Monthly Archives: April 2014

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

The month of April has been a big one for me in terms of blogging. I’ve been participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge, and it has been quite an experience! Cranking out 30 posts in 30 days seemed nearly impossible, but here I am on Day 30, and this will be my 30th blog post. I did it!

Because I’ve been writing so much about travel this month, I’m going to step outside my niche for a bit to join Paige from A Dose of Paige, Kendra from Simply {Darr}ling, and Ange from Hairspray & Highheels for a linkup celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of Mean Girls. I quote this movie often and usually watch it when I’m sick. As a matter of fact, I’m watching right now. A girl’s gotta have a fallback movie, am I right? So fetch!

I’ve learned some important lessons from this movie, such as what is and is not appropriate Halloween attire. Apparently, anything goes.
I’ve also learned that the “cool mom” is really just an annoying, insecure woman trying her hardest not to age gracefully.
Even the most innocent of comments can be turned into something ugly.
Being a mean girl makes you feel icky.
It makes your friends feel icky, too. It may take you a while to realize that their anger is justified, though.
But if you’re really lucky, those friends will still be there for you when you hit rock bottom. You’ll love those friends forever.
Happy Mean Girls Anniversary! …and don’t forget.

Three Places

Three Places

This week the lovely Bonnie of A Compass Rose offered up an excellent writing prompt for Travel Tuesday, so I’m going to play along. The instructions are simple: “Share three places… the place you have been that you have loved the most, the place you cannot wait to visit and something about the place youContinue Reading

Newsflash: I’m an ISTJ!

Newsflash: I’m an ISTJ!

Those who know me IRL will not be surprised to hear that I scored as an ISTJ on several different Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator tests that I obsessively took one after another after another. Hey, I told you up front with those four little letters that I’m a bit odd. The Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator is “a psychometric questionnaireContinue Reading

I’m having a hard time sitting still long enough to write this post today.

This is Christopher Wiegand’sContinue Reading

Daydreaming: Island Getaway

Daydreaming: Island Getaway

I’ve been on quite a few trips lately, and they all have had one thing in common: the destinations are full of culture and history. I’ve definitely enjoyed each one of them, but lately I’m craving something a bit different. I want to run away to an island. I’m not talking just any island, either.Continue Reading

As If for the First Time

As If for the First Time

Travel has a way of making everyday things seem less ordinary. Ice cream is so much better after a day spent at the beach with your family. Some of my favorite memories from my teenage years are of my family’s annual trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama, and the ice cream shop we’d visit each time.Continue Reading
