Happy Friday everyone! Before heading out to the much anticipated weekend, I wanted to share with you these new hoodies we got in from Rusty.
They’re full-zip hoodies that feature the embroidered Rusty logo, two front pockets, an inside hooded lining, and a machine washable headphones outlet cord and earbuds! The earbuds are built right into the drawstring so, kids, you don’t even have to worry about getting caught listening to your favorite jams while in class. Pretty cool, huh?
They’re available now in blue or black at Surf Fanatics for only $49.50. Pair it with some khaki walkshorts and a cool hat, and you’re sure to have one relaxing weekend outfit.
Don’t forget, today and every day – free shipping over $50!
Have a good one!

Although it’s extremely hot during the summer months in Florida, it is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s the perfect time to travel across the country, catch up on home improvement projects, read a great book, and get together with friends and family to cookout. But before you start rolling the grill out, here are a few tips and ideas on how to host the best summer cookout ever.
1. Choose a theme. Having a themed cookout is always fun and it makes things easier. Set the mood with custom invitations and carry it throughout the entire get together. Having a luau? Be sure to encourage your guests to strap on their coconut bras and grass skirts. Or download the Best of the 80′s hits, have a “Big Hair” contest, and go with an 80′s themed party instead.
2. Plan a menu. Since it is a cookout, your menu should consist of food that tends to be prepared outdoors on a grill. Burgers and hot dogs are perfect for a Patriotic Stars and Stripes theme, but for a festive Fiesta theme, impress your guests with yummy chicken and steak fajitas. Serve signature drinks like Shirley Temples, fruity daiquiris, or more creative cocktails if you’re planning an island-inspired casino cookout.
3. Create a great setup. Having your guests RSVP is important. It allows you to know how much food to prepare as well as how many place settings you need. If you don’t have enough space for everyone to sit and eat at the same time, make the party very informal by setting the food out buffet-style, and arranging conversation sitting areas.
4. Party! As guests begin to arrive, get the party going with music and appetizers. Plan at least one activity that engages everyone. An icebreaker that ties with the theme would work best.
There you have it. Four simple tips and tricks to pulling off the summer’s best cookout.
