...and I'm off!

Thursday, October 11, 2012

I booked a trip to LA early this summer and ended up canceling in the day before I was supposed to leave. Then I did the same thing again just two weeks later. I know I've mentioned this before, but work has been a little crazy the past year and there just hasn't been a good time to go. Great aunt Rose has had some health issues, my best friend had a baby in January (and I still haven't met her). It's been 10 months. The time has come. My bags are packed and I am actually leaving. Today. Here are a few essentials I'll be bringing with me.

I'm having dinner with my oldest friend in the world tonight. Spending Friday with one of my sisters. Lunch with Brittney and Kim (The Everygirl's contributing finance editor and one of our photographers) at one of my favorite spots. Time with the family. A manicure at my favorite nail salon. Brows at Damone Roberts. A day trip to Santa Barbara to spend a day with my best friend and her 3 peanuts. And most important–I'll get to see aunt Rose. Oh. It'll be in the 70s-80s in LA. I love Chicago but definitely miss the CA weather.

Thank you to my wonderful friends who are helping with Buddy.
