I don’t normally hate on a Hallmark holiday, but truth be told I cannot stand Father’s Day! It has absolutely nothing to do with me being self-centered or selfish, but it always overshadows my damn birthday! Every single year I am neglected. Well, not every year, but pretty damn close.
Usually every year my husband and I go back and forth about what we’re going to do, and what event we are going to celebrate; my birthday or Father’s Day. We are typically forced to have to make a choice about the weekend plans because I’m sure people don’t want to come to our house twice in one week. So…our logic is to celebrate Father’s Day; kinda a celebrate more people (all the guys in the family) in one day theory – sigh.
This year we did something different. We celebrated my birthday two weeks early. Dante (my husband) got a batch of our friends together and had a small party at a bar for me. It was supposed to be a surprise. But my husband can’t hold water. He started acting out of character about a week or so before the day. I caught on quick and figured he was trying to get me out the house. So I pried and found out that yes in fact he was having a party, and along the way found out where it was, and everyone who’s going to be in attendance. SURPRISE. Even though I had fun. I still feel like I get the shaft.
When I stepped back to think about it, we actually had to move my birthday in order to make room for Father’s Day, and other blackouts in our schedule. I guess it really doesn’t matter because my birthday falls on Tuesday this year – officially the most boring day of the week. OAN: I just bought my husband’s Father’s Day gift, and while I was paying for it I realized that he didn’t give me anything for Mother’s Day! Tell me, am I being a colossal ungrateful bitch this year, or what? He told me he didn’t get a gift because his grand plans fell through. HELLOOOOOO SHAFT!
So now I’m like six paragraphs into this and I totally forgot what the hell I was going to post about.
That’s right, perfect rooms for the man in your life. I felt inspired to do this post because of all the Father’s Day e-mails that are flooding my inbox. Side note: Sears must have to pay a hell of a lot in marketing expenses.
“Get this great gift for dad”,
“Upgrade dads phone this year”,
“Get the new iPad for dad”…..
How about hiring designer to get your dude’s messy-stank-ass-man-cave in order this year?! Guess I am feeling some type of way this weekend. I know the above 500 or so words about me secretly hating Father’s Day probably killed all chances of anyone hiring me as a gift for the dad in their life, but at the very least I can show you the showcase of masculine rooms I initially meant to talk about.
Now Ladies- There are rules to this ish. Designing for a man is way different design for a woman/family. Happy Fathers Day Fellas! Oh – ladies if you still want to hire me as a gift, there is still time. Email us here: firstname.lastname@example.org Or see my work at YAYDECOR. Your Interior Designer & HGTV Host
