Let’s just say I welcomed my lunch break!
Today’s lunch included a turkey and cheese sandwich served with lots of veggies that I wanted to be sure to consume before my trip to Chicago.
I inhaled this meal so fast that afterward I just kind of sat there thinking, did I really just eat lunch? Note to self: Slooooow down.
Normally I am a very laid back traveler. I pack my suitcase, arrange for airport transportation ahead of time and always leave myself plenty of time at the airport to make it through security.
Today my travel stresses can be attributed to three different things:
- Trying to cram everything into a carry on bag. Now that airlines are charging $20+ to check luggage (Lame!), I am determined to get everything I need for my three-day trip into one carry on bag. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal, but it’s very challenging at the moment, as 3/4 of my carry on suitcase is full of bachelorette party gifts and décor.
- Transportation. I bought a deal through LivingSocial for cheap off-site airport parking and I’m a bit stressed about finding the lot, parking and taking a shuttle to the airport, especially after reading some sub-par reviews of the service this morning. (Ryan could drop me off tonight but can’t pick me up on Monday, in case you were wondering.)
- What to pack. Maybe I’m just having an “off” day, but when I went to pack my suitcase this morning, none of my clothes were jumping out at me. I have a handful of things I could wear, but nothing I’m particularly excited to wear. And, since it’s a bachelorette party, I was pumped to get all gussied up! Such a lame thing to complain about, but I’m sure you ladies out there can relate to this feeling! Oh, and my closet now looks like a dump heap.
I know everything will work out perfectly fine (it always does!), and I am just envisioning myself chillin’ at my flight gate, reading my new book and sippin’ on a Frappuccino, full of excitement about the amazing weekend ahead!
Chicago here I cooooome!
P.S. The Fashion page was updated today!
P.P.S. What on earth is the “mystery” flavor of Stride Mega Mystery gum? I’m going to say it’s “juicy goodness” until I can figure it out.
