I'm a horrible packer. Like, really bad. I always think if I put all of my favorites in a bag they'll magically assemble into amazing outfits once I reach our destination. Cue "I don't have anything to wear" meltdowns. So you can imagine how nervous my husband was when I chirped that I was only bringing 8 items of clothing and 3 pairs of shoes (minus vow renewal wear) for 10 days of vacation spanning temperatures from the 30s to the 80s. But it actually turned out pretty good.
And just in case you think all I did was get dressed mostly alone, I offer up proof of a fun vacation with other people:
OOOOK. Well, I actually also met with Torrie and Casie which was super fun and like getting together with friends because I happened to be in the area, rather than a first meeting with people I had only "talked" to online. We actually closed down the restaurant talking about family, blogging, and life in general. I have no photo proof, though. We were too busy eating and drinking and laughing to remember to take photos. Bad bloggers, bad.
Oh, and I also re-eloped to Vegas with this guy:
We didn't get Elvis this time (he was booked) but we did get to experience a drive-through wedding. And bawling through my second set of vows. The actual ceremony didn't show off my dress properly so our very nice photographer Fernando made us get out of the car for more photos. He was very specific in his posing instructions, which is how we ended up with the above.
Can we just talk about the dress

Everything else thrifted
