I LOVE Boston.
My daughters first trip home. She is a Massachusetts girl. She loved the cold, the city lights, and her family.
We brought Claire to Southie. She loved it, and with her red hair she fit right in.
The bar in the greatest film of all time - Good Will Hunting
Southie is wicked beautiful.
Everything has a classic vintage authentic beauty.
Claire loves the city lights
We got our Christmas tree this weekend when we got back from Boston... Ah yah we went to the back of the place and picked one out from the discount section. I love it... but it may be a little off centahhhhh. The guy at the shop said the tree-ery or nursery had dubbed it "less than perfect" but for me its perfect. I liked it more than the wicked expensive tree. those wicked pricey ones looked less than perfect to me.
It's totally my family. Beautiful and a little off.
OMG We finally did it!!! WE ARE GOING TO LIVE UNDER THE SEA! That crab from The Little Mermaid was right, we are going to live UNDAHH THE SEA! A hotel off the coast of Tanzania has built a hotel room half underwater! THIS IS INSANE!!
Check out the photos http://travel.yahoo.com/photos/in-pictures-new-underwater-hotel-suite-slideshow/
I would stay there... I feel like peolpe with claustrophobia may have an issue with this place but it looks INSANE.
This makes me feel wicked old...
Dumb and Dumber came out in 1994! What! And they now have a release date to Dumb and Dumber To. Hitting theatres Nov 14th 2014 almost 20 YEARS since the original..
Here is a link to the article talking about the new flick
In 4 days I'll be 31. A lot has changed in 31 years. The most important I feel is my daughter has arrived in my life. I am wicked fortunate, simply blessed, to be raising Claire with an amazing woman. Blessed with a healthy happy daughter. In moments I have felt like I've known Claire for all my life. Like we have known each other before and for a long time. She will look up into her daddy's eyes and speak to me with using no words. It is the most amazing thing in my life.
And one of the most impactfully hard experiences was the loss of both my parents at a young age, my pops at 22 and mom a few years ago. The toughest days were having to see my little brothers experience this. Still to this day, I want to remove all their pain.
Theres been many lessons, not all of them learned, but they are there waiting for me to comprehend and adjust.
I love tea. All kinds, loose leaf, bag ya own, all kinds...
And for my birthday, my woman knows me soooo well, my woman got me this wicked sick loose leaf tea pot.
I've never got to use a loose leaf tea pot and honestly I feel like for me, who is kinda a tea addict, it's better. With loose leaf I'm able to throw a bunch more in the pot and get the tea to have the kick and flavor I like. I'm wicked stoked to have a loose leaf tea pot, my first one. And then the tea the Mrs got me floored me. She found a loose leaf White Chocolate Peppermint rooibos tea. It is one of the best tea flavors I've evahhh had. No joke it competes with that flavor of coffee. It's epic.
All my fellow Tea Pahhhty-ers... I highly recommend getting the White Chocolate Peppermint Tea from Teavana. That store is a haven for Tea lovahs. I'm craving this tea now as I sit here and type. ahhhhhhh its wicked good!
Just a random tip... I love Priceline.com
Not a wicked big fan of the commercials, but seriously I use priceline every time I rent a car. I love bidding.
And the reason I'm suggesting it is because I remember back when I had no idea that the site was legit and a friend recommended it to me. And now its all I use to rent cars. And I just thought with the holidays rolling up, you may be looking.
I'm going home wicked soon. It's been over a year and a half since I've been home. I m wicked happy to get home and go right to Dunkin Donuts for an Iced Coffee. Yes. Oh Yes. I'm so happy for my daughter Claire to get to meet her family for the first time. We have a wicked big family, so big she will nto get to meet everyone, but her family is wicked excited to meet the newest addition to the fam bam. All her cousins are going to teach and guide her in the ways of people from Mass.
Int he news today there was some controversy about the photo of the reporter who hunted a lion... In the photo she is over the dead lion smiling gun in hand. Lion fans are in an uproar, and I see some of what they are upset about... I think the lion is a majestical animal, an apex predator, it's the undisputed king of the jungle (although I think they mostly live on the savannah). But my only gripe is this broad used a gun. Why not use a bow and arrow. Thats a true hunter. And there is my issue with hunting majestic animals, a gun is inappropriate. Get raw, draw out the wild inside and go to the bush with a bow and a bakers dozen arrows. Winner lives. Only the strong survive.
Look past the bad, right into the good.
I have a lot of flaws. And as difficult as it is to address them, I look at my sweet daughter my little baby and understand I am her role model whether I want it or not. I want to be a good honest man for my daughter to grow up around, like I had with growing up around my dad. And it makes me understand I have work to do to get honest to get better and to be a man. My daughter is the most powerful life force and one day when she is older I will sit her down to thank her... thank her for all the love she brought into my life. For her presence is more hope than I ever imagined. A beauty like no other.
Thank God she looks like her mother. Just beautiful.
I have a wonderful woman, a true light in my world. A breath of fresh air in a smog filled planet. And so beautiful when she mothers. She made me discover a new depth to myself. She also made me realize I have this uncanny attraction to her when she is mothering. I used to be the guy who never gave a second thought about what women and their bodies went through when they are pregnant during and after they carry child. But now fully understanding the depth to what a tremendous task it is on not only their mind but their bodies, and she is wicked beautiful doing all of this. I know on air I make wicked chauvinistic jokes, but being wicked serious - Doood my girl is a smoke show she is a wicked hott mom. And guys keep it appropriate or I'll break you off proper. Back to my thoughts, she's given me this vision I did not have before. I am wicked attracted to her. And I know the recovery from giving birth is a difficult one. And its honestly not something I expected to discover about myself but I'm think she looks amazingly beautiful now. Something in my spirit knows shes given so much of herself to bare our child and how she cares and loves for our child, there is something simply irresistable when you mix it with her stunning good looks. I'm a lucky guy.
***She also is one of the best bakers I've evah had the pleasure of experiencing... she makes wicked good choc chip cookies.... I'm wicked lucky.
Claire got to meet her biological grandma this past week. I did not witness it. And its a rare occassion for Claire to be able to experience grandparents for different reasons. Claire's grandparents on my side are dearly departed so she will not get to meet them here. But no matter the differences, I feel like its always a special relationship with grandparents. I truly am sad my parents will never be able to spend time with Claire. I can faintly hear my dad being his boisterious self and making little baby Claire laugh, but that only exists in my mind. So its special Claire had an experience with a grandparent. It may be the only one and may not turn out as we all hope but I'm very thankful it happened. My grandmother Lois was wicked special to me. I miss her gypsy ways to this day. Its an amazingly special way a grandmother can love you. It's wicked reminiscent of a mothers love. Warm and a super welcoming accepting experience. I always felt so loved when I would go to my grandmothers. I knew I was loved. I knew by the way she wanted to meet the people in my life, the way she cared enough to want me to take care of myself, the way she shared her life experiences with me.
