39 And Doing Fine…

Family At Margaritaville

As has become my tradition (at least since my 35th birthday) I wanted to take a few minutes to sit down with my computer and put some thoughts together. If you’re interested at all, you can look back at the last couple of years worth of babbling: Thoughts At 35 Thoughts At 36 Thoughts At 37 38 And Counting (My Blessings) So, I’m another year older and I suppose another year wiser. I’m certainly another … Continue reading

The ALS #IceBucketChallenge – A Family Affair

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

In case you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a movement afoot.  The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  What is ALS you ask?  From the ALS Association website: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. … Continue reading

38 And Counting (My Blessings)

Family - Tami

I’m sitting here at Panera on a Saturday morning as is my normal routine, working on stuff for clients, catching up on email, etc. What’s a little abnormal is that it’s my 38th birthday.  And while I’ve got a HUGE list of stuff to get done, I’ve got to take a minute to put some thoughts down here on the blog. I started this “tradition” when I turned 35 and I’ve continued it with Thoughts At … Continue reading

Wine In The Maternity Ward? You Know It!

At The Hospital For LLB

So if you’ve been following along at home, you know that we recently had our 3rd boy. Mama was good during her pregnancy but couldn’t wait to be able to have a glass of wine. So… we brought it with us!  Prosecco for Mom & Dad, sparkling juice for the Boys. Incidentally… Dude is awesome. It’s so great having 3 boys!!!

A New Link In The Chain

Mom, Link & Dad

It’s been quite some time since I’ve added something to the blog here, but I assure you I’ve got a good reason.  See, while I haven’t added anything to the site, we’ve been busy adding to our family.  Our little man came into the world on May 4th, 2014!  Yep… he’s a “Star Wars Baby” being born on May the 4th.  How appropriate is that with Dad’s love of Star Wars? It was an interesting … Continue reading

Taking A Closer Look At My Former Fast Food Obsession

Fuck McDonalds

I’ve got plenty of vices.  I love beer.  I’m big fan of whiskey and I make every excuse (legit or not) to not work out nearly as often as I should.  That said, I’ve had one vice that’s proven the most difficult to beat: Fast Food. Kicking my fast food habit has been more difficult (in some ways at least) than when I quit dipping.  Thanks to the folks at KillTheCan.org I’ve got that one … Continue reading

Thoughts At 37

Family On Marco Island

Not sure how it happened, but we’re through July and as I flip the calendar I realize it’s once again August 2nd, and I’ve turned another year older.  Sadly… the immortality pill hasn’t been discovered in this past year :).  I’m absolutely floored by the number of folks that have taken time out of their day to drop me a note on Facebook, Twitter, text, etc. to wish me a happy birthday – thanks you … Continue reading

Thoughts At 36

G's Pre-K Graduation

Another year has passed and as the calendar flips to August 2nd I’m reminded that no matter what I tell myself, I’m not immortal.  Today’s my 36th birthday.  I’m once again blown away at the number of people that have gone out of their way today on Facebook, Twitter and in person to wish me a happy birthday… thank you all!  Last year, I wrote this post reflecting on my 35th birthday and I’ve realized … Continue reading

Father’s Day 2012

Breakfast In Bed For Father's Day

Sunday was Father’s Day and I wanted to make sure that I get this posted before I forget the details of a glorious day.  I was woken on Sunday morning the sounds of the boys downstairs.  I was in and out of sleep, but that’s pretty normal on the weekends when Mom & Dad tend to sleep in a bit and the boys are raring to go.  Through my sleep haze, I could have sworn … Continue reading

Yep… This Kid Is Cool

C Sleeping

So last night, we finally had C-Man’s birthday party (we’d celebrated on his actual birthday when we were on vacation in Florida back in March).  I was going through the hard drive this AM and realized that I’ve got quite a few AWESOME pics of the big man so I just had to share them!  It’s been FAR too long since I’ve done a C-centric post! As I mentioned, we took our yearly trip to … Continue reading
