These Are Our Adventures

I knew that would make you click.

As i’m gearing up for an update on our baby making thing or whatever it is we have going on, I thought I’d toss out a few things that came across my radar that touch on that topic.

It’s not a tuma!

This is a link to an article about a pregnant man.  And this is another article about the same people.  Now before you click, I must warn your innocent eyes that there are all kinds of particulars about this situation that may create opinions in you about these total strangers.  Not to mention some possible crazy paraphernalia on the site itself, so click but be warned.

When I saw the headlines I imagined it would be something akin to that crappy farce of a movie up there, but as in many ways, I was wrong.


If you want to spout off any crazies, well….nah, go ahead and spout off, but just remember this is just something that I came across that slighty touches on the larger subject matter at hand.

And breathe.

Catching Up

I know, I know….I’ve been slacking again.  Life is busy, man!  Get off my back!!!

Whoa.  I’m sorry I yelled at you.



My birthday’s come and gone!  Work’s been crazy!  (I think it’s ok to admit I have a job.  We have strict social media stuff there.  On second thought, forget that!)  There was Easter!  And I have an anniversary sneaking up too!

I cam across this post last week on the Stuff Christians Like website and I wanted to share it with you and finally got around to it.  This is one of those things that feels like its written from a place I’m trying to get and it just struck me. 

Here’s the clicky-click!

You Must Read This Article!

I know, I know. 

I don’t post anything for a week and all of a sudden I’m driving you people crazy, right?  I did warn you, though.   

I was going to wait on this article until tomorrow, but I just couldn’t because:

  1. It is so sweet and amazing and inspiring.
  2. After finding in throught D Magazine’s Frontburner, I send it to my Instapaper (the most AMAZING app that I have grown to depnd on too much??), only to find the article blocked by the Dallas Morning News’ paywall.  If you are a subscriber, it was on the front page of Friday’s paper or you have further access to their website.  I do not.
  3. It took many exhausting Google searches to find it elsewhere, and we all know how taxing it is to type things into that search bar and sift through the hits, right?

It’s the story about a eight year old Lewisville boy’s failing eyesight and his trip to the greatest city in the world, and my favorite, New York City.

Please, please just read it….you will be glad you did!

There are other articles out there about this young man, and I haven’t read them yet, and I will, but this story really stuck me.
