Family Travels: The Georgia Aquarium

ft

A few weeks ago for the wife’s birthday we decided to take a trip. We wanted to go somewhere the kids would enjoy, but more importantly, somewhere that wouldn’t make us have to rearrange our spending habits for the next few months like Disney is known to do. So we took a little 5 hour drive to Atlanta where we visited the Georgia Aquarium! It was a first time for me on a few fronts. …

I’ve made it numerous times and had multiple opportunities to document and create a post. …

Heart Shaped Glasses Happy Valentine’s Day! It wouldn’t be a holiday on this blog if I didn’t cut it super close! I’ve been pretty busy and I wasn’t really planning on doing something for Valentine’s Day, but I had a pretty big reason to besides the undying love I have for my wife and her undying love for brownies… It turns out I did something right in the last year because Wilton asked me to …

A Boy and his Blog

Remember the Name Alright! New year, new you, whatever it is people say. For a few months now, whenever I checked out the site here I saw a few things that needed updating. I couldn’t do anything, of course, because for the past few months if I had an itch I had to schedule a time to scratch it. But I finally said that’s it! I made it a priority and I’m getting it done! …

Jacks Obsession The day has finally come! I feel like I’ve been holding this secret in forever. A few weeks ago, the Wilton Treat Team was asked if we’d like to do a Secret Santa cookie swap amongst each other. With me never taking part but always having the urge to participate in one, I jumped at the idea! I thought the idea sounded like a blast. I was already thinking about the cookie I …

What’s This It’s Christmas time!! Kris my Kringles, where the heck has the year gone?! I know, I’m pretty bad with this blog thing during the holidays.

This Is Halloween Halloween! Seven hells, it’s already Halloween.. Do you remember last Halloween? I do. Like it was yesterday!

Haunted houses? Parties? For us, the one thing we always do is watch Hocus Pocus with some cookies and hot cocoa. You …
