The Morning Shave

There’s ‘poop in the water’ at America’s dirtiest beaches. – It’s ok for the fish to do it, but when there are human feces in the water, something is wrong. Many stories are being published about people catching horrible diseases while swimming in contaminated water with open cuts on their body. Be careful out there!

The One Thing You Should Always Do a Week Before Your Flight. – I’ve experienced changes to my itinerary numerous times before flying. Your seat assignment can change, the departure time can change, or they can completely cancel your flight altogether. It pays to log in every so often to check on your reservations to ensure nothing has changed.

2 hotel cards you may not know exist. – I have no desire to hold the first one and use up a spot on my credit. The second, I’ve had both the personal and business versions for years. They give enough points each year to offset the annual fee and the ability to earn free nights each year based on hitting $10,000 in spend.

50 States of Bucket List Adventures. – Although many states are pretty far down on my list of places to go, each state offers something unique that you should experience at least once in your lifetime. For example, Alabama has NASA Space Camp (for kids and adults) and Georgia’s Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island (where they’re currently filming scenes for the next season of The Walking Dead).

How to Host Weekend Guests Without Losing Your Cool. – Now that we’ve moved to Nashville, one of the hottest US destinations, we have plenty of friends and family that want to visit. These are some great tips to ensure both you AND your guests have a great time (and stay friends afterward).
