The Magic of Children – Book Review 

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I really love the variety of books I’ve found at my church’s book swap table. The book “the Magic of Children – Beautiful Writings About the Wonderful World of Children” immediately caught my attention.

William is Sixteen Weeks – Four Months 

The description of what to expect this week is right on for William. He’s always been a baby who likes to grab out at and hold things, and he’s especially been holding his bottle when given the chance lately.

Scouts Day at Church and Scouting Changes 

It took me a bit longer to get William settled down so we could go to church today. I had debated bringing him into service with me, but as he’d been crying so hard on and off from teething pain (even after trying Infant Tylenol and teething toys), so I put him into the church nursery. As a result, I missed the opening candle lighting by a Girl Scout. The special service featured local Cub and Boy Scouts including Tim, who leads a Boy Scout pack and his son, Riley, a Boy Scout.

San Jose Beer Walk and Clandestine Brewery Opening 

Every once in a while I’ll go and enjoy something in real time more than I’ll take lots of photos to remember it. This weekend Matt and I joined by our friends Steve and Cora attended two events this weekend in which I did just that, in fact, most of the photos for this entry were taken after the event. The first event we went to was the Downtown San Jose Beer Walk as part of the SJ Beer Week 2018.

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes – Product Review 

The Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes is a product I’ve meant to review for a long time. It was a gift from Katie for my shower, one of the items on my registry. Both my aunt and cousin had recommended Baby Einstein products as wonderful ones to have for a growing baby.

Roman Reigns and Monday Night RAWs – Throw Back Thursday

Three years ago Matt and I saw Wrestlemania in San Jose. We had attended the Monday Night RAW the following night and they had announced another RAW show in August. When it was finally our time to get seats after waiting in the long line, I joked we’d be in the last row. Matt was more optimistic, in fact he was pretty confident Roman Reigns would enter right near our section. It turns out he was right.


We had an amazing time at the show. The lineup featured a tribute to Rowdy Roddy Piper who had just passed on, and some other fantastic moments including having Seth trash talk his rival and the whole audience using their cell phones to be the “firefly” effect for the Wyatt Family’s promo that  I put in a collage.

Matt and I  had proudly wore our Suplex City San Jose Shirts to that first RAW. Unfortunately, that was the shirt of Roman Reign’s main rival. While we both cheered on many wrestlers, Roman was the only one Matt mentioned in our wedding vows, that he would cheer on Roman with me.

So as a major fan, when we went to RAW another time, I made sure to wear Roman’s shirt and stickers on my face, in case he came down our section a second time, which he did.



Our friends were amazed we were two for two with this. Matt had even joked he should buy a Powerball Ticket, but neither of us has.

On Monday RAW will again come to the SAP Center. With a new job for me that I can’t  leave early from and William, there is no way for us to attend. Still, I look forward to bringing him to wrestling events in a few years when he can appreciate them.
