I Ate Me Some Ice Cream Bread

Ice Cream Bread

I remember when I was a teenager and I’d do some really crazy, out-of-control things. No, not drinking. Not smoking. Not drugs. Nope, none of any of that. I was way too goody goody for that. But when I got together regularly with my friend Andrew (yeah, the only Andrew I ever knew growing up, […]

Nintendo Sent Us a Big ol’ Bucket Full o’ Color

#PlayNintendo Nintendo

As a blogger, I’m always getting all sorts of neat mystery packages sent to my house. Sure I get loads of boxes packed with movies, games or gadgets that I need for blog post reviews. But there are plenty of days I get boxes that I have no clue what’s inside. Yeah, the UPS guy […]

Free Moana Coloring Pages and Activity Sheets


I’m pretty excited for Disney’s next animated tale Moana. Despite what some people think, this is not the story of the sassy redheaded grandmother from Who’s the Boss? (Yeah, I’m looking at you, Melissa and Amy.) Uh uh. Moana is a colorful tale of a young woman on a sea-fairing journey full of adventure, monsters […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Obviously


I am so ready to be hooked again. Hooked on a feeling and hooked on Marvel’s most entertaining “heroes” to hit the big screen: The Guardians of the Galaxy! I absolutely was blown away (in a really really really good way) by the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel Studios completely hit that one out of […]

The Impractical Jokers $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway


Going to work used to be a deadly experience for me. I was in my 20s working for a monthly magazine about comic books, video games and pop culture. The bulk of the staff was guys. All of us big fanboys (a.k.a. geeks) pretty fresh out of college. It was a fantastic time but I […]

I Made Art By Gluing a Jigsaw Puzzle Together

jigsaw puzzle

I love a good jigsaw puzzle. Was obsessed with them as a kid and am happy to see my kids are following suit. Next to Family Movie Night, my favorite activity is sitting around a table with Allie and the boys just working on a puzzle. At least it was until I met this bad […]

NCAA Football Wins Big With the Grooming Crowd

#GroomingGameStrong Game Strong

No bones about it. Football is my absolute favorite sport. Whether it’s college or pro, any time two teams face off on the Grid Iron, you just can’t help but have an awesome time! Now I may have gone to a college that didn’t have a football team (Shout out to SUNY Binghamton!), that doesn’t […]

Win an NFL TeenyMates Quarterback Gift Set

NFL Teenymates

I love, love, love this time of year. Fall is most definitely my favorite season and not just because the leaves change color and the temperatures cool down. Uh uh. It’s because everything moves into full-on NFL mode! Sundays are no longer “chore days” or even the most feared day of the week, since it […]

The X-Men Apocalypse Earth-Shattering Giveaway ($70 value)


Nobody, but nobody does giant belt buckles better than supervillains. King of them all? Yeah, that’d be the X-Men’s foe Apocalypse. In the comics and cartoons, this mega-powerful, evolutionary-based baddie always looked mega cool and proudly brandished a ginormous “A” belt buckle everywhere he went. Seriously, how can you not be distracted by that? The […]

The Pixie Dust is Flying Over at Netflix

#StreamTeam Netflix

Disney is pretty darn special. Sure there’s Mickey, Minnie, Goofy (my mom’s favorite!) and the gang, but for me, it’s more about the non-core Disney properties. Marvel. Star Wars. The Muppets. In the hands of the House of Mouse, some of my favorite characters have really reached new heights. I already love all the Netflix-exclusive […]

Some Real Hair-Raising Advice for 20-Year-Old Me

Hair FutureYou

Time Travel hurts. If you think too much about it, you’ll end up pulling your hair out. Regardless, I still love me a good time travel story whether it’s the whole Back to the Future trilogy, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure or even X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now while I can’t head back in […]

Win $25 in My Just Because Giveaway


I’ve taken a slight break from giveaways lately not because I don’t like them. I definitely do and I know my faithful readers (that’s you!) do too. I’ve just been uber busy of late with my day job, traveling a lot. I have a few big ones planned for the near future but for now, […]

5 Things I Hate About Flying


I travel a fair amount for work each year. I’m regularly hopping on a plane from Newark, NJ to places like Scottsdale, Arizona. Seattle, Washington.  Orlando, Florida. Chicago, Illinois. Even out of the country to areas like Toronto or England. I enjoy flying. I’ve never been afraid of it and I actually enjoy the time […]

Grooming 101: My Kids Think I Stink

#GuysGroomToo Grooming

According to my kids, I stink. No, I didn’t send them to bed without any supper. Didn’t take away their Nintendo privileges. And certainly didn’t make them go outside and get some fresh air. Uh uh. My kids say I stink and they mean it literally. We’re talking grooming issues here, people. Apparently I sweat. A […]

The Super Secret Code My Wife’s Kept From Me for Years


Relationships always have their mysteries. That’s what keeps things exciting, right? Well, I’ve been married 18 years now and I still haven’t fully cracked the secret numerical code my wife speaks in. She uses it with her sisters, some of her friends and especially her father. For years I’ve heard her drop a hint here or there. […]
