Summer Vacay Packing!
We leave tomorrow morning!! Ahh! I can’t believe it is finally here! I can’t wait to get to the hotel room and check in to officially start our vacation. We are gonna have so much fun!
Of course, it is not a road trip unless you have like 10 bags and pieces of luggage right? We tried to narrow it down to just a few, but we have so much we want to bring! To start off, let’s start with our items to take with us in the car – Our bag full of items for the girls and snacks.
We first have our Tote of Many Colors from Maggie Bags! This tote is carrying all of our things the girls will be playing with in the car ride down to San Antonio. We have our two Build-A-Bear Workshop Color Popz Bears and our Nickelodeon SpongeBob Build-a-Bear for comfort for the girls. They will not only be able to play with them, but they will make great travel pillows as well! We also have our Microsoft Surface RT packed for the girls to play games on and use for entertainment. I also will be using it when my fiance is driving! It has some great features and apps for all of us so I can’t wait to really dig into it! (Plus it will be great for my blog posts each day!)
We also have our Double B Embroidery Insulated Cooler Bag coming with us to carry all of our drinks and a few GoGo applesauces. I didn’t want to crush the chips and cookies, so we are carrying them separately. Also, the side pockets come in great use to carry more snacks and our Wet Ones wipes. I never leave the house with out them! We have some of the packaged wipes in the side of the cooler and I am carrying a travel wipe package in my purse as well for any “sticky situations” we might have. Since we are taking the new car, I really don’t want any messes!
We also will be taking our Ubooly buddies! They aren’t pictured because they are just way to cute and fun, my step daughter has been playing with her ever since we activated it! The Ubooly buddies are interactive Iphone friends that my step daughter and little sister in law will be bringing with us in the car. They have so many lessons and activities, including the Road Trip lesson, which will keep them busy for hours! Also our large Nickelodeon Spongebob coloring pages weren’t pictured since they were being colored on, but we will be bringing them as well!
Our Maggie Bags Travel Cases are perfect for carrying all of our small needs! Things like body wash, shampoo, conditioner and Coola Organic Sun Care items are packed in our Maggie Bags Large Cosmetic bag. The Coola Organic Sun Care items are perfect to take with us since we will be in the sun a lot. I also didn’t want to forget any sun care because I know they will charge crazy prices in the parks! Plus, organic sun care is hard to come by!
In the Maggie Bags Small Cosmetic bag is all of my jewelry for the trip. This includes my gorgeous Ava Gray Direct Statement Bracelet! It is the perfect size to keep all my small pieces of jewelry. I am also taking my Caboodles Makeup Train Case full of all of my Mirenesse makeup! The train case is perfect to carry any and all items that I will be using, and then some! Of course I had to pack up my Mirenesse waterproof makeup. I am not going to have mascara running down my face ruin my vacation.
Our main suitcase is carrying all of my fiance’s and my items. Of course, my fiance packs last minute so pictured are just the items I will be taking. From left to right I have a pile of different clothing items. The first pile I have comfy shorts or swimming pull over shorts I might wear, including the adorable Swim Outlet Board Short! The next two piles I have our 24/7 Frenzy dress and shorts that are a bit nicer to wear during the day if we plan to go anywhere besides the parks. The next few piles I have my tank tops which include my Swim Outlet Volcom shirt, Del Sol color changing shirt and cover up, and my adorable Ava Gray Direct Top. After that, I have my sleeved shirts such as the 24/7 Frenzy cuffed shirt, my Krimson Klover sweaters and my Ellie shirt and sweater. (I am wearing my skirt tomorrow.) The sweaters will come in handy if the hotel is cold, which most are, and the other shirts will be great if I decide to change things up when we go some place after the parks. You may think this is a lot, but when you think of how many showers we will be taking from sweating in the park all day and being in chlorine filled pools and water park, you could easily go through a few pairs of clothes a day. (Not pictured are my towels and Double B Embroidery towel wrap I also threw in.)
At the top zippered portion I have two pairs of sandals, including the incredibly comfortable Therafit sandal. I also have my under garments and swim suits. Of my favorite is the MyeSoul swim suit. I can’t wait to show that bad boy off! It is so comfy and looks great.
In the last two bags we are taking is my Double B Embroidery Monogram Grey Floral Duffle Bag full of my step daughters clothes and items and my Nicole Lee Overnight Bag filled with odds and ends.
In the Nicole Lee Overnight Bag I plan on packing everything we need that is not clothes related. This includes my Maggie Bags and Nicole Lee crossbody purses for both parks, our Maggie Bags Travel Cases filled with sun care and hair care, my hair straightener, blow dryer, phone and Surface RT chargers, toothbrushes and deodorant. I love having a bag dedicated to these things so they don’t end up getting lost in our main bag. On top of that, I have each of the items that have a possibility of leaking in zip lock bags for extra safety.
In the Double B Embroidery bag I have all my step daughter’s items. Having a separate bag for her ensures us nothing will get lost inside our bag since all of her items are so small. Inside the bag besides her clothes are also her Zipz shoes and covers. These shoes will come in handy since it is like 3 shoes all in one. She will be able to wear a different shoe everyday! I also have her Nickelodeon Spongebob water gun and pool toys from Swim Outlet.
And there you have it… Our 4 day roadtrip packed and ready to go! Come back tomorrow for Day 1 of our vacation!
