Tomorrow Eric and I are off to Vegas to meet my parents and sister in order to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday! Since he was turning the big 6-0 we said we would do whatever he wanted to do to and that is was ALL ABOUT HIM. Being a kid at heart (in other words, a 21 year old) he decided Vegas was a great option and then the planning began. We have been waiting for months for this trip, and now that it is finally here, it feels like tomorrow will never come.
With that being said, we (and by we, I mean I) am now running into the dilemma - to pack in a carry on or not. Please be advised that Eric and I each get a free checked bag with American Airlines, so it probably seems like a no brainer. However, since we get in late Friday night and leave Monday morning, Eric continues to remind me that it is really only 2 days, and that packing in a huge suitcase is plain, old crazy.
Doesn't he know me by now? Not only will I pack a suitcase, but I will probably also have a carry-on boat tote, that will be filled to the brim and most likely unable to be zipped (he hates that! OOPS!)
Luckily, I have my reliable personalized tote bag that serves two purposes. I can use it as a carry-on bag and also as a beach/pool bag. This way, I am killing two birds with one stone and actually packing less - see how I rationalize?
Anyways, we are all super excited for this mini-vacation so please stay tuned for next week's blog. There might be some promo items in store while we are in Vegas...
