VACATION PLANNING? I have binders full of vacations.

Nothing to see here: just a girl and her midliners making a vacation binder full of budget estimates, itineraries and park maps. Raise your hand if you are a binder kind of girl? Page dividers? Multicolored midliners for further clarification? Spreadsheets??? Oh baby, right? On a related note: Who here has been to Universal Studios in Florida with the fam? Share your best tips and … Continue reading VACATION PLANNING? I have binders full of vacations.

D.C. in 4 Hours: Walking the National Mall

We only had about four hours to spend exploring Washington D.C. and we were traveling by foot the entire time. According to my pedometer, we put in over 10,000 steps in D.C. mostly just walking the National Mall. We fully intend to come back to D.C. and stay for a weekend at least so that we can do it right because there is so much … Continue reading D.C. in 4 Hours: Walking the National Mall

Aloha Friday: Where Would You Go?

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d … Continue reading Aloha Friday: Where Would You Go?

Finishing What I Started: Vacation Photos

Well picking up where I left off (or um, where MM left off…) here are the rest of the pictures from our vacation… This will show pictures on the road, at the hotel and at Storyland… The wading pool at the hotel was literally like 1 foot deep, maybe less – perfect for my little not quite swimming 2 year old. This was probably about … Continue reading Finishing What I Started: Vacation Photos

Sleep-Deprived Travelers Say The Darndest Things.

I go away for vacation and come home to 27 spam comments and over 500 new blog posts in my Google Reader. And you know, life, laundry and the purse full of reciepts to balance. Stuff. But I don’t want to talk about stuff. I want to talk about Funny Stuff. Funny Stuff that I noticed spilling out of my mouth during the long hours … Continue reading Sleep-Deprived Travelers Say The Darndest Things.

Lookin Fine by 2009: Week 2

Well this update shouldn’t require much effort seeing as I didn’t put much effort into the past week. Sure Monday-Thursday were mostly honky dory I’m guessing with all my “I drink water now” and “I eat healthy meals.” But then “I went on vacation.” And I ate like an ass hat – if ass hats eat whatever they want anytime they want. I was on … Continue reading Lookin Fine by 2009: Week 2
