And we're off...!!

Hello! I am writing from Charlotte NC! WooHoo! Hubby and the kids and I are staying in a hotel tonight so that getting to the airport in the am will be easy peasy! They will be seeing me off bright and early and since the airport is almost 3 hours away from home we thought this was the best way to go!

Today was a whirlwind of activity trying to get ready to go! I am the world's worst packer and trying to keep my suitcases under the weight limit was a major challenge! I am a big believer of bringing an extra of everything just in case! I will be holding my breath tomorrow when they weigh my luggage! Wish me luck! LOL

I spent forever getting my swaps all gathered and packaged up today! Three months ago I set myself a goal of making between 450-480 swaps for convention. I wound up making 452! I decided to stop there because the more I made the more concerned I became about weight and space during travel! I had the best time making my swaps though and cannot wait to make a ton of new friends swapping them all out! :) Here is what they all looked like together:

Ok, well we are going to hit the pool for a while! I am going to try to update every night with details from the day during Convention! *bouncing!* Next time I check in I will be writing from Utah! :) I haven't flown in years and although I am a little nervous about the checking in hub-bub I am really excited about the flight!

Have a super night! I will talk to you soonest!
