Road Trip: Whitehead Style


My sister has been with me for the past couple of days, and it's been so great to have her here. She's been on the Pac Rim trip with OC for the past three months and it' so good to have her back! We are spending the next couple of days driving to Oklahoma and I'm really looking forward to it. Nothing but the road, a rental car, some movies, my swollen ankles and two Whitehead girls who are profoundly great with directions*.   It started snowing today, and we're expected to get about 4 inches of snow tonight. I love the Midwest* and I can't wait to shovel my car out tomorrow morning*. I'm also excited about the fact that the roads are so bad that I had to miss my hair appointment tonight*. 
I'm hoping that the weather will be kind to us throughout our drive. Please say a little prayer for us as we travel. Looking forward to seeing ya'll in Oklahoma!

One is the lonliest craving


This is it.

A self-proclaimed lover of food, I'm sorry to disappoint with my pregnancy craving. I can't even say "cravings"; it's so sad! Whenever I used to imagine myself pregnant, I would automatically think about all the cheeseburgers I would eat. You see, I love cheeseburgers. Hands down my favorite food. I used to eat so many cheeseburgers in college, that I had to limit myself to one a week. Wednesday's became "Cheeseburger Day". Since I've been pregnant, I honestly think I've had one. I'm blaming this madness on my hormones.

8 Things That Happened Today (Last 24 hours. It's only 9:00. The most I've done today is hit the snooze way to many times before going to work)
