Cheese and Whine

The Smithwick's Christmas Family Portrait (Too bad Knox wasn't looking. He was too busy looking at Willie)
My Family
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I am so excited about going to Cancun in TWO days! And my birthday in 5 days!!! So, if I don't get a chance to write for a week, I apologize.

I am stressing over packing. Do any of you do this? I have swimsuits and clothes packed, but I am not sure I like what I've packed. Ugh. I hate this and I do it every single time. I think I will re-read the dress attire for the restaurants seven million more times. Do you have any tips for me?

And I am so proud of my USF Bulls for making it to another bowl game. Too bad it's in Toronto. Who has a bowl in Toronto in January? Not cool!!!

Have fun on your trip!!! Enjoy every single minute of it! I also get stressed over packing. My husband and I went to Brazil last September and I wasn't so sure I liked what I had packed, so it took me days to finally figure out what I really wanted to bring. Have a blessed Day!

I think it took me two days to pack for Hawaii... and when I got there I realized I didn't bring enough "nice" clothes! I figured I would be in my bathing suit most of the time (which I was), but I didn't think about nighttime clothing! These are things I won't do next time we go on a trip:
1. Don't bring jeans. HI is too hot for jeans.
2. Don't bring more than one nice white tank top when the only 'bottoms' you have are white shorts and jeans.
3. Bring more than enough comfy but cute dresses - I ended up wearing some of my 'c-b-c' dresses as swimsuit coverups when we went out and about, so I couldn't wear them to dinner at night!
4. You don't need to bring every swimsuit you own - you will probably wear your 2 favorite all week.

That's advice to myself - hopefully it helps you too!

Cute Christmas pics! Knox is SO adorable...don't you just love little mini dachsunds?

I do the same exact thing when I pack. I always second guess myself, even after the suitcase is packed and on the plane, haha!
