The backpacks!!


So, I was really happy when I found an awesome backpacking backpack at Goodwill for $6.00. I was ready for anything the world threw at me 'cause I hads me the coolest backpack! ......Yeah, it was all fine and dandy until we filled it, measured it, and found that it was too big to be a carry-on. Poop.

So, the search was still on for a backpack that could fit the bill. We looked through backpacking forums to see what others were using.

We found this awesome backpack (pictured below) on sale on eBags.com. My husband bought two of them and the packing cubes, too! The backpack is called the Mother Lode TLS Weekender Convertible.


Please feel free to leave any advice, comments, or whatever! :) Thanks for reading!

Pre-Trip Status: Sleepless in Miami


sunny 90 °F

We leave to Italy on June 10th, and I am already losing sleep. I am excited and nervous at the same time because this is my first time out of the United States. I have no idea what to expect. As much as friends and family have told me what’s it’s like over there, I know that experiencing it for oneself is the only real way of knowing what’s out there. I’ve searched website after website, sponging up as much information as I can from things like backpacking to crime to tourist traps.

I’ve slept about 3 hours every night since we got our plane tickets (about a week ago). I guess that would be enough sleep for an average Jane, but working with seventeen 5-year-old’s with only a few hours of rest could take a toll on a person!

If you have any advice or comments on traveling out of the country, please feel free to post!!
