Oh my word, packing for an overnight trip is crazy. I've done it before, but not in quite a while, so I must have become unaccustomed. And I'm not talking about packing for kids. We all know that kids require an exorbitant amount of stuff. No, I'm talking about myself. I consider myself a decently light packer, in comparison to other girls. But while I was packing for this little getaway, I couldn't help the awe that was everything I brought.
I think what makes it so difficult is that you only use everything once. I bring my entire bathroom for one night, to use everything once. It just seemed a little excessive. But a girl can't go on an anniversary trip without her curling iron, or her makeup, which requires makeup remover, plus she needs to shower, which requires shampoo, conditioner, body wash a razor and on and on and on.
See what I mean?
This is my bag. For clothes, I had an outfit for today, pajamas, a cardigan and leggings in case it got cool and unmentionables. The rest. Cosmetics that probably could have been left behind but I didn't want to. It's crazy to think that besides more clothes, this is the same amount of stuff I would bring for an entire weekend. But, a girl has to look pretty on her anniversary getaway, and if this is what it takes, then so be it. I guess I'd just rather look pretty than pack light.
