In the key of Julie Andrews in The Sounds of Music, these are a few of my favorite … posts that I like to re-read every now and again. Enjoy!
I’ve always wanted to write something like this – a timeline of an event.

Of course since … Continue reading Diary of a Delivery – Day 1
As Mom and new baby sleep, I thought I would continue my Diary of a Delivery with the second and final part (thank God!). If you read yesterday’s post then you’ll know that I signed off the computer at 11:12 p.m. (If you didn’t you can read it here.) I should have gone to bed. … Continue reading Diary of a Delivery – Part 2: Showtime!
Finding 49 things about Super Bowl 49 was kind of tough, so since I’ve sworn off Twitter, and have decided to stay away from posting “nonsense” on Facebook, I thought I would create a blog post full of 30-something things I thought about Super Bowl 49, and 15-something things popped into my head this last month. Have … Continue reading 49 Things I Thought About Super Bowl 49 (and throughout the month of January)
Dear Sky Valley, The website I used to frequently write for, PopBlerd!, had a column I loved called “Songs in the Key of Life.” In this column writers related a song to a moment in their life.

There are certain phrases in life you just don’t want to hear. “You have cancer” usually makes the top five of that list. On April 7, 2005 – nine years ago today – my wife and I heard those news as the doctor informed us that she had leukemia. I had always enjoyed the “Songs in the … Continue reading Songs in the Key of Life: Rascal Flatts’ “Skin (Sarabeth)”
I’m sorry Sports. It’s not you, it’s me. It’s just that I put so much heart and soul into this relationship, and I really don’t feel like I’m getting anything out of it. I’m sorry. We’re going to need to take a break. At least for a week, just to see where we stand. I … Continue reading Sorry Sports. I Need a Break.
Another story written by me and published on PopBlerd! Please check out the site! Well done NBC, well done. NBC’s useage of Diddy Dirty Money’s “Coming Home” as the promo for Sunday Night Football’s Broncos – Colts matchup was perfect. So perfect it gave me chills when I first viewed it … and a second … Continue reading Coming Home: Peyton Manning Makes His Indianapolis Return
Once again, stealing my own work from PopBlerd!

I think Clark Griswold may have rubbed off on me. Instead of “Look kids! Big Ben! Parliament!” it was “Look kids! Another farm plain!” There were chants of “I’m bored!” or “Are we there yet?” but in the end I felt like Clark on his Quest for Fun! Because darnit I grew up on family … Continue reading Our First Road Trip or Five Tips on Traveling with Three Kids!

It’s been over three years since I last took a vacation. Vacation meaning a trip that’s sole purpose is to chill. Thus “vacation” excludes Las Vegas weddings, road trips to move the Grandparents, and business trips to Boise; the only trips I’ve taken since our Brazil excursion in 2009. Life has been kind of hectic, … Continue reading Bucket List Endorsement: Ten Vacations I Want to Take!
