Disney: Disney’s Hollywood Studios

On Wednesday, May 16, we hit up Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  I love Hollywood Disney.  I really do.  It has my two favorite rides:  The Tower of Terror (which I rode on 4 or 5 times that day) and the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster (which I rode on twice).  We also hit up the new Star […]

Keeps Me Sane

It seems in my eternal struggle to get a good night’s sleep that it’s always one step forward then one step back to square one: population, exhaustion.  Last night, I didn’t sleep very well.  I didn’t sleep well because yesterday evening, I received bad news that devastated me and…well, weighed on my mind all night.  Everyone […]

Disney: The Magic Kingdom

Better late than never, right?  I know it’s well beyond the time frame in which anyone really cares to hear about our trip to Disney World last month, but I’m going to blog about it for posterity anyway!

For You, I’d Give the World

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably have seen my scattered Tweets alluding to my grandfather’s health.  Back in March, Grandpa was diagnosed with cancer.  He was originally told that it was just a growth that needed to be removed, but when they biopsied it, it ended up being the Big C.  It started […]

That Time My Sister Ran into De Niro & Stallone.

Jay and I have been very fortunate to run into celebrities while at San Diego Comic Con, but my sister and Jeremiah #2 seriously have to gift of random celeb encounters.  Saturday morning, Katelyn texted me: A few minutes ago, she emailed me the link to this picture.  You can see Jer in the green […]

May 14

Just wanted to take a moment to remember my Aunt Carol, who passed away one year ago today from complications of diabetes.  My goodness, how quickly a year goes by.  How quickly…  At our wedding, we made a donation to the American Diabetes Association instead of giving out favors at the end of the night.
