what's in the case?

Happy Tuesday!

And what a busy Tuesday it is going to be! A big meeting at work leaves me only 4 hours of precious time. Crunch time. Time to get everything checked off my list at work before I check out for 7 glorious days in Turks and Caicos!

Since the potential for me to work late today is very high, we decided it was super important for us to get 99% packed last night. This is a first for me. My typical MO is to procrastinate until the very last second, throw a million things in to suitcases that I never wear and pray that I have everything. Not this time baby, we are all set to go, a whole day early.

Here is what we started with, one large rolling suitcase.

All the necessities. 


My husband's list. He checks, rechecks, rechecks again and then gives it a once over just for good measure. He is obsessed. I guarantee he will re-open the suitcase and just count one more time before we take off.

And his stuff took up pretty much the entire thing! Thank God we have a carry on as well...such a diva!

The fun bathing suits! 
The Classics.

J.Crew lovelies.

Lilly (from my shopping spree the other weekend)

More Lilly and Vineyard Vines

Why hello you lovely romper!

Beach cover-ups.

Sightseeing anyone?

traveling outfits.

All the odds and ends.

and somehow it all fit....thank goodness! 

Oh! I forgot one thing..... Reid brought this to me while I was packing because he said I missed it.....it was my birthday present!  Isn't he a sweetie???? He wanted to give it to me early so I could enjoy it on our trip! I am one lucky girl!

Well, that about rounds up what's in my suitcase. Guess you will just have to follow along on insta to see them all in action. 

Ok y'all, is there anything I am missing?

 You must tune in tomorrow because there will be a very special guest blogger to share her favorite vacation!!



don't miss one minute of fun ~ follow along!
