GEEEEEEEEET READY FOR EXHAUSTIOOOOOOOOOOOON. Well, at least that’s what I’m trying to mentally prepare for. Over the next two weekends I will be taking five plane rides to do various bridesmaid-related activities. While I am so pumped for these getaways (and to see my co, my girl, my bestie, Alyssa), the whole packing thing is kind of tripping me up. The logistics of packing your bridesmaids dress in a carry-on? Possible, but not ideal.
What’s on tap for these trips? Bachelorette weekend in New Orleans and then wedding weekend in Dallas. So I thought I’d take you through some of what was happening inside my brain when I began packing for New Orleans last night.
Okay, I’ll be gone for three days/nights, so I’ll need 37 outfit options. One must be prepared!
Well, that’s not gonna work. I guess just as much clothing as I can squeeze in.
What’s the weather going to be like? I should check.
No, this will get sticky if there is humidity.
How do they even calculate humidity?
Is the high or low number ideal? I don’t understand.
OH, can’t forget my phone charger.
I wonder if we’ll do a Bayou tour. We haven’t planned or talked about it, but you never know. If so, then I NEED breathable yoga pants. But the cute ones.
Ooooo, I need to remember to pack this next weekend too.
Backup glasses! Or should I just bring a second pair of contacts?
I wish I had leather pants.
I wish I was in shape so I would feel comfortable wearing leather pants.
Might as well finish the ice cream before I go. Don’t want it to get freezer burn.
Time to bring out the foundation and concealer I never use.
Phone charger, phone charger, phone charger.
Comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant.
What if I’m not in the mood for those shorts? Should I bring a backup pair?
Set a reminder *not* to wear a black shirt when we go for beignets.
I’ve heard New Orleans doesn’t usually smell pleasant so DEFINITELY need some perfume/body spray.
Do locals pronounce it New Orl-EEns or New OR-lens?
I know not to say N’awlins.
Dammit, where is my charger???
What are your thoughts when packing for a trip?
(… I still haven’t packed my charger…)
