He didn’t screw up (that bad)

We’re doing something big and scary. We’re writing a musical, assembling it song by song, in hopes it finds a home on a stage somewhere one day. While most of the songs Penn writes are parodies (changing the words to someone else’s work) here he’s writing his own. The musical, at this point, will center […]

Valentine’s Day – Gift Giving

When Kim and I first started dating I really went to extremes to get her awesome gifts for Valentine’s Day. But now… after two kids, our gift giving has gotten a bit… stale. Maybe true love is realizing you don’t have to buy big gifts for Valentine’s Day. Maybe true love is giving your spouse […]

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen Diet

So Penn and I challenged ourselves to eat like Tom and Gisele for 24 hours. They have a LOT of restrictions, including: no dairy, gluten, night shades, and coffee. I did slightly better than Penn did, but for real – this diet is hard!
