Monday Musings...

Hoping to get somewhat of a tan... with sunscreen of course! I used to get this dark just walking to the mailbox... sigh.

Wish my luggage was this adorable.

I have been feeling under the weather this weekend with a flash 24 hr (hopefully) bug-ish-ness sort of thing going on so the Monday mood board is going to be more like a late Tuesday mood board. My mind has also been occupied by my upcoming vacation to LALA land. If you could peek into my head right now, these are some thoughts you'd see firing around my neurons.

Wanting... neon bikini.

Need... blood orange margarita.

Perfect vacation hair.

Packing is one of my main tasks for tonight. Maybe it is because I am mildly OCD, but I love packing and have an entire packing ritual. I start a week ahead and make a list of everything I can think of that I'll need (usually wayyy to much), the night of, pump some music, lay out everything on the list/ cross out on my bed, arrange and re-arrange outfits for way too long, finally organize by actual item, then re-cross of all of the items while actually putting them in the suitcase. Of course there are always the last minute things I think of at 2:30 am the night before my trip, thus why I keep post it notes by my bedside to write these down so I can remember them in the morning. When I was living with Luna, she would come in, see the suitcases, give me a death stare and stomp out of the room ignoring me until I was out the door. Odin is not as perceptive and just thinks packing is just an awesome game where he gets to steal things off of the bed and run away with them so mommy has to chase after him.

Do you have any packing rituals? How do your pets react to packing or suitcases?

Happy Monday!



  1. i love packing too!! these pictures are great. i'd love a tan, bikini, and body like that!

  2. as soon as there is a suitcase out on my bed, Loulou pees in my shoes...actually IN them...

    Just don't forget extra undies, bikini(s), advil and a razor hahaha
    Hope you feel better hun

  3. Wow, I'm totally impressed, actually! That is quite the way to pack...I wish I was a little more OCD with my packing habits because it never fails that I forget something and that is *THE WORST*! Hope you are feeling tip-top in time for the vacation!

  4. You're so funny. I don't know what it is, but over the last few years, I've sort of grown to HATE packing. I'd rather just be where I need to be! :) Also, I tend to stress myself out about what I might be forgetting. Packing is so anxiety ridden that I usually can't relax until I'm on the plane.

    Hope you're feeling better today!

  5. I hate packing and so do my animals! They're on instant alert that we're leaving and behave like monsters. Have a fantastic time on your trip!

  6. Sounds like a fun packing routine! It just adds to the anticipation of the trip - so fun!

  7. I wish my luggage was that cute! I'm certainly an OCD packer. (Hope you're feeling better!)

  8. Hope you're having a fabulous time sweetie! I just got back and it was beyond amazing :) xoxo
