That's a lotta Clothes!

Right now I'm making our packing list for vacation.  It is 7 pages long.  OCD list making and obsessive packing make for one long, crazy packing list, I admit it. 

For vaction hubster got 4 new pairs of shorts, 4 new pairs of shoes, lots of new chonies and sleep t shirts ( you really don't need the number), 5 new polo shorts, 6 new tee shirts, and 5 new button down shirts.

I got 3 new pairs of spanx (huzza!), new dainties (what we call panties/bras around here), 3 new pairs of shoes, 6 new dresses, 8 new shirts, and 4 new pairs of shorts. 

We are gone for 8 nights.  We may be over packing.  Or I may have over shopped....

Counting Down...

Every night Hubster and I have the official countdown ceremony, usually as I am prepping dinner.

Our countdown ceremony is:  taking turns putting up the days countdown Mickey head while the other person applauds and we say yay vacation!  I know...we are weird...

Rather than doing classic mickey colors (don't want to get too burnt out on the red, white, and black) I went more vacation-y with a tropical tiki theme.  Which is perfect because I am a tiki NUT! 

Sorry if the pic isn't great - I took it with my phone.

Having a countdown calendar is fun but not so fun.  For some reason seeing the days up seems to make it go by so much slooowwwweerrrrr....  I like it better when I check online every few days and am pleasantly surprised that it is 5 days less than the last day I looked.

I hope you have something fun to count down to!

Adventure Camp!

If you purchased Adventures Away, Haynay Designs Up themed kit, you don't want to miss out on the grab bag she put together to celebrate Scrap Matters Birthday.  Adventure Camp uses the same color scheme and coordinates perfectly, but is... you guessed themed.  But it also works so well for camping pages and any outdoors theme.  The grab bag is such a bargain at $4.50, so go grab it while it's on sale for the birthday celebration!

It's the first again and that means Mix a Kit!

The colors for this months Mix a Kit are awesome and Heather came up with some cool vintage feeling elements to match.  Check out all of the goodness

And here is the page I made with it.  Not only are these papers and elements cool and retro, they are also perfect for Disney pages!
