Last night David, Hailey and I went to dinner to talk over some issues. Nothing serious, but you know when adult issues come up (bank talk, travel logistics, etc) it’s more fun to sort them out over buffalo chicken salad and beers. Well, just one beer. A Seeing Double IPA which lived up to its name.
After sorting things out, we got home, blasted Margaritaville, danced around (OK, maybe that was just me) and posted a ridiculous picture on instagram while packing our things.
Now I’m analyzing everything, trying to make sure I’m not forgetting any items of dire importance.
We have loads of sunscreen, flippers, snorkels, hats and my Maui Jims.
And bathing suits.
I have cover ups and lounging clothes, quick dry dresses, flip flops and sandals.
I have my toothbrush and comb ready to go, along with other toiletries.
I’m not planning on wearing makeup most days, but am bringing tinted moisturizer, mascara and blush to fancy up if the occasion arises.
No hairdryers or straighteners, so I’m preparing myself for curlytown.
I have my camera, video camera, charger and book.
I even got my first manicure in years! …with gel. I love it.
I’m bringing some medicine (Tums, advil, etc) just in case and a big ‘ol bag of almonds. I’m looking into trail mix or bars, too, after your suggestions.
Hailey is set with plenty of grab-n-go snacks and last minute meal choices.
Pouches, Chobani, Annie’s Mac and Cheese, Larabars, cooked lentils, olives, Mandarin oranges and guacamole
So… am I missing anything?
