Steven's Online Birthday/Christmas Wish List

It is official! I have found a very nice website that you are able to view pictures of what Steven would like for his birthday/Christmas as well as reserve items for purchase. The item should at that point be removed from the list, that way everyone knows what has been purchased. "Wishpot" lets you add products from anywhere on the web  You can share items and lists with friends and family and they can reserve items for purchase.
Whenever you share a list with your friends they will be able to view the list even if they are not yet registered for Wishpot. Anyone you share a list with or list URL will be able to view and reserve items from off your list!

I have a number of items on the list, ALL of which can be bought at either Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Target! Also on the side of my blog is a wish list widget which shows you everything that is on Steven's list. Just click on the widget to take you to Steven's wish list.

Please let me know if you have any difficulties. It might be something on my end that I can fix.

Also, if you click on the title of this blog it will take you to Steven's list.

UF vs. LSU in Skybox....WOW!

Never in all my years of attending Florida football did I ever imagine I would end up in a sky box at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to watch a game. Just the fact that my family has season tickets was something in itself that I felt lucky and privileged to have. I have always looked up towards those sky box seats and said to myself "I wonder what it feels like"? Or when it was REALLY COLD, REALLY HOT, or POURING RAIN, looking up at the sky box and saying "Man....would I love to be in a sky box right about now". But last night was a night to remember for the rest of my life. We watched the entire game from the second to last sky box on the end and loved every minute of it. We had high top tables, four rows of cushioned chairs, TWO 42in flat screen TV's, a kitchen, our own bathroom, and all you can eat food in the lobby for the entire game. There was a desert buffet, popcorn machine, and a dinner buffet which included a carving table, salad, cheese topped mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pasta salad, and terriaki chicken strips with dipping sauce. Plus a beverage table with tea, lemonade, and soft drinks. All of this at your disposal whenever you wanted. Plus there were people working there that were always asking if there was anything they could get you, or if you needed anything...opening doors for you...even someone on the elevator just to push the button for you. I guess you could say that this was the high roller version of the concession stand. Even if the gators lost to LSU, this was one of the best experiences of my life!
