5 days and counting....

10 years ago, Darren and I didn't need a passport to travel to the Bahamas, where we married. Today, thanks to 9/11, passports are a must. Darren and I applied for them about 8 weeks ago. Darren received his passport two Mondays ago. I received a rejection letter 2 days later in the mail. I'm not sure why? After providing additional proof of who I am, and a little aggravation/anxiety about possibly NOT getting my passport on time, I FINALLY received it!
I have been packing since last Saturday. Yes, 2 1/2 weeks in advance. Each outfit is laid out, ironed, and waiting to be placed in our luggage, even my pjs are ironed! Can you tell I'm excited.

On Wednesday, I bought new luggage. I look around everywhere and couldn't resist Jessica Simpson's luggage line. It's so gorgeous. I didn't think Darren would appreciate lugging around a suitcase with polka dots (even if they are navy blue) so I bought him a solid navy blue suitcase. Now it's just time to fill them up with our belongings.

PS. These suitcases were insanely expensive. They were on sale however for 60% off plus I had a 20% off coupon on top of that. At the bottom of my receipt it read, "YOU SAVE $645.00. I was ecstatic. If you need luggage, now is a great time to go get it. BELK is where this great savings took place.
