Happy Friday To Me!

That's right, today is my Friday, and this makes for a very happy girl. I have a lot of work to do before I leave the office today but to be honest, I don't mind.

Why don't I mind? Well, by the time you wake up on Friday morning, I will probably already be on a plane on my way to CUBA!!

I'm going from this......

To this.......

Well not EXACTLY this but hopefully something close, this is from Jamaica.

One of my most favorite things about going away on a vacation is packing! It might sound kind of crazy but I love it!

For me it is a real process. I can't just grab clothes and throw whatever in the suitcase. It takes planning, organizing and real concentration.

Organizing+Planning = Super fun for Lindsay

So please, sit back and enjoy the crazy inner workings of me.....

First, I need to figure out how many days I will be gone. During those days I also need to assume what I will be doing. Beach outfit, night outfit, wedding outfit, etc.

Then I gather the things out of my closet that I think will go with set days and lay them out on the bed. Laying them out really helps me to mix and match items so that I don't have too many things!

I make sure there are enough outfits for each day, activity, etc. Then I get to grabbing shoes and accessories.

Sorry about the poor phone camera quality
Then I get a rolling....I always roll my clothes when I put them in the suitcase. I find it really reduces the amount of wrinkles and takes up less space!

I am so excited about going! Cuba was actually never somewhere Ryan or I thought of visiting before but after a little research now, we can't wait to be lying on the beach with a rum punch in our hands!

I hope to cross a few things off of my 101 list while there...

#27 - Swim with a dolphin

#37 - Build a sand castle

#1 - Build a snowman


#87 - Spend a whole day at the beach

#100 - Go down south with a group of friends

#29 - Release a message in a bottle

There you have it, you can kind of see what I plan on doing in the next week or so.

See you around!

Nos vemos!
