Super Powers!!!

About three years ago, I created a Halloween costume as a superhero, based on my name. Wonder Whit! The play was on the word Wit vs. Whit. The uniform/costume consisted of a red-striped shirt, work out shorts, long striped socks, a cape, large circular glasses (to support the wit), and pigtails. It was so clever, if I must say so myself. I had fun with that costume.

Let's rewind a bit more and focus on a road trip with two friends. We were staying at my friend's sister's place. While playing the Wii with her nephew, he created a player for me and name it Wonder Whit! I guess the name stuck.

Since these two occasions, I have set out to find my superpowers. Every superhero must have them. What are Wonder Whit's powers? Here are some that I have found (with stories).


Here's the story. I was getting my breakfast and pulling some rolls out of a bag. They started to fall to the ground. I bobbled them, showed them my juggling skills (maybe that should be another superpower), and caught them right before they hit the ground. It was great! I was by myself at that moment, but said out loud, "I am a good catch". After thinking about what I had said, I started to laugh, thinking of the multiple meanings that statement had. Interpret this one how you wish


I am constantly being told I am so sweet or even too sweet. I am grateful for those compliments. Seriously. Sometimes I don't feel so sweet but I do try to be sweet, kind and nice. Then I thought, every superhero has a way to attack. My attack is sweetness, or to get the opposition with kindness. 


Maybe this isn't a superpower, but it really did happen. Without too much detail, let just say I took brownies out of the oven, place them on the stove top and continued to eat dinner. After a bit, an explosion was heard. Glass was flying. Unbeknownst to me, a burner on the stove top was on. Oops! In case you are wondering, glass pans really do explode with heat.


What can I say? With a name like Wonder Whit, you need to be witty. I have people constantly telling me that I am witty or have a quick wit or a creative wit. Whatever the case may be, I like to make jokes or plays on words and themes. Wit keeps life interesting.

These are just some of my superpowers. I am still on the lookout for others. Now it is your turn. Please leave a comment or message or something with the following:

I look forward to hearing your stories. 

This is Wonder Whit signing off. Up, up and away!!!!

Adventures of a Traveler

Lately, it seems like all I have been doing is working, running around, and traveling. I realized that I have made three trips in the past three weeks. It as been fun, but tiring, but exciting. Here are some details:


A few weekends ago, I was blessed to spend a few days with my sister, her family, and my parents, at my sister's place up in Idaho. We were celebrating the baptism of my nephew. He is one great kiddo and I am so grateful for his example and that I could be there to support him. It was so good to be there, play with all the kiddos, be at the baptism and spend some quality time talking. Love this boy!!! I am also grateful for my sister. She is one amazing gal and so blessed to call her my friend as well. 


I spent a weekend up in Logan. There is something amazing about the Logan temple. I wish I could have taken a picture of it, but the batteries in my camera died before I could. I spent a Saturday morning there and was so blessed that day. The spirit there is real and I have some amazing people I know there. It was so good to see some familiar faces from my group and talk with them. That weekend, I ended up having to bring work home with me, so besides working up there, I was able to spend some time with many amazing friends and see my old young women and friends. It was a nice weekend.


This weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to Colorado with some friends. It was a pretty quick trip, but it was definitely a new experience. This was a road trip, in all sense of the word. There were five of us stuffed into a Hyundai Elantra. We left early (really early)Saturday morning. We made a few little stops a long the way (Little America, gas station, the Colorado state sign). After we got there, we went to lunch and then played games with the parents of one of the girls. I also figured out that my friend lived close by, so I ended up meeting with her and her husband for dinner. Then it was off to a play (which was REALLY good)! After that, we attempted to watch a movie, though most of us fell asleep. The drive home was another long drive but the good company, amazing singing, and loads of food, sure helped.

I have loved traveling and seeing so many family and friends. It has been great!!! Three states in three weeks. I am excited to get a little break from traveling. Ha Ha Maybe. Unless a new adventure comes up. :-)
