And Off We Go

The toddler and I are off today to visit my dad and my family.

The only suitcase I had was about 10 years old and was about to fall apart. I decided to buy a suitcase that would stand out. Unfortunately, all the suitcases were black or blue. Except for the one I picked. Yes, I know that it’s a bit “loud,” but I wanted to be able to find it easily…


I don’t know if/how often I will be able to post while I’m gone. A few weeks ago, I started a blog on tumblr, and I will try to update it with short photo posts, which are easier to do than posts for this blog. So check out my tumblr blog if you are interested in what we are up to.  I also hope to post on this blog a few times. Plus, hubby has agreed to do some guest posts for me. It’s really my way to keep tabs on his eats. I’m a bit worried that he may resort to less than healthy foods, and showing some of his eats on the blog will hopefully motivate him to make healthy choices! Won’t it, Hubby?!!!?!! Winking smile

Be well,
Andrea

  1. I think the whimsy factor is pretty high on that suitcase! And it should stand out. Well done.

    I love the simplicity of your other blog. I am so totally jealous. I love simplicity. Wonder if I could figure it out. (????)

  5. Please enjoy the trip as much as possible. I'll miss you both terribly, and I'll do my best to carry on the opposite of usual; for instance, cook and do laundry to name a couple examples.

  11. When you told me you were visiting your family I completely forgot where they lived! Here I was thinking they were close by. I'm a bad blogger friend :( But anyway, glad the flight was ok (I read your post) and I only wish I could sleep like that on a plane!! I can never sleep on planes, unless I'm exhausted, which I suppose an 11-hour flight would make me....
    Can't wait for some hubby guest posts!!
    Oh, and I figured out how to make movies with iMovies! Thanks again.

  13. Have fun on your trip, Andrea! I'll be checking out your tumblr. I understand how you feel about your husband's eating habits - when I went to China, my husband wrote a few guest posts and ended up featuring fried chicken and bacon-wrapped fatties.

    Men.
