Jordan's Picks

Update: After a hard-fought NCAA tournament, it ended up that Maggie beat me in the picks game. They are fun to do. We've decided to do one for the NBA playoffs, as well and our brackets look quite different. We'll keep you updated!

Maggie's Picks

New Baby Pics!

Mag went to the doctor's last week because she wasn't feeling very well. Turned out she was a little bit dehydrated and last time we went to get the ultrasound, the baby didn't cooperate and they couldn't get a good picture of his heart. This time, he was in a good position, his heart is healthy and we got the news that he is in the 50th percentile in height. That means he's going to be a shorty. We were secretly hoping that he would be blessed with lots of height, but then came to the realization that both Maggie and I are 3 feet tall, so there was little hope for that. Anyway, enjoy the pics!

Sara Bareilles "Love Song"

Check it out. It's catchy and I think a lot of people will like it. Her song consists of the first 4:24 then there is some random song after it. First 4:24 is Sara Bareilles.

New Artist Spotlight

Okay, so maybe it won't be exactly just one artist every month, but whenever I feel like it! Here is a new one that maybe a lot of you haven't heard of. Her name is Sara Bareilles and her music is really good and catchy. I'll post a YouTube video of one of her more famous songs. Check her out if you get a chance.


So, the biggest tournament of them all has arrived and starts today. For all of you who haven't filled out a bracket, where have you been? We should do a Blog-Wide tournament to see who picks the best. I know it's a little late to get it started off right, but there is still 2.5 hours before the first game.

Anyway, here is a link to a printable bracket you can use. Maggie and I do it and compete against each other. She usually wins, but hopefully this will be a break-out year for me. Good luck!

Jack Johnson "Better Together"

This has been one of Maggie and my favorite songs since we first heard it. Another good thing about Jack Johnson is that he sounds awesome live. No fakeness here and no lip-syncing.

Artist of the Month

As the news of our baby boy has come and gone, I decided to do something new. I figured since I'll have to introduce my son into the world of music, I might as well start now. So, I'll be doing an artist of the month. If you have suggestions, you certainly can throw them my way, but there will always be at least one band/musician that I feature. This month's feature is one of my favorite artists to listen to for sure. He just came out with a brand new album called "Sleep Through the Static," and has also produced, "Brushfire Fairytales" and "On and On". He is listed as a Rock artist on iTunes, but I would disagree with that, though it is hard to put him in any category. All I know is that he is smooth, easy to listen to, and his songs will forever be etched in my head. If you haven't heard him, or if you haven't heard him for a while, give him a chance. Even though he's gotten a ton bigger in the last couple of years, his music is still the same as it was before anybody knew him. I dig it.

Gender Party Video

Here's a little clip of what happened last night. It was pure chaos but a lot of fun. The clip is kind of long, but the first 20 seconds are the really fun part.

The Gender is Finally Revealed!

We were able to finally reveal the gender of the baby and it's nice not to have to keep that secret anymore.  We had all of our siblings either on phone or by computer and had a lot of fun having everybody be there for the announcement.  
If you missed it, here's a picture to let you know what the baby is.
