Three weeks to go!!!!!

Just envision me screaming (with joy)
and doing the happy dance! hehehe

Literally three weeks from now I will be heading out to visit my friend Brittany from Va-Voom Vintage and will also be working with the amazing photographer Kay Murray from Reverie Revel. Kay also has a beautiful blog called Vintage Reveries.

I am still not prepared of course. Honestly, if I wasn't so busy I probably would have everything done already but such is life. Tomorrow I am taking care of some trip business--getting some paperwork in order, going to Target for some toiletries, and purchasing a few other little things from Etsy.

I also need to get a new camera which happily is not that expensive. My old one has gone through four years of hard labor, working everyday taking photos of my growing little ones. Its time for a new one. I also have to finish my spring cleaning, which began today because if my house is not in order before I leave it will bother me.

Yes, I am one of those women who will not feel good if I leave my family unorganized and in a messy home! I take my housewife duties seriously and although I don't beat myself about it if it doesn't get done right away. I do feel I want to leave my family in a good state of being before I leave to have my vintage fun with Brittany.

And boy will it be fun!!! I cannot share all of our plans because I do want to surprise you all but lets just say Brittany and I will have four days of jammed packed vintage events. Many folks are leaving for Viva Las Vegas right now and I hope they all have a blast. For me I find doing a more low key and personal trip far more enjoyable. I also am more of a 1940's gal and VLV is geared towards the 1950's, in particular the rockabilly scene.

With that said, I am looking forward to getting all my things put together and yet still in awe that I am traveling on my own to a state I have never been to! Its been a long, long time since I have traveled on my own so this is all very new for me.  It will be my official first time traveling alone as a mother. I hope I do a good job holding it together. Luckily Brittany totally understands how I feel so I plan to skype with my family at least once while I am away.

So, the countdown begins! I cannot wait to share all the neat things I see and do with all of you!!



  1. Gosh, 3 weeks?! I have a lot to do in that little time too. I cant wait for you to get here. Lets pray for gorgeous weather and amazing finds at the thrift stores! :p

  2. I am SO excited for you to come to St. Louis! Cannot wait to work with you as a photographer and meet you as a friend. It will be SO fun!

  3. Oooohhh, I'm bursting with excitement for you and and just know that you gals are going to have a fantastic time.

    I'm with you when it comes to wanting to ensure your house is in good order and that your family will be taken care of while you're away. I'm exactly the same way, too.

    Counting down the moments with you, dear girl, and wishing all the strength and time you need to prepare for this marvelous experience.

    Oodles of hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
