Are you one of the over 6000 women who are headed to the
National Hearts at Home Moms Conference in Bloomington, Illinois this weekend?
What FUN we are going to have! Michelle Duggar (you know, the one with 19 children of the Reality Show), Dr. Juli Slattery, and even the Fly Lady are going to be there! And yep, Yours Truly will be there too!
Are you wondering what you should wear this weekend? Here's a few packing tips, just in case you're going to go. And if you're NOT going, then, girl, why not? Too far away? Well then, maybe we'll catch you at one of the regional conferences this year in Colorado Springs or Rochester, MN!
Okay, so you're not going to one of those? Well, then, I'll still bet you may be packing for SOME kind of get away weekend this year, right? No matter where you're going, this packing list will help you get there in style and not worry about WHAT to Wear!!!!!!!
All below items will fit into a Carry On Bag!
This is how you DON'T want your suitcase to look:
The key is to ROLL your clothes to pack as efficiently as possible. This will help you get more clothes in less space.
If you're folding some of the clothes instead of rolling, fold them in clear bags (drycleaner bags are ideal) for less wrinkling.
Face Cleanser Towlettes (get at Walmart, Target, Drug Stores for under $5), Moisturizer, Your Makeup, Trial sizes of Shampoo and Conditioner, Hair products, Flat Iron if needed. (Hotels have blow dryers so no need to bring yours. They have shampoo and soap too, but sometimes they don't have conditioner. Tootbrush/paste, Any medication/vitamins you take, put in travel pill container. Hair brush/comb. Put all of this into your toiletry bag.
Special Note: If you are flying and will be going thru Security, put your liquids in a plastic bag as you'll need to pull this out to have them check it. Make sure your liquids are in bottles no larger than 3 ounces.
CLothes/Shoes to Pack:
1-2 pair of flattering jeans
1-2 pair of yoga pants or capris
1 skirt or casual dress
3 tops in styles and colors that flatter you
1-2 cami's for layering
1 sweater or lightweight jacket
1 pair of comfy shoes for walking
