Help Anyone?

A week from Sunday, the family and I are taking a 7 day road trip to Jackson Hole, WY and delivering a car there for a family friend. I'll be flying with The Little Miss from California to Las Vegas and The Husband will be meeting us there. By doing this, we'll save her from one additional day of being strapped into her car seat while she watches hours and hours of Dora, Diego, Super Why or whatever will keep her quiet for those countless hours. That quietness in the car is priceless and I'd like to make out with whoever it was that invented the portable DVD player. That magical person single handedly made my life better and the life of my child a lot longer, because honestly, without it, I may have strangled her many trips ago.

Well, I'm getting a little off track.

Vacation = me being gone.
Me being gone = no new posts.

So, a couple of things for you all. Does anyone know if blogger has a way to write a post and set it up to publish on a later date? If I could write some posts in advance and have them automatically post while I'm gone that would be great. Help anyone? Am I just being stupid?

Another option is would there be anyone that would want to guest blog for a day or so on my site while I'm gone? You could link back to your site possibly get some of my readers to your site. I don't have a tons of readers but the ones that do visit, are loyal and I appreciate each and everyone of them.

So, if you can help or want to do a guest post, email me at


Happy Friday everyone. I'm am soooo super looking forward to this weekend, as I always am. My mood brightens with every hour which passes until I get to 1pm, when I rush out of here to go pick up The Little Miss from her pre-school. Nothing beats having your little 2 year old run as fast as she can screaming Mama! Mama! and getting the biggest hug ever. Those moments are the absolute BEST.

We're planning on hitting the beach late this afternoon, after her nap, and hanging out there until dinner. Tomorrow if filled with a swim lesson, our weekly marketing and having some friends over for dinner. Sunday will be a day at the pool and BBQ at the house The Amazing Nanny is currently house sitting. Should be a fun summer weekend. Hope you all enjoy yours.

Yea for vacation!!!!! I have no clue how to do the post thing... I have seen on there a scheduling option but I am not sure how to use it.

I LOVE the advanced posting option that blogger has! Here's how you do it:

Write you post like normal, and click on the little arrow that says "Post Options". It will pop down and there will be a post date and time section. Change it to a future date and time, and then hit publish post (not save now). It will then bring you to the list of all your posts and it will say "Scheduled" next to the one you just finished.

The trip sounds like fun, although I would be stressed about the kid in the car too! We don't have a DVD player, but my kids do pretty well without it. Our last trip I bought a bunch of junk from the dollar bins at Target and wrapped them with bows and everything. Then every so often I would tell my oldest that if he was good he would get a road trip present soon.

He LOVED it!! And he didn't even care that it was junk! I did it with special snacks and juice boxes too, since he doesn't normally get them. Good luck!!

Have fun on your vacay! I too am in love with the person who invented the portable DVD player and can't wait until the kids are old enough to wear headphones so that I don't have to listen to their programs! Thanks for your support on my blog--very much appreciated!
