The big day is almost here! Four more days and I’ll be flying to Kentucky to visit my bff, Liz. Something you Coffee Break readers may not realize is that Liz and I don’t live near each other. I live in Utah, and Liz lives all the way over in Kentucky. That’s nearly 1500 miles apart. In fact, in the last 27 years or so, we’ve only seen each other face-to-face for a total of a few hours. Are you as shocked by that as we are? All I can say is thank goodness for emails…and cell phones…and texting…and websites, to keep us in touch with each other.
We’ve decided it’s high time we remedy that situation, so I will be spending the next two weeks having a big old extended sleep-over party at Liz’s house. So here is fair warning readers, for the next two weeks we have no idea what kind of craziness might ensue. But whatever nonsense we get ourselves into, you’ll be the first to know…we promise.
So over the last few days I’ve started looking through my clothes and picking out what outfits to pack for the trip. I will admit I’m not what you’d call a slave to fashion, but I do want to look cute/fashionable/stylish while I’m there. (On a side note here which you may find amusing, I recently went to see Avatar: The Last Airbender, and I was bored to tears. So bored in fact, that I spent the entire middle section of the movie daydreaming about which outfits to pack. True story.)
These days, I’m all about the accessories. I’m especially a fan of long, chunky, chain-y necklaces and big dangly hoop-y earrings. On my recent family vacation to CA., I discovered a clever packing tip for these necklaces and earrings. One that will help any traveler arrive at their destination without a ginormous tangled mess of jewelry.
Zip Lock Baggies!
