After 30 years…

The other day I met a friend for lunch. We talked about all sorts of things. He shard a few stories about his minor league baseball career I hadn’t heard before. We talked about some home improvement projects I’m working on. And he told me about his recent vacation to celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary. … Continue reading

Timehop: What did you do 1 year ago today?

Timehop: What did you do 1 year ago today?

One tool Pastor Matt recently told me about that is hilarious is Timehop: What did you do 1 year ago today? Here’s the idea: Every day it emails you what you were doing 1 year ago today from your Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram and your text messages. Sounds simple enough, right? Why would I want … Continue reading

Cracking up with Family

Cracking up with Family

My family is ridiculous. Not the embarrassing kind, though they can do that too. But they’re the hurt-in-your-side-because-you’re-laughing-so-hard kind of ridiculous. Exhibit A: We recently got together because my sister, who lives in Texas, came in to town. My mom takes every opportunity to take family pictures available, and for some reason we assumed this pose: To … Continue reading

Headlight Restoration Project

So I decided to do a headlight restoration project. The headlights on my 2004 Pontiac Vibe were looking a little cloudy. They didn’t impair much, but it made the whole care look a little dingy. So I went to Autozone and priced out a few options, then read over a few quick reviews on Amazon.com … Continue reading

Ella Grace’s Birth Story

If reading about giving birth weirds you out, you might want to skip this post. Since my son Jonathan was born 9 days late, I had been telling myself that Ella would be born late also, so that I wouldn’t go crazy if her due date came and went without her arrival. I was hoping … Continue reading

Our recent addition

Ella is here! Yesterday (Tuesday, September 6th), Stephanie started having really light contractions while at home with Jonathan. She’ll tell you all the birth story later, but we left the house around 7:30pm and by 9:42, Ella was born! She is so cute and we just absolutely love her. We’re so excited to have her … Continue reading

Having fun at home!

The perfect toy: tupperware. It doesn’t break easily. No batteries required. And it’s mainly for adults, which makes it an ideal toy for a toddler. Jonathan loves playing in the tupperware cabinet. I don’t quite know why tupperware is so fun. Maybe it’s because we usually ask him to not play in there… and they … Continue reading

Can we still be friends?

Google Apps, I love your cool styling and ease of use. You’re so cool and help me connect so well. Your Web 2.0 interface helps me communicate in context as messages are grouped into conversations and I can reply by chat right there in the same page. I love the way you use Google’s search … Continue reading

A big change

A few weeks ago I received some great coffee from my brother, who had just returned from Seattle. For the past two weeks, I’ve been enjoying that high-quality coffee in the morning. Yesterday I ran out. There wasn’t enough time to run to the store to get some good coffee this morning before Stephanie left … Continue reading

We’ve Graduated!

Jonathan’s no longer spitting up. Nope. He’s throwing up now. The scent confirms it. Awesome. Gotta say, Stephanie’s a trooper. She’s been hit twice in the last 24 hours. She’s an awesome mom! And Lucy a big help in the cleanup department.

Saturday Morning Routine: Operation PANCAKE

So I’m adjusting to our new pace of life in South Florida. Not only is it different than Kentucky because of the culture, it’s also REALLY different because Jonathan is growing up and creating new kinds of challenges – like being extra grumpy while teething. But it’s been a fun ride. We’re really feeling settled … Continue reading

A new game

Jonathan and I have started playing a new game. I give him the pasi and he throws it on the ground. Awesome. Here’s a picture of him sleeping.

Starbucks Gifts

My brother just got back from a conference in Seattle. While there, he had to visit the first Starbucks on Pikes Place. My brothers and I have a fondness for Starbucks. More on that later. While in Seattle, Tim picked up a gift for me. He’s incredibly generous. I cant wait to use it in … Continue reading
