  • Andre’s Las Vegas

    Last week, Angela and I went to Andre’s Las Vegas for dinner. We purchased a TravelZoo Local deal for a 3-course meal (appetizer, entree, desert) at Andre’s because it seemed like a good deal and would be a good way to get out of the house and have a nice date night. Andre’s is located…

  • Grieving My Sister – Renee Ohrn

    Today would have been my sister Renee’s 21st birthday. Unfortunately, she’s not alive to enjoy it – she died in an apartment fire about two years ago. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been going through the grieving process and it has been really, really tough. In this post, I’m going to talk about…

  • CraftSteak at the MGM Grand Resort

    Angela, her mother Theresa, and I ate at Tom Colicchio’s CraftSteak last night at the MGM Grand in celebration of Angela’s birthday. Angela and I agree that it is definitely the best place we’ve eaten at in Las Vegas. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the experience was great. We would definitely…

  • Recent Lifting

    I’ve been doing a variety of weightlifting stuff lately and made a short video showing off some of my strength gains. The video shows me hang cleaning 185×5, hang snatching 135×5, and bench pressing 245×5. Let me know what you think!

  • Greens & Proteins Healthy Kitchen in Las Vegas

    Angela and I decided to try out a new restaurant tonight and were excited to find a little gem near our apartment. It is called Greens & Proteins and is about 12 minutes away from home. We were drawn to the restaurant by the promise of an ostrich burger. In addition, we’ve been looking for…

  • February 2013 Meal Plan

    Angela and I have really buckled down our eating this year. First, we wanted to make a concerted effort to eat better nutritionally. Second, we don’t go out to eat anymore, which has been a huge help in terms of budget and knowing what goes into our bodies. Although we eat fairly plain nowadays, neither…

  • Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire

    Angela and I went to the Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire last Saturday and had a pretty awesome time. About 40 exhibitors were present, and each was very passionate about the items they were presenting, what they’d created and the chance for the average person to build really cool stuff. While we didn’t talk to…

  • February 2013 Weightlifting Workout

    Angela and I have been enjoying our home workout equipment a lot. We love the fact that all we have to do to get a good workout is walk down to the garage and put in the effort. For the first four weeks of this year, we eased ourselves into a regular weightlifting program. We…

  • Home Gym Awesomeness

    Home Gym Awesomeness

    In November, Angela and I had finally had enough of the big box gym and the crowds that come with it. We bought an elliptical machine for our living room and decided it was time to purchase some weights and get out of our gym memberships. This decision has turned out to be one of…
