A Hockey Christmas

I had noticed that the family’s NHL fan-apparel was due for replacing. So this year for Christmas, I did NHL themed gifts for my family. I sneakily did some some detective work (ok, so I straight up asked everyone) to see what everybody wanted. Being a Bruin’s fan, it is was difficult purchasing Caps and Rangers apparel... but I also took a moment to be thankful that I do not have any Flyers’ fans in the family... that would be awwwwwwkward. Here's what I found on Fanatics:

                                     Bought these for the fam for Xmas!

I think they liked them. :)

Dad also requested a new Sher-Wood (hockey stick). It was fun seeing him light up like a kid, “Look at all this fresh ink! Perfect for tattooing.” When my father says “tattooing” or “Give him a Sher-Wood tattoo!”  he means slamming his stick (where it says “Sher-Wood) across another dudes chest hard enough leave a “Sher-Wood” mark/tattoo on it.

The last I heard, Dad was pretty stoked to get on the ice and rip some slapshots with his new stick. Let's just hope he doesn't poke somebody's eye out. (Yes, that was an intentional Christmas Story reference).


Dana Podgurski

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
