are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet

K. I am all packed up. My little lexus looks like a bonafide minivan, all stuffed with pillows and dog beds and toys and shoes hangin out the back. I THOUGHT I was totally organized until I actually started PACKING the car.

It was all downhill from then. I wanted everything to be stacked and neat, like a pottery barn. But then it was "oh! shit! I totally forgot THAT suitcase!" and "hey...I totally need those towels, I'll just throw em in." and "OH almost forgot the dog toys and treats...I'll stuff em in this corner.".....and so on and so forth.

I was so excited packing this morning and here's why..."hmmmm, what should my FIRST roadie breakfast be? A croissan'wich? An egg McMuffin? Jack in the box breakfast bowl? Carl's Jr. French toast sticks?!?!?!? 7-11 donuts/taquitoes?!

All the breakfast foods that are totally unacceptable except on rare occasions, or ROADTRIPS!! Drive thru starbucks here I come!!


Today's coming attractions..

FIRST STOP VEGAS: Oh yah baby, hit me! Gimme a royal flush, cuz mama needs a NEW PAIR o' shoes and some chicken fried steak!

NEXT STOP: UTAH! Craft time! Keep your eyes peeled for a new blog layout perhaps?!?

PS..I'll be uploading little road trip tidbits, as I go along. So if you're bored out of your skull today...CHECK back by this blog!

Is your blog magically metamorphosing while you drive?!

I'll miss all the fun pictures!

As for the roadtrip food, I am in total agreement. Eat to your heart's content. And when you get to the South they actually make biscuits from scratch at MickeyD's so I recommend a sausage biscuite with egg and cheese. YUM!

You will have a great time. Especially when you see me. That will clearly be the highlight.

Hmmm...I never would have thought you were the crafty type. But I guess Utah would be the place to do it!! I'm not on a road trip, but I'm currently eating a chocolate donut I picked up when I went to the gas station for an emergency Mountain Dew. I'm a rebel. Happy Driving!

Is your Utah crafty time tonight or sometime tomorrow (I need to know if I need to get off the couch and start cleaning - and get working on the potato rolls and rc treats)

you really let a WET dog in your car - a car that you are stuck in for the next week - you are a better parent than me!

Hearing about road trips always reminds me of Dumb & Dumber. Don't pull a Lloyd and drive the wrong way, please. Watch those road signs! =)

I keep checking your blog, again, and again, and again for a post. Desperately looking for some sign that you haven't gotten off track and permanently taken residence in Reno, NV as a card dealer.

There is nothing.

Send us a sign.

Sigh... I wish I were going with you. We could've taken my car, it has a big trunk.

I love road trips! There's nothing like hitting all the convenience stores along the way and eating roadside junk food. Look forward to reading more on your road trip adventure!
