In less than 48 hours my family and I will load into the killer mini van and embark on our long journey that will take us to California. Disneyland, Sea World and the beach are our destinations and I can't wait. I have a bad habit of setting super high expectations for things like this, like Clark Griswold and his Griswold Family Christmas. Usually, things don't work out and I get pissed moody, but not this time (thank you mom). I will expect the unexpected and be prepared for fun. BUT....that doesn't mean I can't try and save as much money as possible and be incredibly organized in the process. This is when I am happy that I am harboring an OCD thing. Here is what I have started.

This is my bed right now... my piles to pack.

I made cards for everyone and put them on top to make sure that I have everything.....

I can't wait to see how my OCD takes control and helps me pack 6 of us, including a double stroller, a pack and play, pillows, beach stuff, coolers, and what ever else under the sun into the killer mini van. It is going to be quite a challenge.

But I can't wait because of these two:


  1. Oh, how I'd love to be there with you when Delaney and Brody get their first glimpse of Mickey Mouse! Pictures, please! Lots and lots of pictures! (And just so you know - the whole OCD Clark Griswold thing is from your father)
    xoxo have a wonderful time. Mom

  2. I have the same OCD! I am a list making fool when it comes to trips!
    Have fun! I can't wait to see ALL of the pictures.

  3. Hope you have a safe trip. Have fun and take lots of pictures. Can't wait to hear all about it. :-)

  4. I do the same thing when I go on trips. Everyone has a list with their names on it to remind me what to pack. I am an organized freak when it comes to these kinds of things. Have a great time in California! I lived there for 6 years and there are plenty of fun things to do!

  5. Have fun!!! The kids will love it! I totally make list too, but still forget stuff!! Have a safe trip =)

  6. i had a giant list when james and i went and it was just the two of us! i know you are going to have so much fun :) i can't wait to see pictures!

  7. I hope you have a great time and enjoy yourself. Just watch those babies and their smiles:)


I totally appreciate you taking the time to comment! I love it! However, I reserve the right to delete any comment that is inappropriate or malicious. No need for that here:) Thanks in advance!
