Welcome Home!

I love coming home to my family!  It never gets old.  Whether gone for a few hours, days or weeks ... pulling up to the curb, looking the house over, cutting across the front yard, and opening the front door ... to the cheers, applause, accolades, hugs and kisses of my adoring Wife and two girls. Ok, so maybe every time I walk in the front door it isn't as magical a moment as said.  But more often than not, even if there is crying or fighting going on somewhere in the house when I walk Read more [...]

Binge Booking

For the last month I've been wanting to write a post about my new found obsession with audio books.  It wasn't until a few minutes ago that I saw the title to a Huffington Post article ("Stop Binge-Watching and Start Binge-Reading") that I knew I had the perfect title for the post and just decided to make the time and write it!

One paragraph of what's happening --- Crazy little spout of baby drama over the last week in our house!  Baby's due date is December 23rd and at our last appointment baby was still transverse. So on the doctor's advise, we made an appointment with Labor and Delivery at the hospital we are planning to deliver at, to get an ultrasound and possible external cephalic Read more [...]

South Texas Snow

Living in South Texas has its benefits ... such as today's mid 70 degree weather ... in DECEMBER! That said, it doesn't snow here.  Well ... it did once.  We had just moved here back in February of 2011 and a blanket of ice/snow fell from the sky and the entire city shut down (link).  And I mean really shut down.  Not just school closings but like city-wide-emergency-do-not-even-look-out-the-window-shutdown.  Of course later that afternoon everything was melted and it was back up to the Read more [...]
