Anti-Dad Bod

A couple of years ago, a British research firm reported that the average weight gained during pregnancy is 14 pounds — by the soon-to-be father.  Couvade syndrome is a condition where the father-to-be experiences pregnancy symptoms like weight gain, nausea, insomnia and mood swings. It’s actually rather common. In fact, [...]

Threes Are The New Twos

The term “THREEnagers” is often overused in our household to characterize our twin toddlers’ behavior. Threenager: A person, 3 years old, possessing the attitude and demeanor of a teenager. We’ve all heard of the terrible twos and all the drama of the new-found independence of toddlers. But for us, the threes have [...]

90 Miles Pa’ Cuba

With the new wave of airlines getting the green light by the DOT and Cuba OK’ing U.S. commercial air carriers to fly into Cuba, I’m off to Cuba in 2 weeks. Living in Miami and knowing so many Cuban-Americans personally, I know there’s sharply contrasted opinions of whether one should [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]
