Since When Did Packing Become SO Hard?!

I remember the days of carefree packing. A few clothes in the suitcase, toss in my toiletries and BAM on the road.

Yeah...not so much anymore. Packing is now so detail oriented. Planning for at least a week. Calculating possible scenarios for what may or may not occur.

And the lists...oh, the amount of lists. It's seriously insane. Especially when I forget said lists at home on our way out to do a major shopping trip....although it really doesn't surprise me that I forgot the lists, hehe!

But now the packing is complete. The car is packed. The cat is dropped off at a friends home. The last load of laundry is in the dryer. One baby is asleep. The other is still awake obviously running on the excitement and thrill of preparing for such a big trip.

I will be back the following week to you all...and guess what? I have my first guest posters for while I am away! I am thrilled!! I love the girls posting. You will love them, too, if you don't already--they are sweet, funny, smart...basically they're awesome.

Until I am back home--with Macy--oh...AND when I return I'll be 31 {my birthday is Flag Day--best holiday e-v-e-r}! And for the record I am loving my 30's--MUCH better than my 20's were in the beginning, that is for sure.

Love y'all! I will miss each and every single one of you--have a fab week and enjoy the awesome posts lined up. xoxo

I know a woman who breeds/raises Goldens in Texas - outside of Austin. How random would that be if you're getting one of hers? Good luck with Macy - she's a cutie that's for sure!

I hate packing, it's such a pain. I have to make a list to be sure not to forget anything. Im always afraid I'll forget to pack undies or my shoes, lol.

Have a great time & have a fun birthday!
