That button is genius, right? Thanks for the nice comments about my belly, by the way. I have to admit my favorite was an incoming link about how good I looked for 19 months pregnant. 19 MONTHS pregnant? Hell, I LOOK FANTASTIC. The belly is definitely popping, which is perfectly coinciding with my incessant need [...]
I almost forgot! The winner of the Ella’s Kitchen giveaway is…. #142, JAB! Your Ella’s Kitchen smoothies will be on the way shortly!
A perfect surprise on a rainy Friday evening. Have a wonderful weekend!
If I had to pick one food item that has made my life with a picky and active toddler infinitely better, it would be the smoothies from Ella’s Kitchen. My friend Lauren, who works for Ella’s Kitchen, introduced me to these little wonders a couple of months ago and Wito has been hooked ever since. [...]
Hello! Quite a lengthy break I took there, but trust me, you wouldn’t have wanted to hear the ample amounts of complaining coming out of my pie hole. I’m in the 11th week of of a much queasier pregnancy, although this comes as no surprise to those who follow my Twitter updates. (The benefits of [...]
My bake sale is this Saturday, and I still haven’t decided what to make. Good God, the PRESSURE. I want to make every single item you’ve sent me. The Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies? A sure winner! Cheesecake-Marbled Brownies? Delish! Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats? INTRIGUING. I…I just don’t know right now. Must [...]
Like a Good Preschool Mother, I have offered my services for an upcoming bake sale. Hmmm. What do I make? I would totally do the pumpkin brownie thing, but I don’t think the consistency will hold up well. (They want the items in plastic bags tied up with ribbons.) Do you have an absolutely fantastic [...]
As you can read here, I want to make out with this eco-friendly lunchbox. Dear FTC, I was not compensated to write this post by the Goodbyn makers nor did I receive the product for free. In fact, I used my hard-earned money to buy it at Amazon. (Qualifies for free super saver shipping WAHOOOO.) [...]

I tweeted about my dinner last night and some peeps wanted the recipes, so here I am! With recipes! I aim to please. This is actually fantastic because it’s the perfect time to tell you about what keeps me from entering the Land of Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches for Dinner Every Night on a [...]
Dear Father, It seems your grandson has the answer to your question. Love, Whoorl (Wito was not coerced into making the following statements. It was all from the heart, papa.)
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned my dad’s glorious candy drawer on more than one occasion here at whoorl. Earlier this week, I received the greatest honor imaginable when my father asked me to accompany him on a candy-drawer-stocking expedition to the grocery store. I jumped at the chance to learn proper candy-stocking skills from the [...]
Nothing makes me happier than watching Wito eat an ice cream cone. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Dear Dad, I know my trip home was completely last-minute and that you have had an extremely full plate with the new house. (Which is absolutely beautiful, by the way. Wowza.) However, I am a little disappointed in the candy drawer. I know what you are thinking, dad – people would kill for that candy [...]
Soooo, maybe you’ve noticed some recent photos of bloggers holding a paper cutout of the Quaker dude. This might seem a little strange (um, yes), so here’s the situation. Quaker has challenged 25 bloggers to get as many people as possible to post pictures of themselves with the Quaker Oats Man on Quaker’s Facebook page [...]
