Packing Light

You guys. Seriously, I have two weeks of life packed into a LL Bean backpack. Ridiculous, right? I did a good job of packing light on the Baltimore trip, but this is unreal. I really impressed myself.

I've got a TSA-approved one quart bag of liquids - shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, Febreze, dry shampoo, toothpaste, even tiny travel size makeup thanks to all those free samples from my sister!

I've got Sperry's and boots, two sweaters, a flannel button down shirt, a white tee, tank top, two pairs of jeans, a scarf, a light jacket and socks/bra/underwear. I tried to layer up as much as possible for the plane so I could pack less in the bag. but now, I'm sweating. Shoot.

I've got a gallon bag with all my chargers, headphones and European converter and adapter. My iPad, of course (hence this blog post). And my Rome map and travel guide that my sister and brother-in-law got me for Christmas.

And then there are things like a towel (apparently European towels are TINY), a shopping bag for souvenirs, an 'I # STL' water bottle from Loufest,, and, oh yeah, my passport.

I can't wait to share photos with you! But you've seen my packing list... Don't judge me if my outfit is ugly, my hair looks like shit, or I need bronzer.

Bon voyage!
