we interrupt your regularly scheduled program...

i know that you probably thought you'd come here today to find me celebrating the steeler victory and subsequent home field game against the jets in the AFC championship game.  i know you clicked here thinking that you'd get a good chuckle at my ridiculous fanaticism, or at least some decently cool (although wildly amateur) steelers images about how they wanted it more and whatnot, but....

i interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you those breaking news:

my family currently consists of 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog.  somewhere around july 23rd you will be able to change that number to 3 kids.  yep.  we're having a baby. 

so as much as i would love to fill your screen with images of black and gold today, i'm uber-pleased instead to share this joyful news.  we've been sitting on the news for a bit, and we finally shared it with our church yesterday and now with all of you today.  i hope you'll rejoice with us in this incredible blessing: a new member of our family, and a new member of steeler nation (sorry, had to work that in there somewhere). 

i hope you are finding your life as blessed and richly abundant as i am.  peace to you. 

(and on this MLK day, how about we end with a quote from the great man himself)...

"i love you.  i would rather die than hate you."
(taken from a sermon called "loving your enemies")

That's awesome news...thanks for sharing! How exciting! Congrats to all the Milinoviches! July is a great month for a birthday. Just ask Lauren (13th)!
On a completely separate note, we were wondering if Cade's been saying 'punch the Jets' yet?!

thanks to all of you! i really appreciate the fact that you keep reading and following our family adventures. you're the best.

@greg: the jets should be fine unless they punch cade's favorite player in the nose (which is what the ravens did). but if so, they better watch out! he's a beast!

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out there...you make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
