to beating the heat is to have ice cold water with me at all times, and our new our new Twist Top Tumblers
and water bottles
are perfect for the job! They are super-stylish and feature lots of bright colors and some of our most popular themes
4. Restaurant Week
Restaurant Week Grand Rapids
kicks off this Sunday and goes through the following week. As a local food enthusiast, I look forward to this event every year. It’s so much fun to taste unique dishes from some of the city’s top chefs and enjoy the downtown atmosphere at its finest! What’s not to love about delicious food specials for an entire week?
5. Soak up the sunshine
In my books, August is the best month to visit the beautiful beaches of West Michigan. We’re so lucky to have Lake Michigan so close, and tons of beautiful beaches to choose from. And our new Value Coolers
make trips to the beach even better! They’re the perfect accessory to store beach snacks or a 6-pack of cans in! I know where I’ll be spending my weekends, and I hope all of you get a chance to hit the beaches, too!
