They Don't Call It the Red Eye for Nothin'

srredeye



If your husband tries to talk you into flying the red-eye with your kids at the end of a family vacation, don't fall for it.  He may try to reassure you that your kids will sleep on the plane, and all will be fine.  But trust me, it will be anything but fine.  And the only person who will be sleeping on the plane will be your…

A Polar Vortex Punch of Reality

Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing.  The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass.  It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all.  But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…

Ended up in the right place accidentally!

Ever make plans to go somewhere, and it doesn't pan out the way you expected? Yet, where you do end up ends up being some how, uh, better? Well, yesterday my sister and niece came over for a visit and our intent was to check out a car show, because car shows are cool, lol. I had no idea it was canceled, so after driving all the way there and seeing the location deserted, I had the bright idea to just go to the Marina and enjoy…

HENNA BLOSSOM | a work in progress (<-- direct link to blog post)

I'm FINALLY sorting through photos from our mini vacation in Florida. After being back home for a week it already feels like ages ago. I think the weather gap makes it even more so.

One of the funny things about going through (my) photos is how many…

Eco-Friendly Luxury

When most people think about staying in a nice hotel, eco-friendly doesn’t exactly come to mind.  Think about all the people taking hot showers, running the air conditioning in their rooms, and watching TV, not to mention washing all the towels and bedding.  It’s mind boggling to think about how much energy is being used.  But, believe it or not, there are hotels that not only care about offering comfortable amenities and convenience to their guests, but care about our planet as…

Single (temporary) momhood crazyness.

      As I sit here at a library computer typing I am thinking about how crazy the last three weeks have been while my husband has visited family in China .   I am also very grateful he will be home soon and I will no longer be single handedly taking care of our three childrens.   The day after Christmas my husband left to visit his family.  Since then I have been trying like crazy to keep up with our three very active children.   F is 8 yrs old and a loving  sensitive boy.   F is also very…

** Hot flashes and sea sickness don't mix well with a pirate ship cruise.

Our No-Media Family Vacation (Complete with campfire recipe!)

Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place). What I discovered on this trip was that three days of no Facebook updates, no check-ins, no Tweets and no notifications can actually be…
