Theme Parks and Us

Alright, a spiffy new category, let’s see if we could break it in. First off, Theme Park Adventures is going to be a pretty open category. Experiences, stories, picture dumps, reviews, whatever. Basically, when we moved back to Orlando, we knew one of the top things we wanted to do was get annual passes to the theme parks. Heck, we were heavily considering getting annual passes while living in NC! Were we crazy? No. We …

Family Travels: Florida Part DCCXV

We’re finally back from vacation! And by finally, I mean we’ve been here for like a month but I’ve been too lazy to do anything productive. Three cheers for procrastination! Seriously, I feel like a bum, it’s terrible. But at the same time, it’s ok! Want to know why? Because I don’t feel too guilty about it. Sure, you guys have probably been wandering, lost, and scared without my ramblings. But I’m sure you were …

Happy New Year!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaapppppyyy Neeeeeeeeeew Yeeeeeeeeeear! Hey, we’re more than a week into it, but so what?! It’s still exciting! Wow, I’ve gone a whole year without posting something! (Haha, I love that joke. Never gets old.) Seriously, I keep going these long stints without updating this bad boy and I promise I feel really bad about it. With a new year here and all the resolution hype surrounding the first few weeks, I’d be lying if I …

Pumpkin Spiced Bone Cookies

This Is Halloween Halloween! Seven hells, it’s already Halloween.. Do you remember last Halloween? I do. Like it was yesterday! But we mustn’t complain about how time is flying or we’ll find ourselves in 2015 before we finish the rant. Instead, let’s talk Halloween! Who has traditions? Let me know in the comments. Movies? Haunted houses? Parties? For us, the one thing we always do is watch Hocus Pocus with some cookies and hot cocoa. You …

Humpday Update – 06/25/2014 – Disney Vacation Edition!

Happy Alright, I guess it’s about time I get to blogging again. We’ve been back now for around 2 weeks.. or 3? Who the heck knows, I’m still on vacation time so everything has been out of whack. I’ve even tried to prolong the vacation atmosphere at home by neatly lining up on our vanity the single-serving bathroom amenities that mysteriously found their way into my bag. While it briefly gave the feeling of a …

Humpday Update – 5/14/14

Land of the Midnight Sun! The final frontier! (wait, isn’t that space? Don’t quote me on “the final frontier” thing) North of the Wall! We are stoked. We’ve been wanting to go to Alaska for yeeeeeears and have never had …

Disney Movie Theories Pt. I

  I just watched Frozen for the first time the other day. My wife and my oldest had already seen it and ever since then I’ve had this underlining jealously towards them for it, especially after it won all those academy awards. But I’m not going to really talk about how awesome it was, or how great the songs were, or how much I’ve been wanting to watch it again. There are plenty of other …

3 + 1 = 4

Shinedown – simple man Oh, hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Wow, about 2 months since my last post. And don’t go acting like you noticed because I know you didn’t! It’s been so long, this post is a couple of days in the making because I honestly forgot how to write. When you don’t even pick up your laptop for 2 months, you’ll find yourself staring at a screen for a while …

The 3rd Birthday Cake – Foreign Contaminant

Today, on my son’s Nameday, I’m reminded that 3 years ago I became a Dad. You’d think after 3 years I’d get used to the title, but no, it still makes me step back and reflect. Makes me not only feel blessed, but it also makes me think, “holy crap, I’m someone’s Old Man.” It stings at first because I’m not short on things that make me feel old, but with his current admiration for …
