21 days and counting

Counting down that is!

In 3 weeks. 3 WEEKS! I leave for Florida. Although, I do have an overnight stay in Seattle. In which I still need to book a hotel room. Dont' worry, I will, I've got time. 21 days still.

Let me tell you. I'm ready for this vacation. I'm ready to get out of California. I'm ready for a break from work. I'm ready to go somewhere new. (that's right, I've never been to Florida.) I'm ready to see a friend that I haven't seen in many months. I'm ready.

All I have to do is pack.

Oh, and get my hair done. My appointment is on the 25th.

And the eyebrows! My oh my, they need attention. While I get the eyebrows done I might as well get the toes done too. Right?

So here's the big question...

WHAT DO I PACK??? What kind of weather shall I expect while I'm there?

I've been told (which may or may not happen...) that I'm not allowed to bring my giant suitcase. You know, the kind that is the size of a steamer trunk that can easily hold WAY over 50 pounds worth of clothes, shoes, make-up, toiletries, etc. I'm going to try my darnedest to fit it all into a "reasonable" size suitcase.

But let's me honest here, this is me packing. I'm packing for about 11 days. I took the giant suitcase for 5 days to Southern California.

I was told that "If you bring that giant suitcase I'm going to be SO embarrassed.", "Are you sure that thing will even fit in a car? What about an SUV? Are we going to need a trailer to get it to my parent's house? It's not like you're coming to Alaska in the winter. All you need is shorts and a shirt or two."

My reply: It fits in the trunk of my compact car. And I will drag it myself. I don't need your stinkin' help!

At least I'm not going to Alaska in December (unlike last year). Sweatshirts and lots of jeans are not needed, bulk is not needed.

I still like my options though.

Is it a blue shirt day or a green shirt day? The brown flip flops or the black ones?

So. For those of you that have been to Florida or live there (or near there), what kind of weather should I expect?

Keep in mind, I have crazy hair. Please let me know how the humidity should/will be. I've been playing around with some new products that I think may be of help. I'm praying they'll help.

Pray for my hair. Pray for my packing. Pray from my buddy whom won't be carrying/dragging my suitcase (mainly now because I have a point to prove to him). And for those of you that really know me, pray for me as you know whom I'm going with.
