But with that said, once I'm there, I know I'll have a blast. I'm going with my friend of 20 years (I can't believe it's been that long!), Jen, and we both couldn't be more excited to hang out with each other and attend the wedding of our friend. :) We are staying an extra day so we can hang out in downtown Chicago. :)
Chris and the kids will be heading north to his parents for the weekend. The kids are beyond excited...which makes leaving them a little easier. :)
Here are some random getting ready to travel pics:
*We had some bananas which would have gone bad by the time we returned. So this morning Kendall and I made one of my favorite kid snacks. I mix peanut butter, mashed bananas, and oats to the consistency of cookie dough. I add a few chocolate chips and bake them. These are sooo great to freeze and pop in Cam's snack bag for school.
*Since I can't do straight coffee, I'm packing several individual creamers in anticipation of both coffee served on the airplane and our hotel room. :) I never found a copy of my Hunger Games book, but I did snag several magazines from the library. I'm also stocked to the brim with Dr. Laura podcasts. :)
Okay...I need to finish packing and getting ready for our night of Halloween fun (we are just trick or treating)... Happy Halloween!!
