Vacation Preparation & Such

Hi friends!

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? This week has been a crazy one! Between Paul coming home and getting everything ready for our Italian vacation, I’ve hardly had time to take a breath! Here is everything that has been going on the past few days:


We’ve packed a ton into a few short days! A few of the highlights are:

  • Vacation shopping
  • Lunch dates
  • Braves v. Cardinals game
  • Puppy loving {of course}

I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off lately… can’t lie! Since this will be my very first trip abroad, I was feeling a little out of sorts about packing and the necessities. I think {hope} I’ve thought of everything that I’ll need! It’s a little late to ask for suggestions from you all… I’ll just cross my fingers that my research will suffice!

I feel pretty darn proud of myself for packing everything into a carry-on sized suitcase. My brother, Alex, had about $800 worth of items stolen out of a checked bag last fall and I have been incredibly leery to check a bag ever since. I also have a neighbor who had someone else’s random items {WWII hardcover books} added into her bag. Not to knock TSA too hard, but I don’t trust them. Not at all after Alex’s situation.

Anyway, here is my 8 days in Italy handiwork:

Packed suitcaseNot too shabby for a first-timer! I’ll let you know if there was anything major that slipped my mind… ha


The puppies are quickly growing! Their eyes are starting to open one by one. I’m bummed that I won’t see my puppy’s eyes open right when it happens {probably tomorrow}, but Italy is worth it! They’re starting to walk around and it’s too cute. They look like the cliche newborn deer; wobbly, missteps, and oh-so-adorable. I know I will hardly recognize them in a week!
