Party in the USA!

Okay people! It's D-Day. 4:56am on Friday the 26th of March. Can you believe it's finally here?

(Do I sound sufficiently preppy above? I'm trying - but honestly, I'm so tired right now that I don't really care if I go on a holiday or not! lol!).

Turns out packing is really hard. It's funny that I've only just figured that out, considering how many times I've done it in the past, but seriously, it's hard. I've been 'packing' for a few hours now, and still only have one or two things in the suitcases! To be fair, I had to try on every item of clothing I own, so that took a while. And then I had to put a wash through and it's still in the dryer, so that's taking time. I've packed my shoes (only taking 4 pairs), but toiletries are totally getting the better of me. They just seem too difficult to gather, so I've been procrastinating (hence this blog entry). I've been kinda wondering what would happen if I just didn't finish packing! B would probably come over and finish it for me... hmmm.... perhaps not a terrible option...

Okay. I'd better go. Have to iron my clothes, have a shower, blow dry my hair (actually, I'd better hurry), and then get the other clothes out of the dryer and pack quickly! Ahhh! Where did the night go?!

Next time I jump on, I suspect I'll be somewhere in Washington State (depending of course on exactly where EMILY lives)! Yay! :)

PS. A special shout out to my wonderful sister Jessima who obediently gave birth to my nephew before I left on holidays. Thanks Jessima - he's PERFECT :)

Well, I didn't think that I would get on your blog the morning of your going and NOT be the first to post a comment! lol You haven't even left yet!
Haha! I TOLD you packing would take more than 10 minutes!
We love you Tam. I know you will start to get excited when you are on the plane ready for take-off,if not before. I hope you have an amazingly wonderful time!! Do you remember our first trip over? I had to practically drag you onto the plane.
We'll miss you, but really hope you have lots of FUN :)

Have a great time Tammy. I love the airport I always dream of going places. I've only done the trip to the States (via Taiwan) once, its sooo long. But little trips are heaps of fun, even thought I paid for the ticket, it feels like I'm getting all these wonderful things for free... meals, movies, toys for the kids etc. I know silly cause really I paid for that. Holidays are wonderful. I was about to say bring me back something, but I realised there's nothing I want and I'm super way down low on the list of someone deserving a souveniour. :) You know nieces and nephews first, siblings, parents, close friends, work mates, YW, neighbours, etc then me. It's late I'm tired and rambling. It just seems that whenever someone goes overseas you think they must have something over there I'm missing out on, but we pretty much are a global market now. So forget the above random request and have fun hahaha.

Lol I hope you got sleep on the plane!!! And I'm glad Jordan came before you left - he's sooo cute, I'm sure he'll be even more so when you get back, that's the way these things seem to go :) I hope you have everything you need!! As long as you have Oz chocolate you should be able to get the rest over there :) xo
