Goodbye 2016

2016, you’ve been an interesting year to put it nicely. I dislike you for many reasons including taking away some of our precious loved ones and bringing us a demented president-elect. In all seriousness, it’s been a rough year for my family personally and for many of our friends. Each [...]

Approved For The Chase Sapphire Reserve 100K Offer (Unexpectedly)

I was just approved for the Chase Sapphire RESERVE and am way over 5/24 (will explain). I normally don’t blog about specific credit cards as I believe the best credit cards depend on a person’s individual goals. However, last week I walked into a Chase branch to close my Chase Total [...]

Baby Loungin’ Japan

As you all probably already know, last week we went to Japan sans G&O and had a pretty special time just the two of us. Although we missed the girls terribly towards the end of the trip, Japan was a long time coming and I’m grateful DD Mommy and I [...]

All Hail To Our Women

I came across a scientific study today that had me giggling like a school boy inside my head. Many may not know (I didn’t),  there’s a male birth control shot which exists and is nearly 96% percent effective at preventing pregnancy. A study was conducted between 2008 and 2012 in [...]

Cancun Flights At A Laughable Cost

In August I registered for the JetBlue #GoForthWithJetBlue Points Match promotion, which matched my Virgin America points to JetBlue points after one roundtrip flight. I didn’t have any Virgin America points so I did what any travel hacker would do and transferred some points from my SPG account to my VX Elevate [...]

Conflicted Jet Lag Strategy

Let me preface this post by stating that I absolutely understand the following scenarios are first world problem-esque. For those of you that have traveled to long-haul destinations in different time zones, you know that jet lag is REAL and arriving to your final destination exhausted is no fun. Today [...]

How Long Is Too Long?

I booked our highly anticipated Japan trip 11 months ago and we’re a little over a month until we take this ‘dream come true’ trip. First Class Japan Airlines For Dirt Cheap and 6 nights in 5 star hotels for $0 out of pocket, if you want to read the details of the trip [...]

“Cheap” Hamilton Tickets With Amex

  American Express launched a pre-sale last week for tickets to Hamilton, the broadway smash hit. Tickets as low as $199 for June to August 2017 were made available and trust me, $199 is dirt cheap for Hamilton given that tickets cost $400 and up to “get-in”. The catch? You [...]

Chronicles Of A Dad With Two Under 2

Words by long time friend and newly appointed daddy of two, Andres. It’s been 8 weeks since my beautiful daughter joined our precious family. She annointed my wife and I, ‘proud parents’ of two under 2. I expected the addition of a second child to be more work but the scope of how much [...]

Breakfast with Goofy & Pals at the Four Seasons

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief as to how great the weekend was for G&O. Not only because we went to Disney to see all the princesses (they’re obsessed) but what a great find I discovered in tourist trap-haven Orlando. I’ve always heard [...]
