I'm writing to you all from the Cleveland airport, where I have a short layover before getting back on the plane to head to Las Vegas. It's been a looooong day! But I'm excited to arrive in Vegas and check into the hotel. I've got a great group of friends and colleagues that I am meeting there for what I'm sure will be a fabulous few days with the amazing Kevin Hogan. I'm planning to post pics, so be sure to stay tuned.
Last night I packed for the trip. I've become a much better traveller since the year I went to Sweden, that's for sure! All the work I personally put into designing my own wardrobe has paid off. I can now pack successfully for a trip in very little time, taking very little with me.
For kicks and giggles, I'm going to share with you what I packed. I started with a skeleton of two tops and two bottoms that I can mix. Then I added in a third outfit, just for fun. A dressy top in case I go out. A great jacket. Enough lingerie to last the trip. Two pairs of shoes. Voila! It didn't even fill half my carry-on. I could certainly get away with just the skeleton of outfits and a few extra accessories, but since I have the room, I decided to take a little bit more. The one thing missing is a swimsuit...but I doubt I'll have time for the pool, so that's one thing I will leave home that I might otherwise take.
The only challenge in packing was realizing I had to pull out some of my warmer-weather outfits to take. We in New Hampshire have already done the great switcheroo to our fall clothes, but Vegas is supposed to be in the 80's while I'm there. Not that I'm complaining, not by any stretch!
Oh...they are calling my flight, so I'd better go!
