  • Christmas 2012

    After our awesome trip to Hawaii we only had a few days before Angela’s mom and grandma (and Thor) came for the Christmas holiday and we had another big week of busy craziness. Although we only had company for five days, we did a ton of stuff. First, we went and picked up Angela’s certificate…

  • Hawaii

    Angela and I recently visited Hawaii (the big island) for our two year anniversary. In whole, it was an awesome vacation – it certainly didn’t start that way though. We were scheduled to leave Las Vegas at 12:40 AM (in the wee morning hours) but due to a series of maintenance delays, we didn’t end…

  • Brocation in Phoenix, AZ

    My brother and I recently met up for a 5-day long vacation together in Phoenix, AZ. About 4 months ago, I decided it was time for us to see a major college football game. I’d never seen one (having only played at the Division III level) and my brother had only been to one before…

  • Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris

    Angela and I decided to try something different this year for Thanksgiving. Because we were in San Francisco until the day before the holiday, neither one of us really wanted to spend time preparing a home-cooked meal. As such, we ventured out to the Las Vegas strip (which was a nightmare to drive on) and…

  • Javier’s Mexican Restaurant at Aria

    The other day, Angela and I were on the strip looking for somewhere to eat lunch. We had originally planed on stopping at Todd English’s Olives at the Bellagio but we accidentally walked the wrong direction and ended up not making it there by the time it closed for lunch. As such, we made our…

  • Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football – November 19, 2012

    They lost, let’s not talk about it. This was us before our hopes were crushed:

  • Mon Ami Gabi in Las Vegas

    Last Saturday night Angela and I went to Mon Ami Gabi and enjoyed a nice dinner. I wasn’t really expecting much after learning it was a chain (and after our experience with another notable premium chain restaurant earlier this month in Ruth’s Chris) but dinner was very tasty. Special shout out to Theresa for the…

  • Renaissance Festival Disappointment

    Wow, the renaissance festival that we went to was awful. I think I had expectations that were totally out of line with what a renaissance fair actually is. In my mind, it was going to be a somewhat interesting and educational experience that would show off the garb and customs of cultures during the renaissance…

  • San Diego, October 2012

    San Diego, October 2012

    Day 1 Nick and I made awesome time and made it to San Diego in only 5 hours. After we checked in to our hotel on the bay, we made the less than half mile walk over to the USS Midway, the decommissioned aircraft carrier that has been turned into a museum. Obviously, it’s enormous.…

  • The Hardest Legs Workout I’ve Ever Done

    Yesterday, Angela told me she came up with a new legs workout and asked if I wanted to do it with her. I said sure, and we got started. We headed to the gym and things started out easy enough. We jumped on the elliptical machines to get our heartrates up and get the blood…
