My much anticipated graduation vacation is right around the corner. My husband and I have not been on a vacation alone (just for us) since our honeymoon (yea...four years ago...you would think we had kids or something!). We have gone on vacation....but it has been to see family...or for work. Needless to say I am SUPER excited about our trip to Puerto Rico and our cruise of the Caribbean.
If you know me, which I am sure most of you do by now, packing is always a process. Its not that big of a deal when going to visit family. I normally do it the night before....and throw EVERYTHING in the suitcase. I have been known to pack 8 pairs of shoes for a quick weekend trip. There was never any problem until the damn airlines started charging for the bags. Now I am limited to one bag UNDER 50 lbs! HUGE PROBLEM.
I prefer to pack like this:
So I started to plan out our stuff for the cruise. My guest bedroom has turned into an oasis of stuff I HAVE to pack. New magazine in the mailbox? straight on the bed. Found an extra deodorant under the sink? straight to the room. It's kind of a type A person's dream (or nightmare). I placed my husbands clothes from our honeymoon in Tahiti on the bed (his hawaiian type shirts that are kept in the guest room closet because he can't wear them normally without being made fun of...TRUE STORY).
Just fifteen minutes ago, as I was putting away laundry, I decided to pull the essentials, ya know the undies. Now I fully respect anyone that has the balls to go commando but for me....I prefer to cover my assets.
Packing underwear for guys and girls is very different.....let's take a look at what just transpired:
HIM: I counted the days we would be gone...and added 2 for just in case (there is nothing worse than needing an extra pair of underwear and not having it!). There he is done. Pulled them out of his drawer and moved on....
Me: I counted the days we would be gone. Then I counted the amount of times I think I would wear a thong. I decided its hard to really know when you will wear a thong without knowing what outfit you are planning for each day. I can't think that far ahead. So to be clear..I'll just bring all thongs....OH but wait....I don't really like to sleep in thongs....so I need to bring some boyshorts/briefs (not granny panties)! Maybe I will bring half thongs and half boyshorts/briefs. No but what if I need one more than the other? I'll just bring enough of both.
I won't even embarrass myself by letting you know how much undies I packed.....let's just say its more than my husband has packed (times two!).
Thank god, they don't take up too much room!
Now on to shoes.......
