So I made a list. And I've shopped plenty (because cold weather clothes is on scary discount at this point.. YAY!). And I've packed.
Let me tell you... Packing is such a process for a girl like me that its more stressful than anything. And I swear in my mind I'm avoiding over packing... but some may argue that I don't really make much of a difference at all. I just need some kind of organized mess, or I'm a mess. I started by typing up a whole list of things I could possibly bring. Then I would write down outfits as I go. I figured about 14 outfits total for the 7 day cruise because we need to dress up a couple nights and because I don't feel like being the kind to wear her jeans and t-shirt from all day to dinner... come on, lobster and steak and who knows what else... I need to look decent and deserving of that second round of food! But alas, I packed, it all fit in my decent sized luggage, and I'm ready to go!
The planning of activities has been a bit troublesome too. Like seriously, who can choose when there are about 20 excursions to do! Like seriously helicopter rides to glaciers, dog sledding, zip lining, tours on tours on tours, whale watching, I could probably go ice fishing if I looked for it, some lumber jack shows (insert whistle here), etc. But we finally nailed it down to a couple of sight seeing tours and some zip lining! WOO HOO! check that off my bucket list!
And by some miracle, although it may rain while we are there, it looks like my zip lining day will not be needing a rain check! SCORE! I'm sure I'll have a wonderful story about that day seeing that I'm terrified of heights! Let's see how well this goes for me.
Can't wait to share my pictures and my adventures with you. This journey of planning and packing has been quite an adventure in of it's self. Stay tuned!
