Three Things Thursday - Two More Sleeps

Two more sleeps until my big vacation.  I think excitement is reaching new levels in our house since the girls are sleeping like crap this week.

1) I threw out my back on Saturday when I was cleaning my house in the big pre-trip clean up.  It's doing MUCH better now that I have been to the chiropractor a couple of times.  One more trip and an ice pack should get me quite better before I get on the plane.  This is awesome because while I wouldn't mind being restricted to just laying around in a hammock for the entire vacation - it would be nice to be able to get OUT of the hammock too!

Unfortunately - this whole thing has affected my newfound yoga practice. :(  I am hoping I will be able to start it up again when we get to the resort.


2) Doubters begone!   I totally managed to pack an entire family of 4 for a 7-day vacation in carry on bags only WITHOUT the need for additional bags.  It feels really good to know that we only have these 4 tiny bags to manage for the entire trip.  Funny thing is - I still think I have slightly overpacked us.  Makes me laugh when I think of all of the giant suitcases we have brought on our past trips.

I'm working on a post on how I did it and, once I can say how well it went, I will post it for y'all after the trip...

To occupy yourselves in the meantime (since I know you are all glued to your seats waiting) - if you'd like a good laugh you should go read the itemized list if things you can pack as carry on from the CATSA website. I was busting a gut laughing at some of the items (but that could just be because my imagination goes to some pretty creative places...


3) As a special treat, I have arranged a few special guest bloggers for next week and a special post from me in honour of my twin girlies 5th Birthdays!

Hope you are all having a lovely and pain free week.


  1. Have a great trip!!! And I would love to know how you packed your carry on for all of you. I'd love to be able to do that for our Disney trip in the fall!

  2. Have a blast on your trip - our last trip to Disney in December, I packed 4 of us, one being a baby, with 3 carry ons and a diaper bag! It was awesome. Difficult at times, but awesome not to have to pay.

  3. Happy travels! Those of us who lug 2 large bags plus carry ons every trip will definitely need more info on the packing tricks...
