Packing Lightly.. I Have No Clue What that Means

Friday, January 17, 2014

Hello and happy Friday! Whew has it been one heck of a week. I know personally I feel like I've been put through the ringer and hung out to dry. But it's Friday and things are looking up.

Why are things looking up you might ask? Well I get to see my fiance this evening! Yep, that's right. I'm taking the train down to South Carolina today. And let's be real, I'm a little nervous about my solo trip on the train. I hope it's not too sketchy. But really I'm just hoping I can get a little help with my luggage. Because honestly, when it comes to packing lightly, I have no clue what that means.

John and I are going on the grand journey to Keesler AFB, Mississippi. Why do I get the feeling I'm going to a super po-dunk town? I might be wrong, but I just get that feeling. It's right on the beach though. Maybe I can talk John into going down to the beach before his surgery?! Just maybe. I've never seen the any "ocean" other than the Atlantic. I'd be so excited to see the Gulf of Mexico even if it is the middle of winter right now.

So anyway, it is going to be one long trip. Well, just the drive will be the long part I suppose. Within the weekend I will have been approximately 1,325 miles. That's a very long way. But I'm planning to bring lots of entertainment cue all 21 hours of Game of Thrones audio-book plus The Lightening Theif audio-book (for the trip back) as well. I'm going to get my reading on. But right now I'm going to get my groove on. I've always wanted to do this link up so today is the day to #backthatazzup with Whitney from I Wore Yoga Pants. In honor of the small towns I probably will drive through we will listen to some small town fun!
