Wedding Anniversary Tradition PART SEVEN is a go!

Back in 2007, I got married at the Disney’s Vero Beach resort to my best friend.  In striving to keep our lives less than normal, we established a tradition that, no matter what, we’d celebrate our anniversary together by going to a city we had never been to before together....

NCL Bahamas Cruise Part 2: The Trip to the Bahamas

Continued from: NCL Bahamas Cruise Part 1: Miami Beach, Florida We got on a boat.  Remember that this was going to be our first cruise.  I had been on “booze cruises” in the past – the ones that take you far out enough to gamble legally and then back the...

NCL Bahamas Cruise Part 1: Miami Beach, Florida

For our fourth anniversary trip, Shannon and I took our first ever cruise.  Since Shannon grew up in Georgia (and we weren’t sure about her ‘sea legs’) we opted to start with a simple three night/two day excursion to the Bahamas.  We kicked off the trip but getting a hotel...

The Morning After AND The Morning Before (Photos)

Good morning!  I am enjoying Internet while I still have it before getting on a boat and praying Shannon doesn’t try to throw me overboard.  For those of you playing catch up, today is our four (4) year anniversary.  Since getting married, we promised ourselves that each anniversary would be...

Today is 11/11/11. And here I am in the lobby of our hotel in Miami Beach: Here’s Shannon. Same lobby. It should be noted that SHE is the younger of us. We’re chilling in the lobby before getting a cruise to the Bahamas tomorrow. It will be our first cruise...

The Vegas Vacation Part I: NeonCon & The Tropicana

So how did I wind up in Vegas?  I’ll make this part straight to the point: Wasabi Anime appeared at Gen Con this year. Instead of a Wasabi Anime table in the dealers room, we opted to let the Mint Chocolate Chippies promote during the convention. Gamers, it seems, love...

Washington, DC: Final Day…

Yesterday was our final day adventuring about the nation’s capitol.  The pic above is one of my favorites due to the fact that it is taken from the top of the Washington Monument.  I hadn’t gotten to do that since childhood.  Here’s the rundown of yesterday: THE WORLD WAR II...

Washington, DC: Day Two…

On Friday, Shannon and I began discussing what we wanted to see this time around during our visit to Washington, DC.  She pointed out that she had never visited the zoo.  I pointed out that when I visited the zoo last (circa 1993) I remembered it having “a lot of...

Washington, DC: Day One…

Yesterday was our first day spent in Washington, DC.  We had just visited DC three years ago (on our way to  New York City to get engaged) so we decided to spend time seeing things we didn’t get to see last time.  As a matter of fact, I have visited...
