Long Overdue...



No, not library books. I mean my long overdue vacation is almost here! YAY!

I think it was 2010 that my hubby and I went to Austin with some friends, but before that, our last vacation (sans family members) was our honeymoon waaaay back in 2002 (which didn't count because we just got a hotel room in the resort town where I went to high school. NOT a vacation.)

But by this time on Friday, I will be on a plane bound for Puerto Rico for a whole week! We've rented a cute little beach house and will (hopefully) be picking up a car we reserved at the airport, so we'll be able to drive all over the island once we're sick of just lying in the sun and swimming all day. ;) I'm so excited!

I'm still trying to decide what I need to bring with me: my trusty notebook, of course, my laptop for the plane, my nook for reading in direct sunlight, lol... Oh, and my phone charger since I always seem to forget to pack that stupid thing. I even bought new beach towels!

I'm sure I'll forget something, though. Like the time I went to see my mom in upstate New York and forgot to pack socks. D'oh!

What's the most important thing you ever forgot to pack? Any funny vacation stories you'd like to share?

Don't worry, I won't forget my towel! *

What's a vacation? ;)

I hope you and your hubby enjoy yourselves. Where you're going sounds like a wonderful place to be.

That sounds super fun and wonderful (and totally not like the dystopians Alz and I were imagining for our blog post, haha)!

I've forgotten my phone charger before. Not fun. Just remember all of the chargers for everything AND your swimsuit! That'd be a shame if you didn't have that! :)

P.S. Can you pack me with you? I want to go on vacay too!

Sweet vacation! Hope you had a great time. I've always wanted to go there. But there also a thousand other places I want to go to too.
