Pack, Unpack, Pack Again

I'm about to make a really lame excuse for not blogging the past week and a half, and you can feel free to judge me all you want for it.  :)  Because it's not that the past week has been busy, but this upcoming one will be and I've been concentrating on that.  You know, doing mental checklists of everything I need to get done to prepare while not actually doing anything at all to get it done. 

This week I have my annual PA conference and I'll be gone to Tulsa Tuesday night through Thursday, which I'm super excited about.  It's great to see all of my classmates and this year, it will be nice to have a small break from my normal responsibilities.  Plus, I LOVE staying in hotels.  Especially ones with pools.  :)

Then, one of my college friends will be in Friday night so we're having dinner with him (he was a bridesmaid in my wedding) and his fiance.  And after that, we leave for our cruise on Sunday!!!   We're going to Jamaica, Haiti, Grand Caymen and Cozumel.   Paisley and my mom are going with us, which I'm really happy about! 

Point of this story is that I've been a bad, bad blogger, excuses are not my strong-point, and I don't expect my blogging to improve over the next 2 weeks.  Forgive me if you can!


  1. Getting ready for vacation is so overwhelming I completely understand!!!
    I can't wait to hear how your cruise goes have fun!!

  2. Ohhhh I'm so jealous of your cruise! :) Take me with you? I'll watch Paisley! :) Packing is one of the most stressful things I believe. Especially when travelling with a little one, I would imagine! Have a great time!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful time at the PA conference and on your cruise! If you have any tips for flying with an infant please let me know or post about it ... ours are going to TX for Christmas, and I'm terrified of the plane ride!!

    Enjoy, relax, you deserve it!

  4. enjoy! enjoy! enjoy! blogging is secondary...or further to all you got going on!

  5. Have a great time at the conference and a wonderful time on your trip! Bring back lots of great pics of Little Miss Paisley in Paradise! :)

  6. I used to follow you under a different user name. It's great to see how your little princess has grown! Hope you have a fun vacation.
