pedicures and packing

Tomorrow is the day I have been looking forward to for quite some time. I am going to the Bahamas! So of course I had to prepare myself to relax for a week. Pedicures were first on my list. My mom and I indulged with a few friends at a local spa. The hardest part of the day was picking one color for my toes. I can never make up my mind. 
Later, while I let my toes dry, I packed for the anticipated warm weather. I love to pack! Picking out outfits for a week was so much fun! I cannot wait to wear all the bright colors, light weight fabrics and sandals. A tip I love to share when packing is to make outfits. First, I write out "must have" pieces to bring, then I make outfits from that. I don't just pack separate articles. I like to prepare myself for complete looks, and not worry too much on vacation. Once full outfits are put together (tops, bottoms, accessories) I lay them on my bed and go over the weeks plans. If I need to add layers, or possible changes I do so then.  And of course my puppy likes to help me. Here are some photos from the day...
