Hockey Makes a Home

Who would have thought? After 112 years, the City of Las Vegas was (finally) awarded a professional sports team, by the NHL of all leagues. To say that critics were skeptical would be an understatement.

Dear Moose

Today marks 6 months since you crossed the rainbow bridge. I wish I could say that I miss you less or that your absence has gotten easier with time, but that wouldn't be true. Your brother Scout misses you very much and still looks for you every day.

Rosslyn is ONE!

On May 22nd, our sweet baby girl turned 1 year old. I can hardly believe it! This has been the quickest year of my entire life - it really seems like yesterday that we went to grab a quick breakfast before heading to the hospital, not knowing that we would be having a baby that day.

Recipe - Instant Pot Shrimp Scampi with Pasta

I am still totally obsessed with the Instant Pot and have been researching and trying new recipes, while also sticking to a few of our favorites. One of those favorites is shrimp scampi. It's unbelievably quick and easy to make and has our entire family (including baby Rosslyn) smacking our lips with delight. 

Las Vegas Snow 2018

It's been a long time since I remember seeing snow in the Las Vegas Valley. In fact, the last time I recall there being a snowstorm was December of 2006. I will never forget that storm, as I was taking the first significant vacation from my job at Nevada State College and traveling to San Diego to play tourist for a week.

Goodbye Moose

Today has been a very rough day at both the Williams and Nicpon households. This morning we had to make the very difficult decision to say goodbye to our beloved Moose. Although I am overcome with sadness, I know that this was the best thing for him. His health had started to decline over the last few months, and over the last 2 weeks had become worse.

Robot Life (Enhanced)

I've officially been on holiday time since December 15th @ 5:01pm. I ended my last day of work before vacation by taking my team from UNLV to Giordano's for deep dish pizzas and libations.

Aside from work and post-Thanksgiving holiday prep, I've been anxious for Christmas Day to roll around. Rosslyn and Teri have some great gifts and surprises in store for them!

Car Seat Safety

A couple of weeks ago, here in Las Vegas, a 9 year old was killed and their 6 year old sibling was seriously injured while riding in their minivan. All of the seats had been removed from the back - so not only were the kids not in child safety seats, they were not restrained AT ALL. I immediately felt sick to my stomach when I saw this on the news. This is a tragedy that was totally preventable.

Helpful Books For Dad

I wanted to share a couple of book titles that have been invaluable to me as a new father. Both are written by Armin A. Brott: The Expectant Father: The Ultimate Guide For Dads-To-Be and The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year.

Personal Update / Anxiety

Hello Everyone!

I know it's been awhile since we've posted, so I wanted to check-in and let you all know how things are going.

First of all, let me say that I am not the best about sharing personal stuff and I am even worse at self-care.

Hello Mint SIM!

Teri and I recently had a very disappointing experience with T-Mobile. We both were 10+ year customers with grandfathered plans that were well below September 2017 new customer prices. Our problems began when we attempted to consolidate our separate phone plans to a 2-line family plan. I was told by customer service that it would be 20 dollars per month more than my Grandfathered rate of $65/month, so about $85/mo total, to add Teri to my existing plan. No problem, right?

Warmest Robot + Warmest Human

As you all know, I have recently revamped the blog and transitioned from Blogger to Squarespace. While I was making that transition, Teri had discussed her interest in starting a blog of her own to publish product and restaurant reviews, chronicle her adventures in motherhood, and showcase her vast knowledge of craft beers and breweries.

Final Countdown To Baby Rosslyn

Less than 2 months to go until Rosslyn, my first and only daughter, is born. I feel like Teri and I have done a great job preparing for her arrival. I don't know if I'll ever be 100% prepared, but I think that's how this sort of thing is supposed to be.
