Summer is right around the corner, so these will be great tips to remember!  Follow along with me as I go into more detail on these tips this week and next!

When do you start getting ready for a trip?


  1. Love your tips. It's always a hassle to organize everything before the trip:)

  2. You're headed to my town! Have fun at the run. I did it last year and loved it.
    I think this is a really good breakdown. Usually I run around like a headless chicken the night before.

  3. Depends on where we are going. When we stayed at Great Wolf Lodge over the weekend, I packed the night before.
