Can you believe this is all I'm taking on a four-day trip?
Compare mutant toy poodle to tell the scale of my bags
All my life, I have not been skilled in the art of packing. (I need lots of back-up clothing options, you see, which equals a lot of stuff.)
But determined not to pay to check a bag (totally ridic), I resolved to fit it all into one carry-on and one personal item. (And I told J he better do the same!)
And I did!
We are leaving the house at 5:30 am (!) tomorrow morning for a wedding in Michigan.
2 wrap dresses for dinners Thursday and Friday
1 cocktail dress for the wedding Saturday
1 casual dress for brunch Sunday
1 white skirt
1 pair of white jeans
4 tops (there should be 2 extra)
1 jean jacket in case it gets cold
2 pairs of heels
1 pair of ballet flats
1 pair of flip-flops
+ jewelry, toiletries, hair straightener, et al.
I am finally a packing success! (I rolled everything reallly tightly. I'm crossing my fingers I can get it all back in later!)
I'm excited - J booked his ticket on points and gets first class on the way there. Guess who gets the seat on the longer leg of the flight? Ooh ooh!
I've never been to Michigan. We'll be in a small town outside of Detroit, and I'm expecting it to be really beautiful there. They've reserved bikes at the hotel, so I think that's what I'll be doing while J golfs Friday.
