It’s moving day. The trucks arrive this morning. HASHTAG BITTERSWEET.
8 days until moving day. HAHAHAAAOHMYGAHHHHHHH Do you know what I do a week before moving halfway across the country? I take a trip, peeps! I take a trip to San Jose to give a few talks on…wait for it…STRESS REDUCTION. Yes! That’s right! Let me talk to you about reducing stress in your life […]
This post is sponsored by Bridgestone. I can now officially say their DriveGuard tires are the bomb. We made it through our 10-day road trip alive, folks. And we packed it in – Grand Canyon, Colorado hiking and river-rafting, Sedona energy vortexes and the best restaurant ever. As you can imagine, while spending days on […]
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Today’s our last day in Colorado, and we are headed to Sedona tomorrow. I have to say, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in Colorado – childhood summers in Breckenridge and Estes Park, and time spent in Vail, Aspen, Denver, and Boulder, but this area is by far the most […]
This post is sponsored by Bridgestone. Thank you for making sure we don’t end up on the side of the road in the middle of Arizona. It’s road trip season and the Whoorl family is about to embark on a 10-day trip of epic proportions. A little Grand Canyon action, a little Sedona action, and […]
We are road-tripping to Colorado later this summer, and need a halfway point to stop and explore. Now, incredulous as it might seem, the family vetoed my idea of traipsing the native land and finding a drum circle or something. The nerve! I mean, LET’S BE ONE WITH THE SPIRIT, KIDS. Sadly, I’ve obviously taken my hobby […]
I’m taking a little break this week – heading to the desert for some Fourth of July fun. Wishing you a happy weekend, and I’ll see you next week! photo credit
We’re spending our last day lounging in Palm Springs, but popping in to wish you a smooth post-holiday weekend reentry. I loved seeing everyone all gussied up on Instagram yesterday. Since our families live halfway across the country, we are creating our own holiday traditions, and spending Easter in Palm Springs has become a given. […]
Merry Day After Christmas! We are in Oklahoma enjoying family, eating/drinking our way into a comatose state, and freezing our tushes off. (All of that complaining about our frigid 59-degree Newport Beach winter season? I take it back. It currently feels like -134 degrees here in OKC.) Hey, if you plan on laying low by […]
The past three months have been a bit unusual. Buying and renovating a house is obviously stressful. Joyful and exciting, but stressful. Until we moved last week, D had been leaving around 6am to meet with contractors at the new house, followed by a full day at work, followed by stopping by the house again […]
You all, I don’t even know how to begin this post. Really truly, SO MUCH TO SAY. Let’s talk about my quick trip to New York last week. It was utterly fantastic. I was invited as a guest of Nutrilite to attend a two-day meeting about health, fitness, and supplements. To be honest, I probably […]
This happens to me every summer. The family trips, the barbecues, the long days by the pool…blogging? What’s blogging? I don’t need a blog! I can just plant a garden, grow some tomatoes, and perfect my pasta sauce! Or play tennis with the kids! Or make homemade popsicles! Or read a book in the shade […]
Unlike the majority of the country, I am craving heat this week. Dry desert heat, to be exact. So we are bidding adieu to breezy temps in the 70s and heading into 100+ for the next few days. I can’t wait to relax on a raft with a cold beer in my hand…truly counting the […]
Look at us. Cigarettes hanging out of our mouths on the school grounds. Oh, such rebellious behavior! We’re SO COOL. Part of the reason we are visiting Oklahoma is to attend my 20th high school reunion. How crazy is that? Crotchety. In honor of my high school days, here are 7 things I will do […]
I need to go back right now. Thank you to the Westin Maui for sending us to paradise. I’ll be posting about our trip at Babble starting this week.
