Kidding, again, I roll myself out of bed and stumble across the room, turn off my obnoxiously loud alarm that I bury below my workout clothes, I mumble a few choice words about how much I don’t want to wake up, but then I do it… because there’s no way I’m giving up pizza, breakfast burritos or brookies anytime soon!

  • Hi Whitney! It was such a pleasure having you here in Omaha. Your blog is a force to be reckoned with, it’s truly amazing! Keep up the exceptional work, and if you’re ever in Omaha again, get in touch and we’ll go back to the “Great Bloom” for cocktails and fancy food!

    • Thanks so much Jackie! It was a pleasure meeting and working with you! I’m always down for a trip to the “Great Bloom” in Omaha, haha! And please come to San Diego for a visit soon!

  • Whitney–oh my goodness! I came across your name when doing a recipe search and thought, “That HAS to be Whitney Bond from Southern Hills CC!” (I was the Children’s Ministry Director there when you were in elementary/middle school.) I just read the “about” section and am not at all amazed by your positivity and creativity! Just as I remember you. So great to see pictures of you and your family! Tell your folks and brother hello for me! -Angela (Stanton) Johnson

  • Hi Whitney, omg this is so funny!!!! We are actually very much alike, including on bacon and glitter. lol. I moved out of California 2 years ago to be closer to my Dad in Virginia. He’s since passed on but I may return to Cali…I lived in the Bay Area but have girlfriends in LA and San Diego who’ve asked me to move in. lol. I need a job though. But anyway, love your blog!
