A few things before I leave on a jet plane

I'm ashamed to admit this, but I'm currently "that bitch".


I've had this lingering sickness for a few weeks but nothing too debilitating.  As of the past couple of days, I literally cannot take a breath without coughing like I'm on my death bed. My co-workers who sit by me have got to want to slice me. I'd slice me.

Disgusting cough or not, I will rally because I'm off to South Carolina at 5 a.m. to meet up with this girl for a weekend getaway.  Some sights I'll be seeing in less than 24 hours:

I'll be updating our trip a lot on Instagram. You can follow me at @thebargainblonde

Also, I am scheduling a Friday Faves link-up post for Friday, so y'all can still get your posts ready and link-up with me even though I'll be laying on the beach while y'all slave away at the office.  It's OK, you can hate me.

Per the usual, I have not packed and I have not ran any necessary pre-vacation errands.  I'd blame my current sickness, but this is what I do before every trip.  I'm queen of waiting until the last minute.  Like we're talking I still need to go to the bank, get a new pair of sunglasses, do laundry, pack, paint my nails, go the post office, write thank you cards, etc.  Obvs not all this is going to happen, but I will try my best.

Does any one procrastinate like me before traveling? Or are you on top of your packing game?

  11. have a great trip! Let us know how it goes :)(i'm sure you will haha). I mostly leave packing til the last minute; i pack some of my "neeed to haves" early. Like if I buy something for a trip specifically, it goes in the suitcase immediately. Otherwise, I'm packing until we pull away.

  12. yes, this is my life. i try telling myself that if i forget something, i can always buy it - that mentality doesn't go over as well with hubs.

  17. You're not alone. I'm heading to Jersey/NYC in the morning and haven't packed *anything* yet. I did manage to spray tan & get my nails done. Still need to go to the bank, find my camera, do laundry, etc. I thrive on procrastination =)

  20. I'm quite jelly that you get to travel all the time and have single girl's trips and all that implies! Lucky who-er. Yes I called you a who-er but that is my jealousy talking. Plus I spelled it in a cute way. And I'm totes playing. Luv u mean it. I wait till the last minute on everything, not just packing.

  21. I am the WORST procrastinator when it comes to packing! I always tell myself that I'm going to be packed and ready to go early so I don't freak out, but it never happens. Ever. I understand. Have a great trip!

  22. Jetsetter! I try to be super laid back about packing and planning for a trip, but I've recently given into my control-freak tendencies and actually feel so much more calm. I make very-detailed packing lists and plan every second of my trip, especially restaurants!

    ReplyDelete
  23. ugh, I used to be *so* good about packing early...but the past few trips I've gone on, I've been up until at least 1 AM packing the night before I left. I don't know what has changed or what's wrong with me. gahhhh
