I’m a horrible packer. Yep, as much as I try, I simply cannot pack “just” the essentials… I’m a girl and I change my mind, or feel like something doesn’t fit correctly and let’s face it, my mood changes a lot so I never know what I am going to feel like bringing on a trip. That’s where packing bags come into play… easy to compartmentalize, easy to group items together [workout wear, unmentionables, jeans, tops, toiletries, etc] and these handy dandy ones from Ikea are just $10 for a pack of four. I use them for pretty much anywhere I go and have started using them for the girls, too! Money well spent to feel WAY more organized when we’re away from home.
Please tell me I’m not the only one out there that isn’t doing a fancy date night out Sunday night?? Instead, Jeff and I decided that since we’ve both been traveling so much, we wanted to take the girls out for a family date night instead… we’ve got a fun evening planned, packed with Kung Fu Panda 3 at the movies, and then out to eat wherever the girls choose. Heavens, V-day plans sure have changed, and I wouldn’t have it ANY other way!
