All My Bags Are Packed, I'm Ready To Go...

We depart tomorrow for our first cruise! And I'm proud to say that, at 8:00pm the night prior, I am already packed, suitcases standing by the door, ready to go.... I'm exagerrating a little. Or a lot. My suitcase isn't packed. I haven't decided what I'm bringing yet and my room may or may not resemble this: Anyone who knows me, or even worse, has lived with me (Sorry Mom and CR...but hey, look on the bright side...y'all survived!) knows the act of Congress it takes to get me to decide on an outfit to wear for one night, let alone 5!

Justin came into the bedroom today during one of my earlier attempts to pack and said, "Our cabin is going to be pretty small, so I'm trusting that you will be smart when packing and not bring too many clothes or 8 pairs of shoes to take up what little space we have, like when we went to the Dominican."

.....So cute at that age.

(And in my defense, I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who also think it is completely necessary to bring 10 dresses, 3 skirts, 4 pairs of pants, and 12 pairs of shoes for a 6-night vacation.)

So, anyway, I'll be a little absent this upcoming week! I'm not quite sure what to expect on the cruise. I've been getting lots of advice from other past cruisers. All I really know is there will be lots of food (and thankfully, a gym!) I'll definitely give everyone a complete run-down when we get back!

And I'll pack eventually. In the meantime, football and Planet Earth are on television and I just discovered yesterday that we have Picture-In-Picture! Yay!...perfect timing!

Have a great week everyone! And to all who know me, be sure to take a brief moment at some point on Tuesday, October 14th to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (I kid, I kid. Okay, I completely don't kid.)

Love you, mean it!
