Making the House a Home.

0 comments

As a few of you know from my last post, we’ve recently had a bout with black mold in our kitchen. The last six weeks have seemed like a massive game of rope-a-dope, with me stumbling from one corner of the ring to the next. The good news is that we found a great place

Starting a New Life.

3 comments

There’s nothing harder than picking up the life you’ve grown accustomed to and moving on. There’s also nothing more exciting. I was forced to do this almost twenty years ago as a college student after losing everything I owned in an apartment fire. And I’ve done it again as a husband and father with three

Life or Debt is Spike TV’s new series where Victor Antonio shows families how to get themselves out of debt by operating like a business.  ADRIAN: So. Life or Debt on Spike TV. Brilliant concept, love the execution and my wife and I have watched every episode. Like many other families, we’re always looking for

A Weekend in the Sonoran Desert with Corning Gorilla Glass.

Up until earlier this month, I’m pretty sure that I’d only ever been through Arizona once, which was during our cross-country drive (with a 2-year old, 8-week old and dog), so it was tough to actually stop for a minute and take in it’s full beauty. So in February, when Corning Incorporated reached out to

Buggin’ Out on the Fourth.

This post is sponsored by OFF! ®, but all the opinions are my own. Ever since we left Los Angeles and moved back East, the days are gone where I can count on an almost-arid, sunny ’70-degree day. If you’re not familiar with the (just outside) watershed region of Maryland, the months of June, July and

How Does Your Family Eat Dinner?

3 comments

These days, it could be any night of the week. It’s 6pm, halfway through what I call the ‘witching hour’. I’ve done it all. We went on a walk to the park, we pulled out the play-doh (and put the rock hard nuggets from last week in the trash), built a nostalgic-yet-stupid balsa flyer that

10 Things I’ve Done Wrong as a Stay-at-Home Dad.

1 comment

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a full-time stay-at-home dad for almost six years. There wasn’t one moment in the 90’s, where I sat back on my grody college sofa after pulling a hefty bong rip and thought, ‘Man, I’m really glad that I’m spending all this time and money to get a hearty

Just Strollin’ Along on Father’s Day.

Six years ago, I wasn’t sure what kind of dad I might be. Certainly, I’d had an amazing influence in my own father, as well as my grandfathers and uncles, my father-and-brother-in-law, but as you hold your wife’s hand in the delivery room, I think you’re waiting for that identity to be born (so to
