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. 

A Minivan?!

Like many others, I swore that I would NEVER drive a minivan. They are so not cool, right?! Well, I am not ashamed to say that I changed my mind and I don't regret it one bit.

Walmart Curbside Pick-Up

I hate to say it, but grocery shopping is the bane of my existence. It's a necessary evil, because obviously we need food in the house, but I absolutely hate having to go to the store.

I think part of my hate is due to how crowded the stores near us always seem to be. Initially, we were going to a nearby Smith's because they have a great deli and decent prices. However, our particular location seems small, the parking lot is a mess and it is always jam packed full of people, no matter what time we went. I would always try to avoid the shopping or put it off as long as possible because it annoyed me so much. 

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.

OpenTable Affiliate Referral Links - Part 1

Teri recently applied and was accepted as an OpenTable Affiliate, so that we can provide the convenience of online OpenTable reservations to our readers. What we received is a useful branding press kit, some branding requirements, and the credentials and URIs for accessing a RESTful API. I love the opportunities to work on my Python skills, as well as learn new things, but I'm a bit baffled why OpenTable doesn't offer a simple WYSIWYG widget builder for affiliates that are restuarant gurus not programmers. Obviously, the RESTful API is awesome for programmers and the Warmest Robot, but the Warmest Human thought it was a bit much to ask of a non-technical user. With a widget builder, OpenTable Affiliates could build a referral link that meets branding requirements without having to ask an INTP for help. I've decided to help others on the net by posting my method and code in series of articles.

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.
