Yay it's vacation eve! Can you tell I haven't gone on vacation in a while? I'm so excited I've had trouble sleeping every night this week.
Last night I finally packed. I'll be the first to admit that packing is not my strong point. I have this huge suitcase, and I fill it to the brim. I went to Utah for 3 days and brought my beastly suitcase and filled it so much I had to sit on it to close it.
I could probably roll in a ball and fit in this suitcase that is how big it is. Last time I went on vacation, my suitcase was too heavy! That means it was over 50 lbs. I had to give the sky cap the sexy eye in order for him not to charge me extra to check my bag; otherwise it's like a $75 fee for over weight bags.
So last night I had a goal of packing "light".
That lasted about 10 min. We will be gone for 9 days, and I packed about 10 pairs of shorts/pants and 8 shirts. I guess that part isn't too bad. The shoe part is where it gets ugly. I packed about 6 different pairs of shoes. Some shoes look best with certain outfits right? I guess it's the girl in me, but I need to have choices and lots of them. I hate it when I'm somewhere and I want to wear a certain outfit, but I can't because I don't have it.
After I thought I was finished with my clothes, I kept seeing more stuff I wanted to bring. Jimmy was giving me a hard time about this, so I waited until he wasn't looking and snuck and extra pair of shoes and a couple of shirts in there.
It is definitely going to be another time where I need to sit on my suite case to close it, that is for sure.
I don't consider myself high maintenance, but maybe I am? I mean I'm bringing 2 different curling irons, a blow dryer and tons of products. If that isn't high maintenance I don't know what is. I blame my genes. if I had nice straight get out of the shower and go kind of hair I would not need all that.
I just hope I can keep my suitcase under 50 lbs this time! It will be hard to give the sky cap the sexy eye when my husband is with me...
Waiting for James to arrive!
