Thanks to the lovely gals at SITS, I have met a whole new “tribe” of bloggers that I love. One such blogger is Jean of JeanHasBeenShopping.com. She lives just outside of Vegas, loves Chelsea Handler and shows off some serious cleavage in her website header. ‘Nuff Said. She has been a gem of an bloggy friend since I met her two weeks ago and I can’t stop cracking up about her post comparing Ron Jeremy to Marco Canora.
This week, our SITS mission, if we choose to except it, is to swap guest posts with one of our “tribe” mates. So I am thrilled to introduce to you Jean as my first guest blogger on The Mama Mary Show. Please welcome her with open arms.
Without further ado, I offer you Jean Has Been Shopping…
When Southwest Airlines announced their $35.00 fare sale earlier this year, I jumped on it. It had been three years since hubby, the girls and I had visited my parents in northern California, and I wasn’t going to let this opportunity fly by.
As expected, the travel weekend passed too quickly, and we returned home with nothing but memories and a few overpriced souvenirs. Highlights of the trip were the surprise birthday party for my sister, seeing how much my nephews had grown, watching my children play at a park I frequented as a youngster, touring the Jelly Belly Factory, playing Wii games with family, drawing pictures for Grandma & Papa’s fridge, and spending five fun-filled hours at Six Flags. That doesn’t even include flying in an airplane, which still thrills me.
I was with her right up until she mentioned Burger King. Look, child, that was out of necessity! BK is not a dream destination.
She boiled it all down to candy, a new place to lay her head, two Kids Meals, and the amusement park, which come to think of it, isn’t so bad.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m taking the kids on a “field trip” to Pizza Hut.
What simple things entertain your children on vacation? Or, more importantly, what’s your favorite Jelly Belly flavor?
P.S. I am guest posting on her site today so check out my combo blog/vlog about one of my first trips to Vegas and one of my favorite lines of all time, “Everyone’s a winner!”
