Do the Happy Dance!

Yes I am doing the Happy Dance and listening to Fall Out Boy:) Slept like a ROCK last night woke up and did laundry, dishes, vacuumed and made breakfast for little C and I. I love being productive in the morning!

I am loving this Brownie Z Bar in my oats! The mixture of banana, brownie and peanut butter is perfect! 


We have so many beautiful roses blooming right now, I love Spring!


Last night I stayed up pretty late trying to get down all the fun things I wanted to do while we are on the East Coast! I finished the itinerary and now all I have to do is update the IPOD for some new tunes, and PACK!

Packing Strategies

  • Make a checklist of every item you plan to take on your trip: clothing, shoes, toiletries, maps, guidebooks, reading material, and hotel and rental car information. Include even items you do not intend to pack. A good site to check out is as it provides a packing checklist and tips.

    Review your checklist to determine whether there are any items you can remove to lighten your load. Will you really need three pairs of shoes? And two coats? Consider the weather and what kinds of activities you will be doing.

  • Buy travel-size containers for your toiletries, regardless of the length of your trip. Unless you will be in a remote location for weeks, you can always drop into a local shop to restock your supply of soap and toothpaste.

  • Begin packing your luggage, checking off each item on your list as you go.

  • Pack clothing using the time-honored "roll" technique. Lay two or three items on top of one another, smooth to flatten, and roll them up like you would a sleeping bag to save space and prevent wrinkles. For added wrinkle insurance, place a sheet of heavy tissue or packing paper between items of clothing before rolling.
  • Enclose toiletry containers in airtight plastic bags to prevent contents from spilling into your suitcase in the event of a leak. Wrap socks or pajamas around breakable items to cushion them.
  • Plan to bring a snack on the plane in case you get very hungry. Bring a snack like a bag of peanuts or something. Pack it in your small suitcase.

    I love this VIDEO!!!!
