Wito and I arrived in the very balmy state of Oklahoma today. Like SEAR MY FACE OFF WITH A BLOW TORCH balmy. How I managed to endure summers here for 18 years is truly boggling. And what does my family do to combat the heat? We sit around, drinking vodka tonics and wearing holiday reindeer [...]
Photos, videos and a little commentary of our trip to Kauai here. (I WANT TO GO TO THERE.) (AGAIN.)
After an incredibly long red-eye (thank you VERY LITTLE, headwinds) and a near miss of my carefully-orchestrated Overlapping Layover Plan in Phoenix, in which my saintly mother flew with Wito to Phoenix from Oklahoma City to assist in the Official Toddler Tradeoff, we’re home! I’m sorting through six days of photos and videos and receipts, [...]
Being an expert planny planner, I am putting together a list of things to do while in Kauai. I would love any suggestions! This is what I have so far… Restaurants: Beach House Tidepools Caffe Coco Postcards Activities: Zodiac Boat Tours – Na Pali Coast Secret Beach Waimea Canyon Kilauea Lighthouse Drinking cold libations at [...]
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 [...]
Damn, you all have some opinions about The Shopping. And here I was, thinking no one even read this damn blog anymore. After careful thought and consideration, I have gone against the majority vote and decided to return two of the shirts. (No Shopping Mandate is BACK ON, SISSIES! YEAHHHHH.) I am keeping the gray [...]
My lovely family unit is leaving tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn (5:15am! Come join the festivities!) for Charleston, South Carolina. My lovely family unit is very much looking forward to this trip, even if it involves appeasing my son, Mr. Drama, on the airplane all day. This (rather loud) drama is surely a [...]
Wow. That is the cheesiest post title I have ever written. (Although, Zeus? Hera? Where’s the God of Teeth when you need him? and Memories, Light The Corner Of My Mind are additional fine options.) I just don’t know where to begin. I mean, do you all even KNOW ME anymore? No, no, I don’t [...]
BUT, a few photos from my recent trip to Sun Valley are over at Melissa’s Buzz Off column at Alpha Mom today! Go tell her what YOU did for summer vacation…
Enjoying the rest of my summer – see you after Labor Day! (You must visit Sun Valley, Idaho. GO. RIGHT NOW.)
Wow. This road trip has been AWESOME so far. About one hour into the trip, Wito took two bites of my everything bagel and broke out in hives all over his entire body. We are back home at the doctor. Viva la Road Trip!
We’re off!, originally uploaded by Whoorl.
We’re leaving tomorrow morning for a week’s vacation in the home of one of D’s clients. I haven’t prepared one bit. I haven’t packed, I haven’t created a single list (serious travesty), I haven’t thought about what I’m going to wear (we are vacationing WITH D’s clients, which means I have to be Whoorl 2.0: [...]
I had such a fantastic time at Blogher. In a teeny nutshell, I was just so thrilled to be surrounded by smart, hilarious and well-rounded women instead of wiping dookie booty all day. (Can I get an AMEN?) I think my personal high (LOW! LOW!) point of the weekend had to be “dancing” at the [...]
Come take a stroll with me down memory lane. It’s 2:45pm on Saturday. I’ve just run up to my hotel room in an attempt to briefly thaw my corpse-like legs before the next session. I turn on the television set, realize ESPN bowling just isn’t going to hack it and grab the nearest Blogher schedule [...]
