3 days to take off...

Hello everyone!

Well, there are only 3 more days until we leave for our vacation of a life time! My baby (Jayla) is BEEside herself with excitement. I found a picture of the plane today and was able to show her where our seats will be. She has made it VERY clear that she will have a window seat...you know, to make sure the "plane flyer" knows where he's going! LOL

I am a list maker. If I don't have a list of what will be needed/required for our vacations (where ever that may be), I will, without question, leave the most important item at home. Therefore, the list has been made. I asked Mr. M. the other day to go ahead and start putting his stuff out for me so I could have them to pack. He said, "I already gave you what I want to pack!" I told him that all he'd given me was 4 shirts and his 3 swimming trunks. He said, "EXACTLY!" LOL...Men!! And Jayla, let her tell it, she's been packed now for about a month and a 1/2. She has filled her little "pully" suitcase with about 63 books! lol Guess I'd better help her out with that, huh?
Anyway, I think I've got everything we're gonna need listed. But as I'm checking stuff off, I'm seeing that I keep adding items. When does it end? One thing though, that I'm gonna make SURE I have, are my cameras. Yes, I said cameraS! My MIL told me that she wanted to buy me a camera to sorta thank me for all I do for her. I tried to talk her out of it...but she wasn't hearing it. So check out the camera she bought me yesterday...
Is that not the cutest little thing? I just love it...so far. And because it's new, I'm taking my old one as a stand-in. (this is a BIG vacation...so I can't take any chances.)

In other news, Mr. M. and I went to a party last weekend. Our good friends, V & T were celebrating their birthdays and requested that everyone wear black. We had the best time! And the food was SOOO yummy! Here's some shots from that evening.
Love you guys!!!
Also, I just have to say, FaceBook is amazing! I've been on it for a couple years and have found a bunch of people on there. I found a friend, just recently that I grew up with. She use to live across the street from me. She and I along with her sisters and brothers went to elementary and high school together. We met up for lunch this past Tuesday. She brought Jayla some flowers...how sweet is that? We came to the conclusion that it's probably been over 15 years since we've seen eachother. That's just crazy! But now we're back in touch. So cool! Love ya, Beth!
Anyway, I'm thinking this may be my last post before we leave on Sunday. However, I bought a little notepad today to do some daily journaling in while we're gone. (Yes, it was on my list!) So hopefully, I'll remember to write down all the fun we have each day.

I'll end this post with the Friday Flower Fix...you know, to hold ya'll over until I get back. ;-)
Ya'll enjoy your weekend and have a great week next week. And I'll touch base with you when we get back. Toodles!!

I so wish I'd read this post...I could have promptly emailed you my vacation check list...I created it in word and had two columns and is one page long!!! DH used to think I was crazy when I'd pull it out for every trip we'd go on...now he refuses to pack with out it!!!! This past trip to Savannah I added 4 more things to the list and mind you it's a list I've used for YEARS!! You'd think I'd be done by now! But things always change like I don't need diapers now etc!!! LOL

We are TOOOO much alike!!!
