Men always want to be a woman's first love -

You know that guy, who drives around having a party, singing in his car listening to 70's and 80's music? Well, quite possibly, you've encountered my husband on the road.

So here is our latest home decorating project. Our wedding dress. Out of respect, I suppose it deserves a short story since it has gone through significant surgery.

Yep, I said. Then she got a smile on her face and said that she thought it was actually a great idea.

Ok…so, we've already established what an awesome husband I am for surprising my wife with a scooter for Christmas (see an earlier post if you missed this incredible act of husbandry on my part :-) ). But, sadly, this post is all about how that awesomeness took a little bit of a hit this weekend.
Who knew that you needed a motorcycle license for a scooter??!! Read More
I promised Tracy I would buy her a scooter 7 years ago when we knew we would be moving back to Texas from California. Not the glorified skateboards that you see kids ride in the neighborhood (although that would be quite the sight to see her run around on one of those!) but the kind you see tooling around some island locale...like a mini-motorcycl Read More
