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 […]

James Came to Visit!

A couple weeks ago, James came to visit us and attend an NSCA conference down on the strip. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend a lot of time together as he was mostly in town for the conference getting his CEUs to keep his CSCS cert current. We pretty much only had a couple evenings […]

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy Ohrn

A few days ago, our little puppy turned 6 months old. As such, it is probably a good time to introduce him to the world. Here’s the main points: Our little puppy is super cute Sometimes he is a huge pain in the ass I have taken more pictures of this little dog than of […]

Grand Canyon

Spurred by the opportunity to visit with family and mark another item off of our 101 list, we finally made the drive (including Fitz!) over to the Grand Canyon (South Rim). The 4 hour 30 minute drive was pretty uneventful and Fitz slept in the back the whole way. We stayed in Tusayan, minutes away […]

Cabo San Lucas

Almost every year my Mom and I go on a trip some place awesome for her birthday and to get some Mom and daughter time, especially since we don’t see each very often. This year we went to Cabo san Lucas, Mexico and stayed at the Sirena del Mar (Welk Resort). This place was super […]

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 […]

An Underwhelming Visit to the Strip

Nick and I ventured to the strip yesterday with Travelzoo vouchers in hand for a new sports  exhibit at the Luxor called SCORE! Thank goodness for the discounted price. But I’m getting ahead of myself. We parked at Bellagio and checked out the latest flower decorations inspired by Chinese New Year. It was a pretty […]

Lombardi’s at Planet Hollywood/Miracle Mile Shops

After dropping off my Mom and Grams at the airport, Nick and I took advantage of already being downtown to stop at the Miracle Mile Shops to pick up the 2012 Swarovski snowflake ornament (an annual tradition of ours).  While we were walking around the mall, we worked up an appetite and decided to stop […]

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 […]
