// chicago here we come! photo's via //

i am too excited! the fireman and i are leaving for Chicago tomorrow!!! yippppy! our birthday{s} are two weeks apart, so we try and take a little trip (just the two of us) to celebrate! with Christmas right around the corner we attempt to not do birthday gifts... but it actually never seems to work. remember what i got him?! those a-ma-zing Red Wing boots! which {i'm hoping} will be perfect for the cold Chicago weather. AND he already gave me my gift (!)... a new point & shoot camera to always have on me... ya know, in case of an emergency photo-montage!! duh! both are great gifts for our chilly but adventurous trip to Chi-Town! whoop whoop! NOW... if i could only finish our packing!!! oh yeah that's right, i pack for the fireman too. lucky guy! so here is how to pack for a vacation... at least a little system that works for me!

i have all the items {checked in pink} packed... now i just need to help out with our restaurant eating & yummy beer drinking to-do list! the fireman already has the wishlist started (yay!). i know it may sound a tad bit glutinous, but those are the only two things on our Chicago to-do list! oh, and to relax! eat, drink, & relax! 
{i can't wait!}

bevy said...

wow, that is quite the packing checklist, but very helpful I'm sure.

I don't think I could handle the responsibility of packing for another adult person. but if he trusts you, it works!
