Almost everyone I know has some sort of bucket list. Whether it’s a mental list or you’ve actually taken the time to write it all out, you probably have one too. I’ve imagined a lot of things in life I want to do, and like most, they involve a lot of travel! I’ve never been … More GOALS: Visiting Every NHL Arena
It started a long time ago. I was very young when I realized that Halloween was my favorite holiday. My grandma has decorated our house from top to bottom every year with Halloween decorations! She even used to throw a big Halloween party for all the kids. Maybe its because I’m a true performer at … More October is My Fave: Halloween and Hockey!
IT’S CLAYTONS BIRTHDAY! Honestly, I get more excited for his birthday than I do for my own. I love nothing more than planning out the perfect gifts for him!

After watching game 1 of round 2 I think it is safe to say that … More Nashville Predators Looking Like a Well Oiled Machine
