*Update 9/14: The Peabody Hotel was purchased by Hyatt this year and rebranded. No more ducks, you guys! No more ducks. šŸ™ You can still find the original in Downtown Memphis.* Oi. Guys. Just oi. Hubs and I are in work survival mode: he in whatever fun is to be had of Pharmaceutical Reverse Logistics (that is a real industry, honest) and I in launch land! You guys! I’ve been working on a new venture which I am so excited about I can hardly keep it contained…but I will. Shhh. It’s a secret. After a week filled with navigating the inner workings of filing S-corps and saying good bye to a dear family cat, Dan treated O and I to a much needed staycation. It […]

My husband and I went to Naples for our anniversary this year. It’s such a beautiful area! We were so blessed with a wonderful trip. The beach on the Gulf Coast was so much more relaxed and kid friendly than the beaches here on the Atlantic side. O was able to play in the water without the constant panic attack that a massive wave would knock us both over.

Public transportation is dismal in most areas of Florida outside the major cities. The area is serviced by Route 30 of the Winter Haven Area TransitĀ (W.H.A.T.)Ā and the Citrus Connection as of this writing. Orlando […]

And…we’re back! What an amazing trip! You guys, we took our Tardis to Cardiff. I don’t think I will be able to travel any other way every again. I’m joking of course. Doctor Who is kind of a big deal in our house, so one of the things we set out to do this trip was a detour to Cardiff, Wales to see the Doctor Who Experience (DWE). Secretly, ever so secretly since most people make a face of disgust when the topic of “Torchwood” comes up, I was also sort of excited to see Cardiff Bay where a lot of the shots for the series were filmed. The giant phallic mirrored thing was surprisingly not as giant as it looked on TV. Now on […]
