Step Back Metro Boomin, This Dad Is Next Up

2017: The year of the dad?

2016 was a wild ride, and not necessarily in the best of ways. This dad producing a straight up FIRE beat on a simple app is just the pick-up we needed to start the year off well. There is absolutely no sarcasm in this post... are you listening, Kanye, Future, Kendrick, etc.?

First Time You Bring Your SO on Family Vacation

It's quite a big step, dontcha think?

There's nothing better than having your favorite people in paradise for a week, but it can get hella awkward, too. It's a big step letting your SO in on your family life, and a big step for your fam as well. How it turns out all rests on you. Here's what you should think about before leaving with bae and your family in tow.

Your BF and your cousin are sharing a room.
If your parents don't let you and your boyfriend sleep in the same room, you'll survive. But it does get kinda awkward when they stick him in a room with your cousin from out of town that he's met all of three times.

You may be used to his snoring, but chances are, others won't be so forgiving. Relax, though, because truth is, dudes bond quickly and relate to each other about guy stuff, so it'll be fine. Probably.

The Walk of Shame becomes more public.
If your parents DO let you share a room with your boyfriend, just remember how awkward the morning after is going to be. Nothing says good morning to your parents like walking up to breakfast together after you just got outta bed with your bf.

Key thing: don't wear your pajama booty shorts or anything borderline scandalous to bed, unless you have every intention of changing before you walk downstairs for eggs and bacon.

A week with no sex won't kill you.
Your body needed a break anyways (who am I kidding?) but save yourselves the trouble and don't do it. I promise your parents don't want to hear you from the next room over and your little cousins staying in the room below you probably prefer not to as well.

Plus, locking the door on vacations gets a little suspicious and you never know when someone's gonna come barging in. After all, it's not "your" room. Buuuuut, if you have to, at least make sure you keep it down (the noise level, obviously).

Your family is crazy.
And that's OK. Something is bound to go wrong, or get a little crazy when you're spending the week with your entire family. Everyone's family has a few nuts (or a lot) and he'll love them for it if he loves you like he says he does.

Involve your SO.
Include your SO, but don't overdo it. He doesn't have to go to the gal's traditional spa day with you. Family game nights on vacation may be a tradition for you, but he's new. Teach him how to play, but don't be mad if he opts to watch the baseball game with your dad instead.

Don't forget about your family.
Just because your SO came along doesn't mean you should only pay attention to them. Only talking to each other all day on the beach will get old and so will sitting in your room alone all night. Your family added a guest, don't make them lose two.

Have fun.
Because for seven straight days you get your crazy family and your lover. It really doesn't get any better. Don't get in stupid little fights or stress over little things. Share a margarita with your mom while your bf shares a beer with your dad. Let him talk about football with your grandpa and play pretend robbers with your little cousins.

Cheers to paradise. Happy vacationing!

Bubby and Pop Pop: On Bumble

They attempt the impossible.

Bubby and Pop Pop are back again, this time they do the impossible: Attempt to set me up on a date using Bumble.

B&P were nice enough to do my swiping for me and try to find me a potential lady friend. I'm a bit chagrined to say that they had a lot more luck than I usually do. Plus, Pop Pop's pick-up lines are unrivaled.

Dad Surprises Son With Birthday Present

His reaction is too cute.

Best surprise ever. This father pretended to forget his son's birthday, making his son very upset because he didn't get a present on his special day. Little did the son know, it was all a trick. When the father tells his son to check the trunk of the car, the kid catches on and realizes he got the ultimate present surprise, a new baseball bat! Ugh, his reaction is priceless... and made me tear up.

Luke Walton Has It Made Next Year

Not to mention his dad is basketball royalty.

New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton has been living large, and his life is about to get larger. For the remainder of the Golden State Warriors season, Walton will be a part of their coaching staff; a staff he was in charge of in place of Steve Kerr for 43 games this season. During that 43 game span, Walton was 39-4.

The ironic part about Luke Walton's hiring is the fact that a monkey could have done his job. A drunken bum could have done it. Sitting on the sidelines watching Steph Curry nail 10 threes a game doesn't look too tiresome.

The fact is, Luke Walton, the son of legend Bill Walton, the former Laker himself, who by default lead the Warriors to a great run, is going back to the city of angels to coach the most famous team in all of basketball.

How can somebody get so lucky to be hired as the head coach of the Lakers at the age of 36? Luke Walton has it made, and he has the opportunity to become a Laker legend. At 36, Walton has a chance to bring the Lakers back to the top, with young talent and high draft picks ahead of the team. Walton will shortly be cruising around in his brand new convertible, sunglasses on, being praised as the new golden boy in LA.

The greatest thing about Walton's life will be that Kobe Bryant is finished his illustrious career. The headlines of the Los Angeles media can focus primarily on the face of Luke Walton. Other than the dump that Kobe left Walton, his life should be pretty smooth.

D'Angelo Russell is a young talented point guard, and in a guard's' game, his game should begin to thrive. There's nothing better for a brand new coach than a couple of recent high draft picks, along with a possible top three pick this summer.

Unfortunately for LA, if that pick is outside the top three, it goes to the Philadelphia 76ers, in which case Luke Walton should just pack his bags and leave the Lakers, because they're going to need all the help they can get, Luke Walton or not.
