Ready

When you get ready for a trip you dust off the suitcases and count out socks and underwear. You fill the car with gas or print out your boarding passes. If you're traveling with the kids you also round up the lovies and hide fruit snacks every place you can think of so they are ready to be popped out at a moments notice.

But for this trip there are no fruit snacks. Instead there are lots of chicken nuggets, frozen pizzas and waffles, mac-n-cheese, hot dogs, apples and V8 Splash in Fruit Punch. There are also grandparent treats - Chocolate Special K, tea, Diet Coke, Mt. Dew, popcorn and red wine.

This box is reserved.
No, we aren't all going on vacation together.

We are leaving the kids at home. With the grandparents. For three nights. Three nights.

So instead of the lovies, there are cute skits. And tops that are great for dancing and bars (but like the suitcases need a good dusting because they don't get out very often). There are nights out with friends, time to relax in warm weather - oh - and a wedding!
