Not-So-Intelligent Blonde Moments...

What trip to San Francisco would be complete without a tour of Alcatraz?

Although we are going to San Fran for my surgery, 
we planned extra travel time so that we could sightsee. 

While I was reading about various tour packages,
my mom said: "We get to ride a FERRY to Alcatraz?!"
Me: "Well yes mother, how else do you expect to get to an ISLAND?"
Mom: "Don't you dare put that on your blog!"

She should know by now that when she tells me not to do something, 
I'm going to do the opposite.
Good thing she doesn't read my blog!

In other news,
I have determined that it is nearly impossible to pack a week's worth of winter clothes in a carry-on.
Why couldn't my surgery be someplace warm, like Hawaii?

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde


  1. Ha, it's all about the layering sister! & making sure that you're wearing the bulkiest items of course;) good luck packing!!

  2. I feel ya, I live in the desert and I just had to pack for the mountains...which now has a foot of snow! Hope everything with the surgery goes well.

    I hope you'll check out my blog, plus a link up called Wish! {out loud} that I hope you'll participate in!

  3. Thinking of you! Hope everything goes well!! As for packing... bring items that coordinate nicely (does that even make sense? It's 2AM here.. blahh) you know, like shirts/cardigans/pants/scarves that all can be rotated to make diff. outfits? That way you really only need to take lik 2 pairs of pants, 3 shirts and 3 cardigans... or something like that... I'm going to sleep now! hahaha Seriously, thinking of you though :)


  4. Mallory--I always wear my jacket/coat and sweat pants on flights so that I don't have to pack them! ha ha. Who needs to look cute to fly?

    Robin, I actually had a layover in Phoenix on my way to San Francisco! Luckily, there isn't snow here right now--it's just a little chilly, although nothing compared to Oklahoma. I will definitely consider doing the link up next week!

    Ash--Thank you for the sweet thoughts! Surgery will be on Wednesday, so right now I'm just doing some touristy things. Thanks for the advice; I ended up packing exactly like that (great minds think alike)!

  5. New follower! Just found your blog! It's super cute! Cannot wait to keep reading!!

  6. Jessie, thank you for stopping by! I'm so glad you liked my blog and became a follower! I'm headed to your blog as we speak!

  7. Haha, your mom is so sweet :)

  8. Ivana--I think she's pretty great! I hope to be even half as sweet and funny as she is, someday.
