Away We Go!

Well, we're off! Ready to take Memphis by storm! My family and I fly out tomorrow afternoon for several days with my dad's side of the family which will include boat/lake time, board games, shopping, eating, laughing, about 75 kids under the age of 8, and some flea marketing (you better believe I timed our trip just right with the gigantic Memphis Flea Market this weekend ; ). It's sure to be a good time! My family is sooo fun and a blast to hang out with!

Of course a trip like this requires some serious packing, which is what I spent all of tonight doing. (Ok maybe the majority of tonight was actually spent stalking perusing my new fave blog Life in the Fun Lane, with a little packing thrown in.)

- 2 pairs of jeans - 7 cute shirts - 4 t-shirts - 2 swim suits - 1 cover-up - 4 pairs of shoes - 3 pairs of shorts - 2 sets of pajamas - 3 camisoles - 4 pairs of earrings - 2 bracelets - makeup, shower supplies, blow dryer, straightner coming soon

I sure managed to fill this thing up! And also discovered that pretty much everything I own (or at least prefer to wear) is either a shade of cream or purple. Huh.

Really I'm just dying to get on the plane so I can treat myself to these babies...

Yep, I splurged on some really high quality reading material for the plane and boat. I cannot wait! I hope none of my family thinks they're going to actually talk to me during the flight, because I will certainly be grooving to Feist while gobbling up some decor goodness. Sorry, fam : ) : )

So after tonight I probably won't be around much til I return, but you better believe I will have some Memphis goodies to share with you (well, if I can smash them into my suitcase/smuggle them onto the plane ... do you think anyone would notice a vintage apothecary jar sticking out of my shirt??)

Hopefully, if all goes well and I get my act in gear, I will have a post on the 16th, because Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life is having a Summer Cloche Party. And if you know me, you know I love a cloche! Get your head out of the gutter, it's not as dirty as it sounds! I did some research and cloche is pronounced claw-sh. (Sorry, Meg, not as fun anymore, I know...)

Well, I'm off to get some beauty sleep before working a half day tomorrow, and then off to Memphis! Talk to you girls next week!

    Surprisingly, you are a way better packer than I! I take earrings and shoes out the waazoo. You probably plan more exactly than I do though - I like options!
