Wednesday Whatsits (71)

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Wednesday Whatsits.


This weekend is going to be awesome or an epic fail.

We’re taking the boys on their first plane ride.


A two-year-old and a four-year-old, three hours each way, in a confined space.

Wish me luck. {and give me any tips you have for a smooth flight!}

On the bright side, we’re going to Minnesota for Mike’s sister’s wedding. Β The ladies asked me to cook, and I couldn’t be more flattered. Β If you want to check out the first family vacay/plan ride saga, follow me on Instagram.

It could get interesting.


And funnies…




Oh Oh Oh!!

      I put some chocolate chips in test tubes (for fun presentation), and some paper lunch bags and easter eggs to put goodies in. Hopefully they just think the plane is too fun in and of itself. *finger crossed*

    Thanks for hosting Julie! Maybe since it is their first time they will be super excited and just taking it all in… a small DVD player would be good too! Where in Minnesota cuz you know that is where I live πŸ™‚ Have a great trip and will be watching for your adventures!

      I loaded up the tablet with a bunch of movies and bought them matching headphones. We tested the headphones yesterday, and the boys loved them. We’re flying into MSP and will be staying in Burnsville.

        You will be one hour from me! Some of our BF’s live in Burnsville – I’m south in Rochester… wouldn’t that be fun to meet! I hope you have a great trip—-suppose to be a cooler weekend but dry… you might need a sweater πŸ™‚ you AZ gal!

    • Julie says

      It’s only 20 people. It’s be like cooking for my family when we have a birthday party. Nothing too crazy. πŸ™‚ And I’m not in charge of the cake which doesn’t put any real stress on me either.
