13 Things To Pack For Vacation

We are planning a vacation get away in a few weeks to Lake Michigan with our friends. I thought my Thursday 13 would be a great way to get my list of things together that I need to pack. I hope I don't forget anything.

1. Cash. This is the most important item. Can't do anything without that special green paper.

2. Sun glasses. I would die without my shades.

3. Bathing suite. Just picked a new one up a Kohl's a few weeks ago. I have to say I'm not looking forward to wearing it. YUCK!!

4. Toothbrush. This is very important. I don't want to blow my friends away with morning breath. That would be gross!!

5. Shorts and tank tops. For those hot sunny days.

6. Camera. So I can take pictures of our fun time and show all my blog friends.

7. Sun tan lotion. I have to keep working on my tan. We only get about 3 or 4 months of sun here in Michigan. It's nice to have some color part of the year.

8. Makeup. Though I don't think I'll be wearing much of this.

9. Deodorant. Don't want to be stinky and scare my friends away. LOL!!

10. Sandals. Just purchased a new pair of Earth Spirit and they are the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned.

11. Of course I have to pack all my daughters clothes. That's a huge task to complete.

12. The cooler. We are going to need lots of lunch stuff, munchies and drinks for on the way up there.

13. Oh Yes, I almost forgot! I guess I better not forget to bring my hubby. Though I don't think I'll pack him in my suit case. I don't think he'll fit. LOL!!


  1. LOL on the last photo. That's funny...and reminds me of my hubby...he does the same thing when a camera is pointed to him

    My 13 is published, hope you can stop by sometime.

  2. How about snacks?! Don't forget munchies. :P

    Yeah, can't forget #13. Who will carry #1 through #12? LOL!!

  3. Yeah, it'd be a bad idea to stuff hubby in a suitcase. Although there are days when I'm tempted...

    Have a great vacation!

  4. He looks a little stressed. Hope you have a relaxing vacation.

  5. Even if you wanted to pack the hubby, do you have a big enough bag?

  6. Fun list - and hurray for vacation! Good for you for giving yourself a great break! :)

    Happy TT

  7. Funny!

    I always forget my toothbrush.

    Please stop by mine:

  8. Cash would be really important. Have a great vacation. We're going to take ours in the Fall when Disneyworld isn't so busy. It's a Christmas gift from my parents.

  9. Great list, my 33rd TT is up at 13 Muslim Greeting Cards - I noted the paucity of Islamic Greeting Cards at my local stationery store and so as a public service to Muslims in America, I offer the following 13 Shariah-Compliant Greeting Cards...

  10. Sounds like you are prepared. I always forget something and have to go to the store! Hope you have an exciting vacation! Happy TT!


  11. The worst thing is unpacking when you get home. I've been home 2 days and have stuff all over the place. Good excuse - the cat has kittens in my closet and I don't want to upset her. Seriously, I don't want her moving them elsewhere, so I have stuff piled...!

  12. We are taking a mini overnighter this weekend to Long Beach. I cant wait. I will be sure to double check my packing list:) Happy TT.

  13. what fun you are going to have a blast

  14. Those all seem like handy vacation things to have. Not sure about #13, though. How many suitcases can he carry at one time?

    Happy 13! Have a great trip!

  15. Sounds like you are ready to roll...have fun.

  16. Fun list! I'm totally jealous. Don't forget the insect repellent. It comes in handy at times. Happy T13!

  17. Have fun on your trip, sometimes Moms just have to get away without dad and the

  18. Very funny! Better bring the hubby or my boys will be very upset!!!!

  19. That is a fun idea for a T13. Sounds like it will be a nice trip.

  20. Fun list and I agree probably best to not stuff the hubby in a suitcase. Happy TT
