  1. 1. I am shocked you aren't taking you laptop! I can't remember the last trip I took and didn't take it with me. OK, I didn't take it rafting, but I had it in Arizona before and after!

    2. I'm amazed at how light you packed! What an inspiration to us all! :) Seriously, I wish I could pack lightly like you do!

    3. The shower containers are too cute! I love the labels, fabulous idea to make sure you aren't washing your hair with body wash!

    Have a great trip! I can't wait to read the posts when you get back!
