Excited!



Some of you may have already guessed, and others already know...I am going away for a few days. Okay, that is a lie. I am going away for two weeks actually and I could not be more excited about it. Okay I am a little nervous about it but it's all going to be perfect I know that. I tend to over analyze things and make them worse than what they actually are. Can someone please slap me pinch me. Thank you.


Really, Selma, keep calm!!

To get into real vacay mood (and by that I actually mean beach mood AND I am NOT going to the beach!) I thought I could share some pictures with you all...because let's be honest, we all look forward to some sunshine, beach time, little break, and just well, some time away from stress, regular and irregular days that make us nuts at times...those days we wish we could just erase forever. Whether it is stress at work, with friends, with the kids, even with the hubby, or just general stuff like "why is my pile of laundry growing so fast", or "why is this not working" or "why do my self made mac'n'cheese always turn out gross?!" things...we all need some pretty things to look at. 


I know I do.
They relax me and let me breathe for a while and forget all kinds of nasty things happening around us.
Don't we all just enjoy fresh salty air coming from an ocean, reading a book, or just napping in the shade?




And wear beach outfits we just longed for all winter long.



But in the end, really, all we want is breathe! It's what vacation stands for: relax and breathe!


I know I will.
Though until  my vacation time arrives I have to wait a little longer...not too long though. Wohoooo!
Slowly I am getting excited. All I have to do now is get my suitcase, start packing, organizing, and making sure I have everything I need and still lots of space available so I can buy some pretty things while I'm in one of my homes! Yes, readers, I'm going to one of my homes. More on that later!
And just because I'm about to find my suitcase again doesn't mean I'm flying in the next two days. I always prepare early. Not sure why. Sometimes I start two weeks ahead of time. Sometimes one week, and sometimes, yes, sometimes I just pack two days before. With a crazy expression on my face.

How do you pack?!
And most importantly when do you pack?!
Have a sunny day! No more rain for any of us!!

I wanna know where you're going too! This post really calmed me down. I just got to work and beach pictures were just what I needed to see at the start of my day. This got me excited for my trip this summer. I love, love, love packing for a trip. Unpacking after a trip, notsomuch. Anyway, stay calm and have fun getting ready!! I'm so excited for you :)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

How exciting!! So if one of your homes happens to be near my home, we should totally meet up!! Then again you said no beach...so maybe that's a negative. Either way, can't wait to see the pics from your trip and you haven't even gone yet hehe :)

I hope you have so much fun in Turkey! I don't usually pack until like 2 days before, and then that gives me time to think about what I've forgotten to put in there.

Woohoo! Can't wait to hear about it!

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

oh wow, where are you going? I hope you have tons of fun. Oh and pack?! I've never been known to be a light packer. I always pack a lot of things, I just want to make sure I am properly dressed for whatever comes along on the trip. but one thing that I always have to have with me in my bag is a pair of cute comfy flip flops, just in case my feet gets tired and bruised from too much walking. =)
