Memorial Day Vacay Prep...

Hello lovelies!  I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but the hubs and I are taking a little trip this upcoming weekend for Memorial Day!  We are hopping on a plane on Friday and heading south to Scottsdale, Arizona for four days...sans the little guy.  I am extremely excited for our little get away, but I seriously feel like I am so far behind this week and it's only Tuesday!  I am running around like a chicken with my head chopped off, trying to get things in order for while we are gone.

Yesterday was mowing and trimming of the lawn, laundry, and cleaning.  Today is running of errands to get all the toiletries and extra "stuff" that is needed for vacations.  (All of that takes a full day in itself...but shhhhh!  I secretly love this part of vacation prep!)  Tomorrow is the start of packing.  I've already picked out a few things that I'm wearing, but I haven't fully committed to just anything yet.  You know how that goes!  I just don't quite know what I will need, depending on all that we do!  I always end up over packing, but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

Here are a few of my options.  Which ones are your faves?  Which ones need to stay home in my closet?  I need your honest opinions!!

Then Thursday I've got a mani/pedi scheduled because heaven forbid my nails and tootsies are bare down in that tropical sun!  Followed by last minute packing and list making for my parents for when they watch M.  And, of course, packing for A.  He is like a man child when it comes to that.  Seriously, is my husband the only man who is refuses to pack his own bag?  Drives me nuts!  So, basically, I am packing for three!

Then Friday morning we are off!  I cannot wait until we step onto that plane, because then that means all I have to worry about is relaxing and working on my tan!

I don't know all of our plans yet, but I do know there will most definitely be some a lot of lounging by the pool, shopping, amazing eating,  and an early morning mountain hike on Saturday morning.  I don't know what it is about hiking, but it seriously is one of the best workouts you can do.  It works all your muscles, but at the same time, gives you some beautiful sites to take in.  I can guarantee you one thing:  I will definitely not forget to take pictures this weekend!
This is the mountain we will be hiking:  Thompson Peak...it's 6 miles up, for a total of 12 miles there and back!
We've been to Scottsdale a few times before, and we absolutely love it, but is there anything y'all would recommend we see or do there?  I am always looking for new and exciting things to try and would love your feedback if you've been to the area before!

Welp, I better get back to my "to-do" list...unfortunately it can't complete itself :(

Until next time...


  1. I LOVE them all but 1, 3 and 5 are my favs!! You are so skinny, girl!! But it's the good fit and toned skinny! I hope you guys have an amazing time!! Oh my husbands packs his own bad, BUT....it is usually RIGHT BEFORE WE LEAVE! UGH...

    1. Seriously, bless your skinny little heart Lori! :) I really appreciate the feedback...it's so hard to make decisions all by yourself, because I end up second guessing myself and it is just a merry-go-round cycle! But at least your husband packs his own bag! That would be a huge accomplishment in this house!!

  2. Love them all, but my fave is the short yellow skirt! Have a great trip! Be sure to eat at In-N-Out Burger! (My hubby's fave!)
