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. …

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 Pumpkin Seeds

I Put a Spell on You Alright, so If you’re doing Halloween remotely right, there are very good odds you have already, or will be carving up a pumpkin very soon. And when you’re in there, getting elbow deep in pumpkin guts, you may or may not know about the treasure hidden inside these orange globes of fall goodness. So allow me to shed some light. It was 2 whole years ago (yikes) when we …

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

IMG_1406

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 …

Radioactive [feat. Kendrick Lamar] [Explicit] Another week, another Humpday. I hope everyone had an awesome Easter! As you may have noticed, I have gone a few weeks without a food post.

After the big thing that happened got spoiled for her she didn’t want it to happen again. …

The 4th Birthday Cake – Lego Heist

slider

I cannot believe it’s been 4 years since our lives changed. In a way it feels like it should be decades longer, but at the same time it feels like only yesterday Seb came strolling in. This kid is growing up insanely fast and it’s apparent in everything he does. From the things he says, the things he does, and the way he thinks – it all shocks the heck out of both of us. …

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

sebs cake

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 …
